|Editors’ Guild announces boycott of Ibobi|
IMPHAL, Feb 21 – The Editors’ Guild Manipur (EGM) has announced a boycott of Manipur Chief Minister, his Council of Ministers and all ruling MLAs.
“The boycott decision has been taken following the passing of the deadline of February 20 set by EGM which had patiently waited for the CM to fulfil his assurances on a charter of demands of the EGM”, said a statement.
The EGM also demanded removal of Th Syamo, APO (Press), DIPR for verbally assaulting and physically threatening President of EGM A Mobi when he visited Syamo’s office along with the EGM Secretary General Yumnam Rupachandra. As no action was initiated the EGM has been boycotting the DIPR to send a message to the government, it added. However, despite three months having passed and having had several rounds of talks with the CM, he is yet to take any tangible action. – Correspondent
