Imphal, Feb 18,
All Manipur Muslim organisations coordination committee (AMMOCOC) while condemning the arrest of former MSAD president Veewon Thokchom, demanded immediate unconditional release.
“The act of continuous suppression of the voice of common people in the state of Manipur has become the tactic of the incompetent BJP fascist Government to save their face for the unfulfilled promises made”, SM Jalal President of AMMOCOC write in a statement.
It is worth to mention that, Mr. Veewon led the protest against the Citizenship Amendment Bill and undemocratic arrest and slapping of NSA to one of the state journalist who was arrested for criticising the state Government in New Delhi.
The statement by Jalal also stated that a team of Manipur police commando had raided the local residence Vewon at Lamnai and have threatened his parents to keep the ex-president tight-lipped.
“The act of the incumbent BJP led Government, arresting student’s leader towards suppressing the voice of people of the state for criticising the Govt is really uncalled for”, he statement said and called upon the government of Manipur to stop the autocratic nature of BJP and its ally Government to stop gagging the voice of the people and students who are the future of the state. The Government at any cost can’t stop the mass uproar of the people and this has been clearly proven by the anti CAB Bill protest in the state.
AMMOCOC stated that it stands in solidarity with the student’s leader and demand the immediate and unconditional release of Veewon Thokchom
