"The demand to withdraw Manipuri armed police personnel from Manipur territory is an illogical demand as Manipur police armed personnel and its permanent structures are positioned within the territorial boundary of Manipur".

Condemning the indefinite bandh carried out by the Southern Angami Public Organisation (SAPO) and its allies, the All Assam Manipuri Students Union (AAMSU) on Monday warned to launch series of counter consequences if the bandh is not called off at the earliest.
The AAMSU in release condemned the "diabolic" act of SAPO and called the Nagaland government an unfit and incapable administrative institution which failed to control its citizen from carrying out such anti-social activities causing severe problems to its neighbouring state.
The students Union stated that economic blockade or bandh called by Nagaland state's CSOs on the national highway to Manipur passing through Nagaland and physical harassment frequently faced by Manipuri truck drivers while passing through Nagaland are not new issues.
"The demand to withdraw Manipuri armed police personnel from Manipur territory is an illogical demand as Manipur police armed personnel and its permanent structures are positioned within the territorial boundary of Manipur," it mentioned.
"SAPO and their like-minded other bodies should feel ashamed of interfering in the internal affairs of its neighbouring state," the release added.
The Manipur government is deploying its armed police personnel within its jurisdiction, it said, adding, it is nowhere the duty of SAPO to interfere in other's matter."
The release demanded that the Nagaland government should take immediate action based on democratic norms and humanitarian ground to settle the ongoing chaos and prevent it from happening again in near future.
The All Assam Manipuri Youths' Association had launched indefinite counter bandh along the Assam part of the Assam-Nagaland highway no.39 from Sunday midnight against the extention of bandh along the Nagaland part of the same highway called by the SAPO.
