Imphal, Aug 7:

Coordinating Committee on Manipur Integrity (COCOMI) have submitted a memorandum to the Prime Minister of India urging him for intervention of the central government in resolving the crisis of Manipur.
In the memorandum submitted today, the COCOMI urged the PM to ensure that the foreign elements including some of the leaders of the Kuki-Zomi Suspension of Operation groups who are of foreign origin identified and confined or deported to Myanmar. Those foreign elements directly involved in the conflict are either eliminated or pushed out of the territory of India, it said.
The memorandum further stated that the territorial integrity and the system of administration in Manipur should not be altered as it has a glorious history and the Meitei have been known for its sense of equity.
“Any change in the territorial integrity and administration may bring a death knell to many small tribal communities; which will be a great loss as even now they are highly marginalized”, the memorandum stated. It further urged the PM to identify illegal immigrants and to implement the National Register of Citizens in the state with 1951 as the base year.
The COCOMI also submitted the resolutions adopted on popular demand in the Mass Rally held on 29th July, 2023 in Imphal starting from THAU Ground and culminating at Hapta Kangjeibung which was participated by several lakhs of people, coming from different communities of Manipur
The resolutions adopted on popular demand are –
1. To end the present conflict, foreign (illegal immigrants) Chin-Kuki Narco-Terrorism must be totally exterminated.
2. No separate administrative arrangement in Manipur.
3. National Register of Citizens (NRC) must be fully implemented in Manipur.
4. A special session of the Assembly should be summoned by 5th August, 2023 to adopt some action-oriented resolutions to save Manipur. If the session is not summoned by the given dateline, strong agitations will be followed according to people’s resolutions.
5. A memorandum should be submitted to the Hon’ble Prime Minister of India to apprise the first three resolutions.
