TSA Sadar Hills sets Mar 11 deadline to repair NH-2

CORRESPONDENT KANGPOKPI, 1st Mar: Highlighting the problems being faced by the public in general and students in particular due to dilapidated condition of the NH-2 which is covered with dust, Thadou Students’ Association (TSA) Sadar Hills Thursday served an ultimatum to the state government for repairing the Koubru Laikha to Kanglatongbi stretch of National Highway 2 by March 11.

Addressing media persons in this regard at Motbung, TSA general secretary Thangtinlen Haokip said the condition of the highway in the area has been a major concern for commuters for long but the government has not been paying any serious attention.

The dusty road has also become a health concern for many students who are forced to skip classes due to illnesses while roadside vendors and shop owners are facing severe inconvenience.

Despite repeated assurances given by the state government, no initiatives have been taken up so far to repair the highway, he said, while demanding the government to repair the highway before the monsoon season.

Setting March 11 as the deadline for the government to start repairing the highway, he also warned of taking recourse to extreme forms of agitation if the demand is not met.
