By Our Staff Reporter
IMPHAL, Oct 9: Demo-cratic Students' Alliance of Manipur (DESAM) and All Naga Students' Association, Manipur (ANSAM) have reaffirmed their Memo-randum of Understanding (MoU) signed on February 9, 2016 at Manipur University, during a meeting held at Dewlaland, Imphal, today.
A press release issued jointly by DESAM and ANSAM said that the representatives of the two organisations discussed on issues pertaining to different communities living in the State and made few resolutions during the meeting.
Affirming that working together is the only beginning to address the historically rooted injustice, DESAM and ANSAM resolved to work in solidarity for a common cause and establish a mutually acceptable term for political and social cooperation.
It also resolved to gain deeper understanding on the issues affecting different communities living in the State through dialogue with all stakeholders, adding that the two organisations also agreed to explore avenues to work for peace, justice and development of all sections of society.
Stating that the binding foundation of this understanding is to address the issues of common concerns so that the youth and students in particular and society at large could have healthy space for mutually enriching coexistence, it appealed all to refrain from making detrimental or divergent speeches.
To meet these goal, DESAM and ANSAM will work together with commitment for the common interest of different communities in the State, further said the joint statement.
Significantly this is the second time, after 2016, that the two student bodies have affirmed their stand to work together on issues which concern the interests of the people and the students.
