12-hr ‘shutter down’ in Mon town peaceful

The 12-hour ‘shutter down’ on Friday in Mon town, called by Mon civil society groups under the aegis of Konyak Union Mon Unit, passed off peacefully.
All shops remained closed and public transport was off the roads.
A joint meeting of Konyak Union Mon unit, civil society groups and business owners were held during which several resolutions were adopted.
Informing this in a press note, KU Mon unit president Kaiyan Toalem and general secretary Nokhreih Ünok SN said that the house resolved no demands will be made from any business establishments or commercial vehicle by any individual, groups or societies, with effect from September 9.
Anyone violating the directive will be dealt with strictly by the Mon Block civil societies and the case would be referred to the competent authority for necessary action.
The shutter down was called in protest against rampant extortion demands, donations and harassments faced by businessmen.
