The KSU protest comes in the wake of the death of a resident of Block II in Ri Bhoi district of the state following an altercation at the inter-state border.
Speaking to Northeast Live KSU leader Lambor Malniang said the government has done enough of talking and it was time for some real action on the ground.
It also warned that the government’s failure to act will force the union to take things into its own hands.
