By Sobhapati Samom

IMPHAL, Jan 29 � The Kuki State Demand Committee (KSDC) sponsored �public blockade� on National and State Highways passing through Kuki-inhabited areas in Manipur has been suspended temporarily following an understanding with the State Government on Monday.

Demanding a separate Kuki State and immediate dialogue with the Kuki militant groups, the KSDC imposed the public blockade from January 24 as part of Quit Kukiland movement in the Kuki areas. KSDC had also boycotted the Republic Day celebration.

An executive committee meeting of KSDC following the talks with the government decided to suspend the agitation from 7.30 pm today, said KSDC information secretary George Guite on phone from Churachandpur district headquarter.

KSDC chairman H Haokip led a three member team at the meeting with the Chief Minister O Ibobi Singh in Imphal today morning.

KSDC appreciated the initiatives of the government to resolve the ongoing situation in the State within a short time, he added.

Following the blockade on the highways, Manipur faced an artificial scarcity of fuel particularly petrol and diesel.

All forms of vehicular movement excluding private vehicles on Imphal-Mao sector of the National Highway 2 had remained suspended till date. Further, Imphalites had to buy petrol at Rs 90 per litre in black market following the fuel crisis.
