Imphal, November 29 2016:
Protesting the UNC's ongoing economic blockade, clubs and locals of Bishnupur and surrounding areas have started launching counter economic blockade today at Old Cachar road (Tongjeimaril) which leads to Khoupum.
A large number of volunteers came out this morning to check if the vehicles are carrying any food items for business purpose.
A volunteer of the counter blockade said that they are not against a particular community but rather against the ongoing economic blockade which has created great difficulties for all the people.
UNC's blockade should be called off immediately and the State Government should also take up necessary steps to resolve the issue, the volunteer said.
