Chief of Army Staff General Dalbir Singh arrived in Manipur capital Imphal on Saturday to review the security situation in the wake of a blockade imposed by the United Naga Council (UNC). General Singh will also visit Assam to review the security situation there.
Meanwhile, a curfew from Lamlong Bridge to Pangei area has been relaxed from 6 am to 5 pm. Union Minister of State for Home Affairs Kiren Rijiju had on Friday visited Manipur to take stock of the situation and asked the state government to step up its efforts in restoring normalcy.
Home Minister Rajnath Singh also asked Nagaland Chief Minister T R Zeliang to ensure there is no disturbance in the movement of vehicles passing through his state, as there have been reports of the Naga Students Federation calling for a blockade of vehicles in Nagaland.
