Imphal: The Khousabung Area Peoples’ Alliance (KAPA) and the Khousabung Sub-Division Demand Committee (KSDDC) have urged chief minister N.Biren Singh to expedite the process for creation and inauguration of Khousabung sub-division before the state Assembly Election.
A people’s conclave initiated by KAPA and KSDDC was held on Sunday at Khousabung Inpi, Churachandpur district, a joint press statement released on Sunday said.
The meeting reiterated its strongest condemnation of the ‘cabinet decision’ adopted on February 10, 2016 regarding the shifting of proposed Khousabung sub-division to Kangvai sub division, it added..
The meeting resolved to urge all political parties and all intending candidates of 57-Henglep AC to make their stand clear on the proposed Khousabung sub division at the earliest.
The Cabinet decision taken under the chairmanship of the then chief minister Okram Ibobi with the ill-advice of the then Congress MLA T Manga Vaiphei was not only unconstitutional, the release said.
It said the decision was a demonstration of parochial and divisive agenda which is undemocratic and smacks of subjugation of people’s voice.
The meeting also reiterated its commitment to jointly pursue the demand as the proposed sub-division is the aspiration of the people of Khousabung Area for over two-three decades now, it added.
The meeting also resolved to observe February 10, 2022 as Khousabung Black Day in pursuit of justice for Khousabung sub-division, it said.
