Chairman of proscribed People’s Revolutionary Party of Kangleipak (Progressive) L Paliba M extended greetings to all Kangleichas on the eve of the 11th Progressive Day of the outfit that falls on June 1.

PREPAK (Pro) will not be celebrating its anniversary other than reading out the chairman’s message as a mark of respect. The outfit also condoled the passing away of three leaders of PREPAK recently in an unfortunate incident, said the chairman in a press release.

In his message, the chairman expressed his deepest sympathy to those families, who have lost their loved ones during the ongoing pandemic and appreciating the corona warriors for rendering their noble services in the fight against the pandemic.

The devastating scale of pandemic has put health facilities in India on the brink of collapse. Many COVID-19 patients dropped down on the roads and died at open spaces due to the acute shortages of life saving medical supplies and lack of hospital beds, said the statement of the chairman.

Dead bodies have been found dumped in India’s holiest river Ganga like dead animals. Many judicial courts expressed strong words to the Government of India (GoI) for undermining the severity of the COVID-19 crisis. Recently, the Delhi High Court outrageously noticed the central administration to pursue much needed medical Oxygen by any means such as begging, borrowing, stealing or importing to save people’s lives. The whole world is looking at the worst and disgraceful conditions of Covid-19 in India, it added.

it further said it is ironical that the GoI has declared the victory over the coronavirus, and began to start “Vaccine diplomacy”. Three months before, India has exported vaccines just to show off the world and to prove that India can compete with China. Currently, India being the super spreader of this pandemic, has been seeking to import vaccines from anywhere else to exterminate the variant of Covid-19 which is also known as “Indian variant”, it added

Comparing such “ridiculous scenario” with the proverbial frog that burst by puffing himself while competing to the size of a cow, the statement said Indian ruling elites boastfully asserted that “Make in India” initiative would enable India to replace the Chinese items. Isn’t it ludicrous that the world’s tallest iconic statue of Sardar Valabhbhai Patel’s bronze cladding was made in China?, it asked. As such India’s “Make in India and Vaccine Diplomacy” has become the living example of the funny metaphor of Keibui Keioiba who is trying to carry water in a hollow bamboo jar, it added.

The statement further said More than 70 lakh pilgrims participated in the Kumbh Mela and around one lakh people were allowed to gather in many election rallies which had ultimately catalysed the spike in Covid cases. Since the GOI knew the likely woeful outcome of the pandemic in advance, there is a feeling of apprehension about the incautiousness of precautionary measures. Is the GOI willing to impose depopulation surreptitiously? If it is true then the gravest misfortune will fall upon the colonized and dependent Kangleipak, which has a small population. The current alarming death rate of the pandemic is distressful, if unchecked, the future generation will be vanished from our soil, it added.

The PREPAK (Pro) also said the Constitution of India does not provide much administrative power to State like Manipur. The state government cannot independently mobilize the resources and means for development. The practical motto of the Indian Constitution is the centralization of decision making by few at the Centre while decentralizing its adverse outcomes to the states. The state government could not play its role in national decision making discussion, it added.

Stating that the handful of ruling leaders has taken decisions on Demonetization, CAA, Farmers Bill, Covid-crisis management, but their negative outcomes are being distributed among common people, the statement said it is now obvious that Manipur is not empowered to garner help from other countries during the present critical situation. The fact that Manipur is being suppressed by the rules of Indian constitution means that the state is constitutionally under siege, it added.

Such hegemonic precept had colonized the mind of Manipuri by inducing the people thinking that the state’s share would not be available unless begging at the Centre, said the statement. The State’s leaders with their self-interest motive of contract works entreated the Centre too. They have never thought to claim the rightful shares nor have shown boldness given the entitled miniscule share. Disgraceful and cowardly act also makes the mainland Indian to detest the Manipuri as a whole, it added.

The chairman of the proscribed outfit claimed that living under India’s mercy amid these spineless bone-headed local leaders and exploitative system of law, development and progress could not come forward. The recent handful of developmental programmes would also be earning space for Indian capitalists. It is good to notice that the 72 years of Indian-ruled Manipur could not touch the once golden periods of Kangleipak kingdom, he added.

He stated that western countries, particularly the USA, have an extensive mindset that the democracy norms must be American model akin to the taste of American product “Coca Cola” whose taste is homogenous everywhere. They do not give much emphasis on the diverse forms of democracies adopted in accordance with the variation of history and traditions among countries.

Under the radar of this political doctrine and democratic compass, the USA views China and Russia with a feeling of animosity irrespective of their long civilizational history. Likewise, the Indian ruling elites also disregard regional peripheral history, rather they have been propagating that India (Indian) should be Hinduness with Hindu religious and cultural bond and Hindi as national language, alleged the statement. One newly offshoot “Indian Democracy” with the end of Hindutva and Akhand Bharat, has been preaching as “Idea of India” to assimilate into India, it added.

Stating that such dominant and assimilation policy of the “Idea of India” could not be opposed effectively simply by protest at roads and so on, the chairman said the evolutionary, philosophical, spiritual and political history of Kangleipak must be fully and consciously instilled to enroot in the mind of Kangleichas through educational syllabus. The changing influential wave originated from India has been adversely making a loose knot in discipline, ethos, moral and character of Manipuris, which is reaching a stage of easy lifestyle. These changes need to be eradicated by knowing our age-old valued custom and tradition.

“Here I would like to draw attention that there must be robust bedrock in our mind-set for “Kangleipak First, India Second, Not to be Indian”,” said the chairman. Now, the patriotic sentiment is the only saviour and safety-valve of Kangleipak, there is nothing else, he added.

The chairman further said the energy and power for defending our motherland must be drawn from Kangla and Koubru. Kangla must be the political centre of gravity rather than Delhi. At this juncture, we must think and act under the vision of “Harmony in diversity” toward the end of “Unity in diversity”.

Asserting that among the countries which had been ruled continuously with monarchism, Kangleipak is also one next to China, the chairman said,” China is a civilization state which had a long history of social and cultural development. The formation of so-called India as Nation state with the objective of centralization of power was imitated from Western version of the nation making process.”

Many intellectuals now opine that India is fully filled with many issues and problems which cannot be solved easily. This narrative means that India cannot be reformed, it must be re-formed structurally. As long as we are part of disintegrated India, many will die from jobless inflicted mental illness and drug addiction or any ordinary disease and new pandemic. Only the independence of Kangleipak is the panacea for saving Kangleipak, he added.

“Lastly my appeal is to compassionately serve and care for COVID-19 patients and we must fight together against this deadly pandemic,” concluded the chairman.
