‘Rethink on police jurisdiction needed’

IMPHAL, October 29: The police district boundary administration established by the state Home department in June, 2011 which has affected about 100 Kuki villages is a very unfortunate matter. We need to rearrange the boundaries of the police district administration as soon as possible, said Saikul MLA Yamthong Haokip.

He made the statement during his guest of honor speech at the Saikul block level Kut Festival - 2013, organized at the Saikul Block Ground today.

He further elaborated that as a result of the re-organisation, many villages inhabited by the Kuki communities may be split.  We need to relocate the boundary in the shortest period otherwise many Kuki villages might be merged to the valley districts, he stated.

He recounted that regarding the reorganisation of the boundary, the Kuki Inpi, Saikul and Saikul Area Naga People Organization had called a 48-hour bandh at Senapati district on last October 14. The Kuki Inpi is bent on pressuring the state government on the matter; the people must support the Kuki Inpi in the movement for a fruitful solution. Instead of lecturing, let us perform under a concrete action plan, stated the MLA.

The chief guest of the function GinsuanhaoZou, MLA Singhat AC said the Kuki communities have been celebrating the Kut festival in different days till now. But one day the Kuki communities - Kuki-Chin-Mizo-Zomi - will unite and will celebrate the ancestral festival at one place and in a single particular date and day.

He added that now many section of public from the community are appealing for celebration of the Kut festival either in late November or early December stating that Kut festival was being celebrated even when the harvesting has not been performed.

The Kut committee says that the present date of November 2 was fixed by our ancestor and we have been celebrating the festival on that day which had subsequently been approved by the state government and declaration as a general holiday. The chief guest further said for Saikul AC Yamthong Haokip is the perfect leader and that from his supervision the area appeared to have developed in comparison to the past. “The development is upon you because without the participation of public, development cannot be initiated.  We know the unity and strength of the Saikul people and that one day the area will be fully developed,” he told the gathering.

The Kut Pa of the celebration was Thangkhosei Haokip, President of Kuki Inpi Manipur. The celebration featured a Gurkha cultural presentation and a traditional dance and Thangalsurung, Thangal-Naga cultural and traditional dance performace.
