Scribes in Manipur Monday resumed normal duty after two day cease work strike following the withdrawal of threats on the scribes by a faction of the KCP. Scribes under the banner of the All Manipur Working Journalists’ Union (AMWJU) were on two day cease work strike on Friday and Saturday in protest against threat on the life of the Union’s spokesperson, A Mobi Singh who is also the editor of local vernacular, Sanaleibak.
The KCP Lanheiba group had threatened the spokesperson alleging him to be behind the decision of the AMWJU where the scribes denied clarifying that the body took the decision under its local code of conduct regarding the publication of statements issued by the underground outfits.
Scribes also demanded apology from the faction apart from withdrawing the threat on the life of the spokesperson.
AMWJU took the threat on its spokesperson as threat to all the scribes and resolved to cease work against the act of the faction. They staged a sit-in protest for the last two day at Keishampat, Imphal.
Meanwhile, an apology letter was received by the AMWJU from the faction following which a general body meeting of the AMWJU was convened late Sunday evening. The meeting deliberated on the latest development and agreed to withdraw the cease work immediately and resume to duty Monday.
