In response to the prolonged restriction of movement in Manipur, the All India Trade Union Congress (AITUC), Manipur, pressed for the immediate establishment of a Highway Protection Force on Tuesday, emphasizing that the Meetei community has been grappling with a disrupted lifeline, attributing the situation to aggression by Kuki militants.
