Press Release Lamka /3rd November 2015

With the customary Hiamkhaam performed by the Manipur State Government on 2nd November, 2015 wherein the Joint Action Committee accepted the State Government's acknowledgement of guilt for the actions committed by the State Security Forces, the Joint Action Committee in a joint meeting with the innpis/tribe councils and tribal leaders today resolved to temporarily suspend all dharnas and bandhs from tomorrow, including the Total Bandh which was proposed to begin from the midnight of 3rd November 2015. However, if the talks with the State Government fail at any stage, more intensive agitations will be launched.
On the other hand, school and college timings will remain unchanged. Also, as a mark of respect to our departed Tribal Martyrs, shops and offices will continue to remain closed from 2:00PM in the afternoon till 5:00AM the next day.

The joint meeting also discussed in detail the proposed Charter of Demands to be made to the Government of Manipur, and would like to thank those who have contributed their ideas and suggestions towards framing of the document.
