Advocates under the banner of High Court Bar Association and All Manipur Bar Association staged protest against the suspension of construction works of the High Court Complex at Chingmeirong which have been taken up as a component of the Capitol Project.

Strongly denouncing the militants disturbances, advocates launched a sit-in protest suspending all court works and the same would continue till August 1. At the protest site, the spokespersons of the two bodies said that if the militants do not withdraw their threats and allow resuming of works, they would be compelled to intensify their course of agitation.
