CoTU’s Spokesperson, Kaiminlen Sitlhou while addressing the media said that the “total shutdown and the rally was organized to show resentment against the resolution of the Manipur State Assembly to abrogate the SoO agreement with Kuki-Zo.” He further added that the Manipur Legislative Assembly should focus on the present law and order situation in Imphal rather than focusing on the SoO. “AFSPA is needed in the valley districts as much as SoO is needed in the hills”, he asserted.

The rally culminated peacefully with Kangpokpi police vigilant efforts to avert violent incidents.
