IMPHAL | Nov 13

The GPRN office of the central administrative officer (CAO), Khurmi Region, condemning today’s bomb attack said “it is as a challenge to the Naga people movement and its logical conclusion as a nation”.

A statement issued by K. Besui, caretaker CAO, Khurmi Region, CPRN, further said the Khurmi region, despite its complexity and regardless of religion, caste and tribes, people live harmoniously and peacefully for years. And, region authorities and all law enforcing agencies are striving hard keeping the law and order intact with the maximum co-operation of the people.

With today’s attack, it has been demonstrated that the sleepless adversaries of Nagas are terrorizing the land and people of Khurmi, it said adding that such ‘sinister design and devilish’ act of attacking Indian armed forces at the heart of district headquarter is nothing but attacking peaceful co-existence and instigating another armed conflict between India and Naga forces.

“The political nature of attacking Indian armed forces at the populated areas of Nagas is nothing but challenging Naga peoples’ movement”, it contended. 

It urged all like-minded citizens to condemn and isolate the perpetrator in the strongest terms before sharing its grief with the bereaved family of the jawans.
