Imphal, December 02 2016:
The Meitei/Meetei Nationalist Party (MNP) has today come out strongly against the opposition to Sadar Hills district by UNC and to the alleged assertion of Kuki organisations that "Sadar Hills formation will not affect the land of Meiteis" .
In a statement, the party said that the opposition of the UNC to the creation of Sadar Hills district reeks of Naga separatist movement inside the territory of Manipur. It also termed the assertion of the Kuki organisation that Meitei land will not be affected by the formation of the district as communal.
Stating that the purpose of forming a new district is to make administration more effective, MNP observed that district creation should not be interpreted along community line.
