The Mokokchung Town Lanur Telongjem (MTLT), which roughly translates as a Union of Mokokchung town’s youth, has expressed “strong solidarity with the Lotha and Rengma brothers” in calling bandh on vehicular movement on National Highway – 2 (erstwhile NH 61) on October 7, 2015.
In a press statement today, the MTLT stated that the department concerned has neglected this important stretch of road for so many years which has caused so many inconveniences to hundreds of commuters every day. “The MTLT also understands the frustration of the Lotha Hoho and the Rengma Hoho over the pathetic condition of the NH -2 within the two sectors of Tseminyu and Wokha. “The MTLT is also equally frustrated at the deplorable condition of the National Highway – 2 which connects a number of districts with the capital, Kohima. It must be noted that here there are thousands of commuters traveling on this important National Highway.
As such the MTLT is much concerned about the safety of the commuters traveling on this highway, especially the Wokha – Tseminyu stretch.
The MTLT is also aware of the many accidents that had happened on this stretch of highway, and the cause is mostly due to the pathetic condition of the road.”
As such, it stated, the MTLT strongly supports the Lotha Hoho and Rengma Hoho in calling a bandh on vehicular movement at the NH-2 on October 7. The MTLT expresses solidarity to the Lotha and Rengma brothers and sisters in their quest for better roads and connectivity which is the lifeline of a progressive society, it stated.
“The MTLT also strongly appeals the concerned department to listen to the cry of the people and repair the stretch of the National Highway – 2 between Tseminyu and Wokha at the earliest in the interest of public welfare.”
