In connection with the death of a cadre of the Zomi Revolutionary Army (ZRA) at Chothe village, the outfit currently ensuing Suspension of Operation with the government clarified that ZRA has no designated camp at Chothe village, Bishenpur district.
The ZRA statement said that those inmates lodged at Chothe Surrenderee camp under the disgruntled, morally deficit, and misguidance of Aikhenthang @ Calvin H were dubbed as “Calvin individual cadres, vide Orders, Imphal the 27th July 2020, Home Department, Government of Manipur.”
The statement said that Calvin H, once VicePresident of Zomi Re-unification Organisation/Zomi Revolutionary Army (ZRO/ZRA), was terminated way back on November 14, 2018, for his arrogant, egregious, over-ambitious, coup attempt and anti-organization activities. Since then, ZRO/ZRA has no connection whatsoever with Calvin H.
It said on the fateful night of March 16, 2021, Lianchinkhup alias Boipu Haokip stabbed to death T. Tongminthang and grievously wounded Robert at Chothe Surrenderee camp. The above mentioned trio was never a cadre of ZRA but hired by Calvin H as paid volunteers on a contract basis to quench his insatiable thirst for money and power.
The unfortunate incident happening on March 16, 2021, at Chothe Surrenderee camp is shocking and could have been avoided had Calvin H remained a loyal, faithful, and a trusted comrade of the Organisation. ZRO/ZRA while vehemently condemning the heinous crime committed by Boipu Haokip, condoles the untimely demise of T.Tongminthang and prays for the speedy recovery of Robert. ZRO/ZRA also urges the state government to act in haste for the surrender ceremony of Calvin H and his individual cadres so as to avoid another catastrophic incident. The macabre event occurring at Chothe Surenderee camp is a shame not only for the Zomi community but also for the state government as well, the statement added.

As a part of the ongoing 4 years Celebration by the Government in the State, an Awareness Campaign on ‘Har Ghar Jal & Water Conservation’ organised by Public Health Engineering Department, Govt. of Manipur was held at the Main Stadium, Khuman Lampak, Imphal, today. The campaign is being organized as a part of Jal Jivan Mission (JJM) envisioned to provide safe and adequate drinking water through individual household tap connections by 2024 to all households in rural India.
PHED Minister Losii Dikho, speaking at the Campaign as Chief Guest, said, Manipur is a beautiful state blessed with lots of natural resources. The state needs young committed people to actively take part in the developmental process of the state. Water has become an important commodity since water is one of the fundamental things necessary for survival. Even though awareness to educate people on preservation and conservation of water has been taken up, it takes time to make the people understand the importance of harvesting water. By 2022, the government with active participation of the Chief Minister will connect every household with safe potable water, he added.
The Minister further said that the youths can make a huge impact in spreading the message on conservation and preservation of water to the people. He appealed to the gathering taking part in the campaign to carry the message of water conservation with dedication and commitment.
Devesh Deval, Commissioner, PHED, said that the department aims to achieve the target within the next one year. Water is a natural resource and should not be taken for granted. Each and every citizen have the capacity to come together towards preservation and conservation of the natural resources. The programme is also being organized in the district level and village level mobilizing the public to create awareness among the people, he added.
A street play on JJM by the Nokphade Cultural Foundation Team enthralled the audience. The Minister also released the IEC Campaign of JJM carrying the message of importance of conservation and preservation of water. Later the Minister flagged off a cycle rally which will spread awareness on conservation and preservation of water among the masses.
