CHANDEL, January 18: The Anal Naga Tangpi (ANTA), an apex body of the Anal Naga Tribe along with several other Anal societies consisting of Anal Sinnu Ruwl, Anallon Chiefs’ Association and Anal Lenruwl Tangpi has raised strong objection against the inclusion of the alleged assault of Manipuri film actor Momoko by Livingstone Anal, in the college syllabus under Manipur University.
The said organisations have also come out strongly to condemn and oppose the decision of the state government, District Administration Chandel, Ministry of Industries and Haolenphai villager Lalkholun Haokip’s bid to encroach upon land for the construction of a satellite town within the customary land of Thangbung Mino near Moreh.
President of ANTA Wng Kohring Victor in a press conference held at Panchai said, the Anal civil societies are against the inclusion or prescription of ‘Indian Government and Politics’, a book authored by Professor Naorem Rabie Singh as a Political Science syllabus for BA III year, Political Science under Manipur University, wherein the unfortunate December 18, 2012 incident of the alleged assault of Momoko by Livingstone Anal is included.
In this regard, the Anal leader urged the state government to take befitting action against the author, alleging the author of misusing constitutional rights and duties.
The president in his statement hit back at the state Education department for the prescription of such unfortunate incident in the syallabus of the highest institution of learning, ie, Manipur University.
He opined that the author should be punished for indirectly insulting the people of Manipur.
He went on to say that a sit in protest against the land encroachment of Thangbung Mino and author of the book Naorem Rabie Singh will be held on January 22.
Chief of Thangbung Minou Ts Thulhring Anal while briefing media raised objection against Lalkholun Haokip and accused him of maintaining false and fake documents.
He said that donating a land measuring about 3000 acre to the govt. for construction of a satellite town, which does not belong to him at all is a mischievous deed.
In this regard, the chief prayed the Almighty God and the God of Meitei Leiningthou Wangbarel, who stood by the side of the right land owner, Thangbung Mino since time immemorial to show truth to all to see.
The chief in his statement further appealed to the DC Chandel, Lalkholun Haokip, ADC Moreh and the state machineries to deliver justice to all.
