The Manipur government has on Thursday informed Myanmar authority no vehicles from the neighbouring country would be allowed to violate Indian traffic rules and regulation on Indian territory.  

The development comes after Manipur authority has learnt that Myanmar vehicles entering India through Indo-Myanmar Friendship Bridge at Gate No 1 have been violating Indian traffic rules and regulation while proceeding towards Namphalong Market.

In a letter to Deputy Commissioner, Tamu, Myanmar, Kh Raghumani Singh, Deputy Commissioner, Tengnoupal district said it has been observed that Myanmar vehicles entering India through Indo-Myanmar Friendship Gate No 1 have been violating Indian traffic rules and regulation.

This was resulted in accidents in the past and there are risks of tragic accidents taking place in future again, the letter said.

“You are therefore requested to kindly instruct all Myanmar vehicles to abide by Indian traffic rules and regulation while entering Indian territory without fail immediately,” the letter further informed the Tamu Deputy Commissioner.
