Conflict a chance to unite indigenous communities: RK Meghen

Former UNLF Chairman RK Meghen, also known as Sanayaima, paid homage at the Nupee Lal Memorial Complex to commemorate the fearless Manipuri women who exhibited extraordinary courage on December 12, 1939, in resistance to British imperialism. He attributed the incident to the adverse effects of British imperialism, citing the creation of an artificial famine through the massive export of paddy and rice from Manipur. In response, Manipuri women bravely stood against the ruling class.
Meghen said the current conflict in Manipur is a chance for Meitei and other indigenous communities to come together in unity against armed groups attempting to fragment Manipur for the establishment of separate administrations.
Addressing the media regarding the current crisis, Meghen expressed the challenges faced by the Manipuri people, particularly in dealing with armed attacks against the Meitei. He emphasized that this marks a significant and dire situation, comparable to the severity witnessed during the “Seven Years’ Devastation” or the “Chahi Taret Khuntakpa.”
Meghen further emphasized that the current conflict situation serves as an opportunity for the Meitei community, as well as other indigenous peoples, to come together in unity against armed groups attempting to fragment Manipur for the establishment of separate administrations. He staunchly asserted that the division of Manipur is not an acceptable outcome, and the entirety of the Manipuri population is resolute in preventing such attempts.
He urged the indigenous people of Manipur to stand firm in their resolve against any aggressive activities perpetrated by these armed groups and condemned such actions unequivocally. The collective determination of the indigenous population, he affirmed, should serve as a formidable force against any attempts to undermine the unity and integrity of Manipur.
