In support of kuki-chin-Mizo-hmar-Zomi civil society to stage protest

Imphal: The Meitei Leepun – the Meitei group – which tribal organizations in Manipur have accused of leading attacks on people belonging to the Kuki community in the state, has said it is a “major blow to come”.

Pramot Singh – supremo of Meitei Leepun Group – said in a chat with The Indian Express that he ‘worships’ Manipur Chief Minister N Biren Singh.
“Yes, I worship the Chief Minister. This is because the language he uses suits our preferences. His goals are our goals as well,” Singh said.

He claimed that his group was not attacking Kuki people but was actually “repelling Kuki attacks”.
Singh has warned of ‘retaliatory action’ by his group against the Kuki tribe, saying “a big blow is coming”.
Additionally, Meitei Leepun chief Pramot Singh said his organization has more than 14,000 members, including “senior citizens, women and children”.

Of them, 1,000, Singh said, are “trained cadres” and some of them are also “trained in arms”.
“Many of our members are ex-servicemen. So, they know how to use weapons,” said Pramot Singh.
