Sagolband assembly constituency MLA Rajkumar Imo Singh on Tuesday submitted a memorandum to Union Home Minister Amit Shah, appealing for strong legal action against all those people involved in spreading terror in the country.
In his memorandum, he appreciated the Ministry of Home Affairs as Manipur has witnessed few positive steps undertaken by the ministry with the immediate decision to send a CBI team to Manipur to oversee the murder case of the two young students. This led to the arrest of accused people from Churachandpur. It was even more positive to see the arrest of a person from Churachandpur by NIA for pursuing terror and having influence with foreign militant groups from Myanmar, who have been involved in waging war against the Government, by means of financing and supplying arms and ammunition in this conflict, he added.
“The people of Manipur are indeed pleased with few of these proactive measures taken up under your guidance in the Home Ministry. We sincerely hope that maximum punishment will be given as per procedure prescribed by the law and stringent measures will be taken up against all such Insurgent Groups who have violated the Ground Rules and are involved in violence in the State with the support of such foreign militant outfits”, he demanded.
He alleged that It is now a well known fact that foreign terror groups are playing a very big role to create instability and prolong this conflict, which has been going on for the last five months.
It is a way to ensure that there is no peace and harmony in the region and show Manipur and the rest of the country in bad light.
He recalled that there has been a news report recently of the Canada Chapter Head of North American Manipur Tribal Association, Lien Gangte allegedly having links with terror groups in Canada who are trying to destroy the fundamentals of our country. He had given a speech in the Gurudwara whose Chief and Khalistani Terrorist Hardeep Singh Nijjar was shot dead by unknown people. Gangte not only condemned what was happening in Manipur but also sought help from them by using the platform for the Separatist agenda, Imo added.
“I am very positive that Home Ministry must have already started the investigation regarding these links, I therefore request you to kindly bring a logical conclusion to this by initiating strong legal action against all those people involved in spreading terror in our country, and using international platforms to propagate the Separatist agenda with the help of other terror groups. I also urge you to take stringent measures against organisations abroad who are having such links and bringing a bad name to our country”, he mentioned.
He also stated the important issue regarding the detection of Illegal Migrants, which has been initiated by the Home Ministry. He appreciated the extension of the date for the detection of Illegal Migrants up to March 2024. However, there is an apprehension that people entering India through the Mizoram side of Indo Myanmar border will not be properly checked as it was reported in the news that the Mizoram Government has declined to do Biometrics to detect Illegal Migrants from Myanmar, he added.
“This is a very serious issue which could change the whole demography of the region. Thus, I request you to ensure that the Indo-Myanmar border in Mizoram is fully FENCED, which is similarly going to be done in Manipur to help in controlling more influx of such Illegal Migrants across the region. This will become a major stepping stone to protect all the indigenous people in the region and further strengthen the internal security of the country,” he urged.
