The Co-ordinating Committee of 27 Assembly Constituencies on Tuesday said that Chief Minister N Biren Singh has assured that there will be no mass burial of slain Kukis at Torbung Bangla and also appealed to the people of the state not to be apprehensive of the situation.
The committee held a meeting with CM Biren during which the CM stated the same in response to a question raised by the committee on the state government’s stand regarding the proposed mass burial of slain kukis at Torbung Bangla. The chief minister also urged the public not to give any obstructions to the security personnel during their duty to prevent the proposed burial, the committee stated in a press release.
During the meet, the committee enquired about the reason for the failure to convene an emergency Manipur State Assembly session during the ongoing monsoon parliament session, it said. In response, the Chief Minister said that there is a high chance of MLA absenteeism in the session due to the prevailing issue in the State, hence the Assembly session could not be called, it stated.
The committee also asked if there were any hidden conspiracies between the central government and the Kuki militants to the chief minister, in which the latter assured that there is no such conspiracy.
It welcomed the commitment of the chief minister and further appealed to the general public to extend their support to the chief minister’s stand. However, the committee further warned of intense agitations against the State government should the mass burial be ever carried out, it mentioned.
The committee will launch protest demonstrations on Wednesday demanding to convene an emergency State Assembly session and urged the public to cease work and extend their solidarity to the protest, it added.
