Shillong, Sat, 05 Jun 2010 ANI

Shillong (Meghalaya)/ Kolkata, June 5 (ANI): Union Home Secretary G K Pillai has appealed to both Nagaland and Manipur Government to speak to various student organizations and ensure that they call off the economic blockade.


Calling the blockade as 'illegal', Pillai said the illegal activity needs to be stopped at the earliest.


"Blockade has been done by various student organizations and others. I think they have to call it off. I think the blockade is totally illegal. I think the illegal activity has to stop," said Pillai.


"We have made an appeal to the chief minister of Manipur as well as the Chief Minister of Nagaland to talk with these people and to ensure that the blockade is removed at the earliest because we cannot allow blockade to continue," he added.


Thousands of two-wheelers, cars, trucks and buses have been queuing up at outlets across Manipur to receive their 'share' of fuel.


Due to this, roads in Imphal have been perpetually clogged since the last few days.


Meanwhile, Indian football icon Baichung Bhutia, urged for peace in both Manipur and Nagaland


"I hope there is peace in Manipur and Nagaland because at the end of the day it's the common people who are suffering and I hope peace prevails and the people are not into trouble," said Bhutia. (ANI)
