Imphal, Nov 18: The United NGO Mission Manipur (UNM-M) has pleaded the concern CSOs imposing economic blockade on the National High Ways to relax the blockade in view of the hardship face by common people. In a press statement issued by U. Nobokishore, Secretary UNM-M, it is stated that since 31st October 2016, the Bandh was started on the NH 2 in connection with the creation of both Sadar Hills and Jiribam District. Now, the economic blockade on the NH has been continuing for the last 18 days which led to stopping of schools buses and vans, public transports. Due to shortage of fuel people are not able to use their vehicles to go for their work. The essential commodities are in scarcity and the prices are beyond the capacity of the general people to purchase. The suffering of general populace in both Hills and Plain of Manipur reaches its zenith because of the price hike on all essential items and lack /scarcity of cash at this juncture. The truck drivers and second driver are in extremely difficult situation. Their lives are not secure on the High Way.
The UNM-M requested for urgent attention of Concerned apex bodies /CSOs to relax economic blockade for a few days on humanitarian ground to relieve the suffering of general public of Manipur. UNM-M also earnestly request all other concerned CSOs /apex bodies for dialogue and public discussion in place of General strike, Bandh and highway blockade as such add untold suffering to lower income group of any society.
“UNM-M is apprehensive of unprecedented social conflicts and disturbances if people continue to suffer owing to frustration and confusion. We all know that public anger is growing and coming to zero tolerance” the statement added.
UNM-M also urged the leaders in both Assembly and Apex bodies to kindly consider for urgent solution because it may not be possible to control uproar and violence of general populace once erupted anywhere in Manipur.
