PANGIN/PASIGHAT, Mar 15: The 2nd phase Siang District Chakka bandh called by Siang District Headquarter Welfare Committee (SDHWC) starting from today for two days and 12 hours has passed off successfully and peacefully.

Baring certain exempted vehicles from the purview of the bandh, vehicular movements were completely restricted and people of the Siang district also whole heartedly co-operated with the Chakka bandh, informed Tatok Panor, General Secretary, SDHWC in a press note today. The bandh will last till 17th March 5.00 PM and if the state government continues to ignore our genuine demand we will be bound to launch an indefinite Siang District bandh, added SDHWC sources.  

The ongoing Chakka bandh is in protest against the alleged move of the state government to shift the district headquarters of Siang from its notified permanent headquarters Nyobo (Perang-Lampang). SDHWC has demanded for early development of infrastructure at Nyobo as  it was already notified as permanent headquarters of Siang district on November 24, 2014 last.
