World Meetei Council Urges Immediate Government Action to Protect Meetei Community in Manipur

Lakhipuronline Digital Desk :In a recent demonstration held at Jantar Mantar on May 14, 2023, the World Meetei Council (WMC) emphasized the urgent need for government intervention to ensure the survival of the Meetei community in the state of Manipur. The council highlighted three critical points in an SOS call to the Government of India.
Firstly, the WMC stressed the importance of constitutional protection for the Meetei people, who have been advocating for their survival for the past 11 years. They expressed concern over the rapidly changing demography caused by the influx of illegal migrants from neighboring Myanmar. By granting constitutional protection, the Meetei community can safeguard its distinct identity and cultural heritage.
Secondly, the council called for the implementation of the National Register of Citizens (NRC) in Manipur. They emphasized the need to identify and address the issue of illegal migrants to protect all indigenous communities in the region. The NRC would play a crucial role in this regard.

Lastly, the WMC raised the alarm about the atrocities being inflicted upon the indigenous community by illegal migrant groups, often supported by armed militant factions. These acts of violence have been systematically perpetrated since 1993, and the council insists that immediate action must be taken to put an end to this menace.

The World Meetei Council appeals to all Indian citizens and the Government of India to recognize the gravity of the situation and understand that it has now become a national security concern. They earnestly request a meeting with the Hon'ble Prime Minister and Hon'ble Home Minister of India to discuss these pressing issues as soon as possible.

The Chairman of the World Meetei Council, Heigrujam Nabashyam, emphasized the criticality of the situation and urged the government to take prompt action to protect the Meetei community in Manipur.
