Ukhrul: The Joint Action Committee (JAC), representing commercial vehicles operating along the Imphal-Ukhrul road, has declared an indefinite bandh starting from March 6, 2024, Wednesday. This decision comes in response to the alleged illegal tax collection by valley-based Civil Society Organizations (CSOs).

The JAC, formed under the accord and support of All Tangkhul CSOs (TNL, TSL, TKS & TMN) and including all Ukhrul District Transporters and Tangkhul Drivers’ Union, has raised serious concerns about the continuous extortion faced by transport service providers.

According to a letter written to the chief minister N Biren Singh requesting for immediate intervention of the illegal tax collection by valley-based CSOs, specifically the Pony Conservation Forum and the All Manipur Welfare Federation, the JAC said these CSOs have been imposing daily illegal taxes on trucks, wingers, DI, and other taxi services plying the Imphal-Ukhrul route under the guise of donations.
