Finding no solution to the problem, Monday hundreds of local women blocked the road in Taishama area under Natun Bazar police station. Holding placards in their hands women from three villages of West Ekchari, North Ekchari and Poangbari blocked the road. Many vehicles were stuck on both sides of the road due to road blockade. The police of Notun Bazar police station reached the spot on learning about the road blockade.

After long hours of road blockade, the SDO of the Public Works Department came and assured the agitators to resolve the issue as early as possible.
