Manipur Governor appeals to resolve CCpur issues

Imphal, April 8: Manipur Governor Dr. Nazma Heptula has appealed the JAC Anti Tribal bill to resolve the issue.
“The agitations which erupted in the hill districts of Manipur immediately after passing of the 3 (three) Bills on ILPS, considered by the hill people to be anti-tribal, in the Manipur Legislative Assembly on 31/8/2015 led to the loss of 9 (nine) young lives in Churachandpur District. More than a year has passed, all the dead bodies except for one are still lying unclaimed in the morgue. The family members of the deceased have not been able to perform the last rites and give a decent burial to their loved ones. This is heart wrenching and not in consonance with the teachings of any of our religions.
“Times have changed and after the 11th Manipur Legislative Assembly Elections a new popular Government is now in place. I am happy that the new Government has taken the initiative for breaking the ice between the Government and the JAC against Anti-Tribal Bills and bringing the leaders of the latter to the negotiating table. There are already signs of a thaw in their rigid positioning. We are living in a democratic country and dialogue is the preferred means of resolving issues in a democracy. There is nothing that cannot be resolved through dialogue and we should all repose full faith in this democratic process. Therefore, I fervently appeal to all concerned particularly to the JAC members to allow a decent burial with all religious rites to the dead bodies lying in the morgue and to participate wholeheartedly in the democratic process of dialogue for resolving their issues”, the statement said.
