Imphal, December 19 2016:
BJP MLA Kh Joykishan has appealed to the UNC to lift the indefinite economic blockade in view of the extreme misery being endured by all sections of people.
Speaking to media persons at the Nityaipat Chuthek office of the BJP today, Joykishan said that he would leave for Delhi tomorrow to urge the Central leaders to intervene and bring a solution to the issue.
Putting the entire population of a State under ransom in the name of protesting a Government policy or demanding something can never be vindicated, and it is something which is not seen in any other part of the world, Joykishan said.
The valley dwellers are not Meiteis alone.
If anything untoward results from the indefinite economic blockade, the UNC should be held accountable, he said.
The MLA appealed to the UNC to lift the economic blockade and launch another mode of agitation.
While appealing to all section of people to maintain calm, Joykishan called upon all political parties to tackle the issue collectively in the interest of the people.
