President of the Manipur Pradesh Congress Committee (MPCC) K. Meghachandra has expressed skepticism on how long the people of Manipur will continue to live as Indians reacting to the silence and inaction of the government of India to the over 7 month-long conflict in Manipur which is more likely to be a genocidal mission.
Talking to reporters at Congress Bhavan today morning, K. Meghachandra said that Prime Minister Narendra or Home Minister Amit Shah has not spelled a single word about the brutal murder of 13 (thirteen) Youths of Manipur at a place which is in close proximity to Assam Rifle Post in Tengnoupal District on December 4.
Megahachandra said that people now felt that some hidden political agenda seemed to be going towards the people of Manipur. He said, “If this continues how long we are going to live as bonafide citizens of India inside the territory of India”.
“We the in the MPCC and also the AICC strongly condemn the brutal killing of 13 unarmed youths at a place which is in the close proximity of Assam Rifles post”, the MPCC president told the media persons.
The state congress leader said that when people suffer due to cyclones in Tamil Nadu, Andhra Pradesh, and Puducherry, Prime Minister Modi through various social media mediums including the ‘X’ shared his pains even at midnight. But when 13 unarmed youths were tied and brutally murdered in the Tengnoupal district no words were expressed by leaders of either the state government including the Chief Minister or the central government.
For the Congress Party, the AICC president, MPs, and others have condoled the brutal murder as well as the pains and sorrow of the people of Manipur which is still continuing even after 7 months.
“When are these governments both at center and state stop this violence of mass killings which is more like a genocide mission”, Meghachandra asked.
On the other hand, K. Meghachandra said that the Internet ban in Manipur was lifted after around 7 months by the government for taking political mileage and not for the interest of the people. The MPCC president said this as the ban on the internet was lifted on the day of the declaration of state Assembly Election results of four states in which BJP won in 3 states with absolute majority.
“Internet ban was lifted to show their celebration for political gain and not in the interest of the people of Manipur”, Meghachandra said.
While urging the three MPs from the state to put up the grievances of the people due to the ongoing crisis during the upcoming parliament session, Meghachandra also said that India is playing a double game in the Myanmar violence that is giving impact to Manipur and other neighbouring states of India. He said that reports about the Indian government standing on the fence in the Military and the pro-democrats war have already been published in international media.
“The government of India had help arms and ammunitions worth Rs. 422 crores to the Military Junta while on the other hand, they are also providing shelter and assistance to the pro-democracy fighters of Myanmar”, Meghachandra said.
