Indefinite economic blockade from midnight tonight in Manipur

Two student organisations in Manipur today threatened to launch an indefinite economic blockade of the Imphal-Moreh NH 2 in support of their demand that 7,000 students from hill districts be allowed to appear for the Class X exam.

The Naga Students Union, Chandel district, and Kuki Students' organisation said in a joint statement that more than 7,000 students had not been allowed to write the examination conducted by the Board of Secondary Education Manipur in the past two years or so.

They alleged that the BSEM had collected enrolement fees, but failed to issue admit cards on earlier occasions. Sources in the secondary board revealed that cases

were reported that candidates, particularly from interior hill districts, who had studied at various educational institutions in valley districts wanted to write their examinations at the hill districts, but this went against the rules. The demand of the student organisations has been forwarded to the higher authorities, the sources said.
