ST demand continues
IMPHAL, Sep 22 : As part of the ongoing movement for inclusion of Meetei/Meitei in the ST list of the Indian Constitution, a sit-in protest was staged at Soibam Leikai Wangkhei Khunou, today.
The sit-in protest was jointly organised by Soibam Leikai Awang Meira Paibi Chaokhat Lup and Scheduled Tribe Demand Committee of Manipur (STDCM).
At the protest site, one of the protesters expressed disappointment with the State Government for sidelining the demand of STDCM.
The STDCM has been urging the State Government to send the ethnography and socio economic reports of the Meetei/Meitei so as to enlist the ethnic group in the ST list.
Saying that the movement initiated by STDCM is for the wellbeing of every Meitei/Meetei, she added that they will extend full support to all measures taken up by STDCM.
