2-day public curfew against government’s negligence on Manipur crisis

Imphal: The Thoubal and Kakching District Apunba Lup (TAKDAL) has announced to impose statewide curfew for two days beginning on Friday against Centre and Manipur governments negligence on the over four months long ethnic clash in the state.

The organisation also announced to launch a non-cooperation movement against the central and state government from September 10.

The announcement was made during the one-day public convention organised by TAKDAL at Thoubal Sapam, under the theme ‘No more politics and no more violence against innocent life’.

The convention took the decision to impose the curfew as ‘the Prime Minister Narendra Modi does not visit Manipur even when prevailing Meitei-Kuki conflict has crossed four months, the Union home minister’s divide and rule game by ruling out separate administration in the state and failure of the state government to hold a responsive state Legislative Assembly to chalk out necessary measures to end the crisis’.

The people’s convention also resolved to demand to the central and state governments to take immediate action to end the ongoing violent conflict and to ensure the displaced civilians return back to their rightful homes by providing them full security and protection.

It was demanded to root out poppy cultivation and to push away illegal immigrants encroaching on reserved and protected forest areas.

TAKDAL says it will extend all support and solidarity to the initiatives jointly taken by the civil society organisations in the interest of the people.

The chairman of the organisation was Y. Bhagyachnadra presided the convention. Retired IAS RK Nimai and head of Manipur University Law department, Yumnam Premananda were the resource persons at the event.

Many CSOs of Kakching and Thoubal districts, Meira Paibis, intellectuals, individuals from the Meitei-Pangal community and other communities from the two districts took part in the convention and put their suggestions.
