Imphal: During elections, Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Union Home minister Amit Shah came to Manipur and campaigned to get votes, but not during this ongoing five months old crisis (Meitei-Kuki conflict), said Shiv Sena Manipur state Unit president M. Tombi.
Modi and Shah compared Manipur as ‘Jewel of India. If they are so much concerned for Manipur they should come to Manipur to solve the present crisis.
Why do they remain silent for this almost five months of crisis? Tombi questioned.
Tombi was addressing reporters at his party office here, on Friday.
People of Manipur neither want President Rule nor to break down the present government. The government should make its stance clear to protect Manipur from Narco-terrorists. There is no use of any political flag if the entire people are against the government. “Where will the flag be unfurled if there is no one?” He questioned.
The main cause of the present crisis was due to failure on administration of Biren Singh government, Tombi said.
The government, CSOs, students and other civil bodies should jointly take a unanimous resolution for a long term solution, he added.
He suggested that all the political parties of Manipur should go and knock the door of Delhi which has been avoiding people’s woes as a mute spectator at the present Manipur crisis.
The BJP should terminate the seven BJP MLAs among the 10 Kuki-Zo MLAs who are demanding for a separate administration in the state, he added.
Shiv Sena Manipur unit ‘strongly’ condemns the excessive act of security forces towards the students in protest. “Shooting Lead Pellets to student protestors of Manipur must be the first case across the nation,” he claimed.
The party strongly condemned killing of two students after captivated by the Kuki terrorist. The Indian intelligence must have the information of the killers of the two students. The culprits involved in killing them must be booked in no time, Tombi said.
He said he had visited the bereaved family members of the two students.
In the case of two women parading naked, the whole nation including governor of Manipur and state government condole the act. However, not a single ruling MLA came to visit the bereaved families of the two students who had been brutally killed by Kuki terrorist, said Tombi.
The state and central government should take effective steps to bring back normalcy in the state, he added.
