Blockade of NH54 continues

Aizawl, Sept. 27: The All Barak Youth Students’ Association’s indefinite blockade of NH54 in protest against alleged harassment of migrant workers in Mizoram entered the second day on Thursday, affecting traffic along Mizoram’s lifeline.

On the other hand, the Central Young Mizo Association made a clarion call to citizens to be “prepared for any eventuality”, if the blockade continued any further.

A statement issued today after a central committee meeting of the association asked the people to remain calm.

Any steps to be taken would be under the guidance of the organisation, it added.

Around 8pm, some vehicles came through the barrier and drove into the state.

Kolosib deputy commissioner N. Rai, told The Telegraph that “three or four vehicles came through”.

“There was no force used. But I am yet to be informed whether the blockade has been lifted,” she said.
