Bandh hits normal life in Manipur hills

By Correspondent

IMPHAL, July 14 � Normal life in Naga-dominated hill areas in Manipur remained paralysed for the second day today after All Naga Students Association Manipur (ANSAM) called a 72-hour Chakka bandh since July 12 evening. The bandh is scheduled to conclude at 6 pm tomorrow.

The bandh affected normal life in Senapati, Tamenglong, Chandel and Ukhrul districts as commercial vehicles including inter-State buses stayed off the roads.

Traffic along the trouble-hit Imphal-Mao sector of NH 39 and 53 (Imphal-Jiribam sector) was also hit as no vehicles proceeded from either sides.

Main roads and streets in the hill districts wore a deserted look as vehicles including two wheelers were off the roads. No untoward incident has been reported from anywhere so far.

ANSAM called the bandh demanding review of the Manipur (Hill areas) District Council Act, 1971 which was amended in 2008 and revocation of arrest warrant against its president, David Choro and president of United Naga Council Samson Remei.
