Delhi greets Ibobi with protest

The Churachand protest is spreading to New Delhi with hundreds of people from Manipur lodging the night long protest at the Manipur Bhawan premises on Sunday.

Hundreds of tribal people from the restive north eastern state thronged the Manipur Bhawan premises at 5 in the evening as soon as Chief Minister Okram Ibobi Singh arrived in it forcing him to remain inside the room for the night.

With banners and festooned in their hands, the protestors shouted slogans raising their demands for separate administration for the hills people, withdrawal of the controversial bills apart from action against the police personal who killed nine protestors during the recent orgy of violence in Churachandpur.
