Joint pol parties meeting resolves to demand immediate halt to border fencing

IMPHAL, September 23: Political parties in the State including national and regional parties except for the ruling Congress held a Joint Political Parties meeting against the ongoing Indo-Myanmar Border Fencing at Keishampat Leirembi Community Hall.

Several members and active workers of the parties attended the meeting.

Speaking to media persons, Dr M Nara- state secretary CPI said that the ongoing border fencing along the Indo-Myanmar border with an estimated 100 Km of border area from Ukhrul to Churachanpur stands to concede a vast portion of state land to Myanmar if the ongoing process is not stopped in time.

Various civil societies, NGOs and political parties of the state who have visited the site of the fencing work have earlier expressed similar concerns.

He also condemned the statement given by Dr J Suresh Babu, Principal Secretary (Home) that the fencing is just a security fencing taken up by the government to check infiltration in the area.

The joint political meeting will demand the state government to halt the ongoing border fencing work immediately until a proper demarcation of the border land has been finalised, he said and further appealed to both governments of India and Myanmar to conduct proper survey and demarcate the border area before proceeding with the border fencing works.

He added the state government should invite all the political parties for a joint meeting to discuss the border fencing and should take a collective resolution which should be submitted to the central government through our State Government.

State leaders of the political parties present today include Y Mani- president, MSCP; M Nara, state secretary CPI; M Tombi- president JD (U) Manipur; S Sarat, state secretary CPI (M); N Sovakiran, president MPP; M Apanthon chairman All India Forward Block; N Kabita BSP; S Shamungou- organiser Shiv Sena; Athon Abonmei-president NPF Manipur; K Tomba, vice president Trinamool Congress; Kh Gyaneshor, state secretary AIFB and Aziz Khan-president Pangal Political Party.
