Manipur blockade by Sadar hill protesters enters its fourth month
Imphal, Oct 30 (ANI): With the economic blockade of Manipur entering its 90th day on Saturday, prices of essential commodities have shot up, affecting one and all.
In spite of the continued effort by the state government to tackle the issue, the supplies of fuel items have remained a major problem.
People are forced to buy petrol in the black market at nearly three times its market price. The blockade has had an adverse impact on people's daily lives.
"While making short trips, if there are no security escorts, the journey becomes very difficult. It has become very difficult to feed our little children because prices are so high. There are many problems," said Man Singh, a visually impaired labourer.
The Sadar Hills District Demand Committee (SHDDC), which started its agitation on August 1, seeks to convert the Kuki-majority Sadar hills area in Naga-majority Senapati district into a full-fledged district.
The United Naga Committee, on the other hand, has opposed the Kukis' demand and began a counter-blockade.
Meanwhile, the state government has set up a District Re-organisation Committee to look into the demands of the protesters who are blocking the national highway.
Manipur has been deprived of essential commodities for the past three months due to the ongoing economic embargo.
Leaders of SHDDC have vowed to continue their agitation for the creation of a separate District(ANI)
