Imphal, February 27 2017:
Demanding justice to different socio-economic and political issues such as seizure of drug consignment from Imphal airport, Loktak scam, killing of Rabina and Sanjit in alleged fake encounters, failure to enforce ILPS or similar mechanism and emergence of non-indigenous people as candidate(s) of the ensuing State Assembly election, the Struggle Committee Manipur (SCM) has geared up to launch a series of mass agitation.
Speaking to media persons at Manipur Press Club here today, SCM spokesman Naorem Tanoranjan called upon all the people to cease their daily activities tomorrow and take out torch rallies at night.
He maintained that declaration of the United Naga Council (UNC) as an unlawful organisation is a prerogative of the State Government.
Pointing out that the Congress Legislature Party (CLP) recently adopted a resolution to declare the UNC as an unlawful organisation and the same resolution was forwarded to the Central Government, Tanoranjan contended that there was no need to consult the Central Government.
UPA Government's Finance Minister P Chidambaram once told the West Bengal Government that if any organisation was harassing people and if there was ample evidence to prove it, the State Government could declare the particular organisation as an unlawful organisation.
The State's economy has been completely monopolised by non-indigenous people.
Now, they have set their eyes on taking control of the State's political affairs, Tanoranjan said referring to the emergence of non-indigenous people as candidate(s) of the ensuing election.
People of Manipur and civil society organisations should take up necessary pre-emptive measures as non-indigenous people have set their eyes on taking complete control of the State's economy as well as political affairs, he asserted.
EEVFAM member Nina Ningombam said that maximum number of people were killed in fake encounter during the time of incumbent Chief Minister O Ibobi when Y Joykumar was the State DGP.
The situation is very critical.
People need to introspect and decide carefully whom they should vote for, Nina said.
