NUPI Samaj Foundation Day highlights fight against intoxicants

IT News
Imphal, June 26:

The NUPI Samaj celebrated its foundation day with a renewed commitment to combating the societal destruction caused by intoxicants and alcohol. Established with a focus on Nisha bandi (prohibition of alcohol), the organization has a storied history of activism.
Ima Nganbi, speaking at the event, reflected on the organization’s powerful legacy. “Ima Chaobi was one of the founding presidents, and Ima Momon and Ima Ramani are prominent figures in NUPI Samaj,” she said. “They sent us for training and meetings at the national level in Delhi.”
Nganbi recounted a significant victory in the organization’s history: “They decided to bring in foreign liquor, but we stopped them. Now, those who consider themselves educated, sitting in the state assembly, are trying to bring in foreign liquor again. If they want to legalize it, they should bring out a white paper. They say they want to legalize it because they can’t stop people from drinking. By that logic, they should also legalize drugs if they cannot stop their use. It is the responsibility of the government. They should not try to destroy the health and minds of the people.”
She also touched on broader political issues, criticizing the Indian government’s involvement in regional conflicts. “We should understand the strategy and tactics of India, from the ceasefire agreements to the ongoing violent crisis between the Kuki and Meitei communities, in which the Indian government has supported the Kukis. India should become neutral; otherwise, we have to take action.”
Ima Nganbi called for the protection of local defenders and the reallocation of central forces. “Village volunteers defending the villages should not be arrested. All central forces should be removed from residential areas and sent to guard the border, as they are meant to safeguard the people.”
