Who should be disqualified?

When the Ethics Committee of the Manipur Legislative Assembly is investigating the unnatural behavior of the 10 MLAs elected from the Kuki Dominated areas for breaching their oath to protect the integrity of Manipur, a Kuki-Zo body has requested the disqualification of the MLAs and MPs who took an oath to protect Manipur’s territorial integrity at Imphal’s Kangla Fort on January 24.
The disqualification plea was sent in a memorandum to Union Home Minister Amit Shah from the Zo United, the coordinating committee of civil society organizations of the Kuki-Zo people in Manipur. These organizations include the Kuki Inpi Manipur, Zomi Council, ITLF, COTU, and the HTC.
Whether it is rational to demand the disqualification of elected representatives who took an oath to protect the integrity of the state, or if it is justified to protect the elected MLAs who orchestrate the distortion of the state, is left to the wisdom of the right-thinking Indian citizen and its government. However, the motive of the so-called Zo people is crystal clear: their ultimate goal is to distort Manipur and later India.
If the Kuki-Zo people did not want to destroy the integrity of India, they should not have opposed the Union Home Minister’s initiative to fence the Indo-Myanmar border and scrap the FMR. The Kuki-Zo people who entered India from the Myanmar side and settled in the state are playing politics to create a ‘Zalengam’ state by taking land from India.
The government wants to fence Manipur’s border with Myanmar to prevent smuggling and terror attacks. On Tuesday, the Centre decided to fence the entire 1,643km India-Myanmar border for reasons of internal security. Why did the so-called Kuki-Zo strongly oppose the government’s initiative for the welfare of the country and the protection of India’s integrity, especially Manipur’s?
These illegal immigrants and those incited by them to target the Meitei community seem to have forgotten that Manipur was merged into the Indian Union on October 15, 1949, after signing a merger agreement between India and Manipur in Shillong on September 21, 1949. It is also worth mentioning that, according to the Archive of India, the political boundary merged into the Indian Union was 8,000 square miles, which is over 22,327 square kilometers.
