IMPHAL, May 27: The United Committee Manipur has called a 13 hrs general strike in Manipur starting from 5am of May 28.
Informing this to medias in Imphal, a spokesperson of the UCM said the strike has been called to boycott the visit of Nagaland CM Neiphiue Rio, who is planning to visit Senapati district . The UCM spokesperson said the proposed visit of the Nagaland Chief Minister is a part of the agenda to disintegrate Manipur.
The UCM spokesperson also said both the state and central government should discuss the issue to avoid occurance of communal flare ups in Manipur.
IT IS HARD TO UNDERSTAND…WE ARE AGAINST THE VISIT OF NAGALAND CM…. WHAT IS THE POINT IN CALLING A GENERAL STRIKE IN MANIPUR… IT IS AFFECTING OUR OWN PEOPLE….. BANDH, STRIKE, BOYCOTT… ARE ALL RUBBISH…. CONCERNED DEPARTMENTS OR GROUP OF PEOPLE SHOULD COME UP AND TALK TO EACH OTHER….. WAGE EARNERS AND DAILY WORKERS SHOULD NOT BE AFFECTED…..
