 Prohibitory orders were imposed on Saturday in some areas in Moreh sub-division after unrest over the alleged shifting of an India-Myanmar border pillar well into the Indian territory.
Tengnoupal District Magistrate A Tombikanta ordered imposition of prohibitory orders under Section 144 of CrPC during the night hours for the next six months in some parts of the sub-division. The orders prohibit assembly of five or more people from 7 pm to 4 am and carrying any weapon. It was imposed after rising tension in the area over “shifting” of border pillar No 81 three kilometres inside the Indian territory, officials said.
The move comes a day after a visit by the Manipur Revenue Minister Karam Shyam to the area where he said a high power committee on border pillars would submit a detailed report to the government on the contested pillar. The border pillar was erected in 1969-70, the minister had said.
Imphal Correspondent adds: Manipur chief minister N Biren Singh Saturday said the alleged re-location of border pillars at the Manipur sector of Indo-Myanmar border was sensitive issue and no decision can be taken hastily by the state government.
Singh said that the issue should be sorted out by discussing it at a proper forum as it was a matter involving two countries. 
Singh, however, reiterated his government would not allow losing a needle-prick’s land of Manipur because of border demarcation. “No Manipuri would want to lose any piece of land but no decision can be taken hastily by the state government as it is a very sensitive issue,” Singh said.
“There is nothing to panic as the state government is committed to facilitate solving the problem amicably,” the chief minister added. The statement of the chief minister was amidst the outcries over the re-location of border pillar no. 81 near Manipur Kwatha Khunou at a place allegedly around 3km towards Indian territory.
