ATSUM begins highway bandh under ROTO


IMPHAL, October 20: The All Tribal Students`™ Union Manipur is all set to start its indefinite bandh on national highways and central projects from this midnight, as the government has failed to comply with the agreement decided upon earlier this year, said president Muan Tombing today.

He said the government was given time till October 20 to fulfill the demands.

Addressing a press meet at its office located at Nagaram, Imphal the ATSUM president stated that the government is not considering the student union`™s genuine demand.

As such ATSUM is compelled to resume its sustained agitation under the code name Reckoning of the Others, ROTO which was started from the early part of October 21, he said.

Elaborating on the nature of the agitation, he said it includes complete shutdown/ closure of all national highways, and central projects undertaken in the State.

He further appealed to all unions and associations to co-operate with the student body in the agitation.

The agitation could have been avoided had the government paid attention to the genuine demands, he continued.

He declared that the government should bear responsibility for any untoward incident occurring during the agitation.
