PM’s stern warning to ‘individuals blocking roads’

“I am concerned about individuals blocking roads and demanding unnecessary compensation, and not allowing Government officials to attend to urgent work,” said the PM.

“This is causing serious public inconvenience, and we cannot afford to have individuals holding the public and the Government to ransom.

“The law clearly states that there is a 40-metre corridor for national highways, and this is public land that should not be obstructed.

“These corridors will now be strictly enforced through the introduction of laws with strong penalties.
