Imphal, June 14: Even though the curfew at Moreh has been relaxed and the border town seems to be slowly limping back to normalcy, many conscientious civil society organisations continue to champion the cause of peace and communal amity amongst the people.

Under the theme, "Let's live together' the Thangmeiband Assembly Constituency Development Forum staged a Wakat Meepham today at Khoyathong bazar to condemn the June 9 killings at Moreh.

The Wakat Meepham was led by Jyotin Waikhom, chairman of the Forum and was held from 10 am till 4 pm.

About 340 people drawn from different communities including Nagas and Kukis took part in the dharna, said a statement.

The All Manipur Rickshaw Drivers' and Pullers' Welfare Association in a statement today said that the killings of 11 persons at Moreh was inhuman.

Killing each other instead of living together amicably is nothing short of terrorism, said the rickshaw drivers body.

The statement categorically said that they are against all such types of senseless killings and will remain so.

The Kom Rem Development Organisation has also strongly condemned the killings and added that it shares the grief and pain of the bereaved family members.

Echoing the same sentiments and calls for peace, the Maichou Ningshing Lup, Khurai, Kwakeithel Thiyam Leikai Chaokhat Khongthang Nupi Lup, Popular Youth Club, Maichou Ningshing Lup, Khurai, Loyalam Nupi Lup ect have strongly condemned the killings and called upon everyone to promote communal peace and peaceful co-existence.
