Imphal, August 21: The spokesman of All Naga Students' Association Manipur, Ngachonmi Chamroy has informed that all the goods that were dragged down from vehicles during the economic blockade by ANSAM supporters are lying intact.

Speaking to The Sangai Express Chamroy said all the owners may collect their goods from ihe respective places where they were confiscated by 6 pm of August 23, failing which the student body will bear no responsibility for any damage or loss of the goods.

Meanwhile, president of ANSAM, Paul Langhu informed The Sangai Express that the State Govt has not yet reciprocated to the gesture shown by ANSAM and warned that the student body may be constrained to re-impose the economic blockade.

Towards this end ANSAM has asked all its volunteers to remain alert as it is all set to announce the re-imposition of its indefinite non-cooperation movement against the State Government anytime now.

The deadline of August 23 set for the goods owners to claim their possession is indicative that the non co-operation movement may be re-imposed anytime after August 23.According to another source, ANSAM refused to the proposal to hold a talk with a Ministerial team on August 18 at Senapati as no solution can be worked out without the Chief Minister.

The student body suspended its economic blockade on August 11 following intimations from the Prime Minister and the Union Home Minister to a delegate of the Naga Hoho.

Apart from the intimations from the Centre, the decision of the student body to call off the blockade was taken in the backdrop of the immense hardships faced by the common people.

ANSAM had launched the agitation to protest the declaration of June 18 as State Integrity and State holiday.

The student body had demanded that the Chief Minister roll back the decision before any talk is held.

A condition was also set by the student body that any talk with the Government should be held outside Imphal at any of the four hill districts of Chandel, Senapati, Tamenglong and Ukhrul.
