Shillong: The Hynniewtrep Achik National Movement (HANM), an organisation in Meghalaya today in protest against the unresponsive attitude of the NHAI to its demands temporarily locked the toll gate at 7th mile Pasyih, West Jaintia Hills District.
It may be mentioned here that the organisation has demanded that NHAI must repair the road from 4th Mile till Malidor which is in very bad condition with lots of potholes that even led to accident it is alleged. But this demand fall into deaf ears. The fact that the collection of tax is going on despite the failure to ensure a safe motorable road irked the organisation.
This lack of sensitivity to their demand prompted the HANM to take this drastic action to compel this building authority into action. The organisation put a deadline that the repairing work must start within six days failing which the twp toll gates in Jaintia Hills will be permanently closed.
Present at the site among others were, Mr. Ency shadap, President HANM East Jaintia, Mr. Lukas Dkhar President HANM Ladrymbai Unit , Mr. Kartik Shadap Genenral Secretary HANM Narwan Unit and Mr. Damonmi Dkhar Ex-General Secretary Central Body.
