Imphal, Feb 6,

State police who are well known for their expertise in controlling public agitation today were put in dilemma as protestors against CAB occupied half the road of Tiddim road in the western part without speaking or shouting a single world shunning all sort of vehicular movement.

Police team were left with no choice as protestors were mostly old lady plus students and they occupied the road not at any specific area but scattered to cover up the entire road. Half of the road on the southern part was let free but again with the number of marriage ceremony as well as already congested by the ever increasing number of vehicles witness the other side packed with vehicles. Police team who were on their way to foil the protest were busy controlling the traffic.

The diversion to the southern part of the road was made at Keishampat Junction , Dhobi Machu Leirak , Takhel leikai and Kwaikethel. Traffic movement was seriously affected by the kind of protest staged today and the police team seems to be in dilemma on whether to drive out the protestors or to control the traffic flow.

Convenor of the Manipur Peoples’ Against CAB , (MANPAC) Yumnamcha Dilipkumar , while talking to media persons said that the kind of protest is only the beginning. The MANPAC will continue to organise many form of protest in the coming days until the Citizenship Amendment Bill is withdrawn.

“We will intensify the protest against CAB till the Government of India withdraw it”, Dilip said.

Interestingly similar protest was also staged at Uripok, Hatta and at Lamboi Khongnangkhong.
