Port Blair, July 29: The State President, Bharatiya Janata Party, Andaman and Nicobar Islands, Shri. Ajoy Bairagi  has strongly registered his protest against the undemocratic and autocratic overnight decision of the Chief Secretary, Chetan B. Sanghi to stop the convoys connecting roadways between South Andaman and North & Middle Andaman.

A large number of people are stuck at both Districts of North and Middle Andaman and South Andaman because of the decision. Bairagi added that the decision is taken without consulting any political parties, elected representatives and PRI’s and such decisions should be taken in consultation with the stakeholders and public representatives.

He further said that the matter will be taken up at the appropriate level. Meanwhile in order to provide relief to the public, Bairagi has written a letter to the Director, Shipping Services requesting him to deploy Ships/Boats/Vessels from Kadamtala, Rangat, Baratang, Mayabunder, Diglipur, Little Andaman, Saheed Dweep, Swaraj Dweep, Campbell Bay and all other focal points of Nicobar District at the earliest.
