The present imbroglio pertaining to the 3 unpopular Bills passed fetter hobble by the Manipur Legislative Assembly in August, 2015 was undoubtedly conceived for the protection and prosperity of Manipur and it’s people. However, it turns into a bond of contention among groups of its people simply due to miscarriages in its passing and subsequent mishandling of its repercussions.
The Governor could have assented it, had it not been protested by groups of people from within the state itself. Now, the fate of these bills rests upon the people of Manipur whether we need the bills seeing a new light with certain amendments or allow it to remain contentious. In my humble opinion, In order to give a fresh breathe to the 3 bills, people of Manipur must bring a change of hands (new hands) to deal with it and In fact, in all probability, a government without these present MLAs who tried to enact a very good law by be-fooling it’s people and passed it by coercion has no moral right (anymore) to continue to govern the state and it’s people.
The emotional and geographical integrity of Manipur is put under threat by the present govt’s inept handling of the 3 bills issues right from its conception up-till it’s submission to the Governor rather dangerously than the several non govt. actors purportedly yearning to slice it. The Dy.CM claimed to have met all ex-CMs including Rishang Keishing. Out of this contention a question automatically emerges as to what group of people these ex-CMs represent. Will they help in bringing a solution in case if there’s any untoward eventuality as it is now. Have they not ever consulted valley based CSOs like UCM, AMUCO, HERRICONS etc etc. And also, Have they not ever equally consulted hill based CSOs like KIM, UNC, ZC atleast on the eve of tabling it in the House? I know the govt had a good consultation of Legal experts from within and without the govt. But, they forgot to consult the more undeniable important several CSOs of both the hill and valley. As such the stumbling block in all respects emanates from the masses whose immediate window for ventilating their angers is their respective CSOs.
Therefore, I would like to now place it before the people of Manipur that this Govt under the leadership of Mr. O.Ibobi Singh has completely lost its credibility. So long as his leadership persists, there can’t be a suitable venue created wherein all the concerned stakeholders feel free to come out to meet, to sit and to mingle with for finding an amicable solution first for according a hon’ble funeral to the 9 martyrs. Secondly, the core issue with the incumbent Leadership declaring an Assurance by laying his hands on the corpses that justice will be accorded to all concerned stakeholders or vice-versa.
