Imphal, Dec 22: At a time when government remains as mute spectators to the prevailing situation here in certain part of Valley region, slogans of “we are one, we want peace” shouted by different communities fill the air of Yangangpoki – a village located in between Imphal East and Ukhrul district.
Yangangpoki is a home to Tangkhul, Kuki, Meitei and various other tribes and have been living in peaceful co-existence since time immemorial.
With the situation along Imphal-Ukhrul road inbetween Khurai to Seijang becoming worst with no authority coming forward to contain the crisis, the Yanganpokpi area Chingmi Tammi Peace Committee today organized all community meeting at Yangangpokpi Keithel.  Members of Tangkhul community, Kuki Community, Meitei Community and other smaller tribes inhabiting in the area attended the public meeting.
Speakers on the occasion deliberated the ongoing issues which threaten the peaceful coexistence between various communities. They appealed people not to be driven by rumours spread to create misunderstanding among different community.
General Secretary of the Yanganpokpi area Chingmi Tammi Peace Committee, Elangbam Shyamkishore speaking to reporters said that the committee was formed in 2001 and since then it has been working on to sort out the differences between various communities at time of crisis.
The general secretary appealed the government authority to lift the indefinite curfew imposed in the road stretch between Khurai to Seijang so that people could restore to normalcy. On the other hand the committee also appealed the people of the area to restrain violence and allow safe passage to the tribal people who are on their way to celebrate Christmas and New Year festival.
