The Synjuk ki Waheh Shnong East Jaiñtia Hills District (SWSEJHD) has set a two-week deadline for the state government to repair the atrocious condition of National Highway 6 and the Sutnga-Saipung road.
The decision was taken at an executive committee meeting of the synjuk held on September 7, wherein the members expressed concern over the pot-hole ridden highway that has inconvenienced the public for over two years now.
President of the synjuk, Hambertus Nongtdu said the highway which connects Assam, Manipur and Tripura, continues to be in a sorry condition and pose a danger to commuters, besides frequent break down of vehicles and traffic jams daily.
“It is surprising that despite being well aware of the condition of the highway, the state government has looked down upon the district and continues to remain adamant and failed to take any appropriate measures to address it,” he said.
Nongtdu also said that the synjuk had met with the Chief Minister last month and presented their concerns but has not acted ever since. He warned that if the government fails to act within two weeks, the synjuk will take its own course of action.
