Kohima, Jul 18: Noklak area in Tuensang district has been cut off from the rest of the country for the last two weeks owing to landslides on the state highway connecting the district headquarters town of Tuensang, a delayed report received here said.
According to the report, rain-triggered landslides occurred over a long stretch of the road between Tuensang and Noklak.
Labourers under the Roads and Bridges Department of the PWD and volunteers were working to clear the debris, an uphill task in absence of bulldozer or excavator.
Reports said owing to lack of road communication prices of all essential commodities had soared.
Meanwhile, the Khiamniungan Students' Union (KSU), in an SOS to the state government, demanded immediate restoration of traffic on the vital road. They alleged that despite repeated appeals to the concerned department no step was initiated to restore the damaged road.
