The Scheduled Tribe demand committee of Manipur (STDCM) will be organizing a public meeting at Thangmeiband Athletic Union (THAU) ground on January 17 in connection with the completion of 3 years of its struggle in the state.
Speaking to media persons during a press meet at the Manipur Press Club, president of STDCM Dr. Y.Mohendro singh said that the STDCM has garnered a lot of support during the 3 years long struggle of demanding inclusion of Meitei as Scheduled Tribe and reiterated that the Demand Committee will continue various democratic agitations with the support of the people to fulfill its demand.
He further added that the reservations, quotas and income tax relaxations are secondary matters, the President said that the primary objective of the demand was to bring equality, unity, peace and harmony in the State.
Dr Mohendro also said that ST status demand for Meiteis/Meeteis would never infringe upon the rights of other tribes and communities in the state and appeal to join and forward suggestions in the public meeting.
