Manipur clash, meitei group thanked Mizoram for safety

Aizawl May 5, 2023 : 

The All Mizoram Manipuri Association (AMMA) has expressed their gratitude towards the Mizoram government and the people of Mizoram for their efforts to protect Manipuris residing in Mizoram amidst the ongoing violence in Manipur. In a press release, the AMMA extended their heartfelt thanks to the Chief Minister of Mizoram, the Commissioner of Home, the Government of Mizoram, and all members of society in Mizoram for their support and assistance in ensuring the safety and well-being of Manipuris living in Mizoram.

“As members of the AMMA, we were deeply concerned about the ongoing violence in Manipur, and we are grateful for the necessary measures taken by the Mizoram government to ensure the safety and well-being of Manipuris living in Mizoram. Thanks to these arrangements, all Manipuris in Mizoram are currently living peacefully. Once again, we extend our sincere gratitude to the Chief Minister of Mizoram, the Commissioner of Home, the Government of Mizoram, and all members of society in Mizoram for their support and assistance during this challenging time. We hope that their efforts will continue to help promote peace and harmony among all communities in the region,” a letter issued by the Association said.

Earlier, Mizoram Chief Minister Zoramthanga has called on his Manipur counterpart N Biren Singh to take decisive action to end the ongoing violence in Manipur. In an official letter to Singh, Zoramthanga urged him to exercise strong leadership and reach out to all parties involved to bring an end to the senseless violence that has made national headlines and shattered the peace in the northeastern region.  Zoramthanga expressed his concern over the recent events in Manipur and assured Singh of his government's highest cooperation and support towards achieving peace and reconciliation in the state. He emphasized the need for constructive dialogue and cooperation between the two states to resolve any ongoing conflicts.

The ongoing violence in Manipur, between the Meiteis and various other groups, has become a cause of concern not only for the people of the state but also for the neighbouring state governments. Thousands of citizens from neighbouring states are still stranded in the violence-torn capital city of Imphal, living in squalid conditions with little access to proper facilities, food, and water. Most of them have fled from different parts of Imphal into makeshift camps, including army establishments, for safety as tensions and violence continue to escalate in the city. It is worth mentioning that, as of this reporting, the stranded Mizoram students in Imphal are yet to be evacuated. 

The government of Mizoram announced on Saturday that it is taking several measures to aid those stranded in Imphal, including arranging airlifts for Mizos and others. The government of Meghalaya has also begun evacuating its citizens from the war-torn state. For those living in camps around Manipur, it has been reported that they are being slowly transported to safer areas within Manipur. However, there was a brief scuffle in Churachandpur when residents protested against an escort that was allegedly arranged for stranded Meitei community members being protected by Kuki women. The townspeople demanded that their people stranded in Imphal should also be given secure passage and an escort in exchange. During the ensuing scuffle, one person was reported to have died, but the situation is currently calm as of the time of this report. It is becoming increasingly challenging to report on Manipur due to the frequent blackouts, poor mobile connectivity, and the shutdown of broadband and mobile internet, making it difficult to confirm certain claims and reports.
