United Meitei-Pangal Committee (UMPC), Manipur on Sunday made a strong appeal to the Meitei-Pangal community to abstain from making or posting sensitive comments that may cause more turmoil in the state.
Speaking to the media at Manipur Press Club, UMPC spokesperson Raees Ahmed expressed his disappointment and lamented the inability of the powerful mechanisms of Indian forces and other diplomatic structures in bringing a reconciliation to the Manipur crisis.
He raised serious concerns about occurrence of unwanted incidents that may spread the unrest to other communities in the state. The committee strongly condemns these incidents and urges to stop such acts that may cause another turmoil, he said.
To spread awareness to the people on the need to prevent the spark of another unrest, awareness programmes are being conducted in various parts of Muslim community, he said.
He also informed that a memorandum has been submitted to the governor of Manipur, seeking immediate intervention to bring peace and tranquility at the earliest.
In the memorandum, the committee stated for immediate intervention so that the extraordinary situation confronting in the state can be redressed at the earliest.
It has been more than 97 days the state witnessed a complete breakdown of law and order, as responsible and accountable citizens, the Meitei-Pangals have been trying their best efforts to heal the situation, but due to extreme devastation and hardship faced by people the genuine efforts from our ends might not be fruitful, he said.
He said the governor, through the memorandum, has been requested to establish peace, tranquility and harmony in the state without any further delay.
