Rongmei Naga People’s Org Expresses Deep Concern Over Ethnic Violence in Jiribam, Appeals for Peace


Newmai News Network Imphal: The Rongmei Naga People’s Organisation (RNPO) – Assam, Manipur, Nagaland, and elsewhere – said it is deeply concerned about the “flare-up of communal tension and ethnic violence” between the Kuki-Zo tribal groups and the Meitei community in the Jiribam areas of Manipur.

In a statement issued today, the RNPO said that in this flare-up, property worth crores of rupees has been burned down and destroyed on both sides. Additionally, the lives of innocent citizens of both communities have been affected. “The RNPO, on behalf of the entire Rongmei community, would like to appeal to the leaders, including civil society organizations and the general public of both communities, to extend an olive branch in order to save the innocent general public of both sides and their valuable property (assets).” The RNPO also appealed to “armed outfits and militant groups” of both communities to shun violence and engage in people-to-people dialogue to restore normalcy in the strife-torn state of Manipur as soon as possible in the larger public interest.
