Haflong, March 9, 2019:

The rail blockade that was being held since 7 March in Dima Hasao district has finally been called off at 1:30 pm on Saturday after the Government extended a hand to the agitating bodies, offering to hold talks wherein they can express their grievances. The blockade was being organized by the NC Hills Indigenous Students’ Forum and Indigenous Women’s Forum.

Conversion Compensation for the affected people from 5 am on 7TH March 2019 is hereby called off on 9TH March at 1:30 pm after receiving invitation letter from the H’ble Chief Minister, Government of Assam for a final discussion to settle our long pending demand for the payment of Railway Compensation.”
