Imphal, June 8:

Hareshwor Goswami, Vice-President, Manipur Pradesh Congress Committee (MPCC), during a press conference at the Congress Bhavan, opined that peace can return to Manipur if the union government warned the SoO Kuki militants to stay inside the designated camps within 24 hours failing which a shoot at sight order might be issued. He said union home minister, Amit Shah delayed in coming to Manipur because of which the ethnic turmoil has gone out of control. Never did in the history of Manipur such a thing happen before, he raised his suspicion of the grand design of making a Kukiland right from 1960 when the Kuki National Assembly submitted a memorandum to the union government to bring all the Kuki groups under one umbrella.
The maxim of the BJP government, “Saab KaSsaath, Saab Ka Vikaash” has now become “Saab Ka Sarbvanas”, said Goswami adding that Manipur has been filled with hues and cries for one long month under the double engine government. Manipur has witnessed tormentous period in her history every time BJP came to power at New Delhi, he said adding that the scar of the June uprising has not healed evenly when the present ethnic turmoil came on May 3, 2023 when the drug cartels and Narco-terrorists sponsored military campaign of the Kuki militants pounced upon the unarmed Meitei civilians with the backdrop of the formation of the Kukiland.
Goswami warned there might be a serious threat to India’s security if the union government did not take up adequate measures to check the influx of illegal immigrants and the cross-border activities of the Burma-based People’s Defense Force and Chin-Kuki militants who are reported to have killed Meitei civilians in the ongoing crisis. He accused Amit Shah of making hollow promises in checking the SoO Kuki militants amidst his cries for keeping the territorial integrity of Manipur intact, while supporting Manipur people’s demand for the withdrawal of Assam Rifles for remaining a mere spectator when armed Kuki militants burnt down thousands of Meitei houses in front of them, killing innocent people and even committing rapes.
