Unprecedented turnout from different communities at Mass Rally for common future

With the participation of more than 2 lakh people from different communities of Manipur, the Mass Rally for the common future of Manipur kicked off at THAU ground, Thangmeiband today morning at around 11 am.
Today’s mass rally was jointly organized by AMUCO, CCSK and UCM. A massive number of people participated in today’s mass rally including people from different communities, students from different schools of the state, different non-government organizations, civil society organisations, clubs, meira paibis, handicapped persons, old aged peoples as well as small kids.
Supporting the rally, medical camps were set up at various points along the route of the rally by different hospitals and clinics operating in the state which also provides road map along with medical arrangement points and mobile ambulance team to the participants of today’s mass rally.
Many placards and banners were being carried during the mass rally and many slogans were also shouted against the Indian government.
Local clubs and meira paibis also provided assistance of water and eatables to the participants as encouragement of the mass rally.
A few participants, especially small school students and old aged persons collapsed during the rally but none were apparently fazed by the heat and the fatigue.
Later the participants joined the mass meeting with the organizers at the Khuman Lampak main stadium. YK Dhiren, Convenor of the organizing committee said in his key note address that the people of Manipur who has been living together from time immemorial has been trying to be divided by a few narrow-minded, self-serving elements It is time to identify these enemies of the state so that we can live peacefully. Talking about the unrest which arose after the agreement for a peace talk between NSCN IM and India government was signed in 1997, the speaker raised the main concerns about the social tensions that developed as a result of the secretive and ambiguous nature of the exercise along with the undeclared agenda of the peace talk. The people of the state have the right to know the truth and the hidden agenda of the peace talk, the Convenor asserted, adding that Indian government should bring out a white paper of the 3th august 2015 frame work agreement that was signed between Indian government and NSCN-IM.
Referring to the long and shared history of the state, he further added that although we might be different in religion, language, belief or community, we jointly stand and fought together when any external enemies attacked us and this is clearly reflected in our history. We all are bound together by unique principles of unity and Manipur was built on such principles. The Indian government should respect out history and not try to destroy the principles of our togetherness.
He further added that we respect the Indian government for recognizing Naga community but the recognition of Naga society should be kept within Nagaland state and must not be allowed to leek over into the neighboring states and should condemn the few groups who have been sowing the seeds of separatism in the name of Autonomy.
