Cong bandh shuts Dimapur

Dimapur, May 19: Normal life was paralyzed here on Monday during the 12-hour bandh called by the Congress in protest against State government’s failure to contain violence and curb the skyrocketing of prices of essential commodities. All shops, business establishments, banks and government offices remained closed as vehicles remained off the road. The district administration said all normal activities came to a grinding halt except emergency services. Although no major incidents were reported during the day, the passengers of out-bound and in-coming trains had a harrowing time as bandh imposers restricted the movement of pedestrians also. The Congress had earlier alleged government remained like a mute spectator despite spate of factional clashes in and around Dimapur that claimed several lives in recent time. Meanwhile, District Congress Committee, Dimapur, has expressed gratitude to the general public for their support to the bandh.DCC, Dimapur, president Roben Lotha, alleged DAN government had failed to curb the spiraling prices of essential commodities. He said rampant extortions and other forms of taxations had made life difficult for the people.Lotha said the law and order situation in entire State was a reflection of the performance of Neiphiu Rio led DAN government. “Anti-social elements are at large and the state government is in slumber. Whatever semblance of normalcy prevails is because of NGOs, civil societies, churches, GBs, DBs, mothers and other organizations,” he added.
