Mizoram’s apex and influential students’ body, the Mizo Zirlawi Pawl (MZP) on Wednesday, slammed the State Government for deplorable road condition between Lunglei and Tlabung town.
A statement issued by Tlabung sub-headquarters of MZP, said, “The National Highway 302 which links Lunglei district headquarters with Tlabung town in southern part of the State, bordering Bangladesh, is again in a complete shambles within six months of its repairing.”
The statement added the road has become almost out of bounds to be motor able.
Some sections of the road are even dangerous for commuters, it added.
It appealed to the State Government to repair the road at the earliest.
On October 17 last, Mizoram Truck Owners’ Association (MTOA) and Mizoram Truck Drivers’ Association (MTDA) had organized a strike by staying off the road in protest against bad road conditions on National Highway 306 (formerly NH-54) between Kawnpui and Aizawl.
MTOA general secretary, Dina Tlau, alleged that a number of road accidents had taken place because of the highway’s dilapidated condition, which also affected their vehicles badly.
The strike was called off on October 19 last after the State Government had repaired most bad sections of the national highway.
