The Kabui Mothers’ Association (KAMA), Manipur, has called upon all to work towards the restoration of peace in strife-torn Manipur.
According to Ranjita Golmei, general secretary, KAMA, the unfortunate violence in Manipur that started on May 3 was a result of a misunderstanding between two communities.
“The situation has intensified to a large extent because of the misunderstandings. All the communities in the state have been living together peacefully and lovingly in Manipur since time immemorial, irrespective of whether we are from Naga, Meitei, Pangal, Kabui, Kuki, or other communities,” she said while speaking to DIPR.
“As a general secretary of KAMA, I would like to appeal to the Prime Minister and Home Minister at the Centre to bring back normalcy in the state as soon as possible. Both the central government and the state government should look into the present condition of the displaced people as soon as possible, as well as how long the displaced people will live in the relief centres. Testing the patience of the affected people is not a good thing. Moreover, blockades on the national highways have also created a problem for all due to the non-availability and price rise of essential items.”
She, as a representative of the association, appealed to the national media not to term the Manipur issue as one between Christians and non-Christians.
"It is a misunderstanding between two communities, and this happens sometimes in every part of the world, and I would like to appeal to the Government of India and all the citizens to intervene as soon as possible to bring an amicable solution to bring peace in the state," she added.
