Protest march by students for road

PONGCHAU, Sep 30: The All Khakam Students’ Union (AKSU) in Pongchau circle of Tirap district on Saturday took out a protest rally at Kamhua Noknu village, demanding early completion of the Mintong-Khasa road.
AKSU president Pauwang Wangsa said work on the 25-km “controversial” road has been delayed for the last three decades. “It was first constructed in 1979,” he said.
Highlighting the hardships faced by the people of the area due to bad communication, the union demanded maintenance work to be carried out on the road within a week, and proper execution of the current project from Mintong to Khasa.
