Imphal, Dec 31:

MAYOL’s (Manipur Youth League) long march for national regeneration reached Pangei in Imphal East District on its 12th day. This morning, the march started from Sagolmang Higher Secondary School and headed towards Yumnam Patlou, Isakha, Yumnam Khunou, Sambei, Tankham, and Khundrakpam.
Local people, while receiving the MAYOL volunteers, chanted slogans to promote unity among the people of the state by throwing flowers. Slogans of “Let us unite for tomorrow; We will no longer suffer devastation” filled the air at Pangei.
The committed young volunteers from the Manipur Youth League (MAYOL) conducted a public meeting at the Tangja Lilha Pakhangba Laibung in Pangei with local people. Khoirom Loyalakpa, Editor of Naharolgi Thoudang, and Ima Rk. Tharaksana, President of WASDEV, served as resource persons for the public meeting.
MAYOL Convenor Asem Prince gave the keynote address at the meeting and expressed gratitude to the local people for their warm reception along the route. “Now we are a culture of silence, and this will bring a culture of hopelessness to society,” said Asem Prince.
He emphasized that politics shapes our destiny and that we must navigate tomorrow through the politics of today. He quoted a Greek philosopher, saying that politics means the active participation of all citizens in deliberating, debating, and deciding the issues before the community. On May 3, illegal migrant Kuki narco-terrorists attacked the indigenous Meitei community, killing and maiming many innocent people. At this stage, we cannot remain silent, and thus we need to streamline our politics to save our nation, Prince said.
Speaking on the occasion, Khoirom Loyalakpa, Editor of Naharolgi Thoudang, stressed the root of the present conflict that is plaguing the state. “This conflict, which has been haunting the state for nearly 8 months, is the fallout of a long-term plan by India after it forcibly annexed Manipur in 1949,” Loyalakpa said. He critically narrated how the government has been put under full control and utilized every successive government for their long dream of distorting the integrity of Manipur.
“All administrative powers of the elected state government are now in the hands of the Central government, and the present government in the state has no power to administer the state,” Loya said, adding that security forces from the center are sent in the aftermath of the May 3 violence, but not for the protection of the Meitei people or for Manipur. The CAF or paramilitary forces are sent here to protect the Kuki Zo narco-terrorists and not to protect the lives of the common innocent people.
“After the forced annexation of Manipur to the Indian Union, the first Prime Minister of India, Jawaharlal Nehru, shrewdly gifted Kabo Valley to Burma while fooling the people of Manipur by giving it the name ‘Switzerland of India.’ Since then, Manipuris have become economically, politically, and socially endangered. India thinks of how to suppress Manipur, and for that reason, AFSPA has been imposed since 1958.
After the public meeting, the committed young volunteers from the Manipur Youth League (MAYOL) will have lunch. The marchers will then proceed from Pangei to Khurai Lamlong Higher Secondary School. An evening public meeting will also be held.
Local people, while receiving the MAYOL volunteers, chanted slogans to promote unity among the people of the state by throwing flowers. Slogans of “Let us unite for tomorrow; We will no longer suffer devastation” filled the air at Pangei.
