Media houses in Manipur have once again come under pressure from the militants as the banned People Revolutionary Party of Kangleipak (PREPAK) threatened them of dire consequence if they do not publish the names and details of the persons it provided. The outfit also on Thursday issued “last warning” to chief minister O Ibobi Singh to check “state terrorism”. Taking serious note of the repeated threats received from the militants, scribes on Friday afternoon held a meeting at Manipur Press Club, Imphal. However, no decision was taken on the matter as the meeting was in progress at the time of filing this report. On Thursday, PREPAK in a statement warned the chief minister and provided a list of 143 persons said to be his close associates, including MLAs, and workers, which they threatened to hit if the chief minister failed to check “state terrorism”. On receipt of the statement, an emergency meeting of editors of the local dailies on Thursday night resolved not to publish the list of the persons provided by the outfit but decided to carry the statement by deleting certain words which could have caused panic among the persons targeted.
