Locals of Thumbuthong and Thangapat area in Imphal East today begin indefinite road blockade at Thumbuthong area demanding immediate repairing of the road stretch between Thumbuthong and Palace Compound as well as road stretch between Thumbuthong and Wangkhei leading through Thangapat. A committee called Thangapat Lambi demand committee (TLDC) has been formed and volunteers of the committee today staged a sit-in-protest in the middle of the road preventing all sorts of vehicular movement along the route.
Local MLA E Chand visited the protest site and appealed them to withdraw the agitation as the government is in no position to repair the said portion of work due to financial constrain. The MLA however asserted to fill the potholes, which was flatly denied by the local agitators.
