AMUCO observes 22nd Foundation Day


IMPHAL, February 12: All Manipur United Club`™s Organization celebrates its 22nd Foundation Day at Kwakeithel Mission Compound today.

In his address, AMUCO president Mani Khuman said AMUCO wants to highlight its future vision for the various communities of Manipur and to discuss the problems, which have persisted for several years. It will develop this vision with the help of intellectuals who can share their valuable insights on the problems to help us solve these problems, it said.

AMUCO and the people of the State can gain a lot from the ideas of the state`™s intellectuals which can be immediately implemented to keep our territorial integrity intact, he added.

AMUCO is planning to undertake various activities amongst the 36 communities of Manipur to instill a sense of integrity and unity among all, he informed, adding AMUCO plans to build a strong sense of unity among the communities by bringing about an emotional integrity and a mindset.

He said AMUCO is also of the opinion that if citizens know their responsibilities then problems can be solved easily, adding the organization was planning to overcome the various hurdles along political and cultural lines.

Stressing that we have to find out the problems of our societies and give priority to them to try to solve them, he said the word `immigrant`™ used by BJP to describe the North Eastern people is unfortunate as the people of the NE states are quite sensitive about such issues but the BJP has inadvertently revealed by using the term that it has always considered the people of the North East as immigrants all along.

In his speech as a special invitee, COHR president Phunindro Konsam said even after the British have left Manipur, oppressive laws implemented by them are still being enforced by the Indian government which has practiced a divide and rule policy among the communities and tortured innocent people under draconian laws.

The Government of India is violating human rights under black laws such as the Arm Forces Special Power Act, and is trying to break the unity between the communities, he added.

So, all the communities should know the hidden policies of the Government of India which is trying to break the territorial integrity of the place by creating animosities between the various communities; our only strength is to stay together by helping one another. As a part of the foundation day celebrations, a two minute silence was observed and floral tributes were paid to late members of AMUCO.

In the foundation day observations, besides the AMUCO president who presided over the function, former presidents of AMUCO such as Ito Tongbram, Jagat Thoudam and R Yangsosong Koireng were also present. AMUCO advisor Kt Rahaman, Irabot Foundation Manipur president Th Iboyaima, former general secretaries of AMUCO such as Moirangthem Khogen and K Khagendra were also among the presidium members.
