Nagaland News

DIMAPUR, MARCH 27: As the bandh called by Southern Angami Public Organization (SAPO) continues, the All Assam Manipuri Youths’ Association (AAMYA) has declared indefinite counter bandh along the Assam part of the Assam Nagaland Highway No. 39 with effect from midnight of March 27 (Sunday).
The AAMYA said the SAPO-sponsored bandh has left people, trucks and vehicles bound for Imphal stranded resulting in unbearable physical and mental torture and socio-economic crisis.
In a statement, AAMYA CC Chief Advisor, Kundal Singha and general secretary, AAMYA, HDC, N Thangal Singha stated that they decided to imposed indefinite counter bandh as SAPO failed to respond to their appeal to end the ongoing indefinite bandh imposed by them.
“AAMYA is also deeply annoyed with the indifference of the Nagaland Government which is supposed to have solved the crisis at the earliest”, it said adding AAMYA cannot remain a mute spectator when people are harassed for no good reasons.
Stating that blocking the highway is a serious insult to humanity, the AAMYA said it had no intention to do the same but it took the extreme step out of compulsion.
However, it said during the bandh, students going for exams, ambulance with patients, police and paramilitary forces on duty, press/media, religious and marriage ceremonial parties are exempted.
The bandh will continue unless and until SAPO withdraws the indefinite bandh in the Nagaland part of the NH-39, it said and requested trucks and transport associations are requested to co-operate.
