Itagar, March 11: Due to strike in Assam for consecutive four days, the essential goods and commodities could not reach some parts of Siang district in Aruchal Pradesh. The bandh call started on Monday following clashes at Silapathar, Assam between All Assam Students’ Union and Nikhil Bharat Bangali Udbastu Samanvay Samiti. The bandh call in Assam is likely to affect the whole of Siang district as most essential commodities reach the district from Assam, particularly through Silpathar. When contacted the officer in-charge of Silapathar police station, Pratul Bhuyan, informed that vehicles are plying normally on the tiol Highways but market places remained closed in the region. Meanwhile, people of East Siang District, particularly Ruksin Sub-Division are facing problems as the essential goods could not be transported to Aruchal.
