Imphal, November 17 2011:
The all Manipur Christian Organization (AMCO) on Thursday appealed to the UNC to lift the ongoing economic blockade imposed along the national highways leading to Manipur.
AMCO urged the UNC to consider the plight of school children who will be taking their final examinations in the last week of November and in December, and that the children are the future of the society and to harm their future would be disastrous to the coming generation.
All communities are also looking forward to the Christmas season and it is time to harvest and prepare, so it would be in the best interest of all mankind for the UNC to lift the economic blockade in the state during the season, to express love and forgiveness to one another, the Christian organization added.
AMCO said it will always encourage a culture of dialogue between the various grieving parties and the government of Manipur.
The organisation requested the government of Manipur to look into the grievances of hill people and take pro-active steps to heal and bring a better co-operation for both the people of the hills and the valley.
AMCO further appealed to all who resort to strikes and protest to consider the poor, the children and elderly people and the economy of the state which is falling; many have been facing untold suffering silently and burden is increasing on the poor and downtrodden people.
AMCO will continue to work for peace and harmony and tolerance and to bringing the good news of love and co-existence for all the people of Manipur, the statement said.
