Dimapur, May 16 2010: The people in Tamenglong district are now heavily depending on the Tamei-Tening road to transport essential commodities from Dimapur.

The transporters mostly carry rice from Dimapur to Tamenglong district via Peren district of Nagaland.

It is worth noting that the distance from Tamei in Tamenglong district to the nearest Nagaland village is just 30 kilometres and its been for years now that good number of taxis have been plying in this link road.

Once the Barak bridge is over, Tamei-Tening road will be the shortest road to reach Dimapur from Imphal.

The food stock in the Tamenglong district depleted after the imposition of counter blockade by the people in the Manipur valley.

As the counter blockade continues in Imphal, the hill district of Ukhrul too depends on the other roads that connects Nagaland without touching Imphal.

The Chandel people in turn look for the roads that link the district to Ukhrul so that essential commodities can be transported without passing Imphal.
