Manipur Transporters and Drivers Council (TDC) staged a sit-in-protest here Tuesday under the aegis of COCOMI demanding the disclosure of the Naga peace talk agreement and threatened that they will cease work across the state if the talks outcome goes against the interest of the state and the people.
The state transporters and drivers held the protest at the community hall of Keishampat Leimajam Leikai, Imphal West.
TDC vice president Kh Ibotombi said to the media that if the outcome of the agreement turns out to be against the interest of the state, then transporters will cease their services simultaneously in the entire state. The central government and the state government must be aware that the Naga peace talks must not affect the interest of Manipur, he said.
COCOMI assistant co-convenor Jeetendra Ningombam, speaking to the media, said series of agitations are in the pipeline to mount pressure on the Centre to disclose the content of the agreement which was reported to have been discussed on October 31.
Ningombam said the ultimatum of COCOMI has met the dateline, therefore, it needs to initiate various forms of agitation in connection with the issue of the ‘Framework Agreement’ until the content is known to the public.
