Manipur's Khundrakpam assembly constituency MLA Th Lokeshwor on Tuesday broke his silence on the ongoing crisis in Manipur and drew the state government's attention for restoring normalcy in the bordering area of the constituency and Saikul by flushing out the militants under SoO from the area by deploying sufficient security forces.
Speaking to the media at his residence in Sagolmang, Imphal East, he alleged that the ongoing crisis is the work of instigation by some vested interest groups, where innocent civilians have become victims.
Lokeshwor further alleged that the involvement of some militants groups under SoO had resulted in the complete burning down of four villages (Ekou, Sadu Yenguman, Litanpokpi and Dolaithabi) under his constituency, leaving many homeless in relief camp.
The MLA alleged that there are reports of security personnel remaining a silent spectator when the militants under SoO were attacking the civilians.
If the security forces do not intervene in the intimidation currently carried out by the militants at the earliest possible, there is an apprehension that the civilians might carry out a fierce action as a consequence, he cautioned.
Pointing out that the crisis had also resulted in scarcity of food items to the public, he drew the attention of the CAFPD minister and officials to ensure that the citizens do not face shortages of ration and another war on scarcity of food does not arise.
Lauding the civil bodies who had set up relief camps in Khundrakpam AC and those who have donated essential items to the camps, the MLA announced that his MLA office is ready to provide all possible assistance to facilitate those who are in need.
"Anybody can directly contact me personally at mobile no. 8974048307 or his assistance's mobile no. 7005338647, 6009680830 and 9233762487," he added.
Meanwhile, the Chingmeirong Development Organisation and Chingmeirong Youth Welfare Association distributed relief items, including clothes, senitary items, food and medical items to different relief camps opened in Khundrakpam AC. The relief items were donated by the people of Chingmeirong Mamang Leikai during a donation camp organised by the two bodies.
The Manipur Welfare Society of Arunachal Pradesh had also distributed relief items to the camp opened at the residence of the MLA at Sagolmang.
