Imphal, August 18 2011:
With the State facing yet another spell of fuel shortage following the blockade imposed by the SHDDC, All Manipur School Students' Transporters Association has categorically stated that if the situation remains the same they may not be able to continue the service of ferrying students.
In a statement, Association general secretary Y Sunder has appealed to the Government to take up necessary measures and ensure fuel supply as in the past in the interest of the students.
Furthermore, the Association contended that even if the demand of Sadar Hills Districthood Demand Committee is genuine and justifiable, the mode of agitation taken up to press the demand is not as it is akin to cutting the supply line of poor people.
