Imphal, July 07: The Okram Ibobi Singh Ministry has warmly welcomed the response of the agitating All Naga Students Association, Manipur (ANSAM) to hold a dialogue with the Government but fixing the meeting venue at Senapati by the student body has raised eyebrows in the Ministry.

�I really appreciate such a good response from ANSAM brothers but I cannot go to Senapati for the meeting as fixed by them.

I�m ready to talk with them any time at Imphal� Chief Minister O Ibobi said while getting on his car after the morning session of the ongoing Assembly today.

�This is a good gesture from ANSAM and we really appreciate their good response towards our invitation� Art and Culture Minister Pheiroijam Parijat said adding that the Government on Wednesday immediately responded its unwillingness to move to Senapati but to meet at Imphal anytime�.

The reply from the student body is awaited, he added.
