ANSAM has said that the banning of Meitei Mayek in the Naga areas is in full swing and claimed that so far, more than 30 vehicles which had Meitei Mayek on their number plates were caught and released after warning the drivers.

The script was erased with black paint by the ANSAM volunteers plying on the National Highway 39 in Senapati district today, stated ANSAM information and publicity secretary Souni Khapa.

He disclosed that the campaign to ban the script will intensify in the days to come.

The ANSAM leader warned that using of the script in Naga areas in any form will be totally banned.
