Meekap Thokpa Numit: AMSU calls for unity on Realisation Day

A mass procession was taken out by the participants from the hillock to the campus of Manipur College where a public gathering along with a blood donation camp was held.


 

The All Manipur Students’ Union (AMSU) on Saturday called for unity among the different indigenous communities of Manipur as it marked its 41st 'Meekap Thokpa Numit' (Realisation Day) in Imphal with a function that started at the hillock of Pishum Chingamacha where AMSU’s flag was hoisted.

As a part of the function, floral tributes were offered to the two student martyrsPotshangbam Premananda and Huidrom Lokendrowho laid down their lives during the ‘Go Back Foreigner’ movement of April 17, 1980.

A mass procession was taken out by the participants from the hillock to the campus of Manipur College where a public gathering along with a blood donation camp was held.

The present Inner Line Permit (ILP) system implemented in the state does not have any policy to save the indigenous population of Manipur and therefore, the people of Manipur need to be united, AMSU president Haobijam Chalamba said while speaking to the media on the sidelines of the function.

Chalamba also said that the state government needs to act immediately and resolve the matter concerning Mt Koubru to maintain peace and brotherhood between different communities, the president added.

The function was attended by Manipur College assistant professor and former AMSU president L Gojendro as chief guest, Manipur University associate professor Yumnam Premananda and convenor of Joint Committee on Inner Line Permit System YK Dhiren as guests of honour respectively.
