Manipuris yearning for the insurgency to endNovember 14th, 2007 - 8:27 am ICT by admin
Extortion, killings and kidnappings affect normal life in the State. The youth want to explore the opportunities that the globalised world has to offer them.
“It’s very hard for us to carry on our day-to-day life. We can’t go to college regularly or do anything else because there are anti-social elements, which always give us a fear, even of our life,” said Z V Ngayan, a student.
The parallel government run by militant groups in the State is a major area of concern for the security forces and the locals. These groups extort money or levy ‘taxes’ on people, government officials and businessmen.
L T Rangsanamei, a student, said: “Manipur has multi-government because many armed organisations are running a parallel government. In this condition the Manipur government is unworkable and inefficient.”
Similarly other sections of the society are complaining against the insurgency.
Professionals and government servants remain on an edge due to extortion demands and harassment by the rebel groups.
They want the government to act fast and tough against the insurgents.
W Robindro Singh, a government employee, said: “Under these circumstances, I don’t feel there can be any progress. On the contrary we are moving backward. Peace is a pre-requisite for the progress.”
Manipuris feel that the government should hold talks with the insurgents to find a solution to the problem.
T H Manitombi Devi, a shopkeeper, said: “The government should try and hold talks with the insurgents to find a solution to the problem. I feel in this way all will be happy.”
Manipuris wish to be part of the India’s march to progress and that is possible only when peace and harmony prevails in the State. (ANI)
