In a nationwide rare show of solidarity more than 1 lakh women hit the streets in Manipur with a huge human chain on Saturday demanding immediate withdrawal of the three controversial bills apart from action against the police personnel involved in the killing of 9 agitators in Churachandpur last week.

Organized by JAC’s women wing in Churachandpur along with Joint Philanthropic Organisation, the human chain started from Kangvai to Churachandpur district hospital where they observed one-minute silence for souls of nine tribals killed in the orgy of Chuachandpur violence.Later the speakers pledged to carry out the fight for withdrawal of the controversial bills.

“We are prepared give a brave fight to force the government to keep aside the controversial bills. Otherwise, we will not let anybody to impose any suppressive bills on us,” said Siamchinthang Tangpua one of the organizers.
