KSO calls 24 hr general strike

IMPHAL, May 20: Kuki Students' Organisation General Headquarters (KSO-GHQ) has called a 24 hours general strike from 5 am on May 21, 2013 in connection with the allocation of quota in respect of ST candidates in the recruitment of constables in Manipur Police department.

Announcing this in a press conference at its administrative office at Kuki Inn here, Mangcha Baite, Vice President (Admn) KSO-GHQ said there was a backlog of 474 posts in the recruitment process held during 20/2/2008 and 10/12/2008 and the backlog of 28 posts in Manipur Police Housing Corporation Limited.

The KSO-GHQ is demanding that the backlog of 474 posts should be filled separately i.e. independent of the quota already allocated for the STs in the ensuing recruitment process for 2000 numbers of constable posts in the department. Also, the department should make an effort to fill up 28 various posts reserved for STs vide proposal letter No.G/19/2012-MPHC/505, he stressed.

He also said, every citizen of the state has an obligation for peaceful co-existence amongst different ethnic communities and preserves the integrity of the State. It is when such deprivation of rights or discrimination occurred, people usually have chosen for separate administration of their own to avert all such discriminative administration.

Therefore, the student body has appealed the general public, like-minded student organizations and other civil organizations to extend a helping hand in rectifying the state government's act of discrimination towards the tribal population in the state, he continued.

He also appealed the public, especially all the concerned vehicle owners to co-operate with regard to the bandh call. Any untoward incident during the 24 hours general strike due to non-compliance by any individual or party shall be at their own risk. However basic facilities like medical, water supply and media will be exempted from the purview of the strike.

The 24 hours general strike called is the first form of agitation registered by the student body and if the demands remain unheeded, a series of agitation are set on standby which will be introduced from time to time unless the demands are fulfilled, he concluded.
