Government of India should reimburse money extorted by the militant outfits in form of ‘taxes’ on National Highways in Manipur enjoying ceasefire with government, demanded United Committee Manipur (UCM), an apex body of civil organisations and local clubs on Sunday.
Speaking in an interview here, Yumnamcha Dilipkumar, president UCM revealed that many “illegal taxes’ were imposed by militants and the central government is doing nothing to check their activities.
“Central government is responsible for their excessive activities which resulted in suffering of people of the state. So, they should reimburse the money extorted by the militants from the truckers, transporters and people”, he said.
Speaking on the prolong imposition of economic blockade on NH 39 and 53, Dilip Kumar said the government should bring the agitators to a negotiating table for ending the blockade immediately considering the plight of the people.
“Now time has come for the government to find a policy to control such type of agitations which directly hit to the people and amount to violation of right to life of the people. NGOs behind the imposition of economic blockade should also consider twice before choosing this type of agitations as tools to achieve certain goals”, he said.
Asserting that Government of India continued to pose a threat to territorial integrity of Manipur, the UCM appealed general public to fight unitedly.
