Yumkhaibam Shyam Khuman, the General Secretary of the Committee, has expressed concern about the installation of the cross on the sacred Thangjing shrine of the Meitei Community.

Speaking to the media at Manipur Press Club on Wednesday, he said the act allegedly carried out by individuals from the Kuki community, is seen as a provocation to the Meitei community and is considered a violation of an agreement signed between the Kuki Students’ Organization (KSO) and the Committee on Protection & Preservation of the Historical Rights of Koubru and Thanging Hill Ranges on May 23, 2022. This agreement was reportedly signed in the presence of the then Manipur Director General of Police (DGP), P Doungel.
