The Wrath of common men

Some few days back two persons responsible for lobbing bomb to the residence of IMC chairperson at Bamol Leikai area were rounded up by locals of the area. They were nearly lynched but timely intervention by the state police force had saved them from the wrath of the locality. Yesterday too similar incident happened at Thangmeiband area in Imphal West. A person who lobbed bomb to the residence of RIMS Medical Superintendent was caught by the local people and thrashed him near to death. He was lucky that a police team save him from the anger of the people.
The two incidents showed how the people of the state now look towards the terror organizations or gangster. It is a fact that people are not happy towards any organizations that committed violent activities which create terror to the common people especially to the women and children.
Interesting, day before yesterday local people of Napet and its surrounding villages invaded a designated camp of a SoO group called URF (Chingkheinganba). The people dare the sophisticated weapon which the cadres used to fire upon the villagers instead picked up any available things to attack them. Finally the cadres had to flee. And these cadres at which people of five/six village had charged of high handedness and terror activism are permitted to openly speak in front of the press to make their clarifications.
Question that needs to be asked is why a group which is being charge of criminal activism is allowed to make a clarification when the law enforcers should investigate and take up a case against them. The law enforcers cannot make excuses in the pretext that no compliant is being made to the police as there is also provision in Indian legal system that in such case police are entitled to take up sue-motto case.
This piece of writing is to remind the present state of mind of Manipuri people. It is an open secret that people are eager to live a peaceful life. A friend of mine said, “honestly I support insurgency movements before, but now I hate them because they have become more corrupted then the corrupt administrators”. This kind of statement from a person naturally showed that people no longer stand with those who are taking up arms to wage war against the government.
But what actually is the government deciding to this development. The whole world knows the strength of Manipur Police Commandos, the number of so called Para Military Forces and Army being deployed in the pretext of suppressing the armed struggle.
Imphal is a place where the maximum numbers of such police personnel were deployed. The Police now are known for their skill in hunting the presence of underground at any place. But then why they lack intelligence input of any such bomb attack to houses of individuals. And why these police are often late in reaching the spot where a criminal is committing a crime.
One thing need to be reminded is that the same anger poured towards the criminal could also be turn towards the so called law enforcers. Peoples’ anger has now cross beyond tolerance and if police are no use then the anger could have been poured to them. Police should be smart enough and act before people were forced to take the law into their own hands.
