A planned blockade of government vehicles is scheduled to take place across Nagaland State from Monday, October 19. Several student unions have organized the event and plan to indefinitely block the movement of government vehicles in the area. The event has been organized to demand the regularization of public school teachers qualified under universal education schemes.
Previous related demonstrations began on October 12, where protesters blocked and seized government vehicles; however, the event was prematurely suspended following the death of a state minister.
The Dimapur and Kohima districts are anticipated to be the most affected areas. A heightened security presence and severe localized traffic disruptions are to be expected in the vicinity of the protests.
Those in Nagaland State are advised to monitor the situation, anticipate localized disruptions, and adhere to any instructions issued by the local authorities.
