The Communist Party of India Manipur State Council (CPI-MSC) on Wednesday lashed out at the Central government, alleging that it green-lighted Kuki militant’s attack against the Meiteis, all the while fervently urging to intervene and end the terror attacks carried out by the Kuki militants.
CPI-MSC, in a release, lamented over the alleged failure of the law enforcing departments to execute timely actions to thwart the Kuki militant’s attack, adding that their lack of preparation caused Tuesday’s incident. The public has been aware of possible attacks by Kuki militant groups in November, adding that rumours on the same had been widely circulated on social media, it stated.
It suspected that Tuesday’s attacks were a diversion to draw state security forces away from the areas where the militants had planned to launch the attacks. It claimed that the same is a ploy hatched by the militants to freely smuggle arms and drugs via Moreh, with Moreh already being a bridge for illegal Kuki immigrants to enter the state.
It demanded the centre take immediate necessary actions to control the Kuki militants. It further mentioned the missing case of two Meitei youths namely Maibam Avinash and Ningthoujam Anthony from Akham Awang Leikai.
It expressed discontentment over the failure of the authorities concerned to trace the whereabouts of the boys, who had been missing since Sunday till date and appealed to expedite actions. It added that CPI-MSC leaders including the party’s advocate visited the distressed families of the two boys and shared their pain.
