In response to the call of the Ireibaki Thoudangda Ngamkhei Kanba Nupi Lup, women folk (meira paibis) from different localities came out on into the streets bearing torch and chanted slogans like “Remove faulty border fencing immediately”, “Anti people Government should resign” and “Long live Manipur”.
Similar rallies were taken out at Lamsang, Wabagai, Heingang, Khurai Leirikyengbam Leikai, Thambalkhong, Lamlong, Kakwa, Chingamakha, Mantripukhri, Khabam etc.
