A Mahila Suraksha Manch formed in NC Hills this month with members drawn from both tribal and non-tribal communities has requested all women in the hills district and the State to help bring peace to the trouble-torn district. The Manch said that its formation had been necessitated by the continuous violence in the area and loss of precious life and property. It needs to be mentioned here that since formation, the members of the Manch have been actively participating in relief activities. The Manch while expressing its concern at the growing insurgency in the hills district has called upon the Central Government to take immediate steps to control militancy and bring peace and normalcy to the district. The Manch has demanded nabbing of the insurgent groups that are indulging in killings and arson and their punishment as per law, establishment of monitoring cells to keep tab on the militant groups not sticking to the ground rules of ceasefire agreement, completion of all the mega projects of the district like highway construction, broad-guage conversion and the other schemes on time. Sinlung reported on its website that the Manch has also demanded the Govt to provide long-term relief to the violence-hit people.
