Various women organisations of the state including Keithel ladies today staged protests in various areas amid curfew imposed by the government of Manipur.
The district administrations of all affected regions of the state earlier yesterday relaxed the curfew from 5 am to 6 pm however, late in the evening, the district administrations of Imphal West and Imphal East and all Kuki inhabited areas were reimposed.

Following the decision of the government, the Commissioner of Home Department, T. Ranjit Singh issued an order to all district magistrates not to relax the curfew today (July 19).

However, women organisations and Keithel ladies staged protest demonstrations in various areas in all the valley districts defying the curfew. Manipur Police in the presence of district magistrates tried to disperse the gathering appealing the protestors to remain indoors.
