The Coordinating Committee on Manipur Integrity (COCOMI) on Wednesday announced that the committee would discontinue the social boycott placed on the Manipur government starting Thursday.
COCOMI maintained that the committee had unanimously concluded on the resolution after assessing the developments of the ongoing conflict.
It may be mentioned that COCOMI imposed the social boycott of the state government on August 6, 2023.
Speaking to the media at COCOMI office, COCOMI convenor Jeetendra Ningomba stated that the move to lift the boycott came after thorough deliberation of resolutions taken in several conventions.
“The resolution to lift the boycott was taken in several meetings held in various locations. Renowned intellect and social thinkers of the state who took part in these meetings all voiced their affirmation to lift COCOMI’s boycott of the state government,” he said.
He further highlighted that the state government had invited COCOMI for a meeting to discuss key issues in connection with the crisis.
“The government had extended the invitation to discuss the developments in the National Register of Citizens (NRC), resettlement of displaced and affected persons and the ongoing conflict in the state,” he said.
He maintained that the committee had decided to lift the boycott in light of the people’s opinion and the development of the crisis.
He further appealed to all the people of Manipur to remain steadfast and extend their coordination in resolving the crisis.
