Public discussion to end arm conflicts in Manipur was held on Tuesday at Yairipok Khoirom Leikai in Thoubal.
The discussion was part of series of the meeting organized by civil societies since the arrest of UNFL chairman, RK Meghen.
The meeting adopted three resolution, to hold a plebiscite to end the conflict, to hand over members of all UG groups arrested outside the state including UNLF chairman, RK Meghen to the state government and people’s participation to end the present conflicts.
Further the meeting resolved to press the United Nations and other international Human Rights bodies to extend their intervention and cooperation.
Earlier in a discussion held, United People’s Front, president YK Dhiren said that the state has been facing oppression for more than five decades.
The question is “how long should we tolerate such oppression.” Advocate Y Priyokumar of All Manipur Bar Association said that the state with a 2000 year old history, having its own language, scripts and culture was forcibly merged into Indian Union on October 16, 1949 and since then armed groups started struggling to regain the lost sovereignty begun.
He said that the state was not represented when the India’s constitution was drafted.
This was the actual starting point of the conflict between India and Manipur. In such situation the state government must find a way an end the conflict, he added.
Sunil Karam, vice president, NIPCO said that the people are at the jaws of misery and further asks whether the people are living with pride under the present system of governance.
He added that the people have been under the guns of security forces and armed revolutionaries which was lengthier than the Mahabharata and Ramayana epics, he added.
