Manipur: Objection over modifications made by state govt on the monolith of Anglo-Kuki War
The Chief Minister of Manipur unveiled the Kuki Raising Monument at C Aisan Village in Kangpokpi district through video conferencing from the Chief Minister’s secretariat in Imphal, Manipur.
The Kuki National Assembly (KNA) had issued a letter to the Manipur Chief Minister N.Biren Singh on October 15, objectifying against modifications made by the state government to the 2019 centenary commemoration monolith.
Mangboi Haokip, President of Kuki National Assembly said, Manipur merged into the Indian Union, the King of Manipur Bodhachandra got the “pension privileged and compensation” from Government of India but the Kuki chiefs never got it.
He also said that “their patience is running out over the indifference attitude, the divide and rule policy of the Meitei Chief Minister” and alleging the annexation of tribal territories to valley districts on the pretext of Administrative convenience.
Meanwhile, the International Human Rights Association called for the right to protest against the “historical negationism committed on the monolith of Anglo- Kuki war by the Government of Manipur”.
