Imphal, November 22 2016:
As the ongoing economic blockade continues to take toll on the people of Manipur, Imphal Municipal Corporation Deputy Mayor Meibon Phaomei appealed to UNC to withdraw the economic blockade.
Speaking to mediapersons today, IMC Deputy Mayor Meibon Phaomei stated that the economic blockade has largely affected the common people of the State.
Every issue can be resolved through dialogue.
As such, UNC should consider the harrowing inconveniences people have been facing and withdraw the economic blockade. "Such type of agitation can be considered as an unlawful activity.
Common people must not be targeted in order to pressure the State Government for any demand.
If the blockade continues, not only will it impact people severely but also create disharmony among the communities," he added.
The Deputy Mayor, who is also the former president of Zeliangrong United Club, Manipur Forum, urged UNC to withdraw the blockade within two days.
