Speaking to the media, KSO Moreh leaders appealed to all to extend cooperation to the KSO Moreh block so as to avoid any unwanted incidents.

Announcing that the KSO Tengnoupal district and KSO Moreh block lend full support to the ongoing agitation and will continue to do so until further developments, leaders of KSO Moreh urged the state government to hold talks with ATSUM leaders and bring an amicable solution.

 
In pursuit of its demand to convene a special state assembly session to table the ‘The Manipur (Hill Areas) Autonomous District Council (ADC) Bill 2021’, the All Tribal Students' Union, Manipur (ATSUM) and its constituent units imposed the economic blockade since Monday.
