Recently, the new settlers from far places have started blocking the way on every side, he said.
He said that the new settlers openly block the public way to reach the agricultural land and they have started fencing on all sides. The agricultural land owners asked them not to make obstruction but they still continued the obstruction by making fencing, he added.
Therefore, the agricultural land owners lodged a complaint to DC Imphal West, SP Imphal West and SDO Imphal West but no action has been taken up, he informed.
Hence, the managing committee urged the high authorities for removal of fencing and obstruction made in a public way for ingress and egress of agriculture.
