All Tribal Rights’ Protection Forum (ATRPFM) has appealed to all voters of Outer Manipur to elect a person with clean records and educated person and vibrant personality.
“We need to elect candidate who is educated and young “, a statement by ATRPFM said.
It added that the functions performed by legislators are vital to democracy and there is no reason why they should be held to lower standards than Grade IV employees. Illiterate persons are not employed even as Grade IV employees and certainly would not be considered at all. A MP is to make laws and amend the Constitution. If a person, who is going to make laws and amend the Constitution, is not educated enough to understand the “pros and cons of the laws”, then it would be “disastrous”.
“It is true that even if a person went through higher education, he can still be unsuitable to be a legislator, but to have a legislator who didn’t even go to college or university in the 21st Century is unfathomable. We, as a State, do not wish to be represented by a dumbfounded persona that can’t find the exit or well-spoken and expressed figure that can handle any situation that arise at the moment like CAB”, the statement said adding that  he must not only be efficient but also honest and who can be trusted with confidence that he won’t abuse his position and would be strictly impartial among communities and ready to faithfully carry out his duties as a MP.
He should be abled to talk and represent the issues and wishes of the people of the tribal communities and the State as a whole fearlessly regardless of his affiliation to a political party, the statement of the ATRPFM said.

Imphal, April, 9,

Socialist Student’s Union of Manipur (SSUM) today appealed to take down videos of Utlou incident which has been uploaded at various social networking platform like Whatsapp, Facebook, YouTube etc., as the videos have defamed the women of Manipur.

The unfortunate incident happened on the 2nd day of Yaoshang Festival 

“The videos circulated in social media by some people immediately after the incident show clothes of women being torn, women being beaten up. And the videos are being made without the consent of these women. They were filmed in a horrible situation. After that a lot of people downloaded the videos and edited them and shared in their YouTube channels to increase their viewers and subscriptions. It might increase the subscriptions and viewership of the channels but it does not do any good for Manipur. It is going to create more problems for women of Manipur”, the SSUM statement said.

The statement added that the action of some people which have uploaded and circulated far and wide malign the image of the people. What is worrying is that since these videos depicts immoral behavior of   the women of Manipur, the fear of rape, molestation and attack on modesty of women from Manipur studying and living outside Manipur will increase. Socialist Students’ Union of Manipur pleads the people of Manipur to understand this situation.

On the other hand, since the government has not done anything about these videos and as it remains silent on the sharing of these videos, SSUM is left with no choice but to appealed people for protection of the modesty of women community of the state. SSUM also urges the people to stop sharing of these videos on whatsapp and other social media immediately.

“Most importantly, the owners of the YOUTUBE channels who have shared the video should take down the videos pertaining to the incident showing women being beaten and clothes being torn immediately”, the SSUM appealed.
