224

IMPHAL, December 23: Reacting to the Chief Minister’s recent statement that the government is all set to construct another Tribal market at Chingmeirong area, the Chingmeirong Apunba Nupi Lup this morning organized a sit in protest at Khongnang Ani Karak, however the Lamphel police arrived shortly after the start of the protest and dispersed the womenfolk.

Speaking to media persons at the protest site, convener of the association, Indrani announced that locals of Chingmeirong will never allow the government to construct a tribal market in the area as it is populated by all communities and the building of an exclusive tribal market in the area will divide the communities residing peacefully in the area.

She further added that the government should not take up such acts which could harm the peaceful co-existence of the diverse communities in the area and the tribal market project should be scrapped.
