36-hour Kalain road blockade on Monday

SILCHAR, Oct 21: The United NH-44 Development Committee, a platform of various transport organizations, has called a 36-hour road blockade and chakka bandh of NH-44 on October 26 in protest against the government’s indifferent attitude towards the renovation of Kalain-Gumra road.

Sources said picketers would block the road at Malidahar-Katigorah point which connects Barak Valley, Tripura and Mizoram with rest of the country.

The decision of the agitation was taken today at a citizen’s meet held at Kalain MV school. The meeting was presided over by senior citizen Sukumar Bhattacharjee. Also many leaders from various political parties attended the meeting.

Local AUDF MLA Ataur Rahman Majharbhuiya, while speaking on the occasion, lambasted the State Government for its failure in maintaining the road. He said this road is a perfect example of the government’s step-motherly attitude towards Barak Valley. Katigorah ZP members Subrata Chakraborty and Bhrigulal Das also extended their support to the proposed bandh. THE SENTINEL
