Agitation over bumpy highway
The condition of the Andaman Trunk Road (ATR) continues to haunt business owners and the general public. The ATR Truck Owners Association has demanded immediate repair of the ATR/NH from Jirkatang to Diglipur and has threatened to launch a protest. In a letter addressed to the Lt. Governor, the association demanded a positive line of action within 10 days, failing which, the association would launch a protest. Over the past years several protests have been organised against the condition of the ATR, which is the lifeline of ‘South Andaman’ and ‘North and Middle Andaman’, but nothing has changed.
