Meitei Alliance has endorsed the Kangla Resolutions, dated January 24, 2024, signed by 37 Members of the Manipur Legislative Assembly and two Members of Parliament.

A press statement issued by the alliance said the Resolutions supposedly include urging the Government of India to (1) Update the National Register of Citizens, (2) Abrogate the Suspension of Operations with Kuki militant organizations, (3) Erect fencing along the Indo-Myanmar international borders, (4) Remove the names of Kuki illegal immigrants from the Scheduled Tribes list of Manipur, (5) Replace Assam Rifles with other Central Security Forces, etc.

It said that the Resolutions were adopted at the joint congregations organised under the initiatives of the Arambai Tenggol at the lawn of the Kangla Uttra inside the Kangla Fort at Imphal. The choice of the venue, the composition of participants, and the contents of the resolutions are remarkable, it added.

First, the congregation at Kangla signifies the latent rejuvenation of the pre-colonial socio-political values attributed to Kangla as the center of power of indigenous governance, which has ceased to be functional ever since the British invasion in 1891, it said.

Second, the joint congregation of the elected representatives across parties and Arambai Tenggol leaders, and the support shown by various other organizations is an unprecedented event marked by placing patriotism, nationalism, and collective will above all other loyalties, it added.

Third, the contents of the resolutions exemplify a higher level of political maturity and commitment to address the common grievances of the indigenous people of Manipur, it further stated.

The statement also said, Meitei Alliance strongly feels that the demands are timely, lawful, and democratic. “Most of these demands align with the reported decisions or measures adopted by the Government of India to address the larger agenda of India’s security. The Resolutions are timely reminders towards helping the Government urgently come up with concrete action plans in Manipur to immediately restore peace, overcome war hysteria, recover from wounded psyches, and rebuild the people’s trust in good governance,” it added.

Meitei Alliance, therefore, appreciates the congregation at Kangla and endorses the Resolutions, it added, it said.
