Imphal, Jan 7:

On the 19th day of the MAYOL long march, Professor MC Arun of Manipur University emphasized the importance of understanding the enemy of the people of Manipur.
“During the Seven Years Devastation from 1819 to 1826, our ancestors, under Maharaj Gambhir Singh and Nara Singh, knew the enemy and fought against them. During 1891, the leaders of Manipur at that time knew who we were fighting with. However, today, the people of the state seem to be confused about who we are fighting with,” Professor Arun said during a public meeting held today at Mongsangei.
The MAYOL volunteers continued their march from Thangmeiband THAU Ground and reached Mongsangei SUN Club after passing through Khuyathong, Nagamapal, WahengLeikai, Keishampat, Keishamthong, Nambul Mapal Road, Haobam Marak, and Heirangoithong.
Professor MC Arun astutely pointed fingers at the real enemy of the people, stating that during the devastating period of the Seven Years Devastation, there were nine kings in Manipur who bribed the Awa (Burmese) King and ruled in their favor. The professor further stated that the people need to understand the kind of Manipur they want to protect for the future. He said that in order to have a Manipur free from fear and corruption, the people need a new leader who can save the nation. The professor is also optimistic about the different ideas and opinions among the people of Manipur. He said that the way the people express their ideas and opinions about the concept of future Manipur is far better than a “yes sir” mentality.
“Opinions and ideas from different individuals may vary, but they are all eager to protect and preserve the Manipur that our ancestors have preserved for us, facing all challenges,” Prof. MC Arun said.
Ima Purnimashi, the president of the Ching Tam United Welfare Association (CTYWA), criticized the central government for neglecting to take effective measures to solve the ongoing crisis in the state during her speech at the meeting.
After the meeting, the dedicated young volunteers of MAYOL continued towards Heirangoithong, Chingamakha Road, Manipur College Road, and the second public meeting at the Hao Ground Singjamei Chingamathak. Dr. N. Joykumar (Retd. Prof) attended as the main speaker. The MAYOL volunteers will spend the night at Manipur College.
