AMSU cautions of more intense agitation
IMPHAL | Sept 13 : All Manipur Students’ Union (AMSU) while condemning the assault and extortion of its members at Nungba on September 3 by self-declared NSCN-IM cadres, said that the students’ union will launch more intense agitation as no positive steps has been taken by the state government till date.
The students’ union demanded the state and central government to seize the culprits and also to close designated camps of National Socialist Council of Nagalim-Isak and Muivah (NSCN-IM) in the state.
As part of their demonstration, AMSU had imposed 100 hours blockade in National Highway-37 connecting state capital to Jiribam from the midnight of September 8 till September 12.
Vice-president of AMSU, Peter Laishram said in a press conference held today at its office that it will now launch more intense agitation both in the hills and the valley.
He said that the on-going peace talk between the government of India and NSCN-IM has led to open extortion and harassment of passengers by members of NSCN-IM even leading to genocide. “This open taxation by an underground group makes people question whether the state government is going hand in hand with the extortionist,” said Peter.
The state government should translate their assurance into action by apprehending the culprits and confiscating the designated camps of NSCN-IM at the soonest, failing which the students’ body will launch the agitation.
Peter also informed that the state government will be held responsible if any inconveniences are caused in the said agitation.
It can be noted that after the incident, the state government assured that attempts were made to arrest the culprits involved by sending personnel of 57 Mountain Division and police commandos but till date no arrest has been made.
Meanwhile NSCN-IM had also, in a statement, denied its involvement in the incident.
On September 7, AMSU members also burnt effigies of Union home minister, Rajnath Singh, chief minister, Nongthombam Biren Singh and NSCN-IM leader, Muivah.
