MSAD on Chandel incident and scribe death


IMPHAL, December 24:The Manipur Students` Association, Delhi (MSAD) has condoled the killing of Thangjam Dwijamani alias Nanao (32) s/o (L) Th Babu of Thangmeiband Sinam Leikai, a stringer of Doordarshan Kendra Imphal due to police firing while controlling a mob at Sinam Leikai on 23rd December 2012. A press relase from MSAD accused the State, instead of making adequate security arrangement for safe passage of peoples stranded in Imphal and other parts of Manipur had resorted to killing of civilians adding fuel to the tension and washed off its responsibility to play an effective role in dealing with the demand for justice. Joining the chorus of condemnation over the Chandel incident, MSAD stated that no matter what the pretext, context and agenda might be; the criminal activity of Livingstone cannot be justified. It further  appealed to the NSCN-IM not to delay or derail the punitive action against Livingstone on the pretext of the prevailing turmoil in the state.The statement also expressed caution to the public regarding their further course of actions and appealed for people to refrain from any any communal assertions.
