The Committee on Tribal Unity (CoTU), Sadar Hills on Wednesday questioned the rationality behind the visit of the three-member panel from the Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA) and their meeting with the Arambai Tenggol, while demanding the Government of India to declare Arambai Tenggol as an outlawed organisation.
The committee considers the MHA visit a one-sided appeasement policy, and the team was stopping short of meeting the minority Kuki-Zo community, it alleged, stating that CoTU strongly opposes the appeasement policy of the Central government.
The committee also condemned the alleged “prescriptive tactics by providing succour to Chief Minister N Biren Singh.”
Drawing attention of the Central government, the committee stated that lasting peace and restoration of normalcy in the state could only be achieved only if the Government of India first ban the Arambai Tenggol while imposing AFSPA within the 19 Police Stations in the valley, and to ultimately recognise the separation between the Kuki-Zo and the Meiteis.
