Imphal, Dec 14

A group of people from different walks of life today gathered near Western Kangla Gate at around 11 am today morning and showed solidarity to the anti-CAB movement at Assam and Tripura. A one minute silence was also observed as a mark of respect to those departed soul who had sacrificed for the cause of the indigenous people during anti –CAB protest at Assam and Tripura in the last few days.

Young Film Maker Amar Maibam, while talking on the occasion said that he had even thought of going to Assam to join with the people there who are fighting for the future of the Indigenous people of the region.

“I was shocked and very angry with the Government of India who fail to listen to the people of this North East region, I was hurt when I heard news about our brothers and sisters at Assam being killed by the bullets of security personnel while protesting CAB, I became restless when I heard news about our indigenous brothers killed by immigrants who were supporting the contentious CAB in Tripura”, Amar Maibam told Imphal Times.

Editor of Imphal Times, Rinku Khumukcham also joined the solidarity demonstration.

“I am hurt by what has been happening at Assam and Tripura and I feel ashamed of sitting inside my news room writing about what has been happening, so I feel it is my responsibility to join with the people”, the Imphal Times Editor said, adding that he will not only write but will go in the street for the cause of the Indigenous people of this region.

“As for the state of Manipur, an air of relief is blowing with the extension of Inner Line Permit under the Bengal Eastern Frontier Regulation 1853, however, the kind of regulation is not a full protection of the state from CAB. Due to numbers we may not be able to raise voice for scrapping of the new legislation, but we in the North East can jointly fight together to exempt CAB 2019 from the entire states of North East”, Rinku said.

A student from Manipur University, who join the demonstration, said that he will stand against CAB and he will join any movement of the people.

“To be frank I am fed up of this so call democracy which does not look like democracy. Today the voice of the people is not being heard, the government is not listening the voice of the minority and they are doing things that they think are correct which is wrong for minority people of North East states”, Mangal, the student from Manipur University said.

Event Manager James Mayengbam, who also joined the demonstration, said that it is time that we stand for the indigenous brothers together to jointly fight for the cause. CAB is anti people in general and for indigenous people of the state in particular. If we care for our children we should fight against it, James Mayengbam said.
