GMPC blames state and Centre

IMPHAL | Jan 10

The Goodwill Mission for Peaceful Co-existence (GMPC) convener Ningthouja Lancha has lamented the lack of action on the part of both state and central governments to initiate tripartite talks to resolve the burning issue of economic blockade.

He was speaking at a peace campaign-cum-reconciliation programme held at Nongshum village, Imphal East today. It was organised by Goodwill Mission for Peaceful Co-existence (GPMC).

Goodwill Mission for Peaceful Co-existence  has been organising such programmes since December 20 all across the state for bringing an end to the present impasse and restored normalcy.

Lamenting over the delayed tripartite talks, Lancha said GMPC has proposed to start a tripartite talk as promised to leaders of United Naga Council (UNC) who are now under police custody during a meeting with the chief secretary.

The special secretary of the Union Home Ministry has also assured to initiate the tripartite talks on December 27 but the central government is yet to respond till date, Lancha disclosed.

A reminder has also been sent on January 2 that the tense situation in state may aggravate if the central government keeps on delaying the talks, he added.

Lancha is also peeved that Centre’s interlocutor RN Ravi has invited only United Committee Manipur (UCM), All Manipur United Clubs Organisation (AMUCO) and Committee of Civil Societies Kangleipak (CCSK) for the third round of consultations to arrive at an agreement among stakeholders before making an agreement with NSCN (IM) by leaving out GPMC.

GMPC co-conveners R Chandra Haomei and Romeo Kasar and its secretary Asang Kasar were also present during the occasion.
