Imphal, Feb 11: To commemorate the day when the State Cabinet resolved to name erstwhile Thangting Sub-Division of Churachandpur district as ‘Kangvai’ by defying all logic and in total subjugation of the democratic voice of the people, a Black Day was observed today at Justice Square, Khousabung DCC Headquarters, Churachandpur district under the auspices of Khousabung Sub-Division Demand Committee (KSDDC).
A statement said  that over 117 village chiefs out of about 125 villages covered by the Sub-Division had appended their signature in favour of Khousabung to be the sub-divisional headquarters of the new sub-division. This collective decision/choice of the people, from all walks of life and representing all sections of society, is based solely on the perimeter that ‘Khousabung’ is the most centrally located location for the villages covered by the new sub-division.
However, in total suppression of the public voice and in an utter display of ‘divisive politics’ and in pursuance of parochial agenda, the State Cabinet on Feb 10, 2016 decided to name the subdivision as ‘Kangvai.’ Besides, scores of democratic and peaceful protesters were left injured in brutal crackdowns on them by the State forces during the over one month long anti- State Cabinet decision of Feb 10, 2016 agitation spearheaded by the KSDDC.
The solemn Black Day observance programme today was marked by mass prayer, sharing and motivational speeches from public leaders, raising of slogans and a candle light vigil at Justice Square, the statement added.
