Coordinating Committee on Manipur Integrity (COCOMI) has decided to oppose any move by the government of India to create any kind of Autonomous Territorial Council in Manipur.

It also demanded the government of Manipur to summon a special session of Manipur legislative assembly before December 10 acknowledging the agreed points discussed with the Union home minister.

The public convention on future course of action (after meeting the Union Home Minister, Amit Shah) organised by COCOMI, held on Friday at IMA Auditorium, Imphal with professor W Nabakumar as the moderator has unanimously adopted five resolutions.

It resolved to oppose the creation of any kind of Autonomous Territorial Council in Manipur based on ethnic lines as the consequence of the peace talk with NSCN (IM) as it was reflected in the intention of the Union Home Minister during the deliberation with COCOMI delegation in New Delhi recently, the resolution stated.

“Considering the verbal assurance given by the Union Home minister to a 18 member COCOMI delegation that government of Manipur, Opposition parties and Civil Society Organisations will be consulted in case anything to affect Manipur is to be included in the final agreement of peace talk with NSCN (IM) is not acceptable to the people of Manipur as it does not imply the consent of people of Manipur. In the light of this fact, it is resolved that the GOI be requested to take the consent of the people through Government of Manipur and CSO’s involved and to make a statement to this effect in the on-going Parliament session,” it added.

It also resolved to continue the on-going peoples’ movement to protect Manipur’s unity and integrity.

It also resolved to demand the government of Manipur to summon a special session of Manipur legislative assembly before December 10 acknowledging the agreed points discussed with the Union home minister.

“The issue of ethnic harmony and administrative setup for the inclusive benefit of the people of Manipur shall not be decided by the GOI or a section of Manipuri Society but by mutual discussion among various communities residing in the state,” the COCOMI resolution asserted.
