Kukis, during a sit protest held at Kangpokpi on Monday, sought the immediate intervention of the Centre Government to address their grievances following the present Manipur crisis.
Thousands of the Kukis, mostly women, congregated at Brig M Thomas ground and held a sit-in protest demanding the Centre Government’s intervention over the Kuki's grievances.
The protestors held banners and placards which read, "No forceful peace", "Don't bulldoze public sentiment", "Declare Arambai Tengol and Meitei Leepun as an outlaw organizations", etc.
Internally displaced persons staying in relief camps at Kangpokpi joined the sit-in protest organized by the Committee on Tribals Unity (COTU), Sadar Hills.
Janghaolun Haokip, Convenor of Media Cell of COTU questioned why the Central government was still silent.
He wondered why the Central government was still not removing the chief minister of Manipur even after he admitted his government’s failure over the present Manipur crisis. He further urged the Centre to initiate legal action against the Chief Minister of Manipur for terming the Kukis as illegal immigrants and foreigners.
Meanwhile, an internally displaced person sheltered in a relief camp accused the CM for all the violence and killing in the state, saying, "he has failed to protect his people".
