Even as the Workers Union Nagaland Pulp and Paper Company Limited (WU-NPPCL) imposed blockade on NH-61 at Tzudikong entered day two, in protest against delay in release of nine month salary, the Tuli Area Joint Council Forum (TAJCF) has extended support to the ongoing bandh. 
In a press release, TAJCF president, O Benjung Jamir, stated that while the WU-NPPCL was fighting for their genuine rights the responsible authorities (Hindustan Paper Corporation Ltd. and the government of Nagaland) seemed to be less concerned. The forum said that even after two days of protest no action was being initiated on the matter by the authorities.
TAJCF warned that if the authorities continued with such lackadaisical attitude, the forum “may even avoid the ensuing Independence Day celebration.”
PPC: Phom People’s Council (PPC) while extending strong support to the WU-NPPCL demands has appealed to the union to call off the indefinite blockade on humanitarian ground. 
In a press release, the council pointed out that with the blockade of NH-61 -- the only reliable route for the entire Longleng district -- the people were facing untold hardship and inconvenience. PPC said the blockade has especially affected the supply of essential commodities to the district. 
Further, the PPC also urged the responsible authority to resolve the grievances of the WU-NPPCL at the earliest.
