Imphal, August 10:

Armed rebel group Alliance for Socialist Unity, Kangleipak (ASUK) has called 12 hour total shut down in the state of Manipur against the celebration of Indian Independence Day on August 15.
“It may be an Independence Day for mainland India but August 15 was the day that Manipur lost its Independence and started Dark day,” a statement by S. Mangal, Convenor of the Publicity Committee ASUK.
The statement said that the total shutdown will start at 6 am on August 15 and end at 6 pm on the same day. However, the ASUK said that movements related to medical treatment, essential services, and religious-related events will be exempted, during the total shutdown.
The ASUK statement further said that the inclusion of a new programme “Har Ghar Tiranga” this year, celebrating the completion of 75 years of Indian Independence, maybe the right celebration and pride for mainland India but as the day is the handcuff day for the people of Manipur, there is no logic of hoisting Tri Colour Indian flags to houses of Manipur.
Giving reason on why Manipur should not join the Independence Day celebration of India, the ASUK statement said that present Manipur is plagued with various problems. It said the endangering of the existence of indigenous people in its own state due to the mass influx of outsiders and participation in the administration by the outsiders; the increase of drug users, conversion of the society into a beggar community due to the decline in the economic status; the instability in the society as corruption becomes a culture; trust deficit as cheating becomes a common occurrence; failure to unit the people; nonexistence of people to follow the leaders in the effort to solve the issues of Manipur and this has resulted in the society with people similar to scarecrow make by straw. The ASUK also mentioned the failure to provide proper and quality education to the children who are the future of the nation.
The ASUK blames India for the present condition and said that had Manipur been an Independent country at least some measures to protect the people and the society if not all.
