Non-local drivers, handymen denied entry
KAKCHING, 14th Apr: Villagers of Khangshin strongly opposed the entry of non-local drivers and handymen from Gujarat as transport operators of 20 trucks loaded with Bitumen reached Kakching Lamkhai on Tuesday. Prohibiting entry of the transporters led to chaos in the area.
The Bitumen was brought for construction of National Highway-102 (Imphal-Moreh highway) which is being executed by GR Infraprojects Limited. The situation was brought under control by a team of Kakching Police. The body temperatures of the drivers and handymen were checked by a team of District Surveillance Team and later they were allowed to return back.
