Countering the bandh imposed by the All Tribal Students’ Union Manipur (ATSUM), Meeitei Leepun, a civil society organisation, on Thursday locked the head office of ATSUM located at Adimjati, Chingmeirong in Imphal.
According to a video clip sent to media, ‘Thoupu’ (executive member) of Meeitei Leepun, Chinglemba Wahengbam, said frequent bandhs and blockades along the National Highways will be considered as ATSUM is targeting the people living in the valley.
To avoid and condemn the frequent bandhs and blockades along the national highways, Meetei Leepun is locking down the head office of ATSUM as a protest, he added.
He stated that ATSUM cannot misuse the people living in the valley in order to fulfil their demands, which is between them and the government.
Chinglemba cautioned that ATSUM cannot break the lock which Meetei Leepun put at their head office. If they want to open the lock, then ATSUM should reach Meetei Leepun and after approval, they can open the lock, he added.
If ATSUM fails to follow the warning of Meetei Leepun then the opening of their head office at valley will be banned, he asserted.
