Shiv Sena Manipur State Unit president M Tombi on Saturday urged the Central government to remove the security advisor of Manipur Kuldiep Singh, while demanding to handover the unified command to Chief Minister N Biren Singh.
Tombi told the media on Saturday at its state party head office located at Babupara, Imphal that the present security advisor of Manipur who is also the unified command, Kuldiep Singh, has failed to maintain the law and order situation in Manipur.
He will go to Delhi to meet central leaders and raise the demand to remove Kuldiep Singh from being the security advisor of Manipur, he said. Shiv Sena strongly condemns the killing of four villagers of Haotak by Kuki militants, and the party demanded to book the culprits involved during the incident at the earliest, he added.
Unfortunately, Chief Minister N Biren Singh, Governor Anusuiya Uikey and security advisor Kuldiep Singh have different statements regarding the border town Moreh crisis in connection with the present unrest of Manipur, he added.

Appointing a security advisor while there is already a chief minister is an insult to the whole people of Manipur, he further said. “The BJP central government should not play such tactics any longer. If the Central government continues to delay solving the present crisis, then State Shiv Sena might boycott the upcoming Lok Sabha election at the party level. Shiv Sena gives priority to safeguarding the territorial integrity and boundary of Manipur not in elections,” he added.
State Shiv Sena was astonished by the contradictory statement of security advisor Kuldiep Singh against the statement of Governor and chief minister on the involvement of foreign militants in the present unrest.
He further questioned why the government is not abrogating the SoO agreement with Kuki militants who are violating all the guidelines, he said.
Although the chief minister of Mizoram is against the international border fencing work with Mizoram and Myanmar, the pending international border fencing of Indo-Myanmar (Manipur) must be completed immediately, said Tombi.
