Indefinite bandh against deplorable road conditions announced in Jiribam


Jiribam, September 2: The villagers including students of Kashimpur, Mulargaon, Ahmedabad and Leisabithol have decided to call an indefinite bandh along the Kashimpur to Leisabithol road from the mid-night of September 5 against the miserable condition of the road.

Despite the road being the only means of communication for the villagers, due to the deplorable condition of the Kashimpur to Laisabithol road, even school going students undergo a lot of trouble to reach their school in time, they lamented.

Villagers told local media persons that some portions of the road has eroded by the flowing water of Ahmedabad canal at Ahmedabad village.

Although measures were taken up to reconstruct the eroded portion of the road, the erosion has only got severe.

The village authorities and the students of the four villages had approached the authority concerned repeatedly, the most recent being on August 26 at the office of additional Ddeputy commissioner (ADC), Jiribam, however no necessary steps have been taken up by the ADC so far to repair the road, they continued to lament.

As a result of government negligence, the village authorities as well as club members and students of the four villagers are constrained to launch an agitation from the mid night of September 5 by calling an indefinite bandh along the road, they said.

The villagers added that until and unless the government authorities take up any appropriate steps to improve the road condition they will continue with their agitation.
