The Indigenous Tribal Leaders Forum (ITLF) has advised all concerned government departments in the district against any participation in the Free Movement Regime (FMR) activities by the government.

Addressing a press conference at its office located at Hiangtam Lamka in the district on Thursday, ITLF spokesman Ginza Vualzong said that the forum had written to the Union Home Minister on January 24, 2023 pleading him to reverse the decision to remove FMR as the people of Arunachal Pradesh, Nagaland and Mizoram are against it.

However, in spite of this the government is moving forward with the removal of FMR, Vualzong said and added that ITLF strongly advises against any participation in FMR activity by concerned government departments. He warned that those who go against the advice will be held accountable for any untoward incidents.

He also informed that a rally will be held on June 24, the day the first session of Lok Sabha will be held, to expedite their political solution, which is UT under Art 239A for the Kuki-Zo people. He added that the ITLF will hold a non-violence demonstration on the same day simultaneously at Pherzawl, Kanggui, Tengnoupal, etc.

There will be a total shutdown of all activities wherever the rally is held, he added.

The ITLF spokesman also said that they oppose the ADC Election by the state government, terming it as an intention to create division among the people and to show to the world that normally is prevailing here.

“We request the Union Home Ministry to set up a buffer zone at Jiribam at the earliest as violence against the Kuki-Zo people in the area is continuing and the tribals are not safe,” Vualzong said.
