Blockades suicidal : Gaikhangam [The Sangai Express]

IMPHAL, Oct 22: The on-going protracted highway blockade and counter bloc-kade for and against Sadar Hills district would be suicidal for all communities of Manipur, stated MPCC president Gaikhangam.
speaking at a political workers’ convention at Me-kola public ground organised by Naoriya Pa-khanglakpa Block Mahila Congress Committee, he said the term ‘indefinite’ attached to any form of agita- tion has become allergic to the public.

Stating that it was not right to make the people suffer for a prolonged period in pursuit of certain de- mands, Gaikhangam invited all to come to the negotiating table so that amicable solutions can be explored jointly.

Other speakers who addressed the gathering said many people who are not genuine Congress workers have joined the race for the party tickets. These efforts of non-Congress men aimed at securing party tickets will prove futile, they asserted.

The convention resolv-ed to ensure landslide victo- ry for Congress party in the forthcoming elections.
