Imphal, November 14 2016:
Members of the All Manipur Working Journalists' Union (AMWJU) today staged a protest demonstration in front of Manipur Press Club here against the indefinite economic blockade imposed by UNC which has landed all sections of people in extreme misery.
AMWJU president Wangkhemcha Shamjai said that people have been facing extreme misery as essential commodities are running out stocks while petroleum products are no longer available.
Reporters have been facing a precarious position as they have no fuels to go for collection of news reports.
The State Government should take up necessary actions immediately in order to get the economic blockade rolled back, Shamjai said.
He also appealed to UNC to lift the blockade in the larger interest of the general public.
The protesters put up placards which read, "Lift the economic blockade", "No petrol, no reporting" etc.
