Haflong: Following a 24-hour Dima Hasao and Karbi Anglong bandh called by a lesser-known armed organization – Dimasa National Liberation Army – normal life was affected in Dima Hasao on Saturday.

As it was the weekly market day at Haflong, traders as well as the public faced inconvenience due to the bandh, that too on the eve of Busu, the prime festival of the Dimasas. All business institutions, markets, banks, government and semi-government offices remain closed and public transport remained off the road.

The bandh was called by Dimasa National Liberation Army opposing the setting up of detention camp in Dima Hasao, Citizenship (Amendment) Act 2019 and implementation of panchayati raj system in Sixth Schedule area of Assam.
