Marangching villagers ban railway work, again

IMPHAL, 3rd Aug: Alleged failure of the state government to pay compensation to the affected villagers of Marangching village, Tamenglong has resulted in banning of the railway construction work again from August 1 onwards. Informing this, a statement issued by Senbo Engineering Limited additional general manager B Nagaraju has expressed concern that the company would not be able to complete the construction work as long as the issue of Marangching villagers exists.

Many highly skilled workers and heavy machineries are currently undertaking the tunnel execution work but if the issue continues to persist then the deadline set for completion of railway work might have to be reviewed, he said and informed that the company will be facing huge financial deficit. On the other hand, the company would find it tough to redeploy the workers, he added. Considering the value of the project, Nagaraju appealed to the people of Marangching to cooperate and allow the company to carry out its task.
