The Kuki students took out a rally in Imphal on Wednesday. The rally according to the organisers, was held as part of observing September 13 as ‘Sahnit Ni’ or black day.
The observation was held to fondly remember those who had died during ethnic clashes which took place 24 years ago in Manipur.
Demanding settlement of Kuki issues before finalisation of (Indo-Naga) framework agreement, the rallyists wearing black attires staged the rally which passed through the roads in and around Thangmeiband and North AOC and converged at the starting point Thangmeiband Athletic Union Ground in Imphal.
In a recent memorandum to the Prime Minister, Kuki Inpi Manipur, apex body of the Kuki community in the state demanded legal settlement of the heinous crime against humanity, resettlement of and restoration of 360 villages and 1 lakh displaced villagers.
The Kuki Inpi have appealed to five Prime Ministers who preceded in that position of authority and responsibility, but none of them have shown the sense of justice nor pressure of conscience to act to deliver justice to their fellow citizens, it lamented.
