Imphal: With relation to the proposed Special Assembly Session of the Manipur State Legislative Assembly, the Kuki Inpi Manipur (KIM), Kuki Students’ Organisation -General Headquarters (KSO-GHQ), Kuki Chiefs’ Association (KCAM), and Kuki Women Union (KWU) cabinet meeting have resolved that no Kuki-Zo MLA must participate in the session either in person or through video conferencing in the interest of the people.
The apex body of Kuki tribes said this in a press release on Friday.
“Any Kuki-Zo MLA participating in the Special Session most himself/herself hold all responsibility to answer the people.”
Moreover, it is utterly regrettable that a state government is at the dictate of a particular community. Consequently, the Kuki-Zo people have irreparably lost trust and confidence in the state government, and therefore any participation with the state government will be utterly aimless, the Kuki body said.
The Kuki-Zo people cannot be bounded by any resolution adopted by the Special Assembly session, and will not accept any attempt to impose such resolutions on our land and our people, it added.
The Kuki-Zo people have resolutely stated time and again that total separation of our people from the chauvinistic meiteis backed by the Manipur government is the only solution to the ongoing ethnic strife that is perpetrated by the Meiteis under the careful watch of the incumbent chief minister N. Biren Singh, it said.
Until such time, any effort to conciliate the ethnic violence is only a theatrical performance put up by the Meitei Civil Society Organisations in connivance with the state government, it added.
