Student Organizations demand resignation of Security Advisor and DGP

Imphal, June 14:

Student organizations in Manipur have criticized the state and central governments for their inadequate response to the ongoing violence initiated by Kuki militants since May 3, 2023, and have demanded the resignation of the Security Advisor and DGP. They argue that despite various statements from authorities, including Home Minister Amit Shah, the crisis has been mishandled, with conflicting explanations ranging from external aggression to an ethnic conflict between the Meitei and Kuki communities.
The recent ambush on Chief Minister N. Biren Singh’s advance security team has highlighted the worsening law and order situation in Manipur. Reports indicate that armed Kuki militants have infiltrated Jiribam, prompting the Chief Minister’s office to alert the DGP and Security Advisor to bolster security in the area, the statement released by the organizations added.
Student leaders Sukham Bidyananda, President of KSA; Mayengbam Somorjit Meitei, President of DESAM; Ningthoujam Dhanakumar Meitei, President of SUK; and Oinam Nikarson, President of AIMS, have stated that the attacks by Kuki militants reveal significant security lapses. They demand the resignations of the DGP and Security Advisor, holding them responsible for the ongoing violence, displacement, and suffering in Jiribam. The students argue that the government must assert its authority to restore law and order in the state.
Despite over a year of violence, the DGP and Security Advisor remain in their positions, a situation the student organizations find unacceptable. The establishment of buffer zones, red zones, and lines of control further demonstrates the government’s failure to maintain order, they stated.
According to the student organizations, the Suspension of Operations (SoO) agreement with Kuki militants expired on February 29, and there has been no news of its extension. The student organizations assert that if the SoO is not extended, the government should take decisive action against the militants, a step that has yet to be taken.
