Meanwhile, the recent blockade has impacted the entire community and the industrial estate in Pasakha.
ABI’s General Secretary Jochu Thinley said the industries have suffered due to the blockade.

Also, it has created inconveniences for the employees to go to their duties. It has brought a lot of difficulties for the industries and the community. Knowing that the Pasakha Industrial Estate is one of the highest revenue contributors, there should be effective mitigating measures,” he said.
DoR and ABI had once opted to find alternative route to the industrial estate, but it was not feasible, according to SASEC’s Project Manager, Sonam Tobgay.
