Members of Manipur State Shumang Leela Council, Manipur State Council Indian Society for Cultural Cooperation & Friendship (ISCUF), Indian People's Theatre Association (IPTA), Manipur, Progressive Writers' Association, Manipur, All India Students' Federation (AISF) and other concerned organisations today staged a protest demonstration demanding to withdraw both the economic blockade and counter economic blockade.
Speaking to mediapersons, IPTA senior vice president Langol Iboyaima said that people of the State have been going through harrowing times due to economic blockade and counter economic blockade.
All sections of the people have been suffering because of the economic blockade.
UNC should have compassion, understand the difficult situation people are in and call off the economic blockade.
As Christmas and new year are approaching, UNC should take this moment to lift the economic blockade and let normalcy returns in the State.
With the positive response of UNC, let all the people of the State get to invite festivity into their homes with peace and harmony, he added.
