Drawing the attention of the Government of India to the demand of separate administration, Kuki-Zo womenfolk in Kangpokpi district launched an indefinite sit-in-protest at Gamgiphai.
Hundreds of women across the district gathered at Gamgiphai on Sunday afternoon and launched the sit-in-protest under the leadership of CoTU.
Speaking on behalf of the gathering a woman said, the demand for a separate administration is very much legitimate and it is never against the Constitution of India nor the Government of India.
“Our demand is separation from the biased Government of Manipur and all we want is separation from the oppression and subjugation of the Manipur government,” she added.
She continued that having faith in the Government of India they lifted the economic blockade along the National Highways and also decided to claim the dead bodies of the near and dear ones lying in the morgue.
Despite all this, the Government of India has yet to turn its ears to their grievances which compels us to launch this protest, she added.
She also said that agencies such as the CBI and NIA have started investigations into different cases, so, we want equal treatment and justice.
“The investigations of the CBI and NIA should not be biased and free of nepotism”, she added.
