“NESO urges the Government of India to take proactive steps to control the situation from further deterioration and also should intervene by taking the initiative to solve the issue and to bring all the parties involved to the negotiating table so that the issue can be resolved amicably,” NESO chairperson Samuel B Jyrwa said on March 29.

He said the students’ organization expresses serious concern over the indefinite shutdown called by the Southern Angami Public Organisation (SAPO) along the National Highway No 2 (Dimapur – Imphal road) which is the lifeline of Manipur and the adjoining areas since March 23.

The Southern Angami Public Organisation has demanded that Manipur government should withdraw its armed personnel from Kezoltsa area.

The NESO chairperson said that the indefinite shutdown has greatly affected the lives and the livelihood of innocent people.

Asserting that dialogue is to be encouraged so that the people on the ground do not suffer, Jyrwa said: “NESO thereby appeals to the Southern Angami Public Organisation (SAPO) to reconsider and lift the ongoing shutdown at the earliest for the interest of the innocent general public, and at the same time, NESO also urged upon the All Assam Manipuri Youth Association (AAMYA) to suspend the counter shutdown for the interest of the general public.”
