Imphal, June 5:

Coordinating Committee on Manipur Integrity (COCOMI) has appealed to the transporters not to ply on the National Highway 2, which the Kuki group has lifted on a temporary basis.
Coordinator of COCOMI, Jitendra Ningomba, while speaking to media persons said that the members of the COCMI have urged the Union Home Minister Amit Shah to open the National Highway uninterruptedly.

He said that there is no use of plying on the road if the National High Way is not protected.
