Ukhrul- Imphal road may be bandh from May 3 onwards

IMPHAL: Closure of all Government establishments and offices in Ukhrul district from May 3 and an indefinite ban on vehicular movement on Ukhrul- Imphal road from midnight of May 2 in protest against the Government's failure to fulfill the charter of demands put up before the Government of Manipur have been threatened by The Tangkhul Naga Long (TNL).

The TNL has also strongly reacted against the abduction and brutal murder of truck driver PA Chinaoshang, who was engaged to transport stone and sand in the ongoing PMGSY road construction work from Sinakeithei to Leisan village, Ukhrul.

Given that till date no positive response has come from the State Government on the memorandum submitted by the TNL, the indifference of the Government has forced it to make such a decision. TNL have appealed to UNC leaders to support the agitation and added that it (UNC) has been urged to impose an indefinite economic blockade in case the State Government fails to respond to the charter of demands in time.

The TNL have assured the public that medical, water supply and electricity would be exempted while picketing/ besieging the Govt offices in Ukhrul.
