Addressing media at the sidelines of the protest, one of the protestors, Huirem Binodini Devi said that the present conflict has been continuing from past two months by alleged incited by Kuki militants. But unfortunately, central leaders didn’t utter single words and didn’t listen the voice of people of Manipur till date. The silence of government of India made them to feel very sad.
“The stoic silence by Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Home Minister Amit Shah provoked us to feel that we are not a citizen of India. The central leaders should listen our voice if we are citizen of India. Now our sense of nationality is in stage of confusion. So, we would like to separate Manipur from Government of India and restore pre-merger political status,” she demanded while stating that prime minister and home minister should stop watching present unrest of Manipur as drama.
She continued and informed that mass protest will be held on July 19 which will be joined by people of all community Naga, Meitei Muslim except Kuki.
She said that plantation of poppy in the state destroy forest and spoil life of many youths of Manipur. Now state is again facing conflict allegedly initiated by armed Kuki militants. Losing life of many youths in conflict and drug menace too has reach to intolerable limit.
She also condemned state MLAs not revealing their concrete stand on stopping the conflict.
On the other hand, women vendor organisation, Lukmai Sellup also demanded central forces to perform their duties without any bias. The protestor also highlighted how poppy cultivation impacted to society and environment.
During the protest, the protestors used play card that reads enforce state forces at Moreh, open relief camp for Meitei at Churachandpur, Kangpokpi and Moreh, arrange resettlement of Meitei at Churachandpur, Kangpokpi and Moreh.
