Imphal, July 27: Forum for Our Journey (FFOJ) has expressed its displeasure over the killing of late M Ngalangzar, former Vice Chairman of Ukhrul ADC and member of Ukhrul ADC by unidentified gunmen at Finch Corner on July 12.
The Forum expressed its displeasure over the killing of the former ADC vice-chairman decision after a meeting on July 27 unanimously resolved to do so.
The Forum further appealed the State government and especially the district administration of Ukhrul for immediate revocation of Section 144 CrPC imposed in and around Ukhrul Headquarters and withdrawal of Police Commandos and IRBs from Ukhrul district as normalcy has returned in the district.
The press released further said that the continued deployment of Police Commandos and IRBs in the town only create fear psychosis and panic among the students, men and women.
The Forum cautions that continued militarisation of Ukhrul headquarters by deploying a large number of Manipur State security forces does not help in any way in keeping the people calm and the environment normal for which the Ukhrul DC should take immediate steps to revoke Section 144 CrPC.
Prolong deployment of Police Commandos and IRBs may simply cause unprovoked incidents of unpeaceful and disturbing situation for the people as a whole.
It also urges the Government of Manipur and the people to uphold peace and tranquillity across length and breadth of the lands, FFOJ convenor Chonmi Ranleng said in a signed press statement.
