In solidarity with COCOMI’s campaign, torch rallies were marched widely across the valley districts on Thursday night filling the sky with chants of “Long live Manipur”.

On the other hand, mounting pressure to disclose the contents of the agreed points of the final round of Naga peace negotiation, Coordination Committee on Manipur Integrity (COCOMI) today announced cutting all communications with the state government.

In response to COCOMI’s call , slogan chanting and torch rallies were held across the valley districts on Thursday night for the second consecutive day.

With  the rallies also carried out in Imphal, police and security personnel had a hard time keeping vigilant of any unwanted incidents. 

Till the time of filling this report, there was no report of any untoward incident in rallies by womenfolk and youths starting from 7 pm. 

The torch rallies were carried out even as alert protests were continued widely during in the day.

Meanwhile, intensifying its pressure to disclose the contents of the agreed points of the final round of Naga peace negotiation held on October 31, COCOMI on Thursday resolved to boycott the upcoming Manipur Sangai Festival from November 21.

The apex body further announced cutting all communications with the state government while strongly condemning the Central and state governments for not fulfilling their demand.

COCOMI coordinator Sunil Karam announced further announced intensification of the ongoing alert protest while addressing a press conference late this afternoon in Imphal.

Karam reminded that COCOMI has been pressurizing the government to convene a special assembly session and adopt a resolution opposing any sort of ethnic based administrative arrangement in the state in the peace accord of GoI with the Naga rebel groups.. 

Karam announced that from Friday, COCOMI will start an alert protest by blocking one side of the road while chanting slogans against any move to distort Manipur.

Left parties have also raised the demand to convene a special session of the state Assembly and take a fresh resolution to safeguard the territorial integrity of Manipur.

A joint statement of the four left parties – CPI, CPI (M) AIFB and RSP – stated that they have  decided to pressurize  the state government to convene the special session of the Assembly after a threadbare discussion on the prevailing unrest situation in the state.

The parties further demanded that the fresh resolution adopted by the Assembly must be sent to both the houses of Parliament so that the matter can be highlighted to both the houses during the sessions commencing from November 18.

The left parties further decided to press the Central government to immediately  invite  stakeholders including state governments, political parties and CSOs of Manipur, Assam and Arunachal Pradesh to discuss the proposed peace accord before finalisation.
