No newspapers circulated Monday in Manipur as Imphal based media houses were caught in between two groups of militants on the question of publications of statements issued by them. Media houses said that the publication was suspended owing to the sudden imposition of threats from the two factions of Kangleipak Communists Party (Military Council). Lanheiba, the leader of one faction asked the media houses not to publish a statement signed by one Chinglen, his rival faction. The threats to the media houses in Imphal came up last night when editors of the Imphal based media houses were considering publication of the statement released by the other faction of the group after slide modification. The All Manipur Working Journalists’ Union (AMWJU) convened an emergency general meeting at Manipur Press Club, Imphal Monday and decided not to publish any of the statement of both the groups. The meeting also resolved to suspend publication of newspapers tonight for tomorrow’s circulations (June 15).
