Imphal, June 09 2010: The fast unto death stir of two leaders of the MPP demanding opening of two national highways blocked owing to the indefinite economic blockade has entered third day today.

In the meantime, the party has submitted a memorandum to the Prime Minister to address the hardship facing by the people by opening the highways and ensure safe passage of goods freight trucks on the highways.

Health conditions of the two leaders, party president Dr Nimaichand Luwang and former Speaker of Manipur Assembly, Sapam Dhananjoy have been badly deteriorated.

Doctors who examined them today recommended medical check up for every six hours.

The health conditions of the two leaders were checked by Dr Jodhachandra.

After the medical check up, the doctor observed that the health condition of Nimaichand is worsening.

Later, speaking to a press conference, MPP general secretary (organisation) Kh Ibomcha criticized the government for not responding or taking up works to end the economic blockade or ensure availability of essential commodities despite repeated request from the party side.

If the blockade continues further, there would reach a stage the people of the state die of starvation.

Copy of the memorandum were also forwarded to the Union Home Minister, state Governor.
