The meira paibis of Senjam Chirang on Saturday demanded the state government to call a special assembly session to bring normalcy back to Manipur, stressing that people settling in the peripheral areas had been living in constant panic and fear since the outbreak of the turmoil in the state.The meira paibis staged a protest at Senjam Chirang community hall on Saturday.
A Meirapaibi Heikham Amrabati expressed her disappointment over the recent assembly session on August 29 which was adjourned without discussing a single agenda on the present unrest.
She said, even if there were disruptions by the opposition during the recent Parliament session, the proceedings continued. Why was it not here in Manipur, she questioned.
She further appealed to the state government and authority concerned to convene a special session so that the present crisis could be discussed thoroughly in order to bring back normalcy. She said the legal notice against social worker Maheshwor Thounaojam must be withdrawn immediately.
Senjam Chirang is located at the foothills adjacent to Kangpokpi districts and Kuki villages. Since the turmoil started, many villagers have been injured by the constant attacks from the hills.
“Most of the villagers of the area have suspicions of who is providing assistance to the Kuki militants during the crisis. However, the villagers do not have proof and evidence,” she added.
