The Public of Manipur bear no ill feelings against Irom Sharmilla: Maoist

Imphal, May 4: Armed rebel group the Maoist Communist Party Manipur in a statement has strongly condemned and rejected the allegation of India Today journalist Renu Ratheesh, who published an article under the heading “Rejected by her own people” ( India Today dated 2nd May 2017) in connection to the marriage of Irom Sharmila to one Desmond Coutinho.
“This is a naked lie, an attempt to hide the real facts & the truth, insulting and portraying the public in a bad light. The dirty Indian Politics, known all over the world as one of the filthiest Politics can in fact be described as Semi Feudal in nature. The people of Manipur have witnessed the descendents and expanded family members of Okram Ibobi, Rishang Keishing, RK Ranbir, Irengbam Tompok etc displaying family or acquired political inheritance since time immemorial. And in such a political scenario the political plunge taken by Ms Irom under the guidance of certain money oriented NGOs was resented by many. But at the end of the day her wish was respected and she unfortunately lost the fray, true to the nature and color of the filthy Indian Politics”, the statement added.
The statement added that the usage of “as being rejected by her own people” by looking at the result of a mere election and that too standing against the kingpin of the one of the dirtiest era of Manipur Politics is simply childish and unethical, reflecting a sinister attitude of the Indian media against the people of Manipur.
The statement further questions Where was the National media when she was incarcerated in solitary confinement for sixteen years?
It said Indian National media was never interested in highlighting the genuine issues of Manipur viz AFSPA, blockades, natural disasters like flood, earthquakes or any other man made calamities or for that matter even to discuss Irom’s the then prolonged fast and all the while portraying to the rest of the world that her fast was done at the behest of the Rebels(Another man’s Freedom fighter is a rebel to others) and in support of them.
“Do we need to remind the Indian Media that they too are equally dirty as much as the Indian Politics, if not more. Do we need to remind the Indian Media the “World Press Freedom Index Report”, where they are in the 136th place out of a total of 180 countries in terms of transparency”, the Maoist questioned.
“So to judge the people of Manipur by a dirty media controlled by a dirty Indian Politics based on a filthy corruption & nepotism filled Indian modeled Manipur election is indeed laughable, a moronic verdict and a complete farce” the statement added. It added that everyone knows election in India is an investment and candidates spends or throws millions to buy the numbers(voters) since democracy depends on numbers. So the so called Indian democracy is in fact a “thugery” system or a “Money-cracy” and to judge & pass a verdict based on their yardstick is the biggest joke of the century.
“We in fact would like to challenge the Indian Media to do an online referendum on this topic to see who rejects Ms Irom and the online referendum should be, to the chagrin of the Indian Media, done by any organization from a third country where the dirty hands of Indian Politics are barred. We are sure that 99.9% of the Manipuris will show their support for her”, the Maoist said.
