    IMPHAL April 22: Revolutionary People’s Front (RPF) in a press statement by the outfit’s publicity secretary T Leishemba  appeals to the public to attend the Khongjom Day memorial ceremony .
    It states that the Manipuris waged a fierce battle against the powerful British and the exemplary courage of our fore fathers should be respected and duplicated so as to throw off the colonial yoke. The state is suffering numerous atrocities carried out by the armed security personnel against the public in the name of counter insurgency, but the demand for independence is a democratic stance, which should be respected. The Khongojm war is a testament to the fact that Manipuris want liberty.
    In order to achieve freedom, the need for unity is the need of the hour and should be stressed by all concerned, the release said.
