It began when Naga groups in Manipur enforced an indefinite economic blockade on the 11th of April to protest against the state government's decision to hold autonomous council elections.

The Manipur government has banned Muivah's visit saying it would incite communal tension in the state. As the deadlock continues, so does the blockade of the crucial highway.
