Tamenglong, August 28 2011:
The Zeliangrong Students Union Manipur deplored the undue imposition of prohibitory orders under section 144 of the CrPC along National Highway number 37 east and National Highway 53 including Noney area.
The State Government's move is biased and unjustified when compared to that of the soft corner guaranteed in support of the month long general strike, economic blockade and the indefinite high way bandhs launched by Sadar Hills Districthood Demand Committee which did not attract public wrath or Government offensive orders the ZSU release added.
The one day public uprising against the imminent loss of lands belonging to the Nagas in the event of granting district hood to Jiribam and the Sadar Hills/Kangpokpi, seems more irritating to the government, it said.
The Chief Minister's comment that the boundaries of the lands owned by the Government can be re-arranged or re-adjusted for administrative conveniences is a misleading assertion when Manipur is facing an acute controversy over the sought after merger of four Naga districts with Nagaland for unification or for an alternative arrangement outside the control of Manipur State.
Lands owned by certain as legacies of ancestors remain with the concerned land owners, not by outsiders though the Government may levy taxes.
The valley people wishes the territorial integrity of Manipur and the Manipur Nagas look the other way.
Lands owned by certain people as legacies of their ancestors remain with the concerned land owners, not with outsiders, though the government may levy taxes, he said.
Further, the statement also said that tyres of three Imphal bound trucks got punctured at Makru bridge and 22 AR stationed at Kaiphundai recovered the said trucks.
The army on duty ordered unloading of the goods and it was found that all three trucks were carrying IMFL with only a thin layer of potatoes concealing the liquor.
Army personnel on duty gave the truck drivers and handymen a sound thrashing, the illegal goods were diverted at Kaiphundai by the army.
