Written by: Staff

Imphal, Mar 3 (UNI) The Meitei Development Association, Barak valley, has announced that it will launch a stir if the government does not stop influx of people and harassment of local populace by Bangladeshi immigrants and security personnel at Jiribam in the Manipur Assam Border.

President of the Association Kh Gouro alleged that large numbers of Bangladesh citizens were pouring into Manipur and they were supported by army. Local populace were threatened by army personnel in the name of counter insurgency operations and many locals have fled their villages, he said.

The local people were also forced to work by security personnel and large scale arson and harassment of people continue in collusion with a particular community, it was alleged.

The locals had demanded state forces and when state forces were kept there was peace and when it was withdrawn harassment has started again, it was revealed.

Meanwhile, Chief Minister Okram Ibobi Singh had informed the assembly yesterday that the government will try to check the influx of outsiders to the state. If we do not check influx communal tension will flare up, he said.

As per the latest census report 25 per cent population of the state were found to be outsiders.
