Six student groups raise black flags at Samu Makhong
Six student groups raised black flag at Keithel Lairembi Sana Khongnang, Samu Makhong as a part of the protest against the Citizenship (Amendment) Bill, 2016 today.
Police intervened and blocked the students below over bridge by firing mock bombs, who were taking part in a rally from AMSU office. Later the students continued the rally towards Sagolband road, Uripok and proceed towards the AMSU office.
Two students got injured during the confrontation with the police and were taken to RIMS hospital.
Addressing media person, president of AMSU Manjit Sarangthem said that the NE region may be compelled to dream for a separate nation if the CAB is passed in Rajya Sabha.
While informing that the student group will continue different forms of protest, Manjit also appealed the student community in the state to surrender Hindi text books to the chief minister and the governor on the 13th of this month.
He said “even if we have to sacrifice our life, we will continue to take up different forms of protest and agitation”.
There is no point of a state government if CAB is passed in the Rajya Sabha. The state government should pressure the Centre against CAB and stand with the people of Manipur, he added.
