Locals defy curfew, step out to block Imphal-Ukhrul road, burn two vehicles
Imphal, Manipur, Dec 20 (ANI): At least two vehicles were torched as people blocked the Imphal-Ukhrul road protesting against the Naga economic blockade on Monday. The curfew which was imposed on Sunday afternoon and covers Porompat and Sawombung subdivisions of Imphal East district, said an order was issued by the District Magistrate. The blockade was imposed following the state government’s announcement of formation of seven new districts, four of which have been formally inaugurated. The United Naga Council claims that the creation of new districts in the Naga dominated areas will divide the traditional land holdings of the Naga tribes.
