Kshetrigao Assembly Constituency MLA Sheikh Noorul Hassan, while highlighting the initiatives taken up by the state government to contain the crisis in Manipur, said that the government is not silent and blaming it will not help end the crisis.
“No government will remain silent over Manipur’s territorial integrity, the government will face challenges”, the MLA said.
The MLA was speaking during a one-day public convention held on Sunday at his residence in Kshetrigao on the theme “Steps to be taken for the ongoing crisis”.
Addressing the gathering, he assured of working together with people of Manipur in any condition for the protection of the state’s integrity.
He said, it’s been five months since the conflict started in the state and nobody is taking the initiative of understanding the core issue being faced by the general public. Any challenges that come over the territorial integrity of the state, be it political or physical, will be faced, the MLA said, adding that it is not a time for misunderstanding each other within a community. We should think about how to face the illegal immigrant (Chin-Kuki) Narco-terrorist issue, he said.
The Manipur government is facing issues irrespective of political affiliation and was under pressure from the union government but is not pressuring the union government to bring a solution, he said.
Now, the general public also knows that the issue of Manipur is not in the state but against the India government. It was clearly mentioned in a NIA statement, he said.
“MLRLR Act is a wrong act, it should be reformed”, the MLA said, adding that population is increasing and land is not expanding and, in such conditions, the state requires uniform land law.
He also appealed to the public to submit the arms and ammunition which were taken for the protection of villages. If they are not submitted, it may lead to a monstrous society in future, the MLA said.
The convention was attended by local clubs, Meira Paibis and youths of Kshetrigao AC.
