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.
