TSA demands Government intervention over threats from KPLF/KPLA and TIK

IMPHAL, Feb 16: The Thadou Students’ Association, General Headquarters (TSA-GHQ) has said that it has submitted a complaint letter to the Chief Minister, Director General of Police and Chief Secretary for urgent necessary action over threats from an armed militant groups, the Kuki People Liberation Front/Kuki People Liberation Army (KPLF/KPLA) and Tellang Insung Kiloikhom, Manipur (TIK-M) against the leaders of TSA and Thadou Inpi, the apex body of Thadou tribe, to resign from their positions.
TIK Moreh block had earlier issued a similar decree that everyone from Tellang clan must disown Thadou tribe and quit their positions in Thadou organisations, namely, Thadou Inpi and TSA at the earliest, said the association.
TSA had earlier served separate ultimatums to TIK-M and KPLF/KPLA through Eimi Times to withdraw their diktats, but there has been no response. Though the motive behind the issuance of the diktats of the TIK and KPLF/KPLA is unspecified or unclear, it seems that they are motivated by some vested interests to stir up hate and communal tensions in the community for some political gains, said the association.
The diktats promote and perpetuate hate crime and communal disharmony and has potential to cause unwanted widespread communal riots any time if not immediately dealt with effectively and seriously by Government, said the TSA in its statement.
If the Government does not take necessary actions, the Government along with the KPLF/KPLA / KNO/KNA and TIK-M will be held responsible for any untoward incident, TSA said in its statement.
TSA further warned that it will launch intense agitations if the Government failed to meet their demands by March 30.
