Imphal, August 24 2011:
The UNC said it has exempted the transportation of medicines and other life saving drugs and also the carrying of oxygen with immediate effect from the purview of its indefinite bandh on humanitarian ground.
The UNC, however said those transporters carrying these life saving drugs and oxygen should possess with them some sort of documents to prove their authenticity.
Meanwhile, the UNC has expressed its fury that the state government of Manipur would only use its force on the Naga protestors but decided to remain mute when "others" were resorting to even violent means of protest.
The UNC pointed out that there have been several instances where force were used on the Naga protestors by the state government.
"But the state government of Manipur chose to remain mute when there have been violent agitations on the NHs resorted by the volunteers of the Sadar Hills Districthood Demand Committee in the last 24 days," rues the UNC today.
The UNC alleged that many Naga protestors got injured yesterday in Chandel district when the Manipur police commandos tried to foil the protest rally.
