 Kuki Inpi Manipur (KIM) called a 24-hour total shutdown in the hill districts of Manipur on August 8 in protest against Centre’ alleged lackadaisical attitude towards bringing “amicable solution to genocide carried out by NSCN (I-M) against the Kukis.”

The proposed strike will commence from August 7 midnight, said political affairs chairman of KIM, Shominthang Dougel on Monday.
Addressing media in Imphal, Shominthang said, “Government of India should take into consideration the interest of all stakeholders- the Meitei, the Kuki and the Nagas as well while resolving the Naga political problem.”
“Any disregard to such proposal shall have consequences and the Kukis are ever prepared to protect their identity, rights and the land their forefathers defended and protected during the Kuki war of independence in 1917-1919,” he added.
He said that resolving only the Nagas’ issue will not bring lasting peace and settlement to all issues in Northeast and in Manipur. It will rather escalate the problems, he said.
He reiterated KIM’s long pending demand for settlement of grievances of the Kuki people, triggered by the genocide launched by the NSCN (I-M) and said that “this must be settled first before inking any final deal with the NSCN (I-M).”
