Imphal, Dec 21: Peace-lover leaders of various ethnic groups of Manipur have come together to put an end to the communal dissonance in the state today.

Speakers at the Get-together Meeting expressed their views to strengthen the bond of fraternity and mend communal enmity among the ethnic groups of Manipur.
Manipur, popularly known as land of Jewels has been turned into a fiery cauldron with the protracted issues and infighting. The politics of boundary and concept of his/our/their land made some section of the people senseless. This led to never-ending political feud among us, said Secretary General of Universal Friendship Organisation, Meiraba Angom, who attended at the meeting as one of the speakers.
People of Manipur need to understand each other and instill the sense of belongingness among us, added Meiraba Angom.
Another speaker, S Barani of United Christian Mission Manipur said that the number of selfish people in the state has increased; their selfish and self-centered cost the normalcy and communal peaceful co-existence. What we are seeing during the UNC’s economic blockade and its counter-blockade is the  manifestation of our selfish mind and ideas.

The leaders of tribal communities also appealed the Goodwill Mission team to meet all the concern stakeholders and intervene to end the ongoing economic blockade and other associated issues.
Keirudin Shah, Former President of All Manipur Muslim Coordinating Body said during his speech that taking advantage of the present situation some valley based civil society organizations are instigating communal flare and rubbing salt to the wound of the people.
He also appealed all the independent or supported by armed groups bodies to stop playing politics and work towards bringing peace and harmony in Manipur.
Sapamcha Jadumani, president of IPAK appealed the Naga armed groups to stop interfering into the affairs of the land of Manipur by supporting radical groups to separate the land and indigenous people of the state.
