Chief minister Nongthombam Biren Singh has termed yesterday ambush at Kwatha village that inured four security personnel as an act of cowards as he addressed on the Anti-Terrorism Day observation at the Banquet Hall of 1st Battalion Manipur Rifles today.
He said, “Hitting somebody from behind is a cowardice act and the state government can’t remain silent if such senseless activities continue to happen”.
Apart from looking into the activities of cadres of the organisations which are under Suspension of Operation, there is need for restructuring the rehabilitation package for surrendered cadres as well, he added.
Biren Singh said the new Government has a firm objective to bring a positive change in the state but this aspiration needs support and co-operation from every section of the society.
The new Government came into being with a message of peace and development and it is ready to sort out all the misunderstandings and problems through talks, but it will never compromise with any organisation at the cost of territorial integrity of the State and unity of the people, added Biren Singh.
He urged the civil society organisations of the state not to make unnecessary clarifications or claims or counter-claims on the media which may create enmity among the people of different communities.
The chief minister appealed the public to live together and put in joint effort to bring equal development in all parts of the State.
Consumer affairs, food and public distribution minister Karam Shyam said that nothing is more valuable than human lives. Observing the day assumes lots of significance in the states like Manipur where unwarranted killings and violence are happening every now and then. Terrorism would not serve any purpose but it can only give hardships to the common people.
