The All Manipur United Clubs Organisation has been working tirelessly to protect the 1000-year-old history and territorial integrity of the state and will continue to do so. To stand against any force attempting to distort the territorial integrity is the unwavering objective of AMUCO. The ongoing conflict in the state arises from the Tribal Solidarity March on the afternoon of May 3 in Churachandpur District. This was stated in the ongoing Way Forward Campaign by AMUCO. Today’s campaign was attended by T Gandhi, Vice President AMUCO, Kh Purnimashi, Advisor Palem, Dr. Norendro Thokchom Secretary General, Santosh Koijam, Organisation Secretary, Laishram Krishnachandra, Publicity Secretary, Dijwo Mangang, President IEDUCO, Kh Orendro, Vice President, Bimolata Mongjam, Secretary General IEDUCO, Bashan Chief Commander Village Volunteer Force, President Lamlai Kendra United Clubs Development Committee and Lamlai Village Development Committee.
The main reasons behind the ongoing conflict are the ban on poppy plantations in the hill areas of the state, the successful implementation of the government’s War on Drug campaign against Drug traffickers and manufacturers, and the government initiative to save Wildlife Sanctuary and Protected and Reserved forest from illegal encroachment.
AMUCO has put forward its demands to end the ongoing crisis in the state, which includes putting an end to the war, providing assistance to the displaced people who have lost their houses, properties by the government, and rehabilitating the displaced people to their original birthplace. AMUCO demands to amend Article 3 of the Indian Constitution, as this particular article gives the power to resize the boundary of a state in India and to put a clause in this particular article for Manipur to protect the territorial integrity of Manipur, to implement NRC in the state to prevent the influx of illegal immigrants endangering the national security of India.
AMUCO also demands District re-organisation and abolish Political Units set up according to communities, as the hardship faced by the minority tribes like Kom, Chiru, Aimol and Kabui inhabiting in Churachandpur district needs to be ended and hence, it is a must to reorganize Kangpokpi district earlier called Sadar Hills and Bishnupur district. Further, AMUCO demands to maintain a Special Administrative Zone in Moreh and Beihang, as these places fall in the Special Economy Zone and are inhabited by different communities. Lastly, to protect the Community Reserved Forest and to restrict Narco Trade and Poppy plantation in the state.
