Imphal, December 26, 2017
Angry people and civil societies in Tamenglong district in Manipur have forced suspension of the “sub-standard” construction of a road from Tuesday, officials said. The suspension of the construction works was announced to reporters on Tuesday by B.P. Athui, president of Zeliangrong Union, Tamenglong and some other civil organisations. In the presence of photographers and reporters, the activists peeled off patches of black toppings under construction, along the 40-km-long Tamenglong-Khongkhang road. Athui said there was no engineer or any responsible official at the under-construction road. The blacktopping was done by unskilled labourers over the un-swept dirt.
