Imphal, November 24 2016:
Members of CPI, Khurai Local Council today staged a protest demonstration urging UNC to call off the ongoing economic blockade.
The sit-in was also joined by the members of All Manipur Nupi Marup, Khurai Sabha.
CPI, Manipur State executive member RK Amusana said that people have been going through difficult times due to the blockade.
UNC should hold a peaceful dialogue with the Centre and State Government.
At the same time, both the Central Government and State Government must take up necessary steps to bring an amicable solution.
The blockade has not only affected one particular community.
It has taken its toll on people of all the communities of the State, RK Amusana said.
UNC should withdraw the economic blockade before the people start agitating, he added.
