House-burning and continued aggression by radical Meitei militant groups backed by state forces has reached an unprecedented level, leaving our Kuki-Zo brothers insecure, especially around Sugnu. There is an urgent need for protection.
Despite the Home Minister’s assurances, radical Meitei groups have not only continued their relentless acts of violence and arson, but are also causing panic in the Kuki-zo tribal villages of the said area even as this press statement continues.
Innocent lives have been lost, homes have been reduced to ashes, and families have been left homeless even a month after the violence began. This is a clear breach of trust and a direct attack on the ideals of peace and stability that our nation holds dear.
The efforts of our state government have time and again proved insufficient to ensure the safety of our people as the police itself is allegedly biased.
We appeal to our Home Minister to recognize the gravity of the situation and shoulder his responsibility by taking immediate and decisive action to stop the aggression and neutralize the threat to us and restore peace and security to our people. carry out
