Imphal, February 02 2017:
Categorically stating that the Government should know the people are prepared to meet any eventuality rather than find a solution which is unacceptable, the United Committee Manipur (UCM) has urged both the State Government and the Central Government to focus only on possible positive outcome to end the current crisis of economic blockade at the tripartite meeting scheduled tomorrow.
A statement issued by UCM IPR secretary Leishemba Lamaba asserted that all wrong concepts and misinformed historical truths must be streamlined.
The proposed tripartite talk which is going to be held at Delhi is a highly crucial and important meeting, said UCM.
It is a chance to rectify the wrongful concept of misinformed history and bring forth the truth to meet the impending reality so as to bring a common understanding.
"We should not repeat the political blunder that our politicians committed in 1992 in the Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) which was signed between the Government of Manipur and Naga Students Federation (NSF) which is a non entity organization in the context of Manipur", it rued.
History reveals the truth that there is no place in Manipur which belongs to the Nagas, the Kukis, the Meiteis or anybody but indeed it is a place for all the communities that are residing here since time immemorial.
Adversaries have been working continuously to destroy the integrity of Manipur and unity of her people based on the politics of ethnicity and hatred through their political agents.
These agents were responsible for the political blunder committed in the past.
People today are sighing away from the real politics as if nothing had happened after all the subversive and sinister designs to destroy the pluralistic fabric of 'our society' .
"We have to pull them out from their dying beds and expose their deeds.
They are the traitors taking refuge in the political domain today as highly decorated political veterans", the UCM asserted.
It was under their insistence and ploy that in 2002, again in the name of tribal unity, instigated one student organization based in the hills to demand separate territorial council for the hill regions of Manipur.
"No one is foreigner in their own land, no one need to take a certificate from another for their identity when we all have contributed to the cause of Manipur.
"Let us remember who were involved in the uniform scam where money meant for police department to buy uniforms was siphoned off to enemies", it continued.
The political class of today never mentioned about the issue but rather decorated them with honor and respect.
Such act should be condemned by everyone for their political hypocrisy.
Economic blockade should not be an agenda, but rather common understanding of our political, economic and historical realities should be the main focus.
The UCM then urged the State Government and the Central Government not to indulge in any kind of political game when the stakes are high and sentiments are already boiled up.
Any steps that might result in further deterioration of the situation must not be agreed upon.
Instead one should wait for collective understanding, it added.
