A club in Jiribam has threatened to close down the inter village road connecting Dibong Khunou and Kadamtala

A civil body in Jiribam has threatened to close down the inter village road connecting Dibong Khunou and Kadamtala, which links the National Highway-37 and demanded for its immediate repair.

The Yaipha Lamjing Club, (YLC), Dibong Khunou, made the demand for the repair of the road.

General secretary of the club, H Priyananda Singh said the road towards the south of the national highway which leads to Jiri College is in very bad shape, creating a lot of inconveniences to travel.

There were instances of closing the road by villagers in the past while demanding for its repair. However, the authorities never responded practically, he added.

Stating that army officer's headquarter and power grid are also located along the road Priyananda pressed the government to take up road repairing works immediately. If not, the road will be closed indefinitely, he added.

Singh also appealed to the people of Dibong Khunou and Kadamtala and employees to support when the club takes up agitation.
