IMPHAL, Dec 21: The AMCO (All Manipur Christian Organisation) has expressed its deepest concern over the gruesome killing of the care taker of PHED, Soram Ibomcha and his son Yaipu by an armed group in connection with monetary demand.
A press release of the organization has informed that such practice of abduction and killing of innocent people must be condemned by one and all. It is a crime against God and the people.
It has further mentioned that AMCO has been trying to eradicate injustice and corruption and cultivate love and concern among the people of Manipur. While SHDDC and the UNC imposed prolonged economic blockade and counter blockade, the AMCO members went to meet them and had prayer with them and earnestly requested them to relax the blockade on humanitarian ground. In the previous years too when the NSF of Ngaland banned vehicles bearing Manipur regd numbers to enter Nagaland, the AMCO went to Kohima several times and requested them to lift the ban, it added.
As the Christmas celebration is approaching many of our Manipuri students and workers who stay outside the state are coming home and we are sure they will be stranded on the way. At the same time many poor families of the hill and valley are coming for Christmas shopping during these coming days. The AMCO therefore fervently request the KCP (MC) to withdraw the general strike Dec.21 – 24 in public interest, it added.
