Coalition of Indigenes for Right Campaign (CIRCA) and Sana Konung begins monthlong observance against merger agreement of Manipur to the Indian Union (merger agreement gi mayokta leppa tha) campaign by unfurling quarter mast of the indigenous flag (malem puba pakhangba phambal) today at Sana Konung, palace compound.
Ningthouja Lancha, the co-convenor of CIRCA, said that the quarter mast is being observed as a mark of protest to the ongoing crisis in the state. He said the root of the present day crisis is the outcome of the force annexation of the erstwhile Kingdom of Manipur to the Indian Union by signing the merger agreement with the then Maharaja of Manipur at Shillong on this day of 1949.
“Agitation of ILPS in Manipur due to flooding migrant workers, anxious about our integrity of our state, 15 year long hunger strike by Irom Sharmila against the violation of human rights and the emerging rebel movement is due to the illegal merger with the Indian Union”, Lancha added.
“Unfortunately none of the agreement signed between the two countries has been properly enacted and thus such circumstance led to crisis between the ethnic communities of Manipur” Lancha added.
Titular King of Manipur, Leishemba Sanajaoba said that they observed this day every years almost 60 years, but the observation was not against the constitution or Indian government.
 The CIRCA representatives said that the organization will organize meeting at various places across the state during the month-long observance.
