Economic blockade has brought life to a standstill in Nagaland

The ongoing economic blockade in protest against the atrocities of Nagaland Police over the students of Assam has reached its third day today. More than three hundred trucks carrying amenities to Nagaland had been stranded at Rangajan Tini Ali on NH-39 near Golaghat. Rangajan Tini Ali have virtually turned into an abode of trucks. The ASSU has also imposed the blockade at Bokajan in Karbi Anglong district and Titator and Mariani in Jorhat district. The agitators are determined not to end the agitation at an early date without teaching a hard lesson to Nagaland.

As an aftermath of the ongoing economic blockade, acute crisis of food items and other daily amenities has severely affected Nagaland. On the other hand the Government of Nagaland has instituted a high level enquiry. The enquiry committee will be headed by Jane Alam, the Commissioner and Secretary of the Urban Development, Law and Justice and Labour and Employment Departments of the Government of Nagaland. The committee has been asked to submit its report within 15 days.
