A report from Imphal said that the All Manipur Students' Union (AMSU) had set Monday as the deadline for political parties contesting the Assembly elections to announce their stance on the demand for disclosure of the contents of the framework agreement signed between the Centre and the NSCN (Isak-Muivah). Manipur will go to polls on March 4 and March 8. The AMSU, an influential student organisation in the state, had been agitating in support of the demand for making public the framework agreement signed in New Delhi on August 3, 2015. "All the parties should announce their stand on the demand for announcing all details of the agreement by Monday. If they fail to do so, they will face public ire," an AMSU spokesperson Wangkheimay-um Rimakant, said. As part of the campaign, students under the banner of AMSU formed human chains in and around Imphal - along the major thoroughfares at Canchipur and Imphal-Kanchup road in Imphal West and Lamlong market in Imphal East. Women vendors also took part in a demonstration. After the human chain, the students and women vendors took out a march, shouting slogans like "Long live Manipur", "Make public framework agreement" and "No break up of Manipur". The union had launched its movement, Campaign for Protection of Historical and Political Identity of Manipur.
