The Communist Party of India - Manipur State Council (CPI-MSC) on Saturday, mentioning the meeting held between Union Home Minister Amit Shah and COCOMI on Friday, said the meeting will pave way to end the prevailing conflict in the state.
In a release, the CPI-MSC, however, said that a resolution can only be reached when words are put into action. It claimed that people of the state have lost their trust in the Indian Government for the last 114 days ever since the conflict broke out in the state, thereby reluctant to trust in any government's assurance.
It pointed out the tally of Myanmar immigrants recorded in the state which is highly suspicious and expressed doubt whether biometric registration will stop the influx of illegal immigrants in the state.
The party along with various civil society organizations have been demanding proper fencing along the porous border for decades, the party said. It asserted that the alleged failure of the authorities concerned to look into the matter triggered the prevailing conflict.
It further pointed out the ongoing blockade along national highway 2 (Imphal-Dimapur) for almost 110 days despite repeated appeals to lift the blockade.
The CPI-MSC maintained that the party does not trust the Home minister’s words nor his assurance. It said it is all talks and no action. CPI-MSC will trust in the Home Minister’s words when the blockade is lifted, it added.
