Imphal, Feb 9,
As a part of the indefinite on road mass agitation against CAB under the aegis of MANPAC, today the Emas staged protest at Khwairamband Keithel.
Speaking on the spot Convenor of MANPAC Phundreimayum Abdullah appealed the people to be ready to fight as the bill will possibly be passed at Rajya Sabha.
He also said that the law enforcement agency should know that the people have the right to protest and is entitled in the Constitution.
He further said that the government should withdraw the bill and not only that they should initiate a similar policy like NRC to identify and deport illegal migrants from the state.
Abdullah further condemned the racist policy of the Indian government to genocide the indigenous population of the state.
Speaking at the protest DESAM’s advisor Moirangthem Angamba said that the people needs to boycott the election as there is no use of the elected legislature who acted as a silent spectator during this crucial juncture of the state. He also added that every individual should unite to fight until the contentious CAB is withdrawn from the parliament.
“We should not be afraid to die if we want to live and let our future generation prosper”, added Angamba.
