KBYO warns anti-social elements
Dimapur, Sep. 8 (EMN): Kuda ‘B’ Youth Organisation (KBYO) has warned against anti-social elements indulging in late night parties, alcohol and drug abuse resulting in brawl and disturbing public tranquillity and littering on Dhansiri Bridge.
The resolution to this effect was taken during a special meeting held on September 8, wherein the members deliberated on various agenda of concern.
An update from KBYO president, Rokovilie Savino, and the secretary, Keviuchü Meyase, informed that in view of the menace of abuse of the bridge, the house decided to impose a total ban on misuse of space on the bridge.
It stated that no person/ persons or groups would be allowed to loiter on the Kuda bridge especially at late night apart from normal commuting. It informed that KBYO would fix side barricades to prevent elements from undue occupation and misuse of space on the ends of the bridge.
It warned that anyone caught indulging in alcohol consumption, abuse of drugs, partying, creating nuisance, disturbing public peace and tranquillity with loud music etc. on or both ends of the Kuda bridge would be doing so at their own risk of facing appropriate action by the KBYO for which the youth would not be held responsible.
It also stated that anyone caught indulging in immoral activity, littering the bridge or throwing waste disposals on the river would be penalised with monetary fines as per quantum of offence.
In this connection, KBYO requested the concerned authority to install flood lamps at both ends of the bridge at the earliest. Further, it requested the concerned department to fix wire-mesh/ nets along both sides of the bridge railings to prevent the menace of throwing hazardous waste materials (including decomposed livestock etc.) into the river while at the same time serving as a safety measure for commuters/ pedestrians.
