Imphal, Nov 24 (UNI) The Joint Action Committee (JAC) against the Ragailong bomb blast has called a 24 hour general strike tomorrow to protest the failure of the government to take actions against the perpetrators.

'' The government has failed to take action even though 17 people died and 20 injured seriously in the blast on October 21 '' JAC sources said.

JAC has decided to call the strike to urge the government for pursuing the matter in the right earnest as none involved in the incident could be arrested so far though the Kangleipak Communist Party (KCP) had claimed responsibility for the blast, sources added.

Meanwhile, Chief Minister O Ibobi Singh has assured that the government will provide all necessary assistance to the next of kins of all those killed and injured in the blast.

Enquiry was going on, police said adding Assam Rifles and the elite police commandos are stationed in large numbers near the blast site.
