Guarding villages is a priority instead of roaming around in Imphal - ML Chief Pramot

Imphal, May 20:

Meitei Leepun (ML) Chief Pramot Singh informed the media today that people should not forget about the ongoing war. He mentioned that ML represents Herachandra’s legacy, and the organization’s task is to strengthen the Meitei community and maintain good relationships with indigenous people. Pramot Singh emphasized that the ideology of ML is founded on these two core purposes.
Pramot Singh highlighted that without strengthening the Meitei community, it would be impossible to protect Manipur because Meitei are the only group carrying forward the idea of Manipur. He attributed confusion to a historical focus on safeguarding Manipur without understanding the need for strengthening the Meitei.
He observed a growing acceptance of Hindu festivals among Meitei individuals, leading to a revivalist movement. He criticized some civil society organizations (CSOs) for promoting anti-Hinduism in the name of Sanamahi religion instead of highlighting its positive aspects.
Furthermore, he clarified that Meitei Leepun’s task is to promote the identity of Meitei and not religion. He stressed that Meitei should not be considered a tribe but an identity of the nation-state, emphasizing Meitei as a race. For instance, “Tangkhul have homogeneity in looks and culture. It is a tribe. In Meitei, there is no homogeneity. We have different religions such as Guadiya and Meitei. Meitei is a race. We are not just a tribe.”
Lastly, he said that the nature of war has changed. Earlier, Kuki and Meities are attacking and Killing each other. For Meitei Leepun, “Our job is to protect our property and land with the framework of the law. This is like the model based on Lallup. Instead of guarding villages, many people are seen roaming around in the valley travelling in Gypsy. It seems some are not going for fighting at all.”
