Imphal, Sept 7:

Amidst growing criticism, the Coordinating Committee on Manipur Integrity (COCOMI) has issued an appeal to television panelists and the public, urging them to focus on constructive feedback rather than engaging in what they term as ‘destructive criticism’.
During a recent press conference, representatives from the civil society group expressed, “While we recognize the volume of criticism COCOMI has been subjected to on television and various social media platforms, it’s essential to note that many of these criticisms lean towards being destructive. We do appreciate constructive feedback and believe in its importance.”
Addressing their actions and decisions, the group confessed, “There might have been instances where we faltered in our activities. Yet, it’s important to understand the emotional climate under which everyone is operating. We urge everyone to approach criticism in a constructive manner. Playing with emotions can lead to undesired outcomes.”
Elaborating further on the nature and purpose of COCOMI, the organization highlighted that it isn’t a singular entity. It represents a coalition of numerous pivotal organizations that have stepped up to address manifold challenges faced by the state of Manipur. “COCOMI is an embodiment of unity. We were forged from the very need for unity and have always been its staunch advocate,” the representatives conveyed.
In the same vein, COCOMI acknowledged the efforts of the ‘Youth of Manipur’, an emerging youth organization striving to consolidate all Civil Society Organizations (CSOs) in Manipur. However, COCOMI expressed reservations about the methods employed by the youth body. “While their intent to unite all CSOs is commendable, the approach and timelines they have dictated are not practical, given the intricate fabric of our society. Uniting all CSOs is a process that necessitates comprehensive discussions with all stakeholders involved,” they concluded.
