Manipur logs out of internet

Rumours have always been the billows that fan conflagration in the restive Churachandpur district. That has forced the authorities to smartly block the mobile messaging and internet services.

As a result, the entire north eastern state remains disconnected from the rest of the virtual world much to a major inconvenience of the common people. 

On the other hand, a section of protesters have not allowed restoration of surface communication by feeling trees on the road.

The violence erupted on Monday after a section of hills people set ablaze seven ancestral houses of ministers and MLAs at Churachandpur hours after the assembly ensured the passage of three crucial bills paving the way for the introduction of ILP. The hills people have been dead opposed ILP in the state.
