KCP (PWG) imposes “public curfew” on I-Day

13 August 2017

IMPHAL | Aug 12

Kangleipak Communist Party (People’s War Group) has called for 12 hours public curfew on August 15, starting from 6 am to 6 pm in the entire Kangliepak region, denouncing the Indian Independence Day celebrations.   

Calling August 15 as the 71st transfer of colonial hegemonic day of neo-imperialist India, KCP-People’s War Group has appealed not to celebrate the day in any manner, said a release signed by secretary, central media coordinator, KCP People’s War Group, Lenin Meitei. However, Fire service, water supply, ritual service, electricity, print and electronic media may resume their normal duties, it said.

Indians did not get their independence on August 15, 1947; it said adding it would be correct to define it as the transfer of colonial hegemony from the colonial system of British India to the neo- colonial system of a neo-imperialist India. Kangliepak never existed under the British India as its colonial state, it further said. There was no annexation either as it was kept under the British Crown as a protectorate province, it continued adding history provides the evidence that the origins and India and kangliepak are entirely different.

After British India gave Kangliepak its independence on August 14, 1947, the sovereign nation started its own assembly on October 18, 1948 by implementing Adult Franchise for the first time at South East Asia, it further continued adding unfortunately, Maharaj Bodhachandra was forced to sign the merger agreement after getting mental torture and its independence was robbed.

KCP-People’s War Group is denouncing the day by imposing the public curfew as a part boycotting and total shut down of all the celebrations related with Neo-imperialist India, it added.
