A wake up call: Should we remain calm when our brothers are in frying pan

When some among the people of this state under the initiative of the government of Manipur celebrate for getting ILP that exempt CAB from the state of Manipur, our own blood brothers in Assam are dying. So far 6 people including students are reported died in police action while protesting against the contentious CAB that has been passed in both the Lok Sabha and the Rajya Sabha which finally gave assent by the President of India. In Tripura an indigenous person was reported killed in mob action by immigrants supporting the CAB. The situation of the indigenous in both the states of Tripura and Assam is in critical juncture. The one time stand from other states where CAB has been exempted by ILP including Manipur has now seems diverted and the trust for a common platform for all the indigenous people of the region has been breached with the kind of attitude responded.

It is all right for the BJP government to be exited, but it not so when it comes to the so call civil society bodies to remain idled when our brothers and sisters whom we stand together folding hands one another are facing bullets and bomb of the security forces.

This newspaper, even though term the enactment of ILPS under the Bengal Eastern Frontier Regulation 1873 as an ‘interim relief’ as it is a tool that Contentious Citizenship Amendment Bill, 2019 has been exempted. However, this newspaper Imphal Times will spare no pain in joining hands for our brother and sisters of Assam and Tripura.

When Tripura and Assam burnt we as brothers and sisters certainly feel the heat. And if we ignore the immediate heat we will surely feel the heat in the coming days. We the people of Manipur need to wake up and extend our helping hand to our brothers and sister of Assam and Tripura.
