PREPAK (Pro) hails corona warriors, accuses centre
Source: Chronicle News Service

Imphal, May 31 2021: In connection with its 11th Progressive Day which falls on June 1, the proscribed People's Revolutionary Party of Kangleipak (Progressive) has extended greetings to all the Kangleichas (Manipuris) and expressed deepest sympathy to those families, who have lost their loved ones during the on-going Covid-19 pandemic.

It further appreciated the corona warriors for rendering their noble services.

PREPAK (Pro) chairman L Paliba M informed that the party will not celebrate its anniversary this year as a mark of respect and condolences to the three departed leaders of PREPAK, who passed away recently in an unfortunate incident.

In a release, the chairman asserted that the health care infrastructure in India is on the brink of collapse.

Many Covid-19 patients have died due to shortage of life saving medical supplies and lack of hospital beds.

Dead bodies have been found dumped in India's holiest river Ganga like dead animals.

Many judicial courts have slammed the Government of India (GoI) for undermining the severity of Covid-19 crisis, he added.

Recently, the Delhi High Court notified to the central administration to pursue the much-needed medical oxygen by any means - begging, borrowing, stealing or importing to save people's lives.

The whole world is looking at the worst and disgraceful conditions of Covid-19 in India, L Paliba pointed out.

It is ironical that the GoI declared victory over the coronavirus, and began to indulge in 'Vaccine diplomacy'.

Three months before, India had exported vaccines just to show off to the world that India can compete with China.

Currently, India being the super spreader of this pandemic, has been seeking to import vaccines from anywhere else to exterminate the variant of Covid-19 which is also known as 'Indian variant'.

Such ridiculous scenario reminds the proverbial 'frog that burst by puffing itself while trying to reach the size of a cow', he ridiculed.

Maintaining that Indian ruling elites boastfully asserted that "Make in India" initiative would enable India to replace the Chinese items, L Paliba enquired whether it isn't ludicrous that the bronze cladding panels used in the world's tallest iconic statue of Sardar Valabhbhai Patel were made in China.

As such India's "Make in India and Vaccine Diplomacy" has become the living example of humorous metaphor of 'Keibui Keioiba trying to carry water in a hollow bamboo jar' .

He maintained that more than 70 lakh pilgrims participated in the Kumbh Mela and around one lakh people were allowed to gather in many election rallies which ultimately catalysed the spike in Covid cases.

Since the GOI knew the likely woeful outcome of the pandemic in advance, there was the feeling of apprehension about the inadequacies of precautionary measures.

"Is the GOI planning to depopulate surreptitiously? .

If it is true then the gravest misfortune will fall upon the colonized and dependent Kangleipak, which has a small population.

The current alarming death rate from the pandemic is distressful, and if left unchecked, the future generation will vanish from our soil", the chairman cautioned.

Making it clear that the Constitution of India does not provide much administrative power to state like Manipur, Paliba explained that the state government cannot independently mobilize the resources and means for development.

The practical motto of the Indian Constitution is the centralization of decision making by few at the centre while decentralizing its adverse outcomes to the states.

The state government could not play its role in national decision making discussion.

The handful of ruling leaders has taken decisions on demonetization, CAA, Farmers Bill, Covid-crisis management, but their negative outcomes are being distributed among common people, he denounced, while adding that it is now obvious that Manipur is not empowered to garner help from other countries during the present critical situation.

The fact that Manipur is being suppressed by the rules of Indian constitution means that the state is constitutionally under siege.

Such hegemonic precept had colonized the mind of Manipuris by inducing the people into thinking that the state's share would not be available without begging from the centre.

Alleging that the state's leaders with their motive on contract works entreated the centre too, L Paliba ridiculed that they have never thought of claiming the rightful shares nor have shown boldness given the entitled miniscule share.

Disgraceful and cowardly act also make the mainland Indian to detest the Manipuri as a whole, he said, while adding that living under India's mercy amid these spineless bone-headed local leaders and exploitative system of law, development and progress could not come forward.

The recent handful of developmental programmes would also be earning space for Indian capitalists.

It is good to notice that the 72 years of Indian ruled Manipur could not touch the once golden period of Kangleipak kingdom, he added.

Western countries, particularly the USA, have extensive mind-set that the democratic norms must be American model akin to the taste of American product "Coca Cola" whose taste is homogenous everywhere.

They do not give much emphasis on the diverse forms of democracies adopted in accordance with the variation of history and traditions among countries.

Under the radar of this political doctrine and democratic compass, USA views China and Russia with a feeling of animosity irrespective of their long civilizational history.

Likewise, the Indian ruling elites also disregard regional peripheral history, rather they have been propagating that India (Indian) should be a Hindu nation with Hindu religious and cultural bond and Hindi as national language.

One newly offshoot of "Indian Democracy" with the end of Hindutva and Akhand Bharat, has been preaching the "Idea of India" to assimilate into India, he compared.

Highlighting that such dominant and assimilation policy of the "Idea of India" could not be opposed effectively simply by protest on the roads and so on, the chairman opined that the evolutionary, philosophical, spiritual and political history of Kangleipak must be fully and consciously instilled in the mind of Kangleichas through educational syllabus.

The influential wave originated from India has been losing the knot of discipline, ethos, moral and character of Manipuris.

These changes need to be stopped by knowing our age-old valued custom and tradition, he added.

Drawing the attention of the people, L Paliba said that there must be robust bedrock in the mind-set for "Kangleipak first, India second, not to be Indian".

The patriotic sentiment is the only saviour and safety-valve of Kangleipak, there is nothing else.

The energy and power for defending the motherland must be drawn from Kangla and Koubru.

Kangla must be the political centre of gravity rather than Delhi.

At this juncture, we must think and act under the vision of "Harmony in diversity" toward the end of "Unity in diversity", he added.

Pointing out that among the countries which had been ruled continuously under monarchy, Kangleipak is also one next to China, he continued that China is a civilization state which has long history of social and cultural development.

The formation of so-called India as a nation state with the objective of centralization of power was imitated from western version of nation making process.

Many intellectuals now opined that India is filled with many issues and problems which cannot be solved easily.

This narrative means that India cannot be reformed, it must be re-formed structurally, he explained, while cautioning that as long as we are part of disintegrated India, many will die from jobless inflicted mental illness and drug addiction or any ordinary disease and new pandemic.

Only the independence of Kangleipak is the panacea for saving Kangleipak, he asserted.

Appealing to the people for fighting together against the deadly pandemic, L Paliba exhorted all to compassionately serve and care for Covid-19 patients.
