Pangal Political forum decries ignorance of Pangal women’s participation to Nupilal

In commemoration to the upcoming Nupilal day, Women Society of Pangal Political Forum (PPF ) today observed 76th Nupilal Memorial Celebration, 2015 and paid tributes to the Pangal Women martyrs who had joined the Nupilal but ignored by the government at Manipur Press Club, Majorkhul, Imphal.
The observance function was attended by P Bimola Devi, Adhakshya IE Z.P, Nazima Begum, President of Women Society (PPF), Sitara Begum, Chief Advisor of Women Society (PPF), MI Khan, VP of MPTCC and Spokesperson of PPF, AH Khan, Retd. C/E President of PPF, Sheikh Kheiruddin Shah, Retd. PPSMT Assembly, AR Khan, IAS and Retd. Chief Advisor and Alhaj Islao Rahman as dignitaries.
Speaking at the function, MI Khan, VP of MPTCC and Spokesperson of PPF said that the historic women’s war which is known as Nupilal is the most important movements in the history of Manipuri women. During the movement, women folks of Meitei Pangal also took part but the government has forgotten their names which is a very unfortunate for the minority Pangal communities, he added.

MI Khan further said that more than 30 women folks of Meitei Pangal which took part in the 1939 agitation against the oppressive economic and administrative policies ruled by the Manipuri Maharaja and the Political Agent Mr. Gimson of the British Government have been left behind. Their names have not been mentioned by the State Government so far while organizing the Nupilal celebration every year on December 12.
Drawing the attention of the Government, MI Khan appealed to look into the history of Nupilal so that the left out names of the Meitei Pangal women could be included in each year while observing the function.
