Imphal: Newspapers today failed to hit
the stands as the All Manipur Working Journalists Union
decided not to bring out the publications in the wake of
pressures by militant outfits, official reports said.

As one militant organisation, Kangleipak Communist
Party - Military Council (KCP-MC) wanted certain statement to
be published, it was objected to by their rival, the reports
said.

In the course of the tussle between two factions, the
AMWJU decided not to publish the papers today.

A spokesman of the AMWJU appealed to the militant
outfits not to put pressure on newspapers regarding the issue
of publishing statements.
