Following the assurance given by the authority concerned and the government, the indefinite ceasing of I-K-T road construction work was withdrawn on March 17, he said.  

Despite the repeated appeals and patience of the project affected families and landowners, the Authority failed to respond to the grievances of the villagers and failed to release the proposed entitled compensation for standing properties.

The proposed compensation was based on the joint survey conducted by the Line department, Government of Manipur on March 14 and 15, 2023, he stated.
