The Coordinating Committee on Manipur Integrity (COCOMI) on Wednesday alleged that the prevailing crisis in the state erupted owing to the authorities’ negligence and failure to take timely actions. It appealed to the government for withdrawal of the SoO agreement with Kuki militants.
A release issued by COCOMI media coordinator Somorendro Thokchom alleged that the prevailing crisis in the state had occurred due to the authorities’ failure to timely identify and control the influx of non-indigenous people in the state.
The political leaders’ negligence of duties and failure to take timely actions have led to the prevailing crisis in the state, it claimed.
It urged the leaders of the state to take immediate action to devise a permanent solution and resolve the issue for the sake of the future generations. It appealed to the authorities to stop the activities of the SoO militants and to withdraw the SoO agreement of the Kuki militants.
“COCOMI urged the indigenous tribe of the state including Khongsai, Hmar and Paite etc. to express their concerns while there is still time, as the majority communities of the state have their doors open for the indigenous communities. Don’t fall prey to the external influences of the vested interests who are threatening the territorial integrity of the state,” it added.
