BISHNUPUR, March 12: Expressing resentment over the non maintenance of the road stretch from Ningthoukhong ward No 3 to Sadu Khuroi, the womenfolk of Ward No. 3 organised a sit in protest on Wednesday at Ningthoukhong Bazaar.
During the protest, a woman leader said that no candidate will be allowed to campaign for the forthcoming Lok Sabha election in the area unless the road stretch is mended soon.
The protestors also displayed placards reading “how long shall we live with dust”, “mend the road, not to invite agitation”, “mind the grievances of the people”, “make Sadu Chiru stretch of road functional” etc.
The protestors also expressed their desire to provide retaining wall on the river side of the road so as to protest the river band from further sinking as the road stretch is plying heavy vehicle carrying forest products, sands and building construction materials.
