Imphal, December 21 2016:
The Socialist Students Union of Manipur (SSUM) has demanded the State Government to declare UNC as a terrorist group.
In a press meet held at Manipur Press Club today, SSUM publicity secretary Naorem Tanoranjan said the UNC has repeatedly imposed economic blockade along National Highways on so many occasions and blamed the State and the Central Government's reluctance to act for the same.
He inquired why the State or the Central Government have not declared the UNC as a terrorist group till date and urged the State Government to declare the two UNC leaders who are presently in police custody, as wanted persons.
"The State Government did not hesitate to announce JCILPS co-convenor as a wanted person then, so why the reluctance now?", he queried.
SSUM is all set to launch different forms of protests against the UNC, he said while praying that the joint meeting of all political parties, CSOs and UNC bear a fruitful result.
