The resumption of normal classes for all schools in the violent-hit Manipur deferred till July 1 or until further notice.

The ban imposed on internet services has also been extended for another five days, till June 25.

Earlier, the Directorate of Education (Schools) of Manipur government, in an order, had announced resumption of normal classes in all the schools across the state from June 21 (Wednesday). However, an order of the same directorate issued today stated the resumption of normal classes for all schools in the state is deferred till July 1 or until further order.

Meanwhile, the ban imposed on the internet/data services within the territorial jurisdiction of Manipur has been extended for another five more days, that is, till June 25.

An order of the Home department extending the ban period stated that it was to prevent further disturbances of peace and public order in view of the persisting unrest in the state.

The order stated as per a report from the Director General of Police (DGP), Manipur there are still reports of incidents like arson of houses and premises.

There is apprehension that some anti-social elements might use social media extensively for transmission of images, hate speeches and hate video messages, inciting the passions of the public which might have serious repercussions on the law and order situation in Manipur, it added.

It is still necessary to take adequate measures to maintain law and order in public interest, by stopping the spread of disinformation and rumours, through various social media platforms such as WhatsApp, Facebook, Instagram, Twitter etc. on mobile phones etc. and sending bulk SMS, the order added.
