Source: Hueiyen News Service

Imphal, March 11 2013: Demanding non-issue of carriage permit to any vehicle other than buses along Burma-Sugnu road before finalization of a definite State Transport Policy, Burma-Sugnu Road Union blocked the road near Burma-Sugnu Road Parking area in Keishampat today giving a tough time to the City Traffic Police, who had to use heavy cranes to move away several passenger buses parking there to block the road.

Blocking of the road by parking buses in the middle of the road started off around 10 am.

The drivers left their buses in the middle of the road creating problems to the passers-by.

On receiving the report of the road blockade, a team of police led by DSP Victoria of Traffic Police rushed to the spot and called out the drivers to move away their respective buses.

However, as no driver responded, cranes were brought from the Transport Department to move away the buses.

Speaking to media persons in connection with their agitation, President of Burma-Sugnu Road Union Chatukini stated that there is no harm in issuing permits to Tata Wingers for doing service along Burma-Sugnu road.

However, issuing of permit before a proper a Transport Policy is set up in the State is not acceptable under any circumstances.

Moreover, a case over the issue is still pending in the court.

On the other hand, Pallel Tata Wingers Owners and Drivers Welfare Association has decided to file a criminal contempt of Court case against Indo-Burma-Sugnu Road Bus Owners Welfare Association for defying the order of the Court and prohibiting issuing of contract carriage permit to Tata Wingers.

Speaking to media persons in this regard, advocate Kh Tarunkumar informed that a single bench of Gauhati High Court passed an order on February 13, 2013 directing the concerned authority of the State Government to discuss and take a decision over the issue of providing contract carriage permit to Tata Wingers plying along Imphal-Pallel via Burma-Sugnu road.

But instead of respecting the court order, Indo-Burma-Sugnu Road Bus Owners Welfare Association has resorted to blocking roads and threatening to launch various intense agitations if the State Government issues carriage permit to any vehicle except buses along Burma-Sugnu road before a definite Transport policy is formulated.

This is nothing but total violation of the court order.
