Big dam blockade called off for 2 days


Lakhim and Dhemaji districts are set to heave a sigh of relief. KMSS, AJYCP, TMPK have called off the big dam blockade from Saturday.


Addressing a press conference in Lakhimpur on Friday, KMSS leader Akhil Kumar Gogoi said that they would suspend the blockade on Saturday and Sunday. He said they have decided to call off the stir in view of the government’s appeal to create a congenial atmosphere for talks. “ We hope that the government will show its willingness for talks within the next two days,” said Gogoi.


He further criticized Arunachal Pradesh Chief Minister Nabam Tuki who very recently refused to halt the NHPC constriction work despite a hail of protest in Lakhimpur and Dhemaji.
