IMPHAL, Sept 9: A delegation of Naga People’s Front of Manipur called on the Union Home Minister, Rajnath Singh today at his office in Delhi.
The delegation submitted a memorandum to the Home Minister highlighting the situation of Manipur under the Congress led government.
While interacting over the phone with this IFP reporter, Honreikhui Kashung general secretary of NPF Manipur State unit said that the memorandum consisted several point to expedite the Indo-Naga peace talk and bring a solution which will be acceptable to both the parties. So that it may bring permanent peace in the Northeast region, he said.
The second point consists of immediate intervention of the Central government into the prevailing situation of chaos in the State.
He further said that yesterday the team has met Kiran Rajiju, Union Home Minister of State, and they expect to meet the Prime Minister Narendra Modi tomorrow.
He said that the Home Minister and the Union Home Minister for State listened carefully to their submission.
They highlighted that common people of Manipur are suffering and facing repression from the State forces. Conflict between communities, frequent bandhs and blockades, and disparity in development in the State are all due to the negligence of the leadership of the present government, it said.
He further said that the whole development process in the State has been stalled due to financial mismanagement by the present government. The Article 371(c) of the Indian Constitution has been thoroughly distorted by the Sate Govt all the years, thereby leaving the tribal in the State in a precarious situation.
He continued that democratic appeals from the public for removal of CrPC had fallen on deaf ears of the State Government. Instead of listening to the voice of the people, the Government suppressed the democratic rights of the people with guns by killing two innocent persons and injuring many others, he added.
