Save Manipur from Artificial Humanitarian Crisis

2509

21st May 2010

Dear All,

The people of Manipur of all the districts in the hills and the valley are suffering due to the road blockade for more than a month.

There is shortage of the basic needs to survival – food and other commodities. There is acute shortage of fuel, which impacts in children not being able to go to schools. Let us not deprive people the right to food, and the right to education. Hospitals have run out of oxygen, there is shortage of medicines. One old woman passenger died due to lack of medical attention when buses got stranded in the hills for days. The stock of essential commodities is diminishing day by day in the hills too. The lack of fuel has affected media/ communication/ mobile phone towers since generators cannot even function. Public transport vehicle fares have also gone up.

Therefore, we are appealing to the Central Government and State Government to solve the crisis. The Civil bodies are also requested to bring the matter to an amicable solution.

We also request the organisations who are calling the road blockade to use other means of protest, as it is only the common people of all communities who are suffering.

We also request the different communities to maintain peace and harmony. Leaving aside our political and territorial issues, let’s maintain peace, let’s spread love and brotherhood. Let’s not block the roads in Manipur, let’s not stop the vehicles going to Manipur. Let’s stop the counter blockades. Let’s not indulge in spreading false rumours and hatred. Let’s think about the innocent lots who are suffering in the hills and the valley alike.
