No let up in truckers’ logjam

An undeclared economic blockade against Nagaland continues to disrupt the supply of essential commodities in the neighbouring state.

Hundreds of trucks bound for Nagaland have been remaining stranded along the interstate border in Karbi Anglong, Jorhat and Sivasagar district plunging the state into yet another period of crisis.

Talking to Assam Times the truckers said that they won’t let anything go to Nagaland unless justice is ensured to Farid who was killed in mob attack.

“We don’t know when we will resume the supply of essential commodities. Let the government do justice to Farid. Then we will decide our next course of action,” said a trucker.  

They further said that the Nagaland government must give exemplary punishment to the youths who lynched the Karimganj businessman after dragging him out of the jail.

“Same punishments should be awarded to the policemen guarding the jail when the mob managed to storm into it to drag out Farid, who was a rape accused,” said a trucker.
