A 12-hour bandh has been called in Senapati district, starting from 6 am of Wednesday endorsing the call of the ATSUM to boycott the state’s “Go to Hills 2.0” campaign.
The decision to proceed with the ‘Go to Hills 2.0’ programmes, after aggressive moves to push forward discriminatory and unconstitutional policies, is a direct insult to the tribal and indigenous communities in Manipur, a release stated.
The student body also appealed to the general public not to participate in the upcoming Go to Hills 2.0 which is due for Senapati district.
Several civil bodies in Chandel alleged the state government of undermining and manipulating the sentiments of the tribal populace.
The ATSUM, the ANSAM and the KSO general headquarters and all federating units of ATSUM held an emergency meeting on Monday in Imphal.
