The apex students body in the state Naga Students` Federation (NSF) has called for a 12-hour dawn to dusk bandh in all the Naga inhabited areas spreading over four states and Myanmar on Monday.
Manipur, which has barely emerged from a two-month long twin highway blockade, is bracing to meet another 48-hour ``bandh`` call on National Highway 53 from midnight of July 9 called by a Naga students` organisation.
The indefinite economic blockade of
lifeline routes NH 39 (Imphal-Dimapur) and 53 (Imphal-Silchar)
in Manipur by agitating Naga groups entered the 55th day on Sunday.
A group of youths pelted stones at four trucks, which were part of a convoy of security forces coming from Manipur, as the indefinite economic blockade continued at Mao by a Naga students` body.
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.
