Imphal: People in Manipur are bearing the
brunt of Naga students` protests as petrol is being sold at Rs
150 per litre while cooking gas at Rs 720 per cylinder
following non-availability of essential items in the state due
to blockade at NH 39, official sources said Sunday.

"Since no petrol or cooking gas can be brought, petrol
is being sold at Rs 150 per litre while cooking gas at Rs
720," sources said, adding that every effort was being
made to check these prices.

All Naga Students` Association Manipur (ANSAM) has been
blocking the National Highway 39 for more than three weeks to
protest against the state government`s proposal to hold
elections to autonomous district councils, the sources said.

"ANSAM has been blocking the highways and as a result
no essential item is brought into Manipur during the period,"
they said.
