Hunger strike for road revival

MARGHERITA: The Nagorik Surakhya Samity in Margherita on Friday staged a 10 hour hunger strike demanding immediate steps to repair the National Highway No 38 which has been languishing in dire strait for years.

The leaders of the local organizations thronged the Borgolai Tiniali in the morning and started sitting on hunger strike for 10 hours.

Talking to Assam Talks, Prakash Sarma and Amit Debnath said that despite repeated appeal the authority refused to act. "Now we think the democratic way us the hunger strike. Let's see what is in store" said Sarma.

The vital road touches Borgolai, Segunbari and Tirap Colliary where a huge portion is almost non motorable.
