Meitei villagers sais deploy village guards in the valley

Manipur: Stating that they do not support the combing operations being carried out by the Center in the Manipur Valley, Khwairamband Nupi Keithel, Sinpham and Saktam Kanba Lup have demanded the deployment of 10 village guards in each Meitei village.
A memorandum of lup signed by its President Ksh. Shanti, Secretary Thingujam Rani and Treasury Kongrailakpam Silapati said, “The concerned government authority has been asked by the state government to immediately take action against the war-torn Meitei villages for self-defence in the light of the list of around 38 vulnerable villages Guards should be posted.”
The Mothers could not accept the government’s appeal to collect the weapons taken from the police armory until 10 village guards were fully formed in each Meitei village for village self-defence.
The memorandum said that it would be logical to collect the police arms only after the deployment of the said 10 village guards in each Meitei village.
Lup also said that the Center and the state government should take measures not to force the youth of Meitei to go underground and arm themselves as such an event will never bring peace and harmony to the land.
