There is one place in India where petrol now sells for Rs 190/L

A landslide and a damaged bridge have fuelled an increase in the prices of essential items in Manipur.



Imphal: A landslide and a damaged bridge have fuelled an increase in the prices of essential items in Manipur.

The Imphal-Dimapur and Imphal-Silchar highways, which are main supply routes to the land-locked state, have been blocked by a landslide and a damaged bridge, respectively.

Due to this, a litre of petrol is selling at Rs 160-190 in Imphal's grey market. The prices of onion, potato, pulses and other vegetable items have also doubled.

The Imphal-Dimapur highway was blocked after a heavy landslide in Nagaland's Phesama area in mid-August, which halted the flow of essential commodities. Repair work is on.

Transportation of commodities to Manipur via the Imphal-Silchar highway has stopped due to the deteriorating condition of a bridge along the highway. Border Roads Organisation (BRO) engineers are currently repairing the bridge.
