After careful consideration, the indefinite shutdown declared by the Indigenous Tribal Leaders’ Forum (ITLF) at Churachandpur in protest against the abduction of 7 Kuki-Zo including 2 minors will be concluded by 6 pm today October 3, 2023.
However, ITLF will continue to monitor the situation and will issue a public notice if intense agitation is required.
In regards to the ITLF Women Wing weekly dharna, considering the continuous two-day shutdown, the dharna will be cancelled tomorrow (i.e. 4th October 2023) and will be resumed as usual from next week.
