Imphal, September 24: Parlours in the Naga areas have discarded cassettes/CDs of both video and audio in Meitei language since September 17, according to ANSAM sources.

Disclosing this to Newmai News Network this afternoon, ANSAM information and publicity secretary Sounii Khapa said after the Naga students' body had issued notification to ban the CDs and cassettes in the particular language from September 17, parlours have stopped immediately selling and lending the commodities.

ANSAM termed the ban as very effective in the Naga areas.

With regard to the Meitei Mayek banning by the ANSAM in Naga areas, Sounii Khapa said that as of now ANSAM volunteers have been detaining vehicles having the script in their number plates and elsewhere and then released them after erasing the script vis-a-vis giving warning to the owners/drivers not to come in the Naga areas with the script.

The ANSAM leader announced that more drastic actions will be meted out on the vehicle owners/drivers who defy the Naga students directives.

Sounii Khapa warned to those elements using the banned script/Mayek in any form in the Naga areas would be dealt with iron hands.

He said volunteers belonging to subordinate bodies/constituent units of ANSAM in their respective Naga areas/districts are on the prowl taking up the Meitei Script banning measures.
