IMPHAL | Oct 6

Maoist Communist Party said that the preparation to start the week-long mega protest in order to save the indigenous people from November 11 to 18 is in full swing. 

Khurai Ahongpung and Mongba Hanba sites will be given back to the people as a part of the week long mega protest, said a release signed by coordinator, standing committee, Kyonghan Mangang.

The organisation does not get involved in matters related to faith, it said. However, the decisions taken by the organisation are against domination, it added. The mentioned sites have been kept under domination by non-locals for generations, it continued adding the decision was made against it.

The agitations will begin from 6 pm of November 11 in which all the streets, lanes and roadways will be blocked by the public, it continued. If the government does not take up any step to save the indigenous people by the midnight of November 16, then the public will storm the chief minister office, Manipur legislative Assembly, governor office and Manipur police head quarter on the early morning of November 17 and achieve its goal of saving the indigenous people, it said.  

The party has appealed to the people from Khurai area and those who are willing to save Mongba hanba site to be prepared for the mega protest, it further said.

On the other hand, the party welcomes the statement by United NGO Mission Manipur that they are not against the movement, it said. However, the claim made by the convenors of UNMM that the party has not tried to contact any of them is a blatant lie at the face of Manipuris, it said.

The organisation had tried multiple times to contact the leader of UNMM, U. Nobokeshor on his mobile that ends with the digits, 2626, it said adding several efforts were also made to contact the leader of Women Action for Development.

Therefore, it would be wiser for Nobikeshor and WAD to accept their mistakes to UNMM and the people of Manipur within the given time, it said. Unnecessary provocations are not desired by the party, it said adding if they do not stop speaking lies and continue denying their mistakes, the organisation will not take responsibility for the outcome.
