Next round of tripartite talk on May 19
SENAPATI, 8th May: The Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA) has invited the Government of Manipur and the United Naga Council (UNC) for the next round of tripartite talk on the district creation issue which is to be held on May 19 at Senapati district headquarters, according to UNC sources. In the last tripartite talk held on March 23 it was agreed that the next round of talk would be held on April 27. However, due to some ‘exigencies’ of the MHA, the talk was deferred. The first round of talk was held on March 19, 2017. It may be mentioned that the UNC had imposed economic blockade on all the national highways which pass through Manipur for 139 days in protest against the previous government's (Ibobi Singh led Government) action of creating new districts.
