Imphal, June 30 2010: "I present before you the report of the Ministry of Home Affairs for the month of June, 2010 .

The month of June witnessed serious disturbances in Manipur and Jammu & Kashmir.

So far as Manipur is concerned, Naga groups imposed a blockade on NH-39 with effect from April 24, 2010 protesting the holding of elections to the Autonomous District Councils (ADCs) in Manipur.

On May 5, 2010, there was a stand-off between NSCN (IM) and the Government of Manipur on the issue of Shri Muivah's visit to his ancestral village, Somdal.

The issue could not be resolved, and this added to the hostility between Naga groups and the Government of Manipur.

Eventually, the Central Government persuaded Shri Muivah to leave Vishwema village (near the border of Nagaland and Manipur) where he had been camping since May 5, 2010 .

The Central Government also deployed para-military forces to assist the Government of Manipur to hold elections to the ADCs.

Through patient negotiations with different Naga groups, the blockade of NH-39 was lifted on June 18, 2010 .

Meanwhile, every effort was made to keep NH-53 largely open for traffic, especially the carriage of goods.

Throughout this difficult period, the Central Government was able to ensure that the security forces acted with great restraint and minimum loss of lives (2) " .
