United NGOs Mission - Manipur (UNM-M) has appealed for lifting of the 80-day long economic blockade and 60-day long counter blockade at the earliest possible date.
In a press release, Secretary of UNM-M U Nobokishore observed that UNM-M fully recognized and respect the stand of all the organizations engaged in the ongoing economic blockade and counter blockade, but subjecting 27 lakh population to inconveniences from want of essential commodities like medicines, food items, etc should be reconsidered.
