National People’s Party (NPP) has resolved to restore peace and harmony in violence-torn Manipur at a national committee meeting held in New Delhi today.
The resolution reads, “The National People’s Party (NPP) is deeply pained with the ongoing situation in the State of Manipur. As a party, we resolve to engage with all communities to collectively work together in restoring peace and harmony. We pray that the situation is restored to normal at the earliest, which is in the interest of the State and its people.”
NPP President and Meghalaya Chief Minister Conrad K Sangma told reporters that the Manipur situation is very complicated and must be handled in a very delicate manner or else it can have long lasting implications.
“The resolution adopted is for peace, and we will play a positive role. As for political situation we have not discussed it, as it is a sensitive matter and many stakeholders are involved in it,” he said.
Sangma also informed that NPP intends to contest assembly polls in different states, with focus on areas where minority thrives, and the Lok Sabha elections as well as an independent party.
“NPP always focuses on Indigenous people and minorities, and therefore we will discuss the issue when it comes to contesting in places like Jharkhand where indigenous tribals thrive, and Kerala which has minorities,” he said.
