Tribal student bodies condemn communal act by Meetei Leepun


Senapati: The apex tribal student bodies including the All Tribal Students’ Union, Manipur (ATSUM), All Naga Students Association, Manipur (ANSAM) and Kuki Students Organisation-General Headquarters (KSO-GHQ) condemned the unwarranted locking of ATSUM office situated in Imphal near Adimjati on Thursday by Meetei Leepun.

Addressing media persons, AC Thotso, general secretary, ANSAM called the unwarranted locking of ATSUM office by Meetei Leepun is very unfortunate. The tribals consider the act as a direct challenge to the tribals of Manipur. While terming their movement as not against any community, the student leader asserted that they are demanding for their constitutional rights that has been enshrined in the Indian Constitution.

While stating it is shocked to learn such communal act, the tribal student bodies perceived that it must have been the handiwork of the state government as such act reflects the true colour of the present state government, repressing and suppressing the tribals populace in the guise of “Chingmee, tammee amattani.”
