The apex body of the various rebel groups the United Peoples’ Front (UPF) and Kuki National Organisation (KNO), who are currently engaging in suspension of operation with the state and central government along with the Zomi Revolutionary Organisation (ZRO) today warns the state government of dire consequences if the legislative Assembly fails to withdraw the three government Bill passed by the state Assembly on August 31. The decision was announced today in a meeting held today morning at KKN Complex at Churachandpur district head quarter. According to source various speakers on the occasion condemn the state force brutality towards the agitators and condemn the state government authority for the discriminatory attitude of the state force. A speaker questioned on why the state force were allowed to use live bullet while controlling the agitators at Churachandpur district head quarter while the same force were allowed to use only rubber bullet, mock bomb and tear gas shell to control agitators at valley region.
Since the day state Assembly passed the 3 government Bills on August 31 at Manipur State Legislative Assembly, 7 people including a minor had been succumbed to injury in police firing and other incidents. On the first day a person succumbed to his injury while he was caught by the fire while setting ablaze properties belonging to the elected representatives located at Churachandpur district head quarters. Another 3 people died in police action. The agitators that day turn real hostile that even the Deputy Commissioner had to return back inside his office.
Source with the Imphal Times said that sensing unwanted incident and fearing to divert the issue to communal spree, the district administrators called the assistance of the Para Military Forces and the Assam Rifles. The State forces were advice to restrain live bullet firing while controlling the mob.
On the following day that is on September 1 the agitation intensified, hostile protestors filled the street of Churachandpur by burning tyres placing electric post in the middle of the road. The agitators also attacked the police station. During the protest 3 more agitators were killed in police and paramilitary action.
The violent protests were staged amidst curfew imposed by the district administration. Information received by Imphal Times late today afternoon said that womenfolk of Churachandpur district did not allowed any male folk to come out at the street today.

The act of Manipuri gov’t is not tolerable. The CM and his minister allowed the Meitei police to use live bullet is not tolerable. It’s time for us (the tribal) to revenge it in time. They allowed rubber bullet in valley but in the hills live bullet. It’s the act or the act of motivate to kilt the tribal. So lets start to retaliate it.
