Imphal, Aug 30:

In light of the ongoing crisis, the Thadou Students’ Association (TSA) has made its stance clear on the National Register of Citizens (NRC) for Manipur. They have expressed support, emphasizing its fair and unbiased implementation for all Indian citizens in the state.
TSA, in its official statement, insists on the inclusion of all concerned groups in discussions to ensure a just, transparent, and successful implementation process. The statement, bearing signatures from TSA representatives across states, strongly condemns all acts of violence against innocent victims.
This condemnation specifically refers to the recent events in the neighboring Bishnupur and Churachandpur districts on August 29, where a violent confrontation resulted in two deaths and injuries to seven.
The statement also condemn the burning down of TSA registered office at Haokip Veng, Palace Compound, Mahaballi Road in Imphal on May 4, and the life threats and arson attack on the home of TSA-GHQ’s Secretary General, Michael Lamjathang Haokip, at Peniel village in Lamka (Churachandpur) by some heavily-armed miscreants on the night of May 7, 2023.
In their call for clarity, the TSA has urged the Coordinating Committee on Manipur Integrity (COCOMI) to define the terms “narco-terrorists” and “illegal immigrants”, which COCOMI has frequently used in its statements.
Furthermore, TSA’s statement acknowledged the Manipur government’s establishment of a cabinet sub-committee. This committee’s focus is on those who’ve sought refuge in Manipur following the military coup in Myanmar.
Highlighting the Thadou community’s position, TSA clarified that they are not involved in any anti-India protests or demonstrations, either domestically or internationally.
The statement reads, “We stand with peaceful gatherings that aim to restore normalcy in Manipur. We are in solidarity with those affected by the crisis and are grateful for the support received globally.”
In their closing remarks, the student body emphasized the imperative of ensuring the safety and security of innocent civilians, urging both Central and State governments to prioritize this responsibility.
