Imphal, January 02 2017:
Delhi Manipur Society (DeMaS) is organising a sit-in protest on January 4 at Jantar Mantar to condemn UNC's indefinite economic blockade.
In a statement, DeMaS said that political demand and agitation should be taken out democratically.
Stating that the economic blockade has paralysed the normal life of all the people, the statement said that UNC must withdraw the economic blockade immediately on humanitarian ground.
Despite the intolerable hardships, the issue is yet to resolved by the authorities concerned.
It is high time every right thinking people, organisation denounce such attitude towards the innocent civilians, the statement said.
It further said that the society has also started consulting other right thinking organisations and civil societies in order to file a complaint in the Supreme Court to declare UNC as an unlawful organisation.
DeMaS has urged all the Manipuris residing in Delhi to join the sit-in protest as a gesture of solidarity with the people of Manipur and to make it clear that economic blockade has no place in a civilised society.
