SENAPATI, June 14 - Even as the economic blockade is under way in �tribal areas�, the United Naga Council (UNC) has announced today to impose a 24-hour �total shutdown in Naga areas� of Manipur from the intervening night of June 17 and 18.

The UNC took this decision in a meeting today to show its resentment against the �continuous suppression, subjugation and discrimination� by the Government of Manipur agai-nst Naga tribals. The shutdown is also to demand early conclusion of the �Framework Agreement� signed between the Government of India and the NSCN-IM.
