Kohima, July 27 (NEPS): The Mizo Zirlai Pawl (MZP), an apex students' body of Mizoram has today requested the Naga Students Federation (NSF) for the withdrawal of ongoing economic blockades imposed on 2 national highways in Manipur by ANSAM.

In a lettered addressed to the NSF, the MZP President C.Lalrokhuma said, "It is our due responsibility to inform you that the people of Manipur are now facing extreme hardship in their daily life which affects not only the politicians, but the common man including innocent women and children, not to mention the students".

Although it had appreciated the solidarity and unity shown by Nagas, the Miroram student body stated the time might have come to end the blockades as the message they wanted had already been sent across the world.

And therefore it was no longer necessary to let innocent people suffer, it pointed out.

Bringing out an example of a blockade once faced by Mizoram from the people of Cachar district, the MZP explained the suffering caused to the public by this kind of blockade was unimaginable and should not be subjected to anyone on humanitarian grounds.
