All Manipur Christian Organization (AMCO), the apex body of Christian churches of Manipur Thursday appealed to Manipur chief minister, O. Ibobi Singh to come up with a practical and lasting solution to end the prevailing economic blockade imposed on NH-39.
AMCO president, Rev. Prim Vaiphei and general secretary, Rev. Fr. George G. said in a joint statement, that the organization had conducted an interactive program with various Naga bodies including UNC, ANSAM, Naga Women Union Manipur (NWUM) and NPMHR on May 17 to discuss “workable” solution to the problems faced by the people due to the economic blockade.
The statement said that after a four-hour long deliberation on the prevailing situation in the state, the various organizations observed that the denial of entrance to members of Naga Students’ Federation (NSF) from Nagaland to attend a meeting at Oinam village by Manipur state forces has irked the NSF, resulting in a retaliatory blockade of vehicles to and from Manipur.
The house considered that Manipur government has grieved the Naga people by sending its security forces at Mao Gate to block Th Muivah’s entry to Manipur and opined that the deputation of tribal officers to control the situation with state forces only raised suspicions about the government’s motives, the statement added.
The organizations also pointed out that the government has hurt the sentiments of the people by going ahead with its ADC elections and further opined that the ongoing economic blockade would be lifted if the state government deferred the ongoing elections to create space for revision of ADC Act 2008.
All Manipur Christian Organization also informed that its representatives have met with various civil societies of Manipur UCM, AMUCO, ATSUM and chief minister, Ibobi Singh, and stated they were “equally concerned” about the situation faced by the public.
