PANGIN/PASIGHAT, Mar 17: The 2nd phase 60 hours Siang District Chakka bandh called by Siang District Headquarters Welfare Committee (SDHWC) which started from Wednesday ended peacefully today without any untoward incident.

During bandh, vehicular movements were completely restricted as the agitators blocked the roads at Sanggam Tinali, Tarak bus stand and Rottung despite heavy downpour. The people of the district also whole heartedly cooperated with the bandh.

 ‘If the state government continues to ignore our genuine demand we will be bound to launch an indefinite Siang District bandh which if not prevented will also hamper entire Siang district and its development,’ informed Tatok Panor, General Secretary, SDHWC, Pangin. The bandh ended with a note to organize a massive rally and a meeting shortly within few days where future course of action  will be finalized.

The ongoing Chakka bandh is in protest against the alleged move of the state government to shift the district headquarters of Siang from its notified permanent headquarters Nyobo (Perang-Lampang).
