    Haflong : With the inauguration of Market shed at Khepre Bazar a long standing demand of the people from four constituencies of N C Hills Autonomous Council was fulfilled on Tuesday.

    The Market shed at Khepre located 110 km from Haflong at Assam- Nagaland bordering area measuring 100 feet by 85 feet implemented by the Diyung valley Development Block, Maibang under 5th finance commission 2017-18 was inaugurated by the Chief Executive Member of N C Hills Autonomous Council Sri Debolal Gorlosa on Tuesday.

    The Khepre market has been considered to be the interstate market, since people from at least eight villages of neighboring State Nagaland also visit the market to sell and purchase their produce in addition the people of at least fifteen villages of four constituencies like Wajao, Semkhor, Hajadisa and Diger.

    The people of Khepre area had been demanding market shed since long as they had to suffer a lot due to the absence of a good market shed as the villagers of the area are mostly agriculturist and produce huge quantity of sesame, paddy etc.

    CEM Gorlosa in his speech said that the present Executive Committee was always concerned for the development of the district and its people. The market shed will also help the locals to sell their locally grown produces, thus giving them livelihood and help to boost economy. He also disclosed that a good amount of fund has been sanctioned for the bridges and the existing road from Noblaidisa to Khepre and beyond as the portion from Nablaidisa to Tongikro of the most popular Khejurband – Khepre road was not in good condition.
