The Global Manipur Federation (GMF) on Thursday condemned the assault and terror attack on State forces by Kuki militants and Myanmar militants at Moreh on Wednesday killing two personnel and injuring six others.
GMF, in a release, asserted that the lack of assistance to the state forces facing assault raises serious concerns about those in authority. It questioned the commitment of Central security forces under the Government of India and demanded clarification on their alleged inaction against threats.
It maintained that the state government should be given full authority to perform its duty within its mandate if the Centre is unable to control the terror attacks on the state security forces. It reminded that any armed aggression on Indian soil, internal or external, is punishable under the Constitution of India.
It highlighted the unabated attacks by Kuki Narco-terrorists on civilians including the recent Haotak massacre and stressed the urgent need for comprehensive action against narco-terrorism so as to ensure the safety of state forces and civilians. It urged leaders to engage with progressive luminaries to address the escalating violence in Manipur.
It further urged for immediate and decisive action against the terror attack at Moreh and asserted that collaborative efforts are needed to stop organized armed aggression, emphasizing the federal constitutional mandates.
GMF also expressed heartfelt condolences on the demise of IRB personnel W Somorjit and Havildar T Sieleshwor and further declared solidarity with the affected communities, it said.
