Taking part in the sit-in protest, VDF Guardian Association Thoubal district president Khundrakpam Mema Devi expressed that they are protesting to save the lives of their sons who are employed as VDF personnel. She said that all the guardians of VDFs are ready to fight for their sons’ legitimate rights and demands. 

Mema alleged the Manipur government of forgetting the roles of VDF personnel in bringing peace and normalcy in the state. 

“How one can manage a family with a meagre amount of Rs 8,500 when the prices of all commodities are skyrocketing?” she asked.
