NTIMES 15Nov: Kuki agitation defers by two days
LAMKA, November 14: The Kuki State Demand Committee (KSDC) has deferred the mass movement or public blockade for two days in public interest due to ‘Ningol Chakouba’ festival on the request of different civil organisations of Manipur, according to The Kuki State Demand Committee (KSDC). The “public blockade” will now be started from 5 pm of November 17 instead of November 15 evening.
“It has been resolved to proceed with the bandh indefinitely i.e. until the government of India gives a written assurance, that political dialogue between the government of India and the Kuki people represented by the Kuki State Demand Committee and Kuki militant organisations presently under Suspension of Operation (SoO) agreement with the government of India begins on a pre-determined date on Kuki political demand for a separate statehood,” said the KSDC today.
“In the light of the above, the KSDC feels it is important to redress the public misinformation affected by such map which has no authentication from us. We could therefore appeal your esteemed paper to publish the correct map of Kuki territories which we hereby enclosed,” said the KSDC. NNN/Mexn
