Shri Okram Ibobi Singh
Hon’ble Chief Minister
Regarding inauguration of Sadar Hills as a full-fledged district
The Kuki Inpi Manipur and the KSO General Headquarters greatly appreciate your government’s decision to inaugurate Sadar Hills as a full-fledged district. In this respect we are very much grateful to the hon’ble chief minister for your determination to resolve this long standing issue of the people of Sadar Hills once and for all.
But it has been learnt that inauguration of other districts by the government is also in the offing. Here the KIM and KSO are of the opinion that no other district should be inaugurated prior to inauguration of Sadar Hills. The inauguration of Sadar Hills, which was kept at bay for the past 30 years, should be accorded its rightful privilege, and as such should be inaugurated first. The Kuki Inpi and KSO are firmly resolved in this view and cannot accept inauguration of other districts prior to Sadar Hills.
Again, it has been learnt that the Naga civil bodies have opposed the inauguration of Sadar Hills as a full-fledged district. The Naga civil bodies have pressurised the government to thwart its plan to inaugurate Sadar Hills by threatening the state with unlawful agitations. Here, the Kuki Inpi and KSO are of the opinion that the government should not succumb to this threat of the Naga civil bodies. The government has every right to inaugurate Sadar Hills as per the law of the land. If the government yield to the pressure of the Naga civil bodies, the Kuki people will consider the state government as a pawn in the hands of the Naga civil bodies. In any eventuality, the Kuki people will be compelled to rethink its policy towards the government. Therefore, the government must not shy away from its commitment to inaugurate Sadar Hills.
To conclude, the Kuki Inpi and KSO urge the government to take this view under serious consideration, thereby inaugurate Sadar Hills as a full-fledged district at the earliest and also ensure that the inauguration of Sadar Hills precedes inauguration of other districts.
