Newspapers hit stands after eight days in Manipur
Imphal: Newspapers on Monday hit the stands in Manipur after eight days following a decision to distribute dailies by the All Manipur Newspaper Sales and Distributors Association (AMNSDA).
The decision was taken in the interest of the general public, a press release of AMNSDA said.
Distribution of papers was stopped from September one due to a threat to newspaper distributors by some "unwanted elements" for not publishing their press statements, a spokesman of the All Manipur Working Journalists` Union said.
Police and other forces have been deployed in all offices of the dailies to prevent interference in their functioning, official sources said.
