Mount Koubru is for indigenous people and not for immigrants, said Federation of Haomee Youth Wing general secretary Nameirakpam Mapari Meitei in Imphal Saturday.   

"Mount Koubru is for indigenous people and not for immigrants; the immigrants who are inhabiting in and around the mountain area should leave immediately," said Nameirakpam while speaking to media persons on the sideline of a sit-in-protest held near Tangkhul Baptist Church, Chingmeirong, Imphal.

The federation leader also said that no immigrants can settle at Mount Koubru as the mountain belongs to the indigenous people of Manipur.
