IMPHAL July 24: Manipur Mountaineering Training Association organised a rafting rally in two rafts down the Imphal River from Maharabi near Sekmai to Khurai Lamlong Thong demanding ILPS implementation in the State.
They were greeted by thousands of people who watch them from the river banks and shouted slogans supporting the ILPS demand.
Late Sapam Robinson`™s parents also greeted the team and showed support to the endeavour of the MMTA at the river bank.
The team also stopped for a brief moment to visit their home and pay homage to the departed student.
They proceeded further down the river towards passing under Salamthong the Lamlong Bridge and stopped to greet people on the river banks along their course.
They waited for more than an hour without flinching and join the chorus of shouting the ILP slogans.
It was indeed an overwhelming support and solidarity unmatched to any form of demonstration in the ILPS movement so far and appealed to the crowds.
Bridges were loaded with people nearing stampede.
And from each bridge they gathered more supporters to the next bridge.

The sit in protest was jointly organised by Khergao Awang Leikai, Khargao Association Women Development, Young Vision Association Khergao Sabal Leikai, Nasikhong Youth Union, Sabal Leikai Youth Development Association.
