Manipur blockade to continue despite poll dates’ announcement: UNC assert
Morung Express | IANS | New Delhi, January 4
The United Naga Council (UNC) on Wednesday said that they will continue with the economic blockade despite the announcement of Manipur assembly elections by the Election Commission. According to the UNC — apex body of the Nagas based in Manipur — elections cannot be held peacefully in the Naga-inhabited areas of Manipur until the prevailing problems are resolved.
“The blockade will continue. Solving of Manipur’s problems has to be done through dialogue between the parties in conflict. So far, the government of Manipur has failed to respond politically. “We have no other option but to intensify the blockade, no matter what the Election Commission has announced regarding the polls in the state,” K.S. Paul, former President of the UNC, told IANS from Manipur.
