In a press release, joint council chairman, Vitoshe Achumi, stated that the condition of the road has become deplorable and could endanger the lives of public travelling in the area.
The release stated that GBs and councils had a meeting and decided to impose indefinite bandh on NH-702(A) without prior information if the department failed to start repairing road within July 20, 2018. 
It cautioned that the National Highway Authority (NHA) of Nagaland will be held fully responsible for any untoward eventualities.
