R LESTER MAKANG
UKHRUL,5th Aug: Inhabitants of Lamlang Gate and its neighbouring villages are currently having a harrowing time as the area has been rendered isolated following massive landslides at various points due to heavy downpour since Saturday night. According to reports recieved here late Sunday evening, the area around Lamlang Gate village has remained cut-off from the rest of the district and the state, adding that various points along the Ukhrul-Lamlang road as well as the old Imphal-Lamlang roadway have been washed away by water current on the fateful night.

Villagers of the area informed that there also occurred a massive mudslide in between Pharung and Lamlang Gate villages causing total blockade of the roadway. Owing to snapping of road communication, inhabitants of the area are currently in a very difficult situation, the villagers informed and urged the authorities concerned to look into the dire situation at the earliest.
