The Naga rebels have been continuing a blockage of the national highway to Manipur for over 45 days. This is causing acute shortage of petrol, diesel and essential commodities and causing enormous hardship to the people of the Manipur – it is really an emergency like situation. This blockage is illegal, the central government has said so. The central government should use all means necessary, including force to remove the blockage and ensure the return of normalcy and rule of law.
