The Lamyanba Irawat Memorial Integrated Trust (LIMIT) on Wednesday has issued an ultimatum to the Manipur government, demanding to invite Prime Minister Narendra Modi in Manipur to address the ongoing crisis.
The deadline set by LIMIT is February 15, and failure to comply will lead to volunteers, supported by the people of Manipur, departing for Delhi the following day to launch various forms of protests at the national capital, cautioned LIMIT.
Speaking at a press conference held at the Manipur Press Club in Imphal, LIMIT’s president, Malem Thongam, expressed deep concern and lamented the seeming neglect of the situation by both the central and state governments while focusing on preparations for the upcoming Lok Sabha election as Manipur grapple with unrest for the past nine months.
Condemning the government’s negligence in restoring normalcy in what is supposed to be a democratic country, she emphasized that it is time for the people to teach the government a lesson for its prolonged inaction.
In addition to the ultimatum, Thongam called for support from the Meetei community residing in Delhi if the government fails to comply.
Furthermore, she urged unification and united efforts among all Meetei communities to face the ongoing aggression by narco-terrorists and stressed the need for both moral and physical support for those on the frontline defending against aggression by the Kuki community.
