All India Trade Union Congress (AITUC) today alleges Union Home Department for interrupting to the setting up of National High Way Force. Speaking to the one day political conference of the AITUC, Imphal East District held at Irawat Bhavan Auditorium today, General Secretary of AITUC L. Sotinkumar said that even though the people of the state has been demanding High Way Protection Force from a very long time the state government under the directives of the Union Home Ministry has not taken up any initiative to establish the High Way Protection Force as they fear strong opposition from the NSCN-IM.
He further added that the demand for setting of a National Highway Security protection force in national highway is for the security of the drivers as the route is frequently blocked by anti social elements.
Sotin termed Modi led government as anti worker by re-establishing the labour law which extended the working hours from 6 to 12 hour per day.
President of Imphal East district AITUC Tomba Meitei and president of TUCC Manipur Kh Gyaneshor Singh also attained as main speakers.
