The Federation of Civil Society Organisations (FOCS) on Friday welcomed the people’s call for unity and collaboration among various civil society organisations of the state and asserted that it is the utmost duty of every civil society organisation to work in the interest of the people and not for leadership tussle.
FOCS, in a release, reaffirmed its commitment to protect and safeguard the state’s integrity and said that it will continue to fight alongside the people in the war.
It maintained that passing judgments and criticizing one another not be of any help in such a critical juncture, but instead all should join efforts to steer the state towards victory.
It further urged all the political leaders, ministers, and MLAs to set aside political and ideological differences and unite to end the ongoing crisis. It asserted that their decisions and actions today will reflect on the election.
It is high time to carve a political solution for resolving the prevailing conflict, saving the state’s integrity, and protecting the people, FOCS said.
It also endorsed Thawai Mirel Women Wing’s call for uniting all the CSOs during its meeting at Iboyaima Shumang Leela Shanglen on September 7.
FOCS also confirmed that it does not support the public curfew imposed by TADKAL on September 8 and 9.
