YPA holds protest rally against ZRO president
CCPUR, 17th Nov: Young Paite Association (YPA) Saturday organised a protest rally in Churachandpur district against Zomi Re-unification Organisation (ZRO) president Thanglianpau, who, according to YPA, instigated one Romeo to kill YPA GHQ secretary Lianmuanthang on September 22.
The rally started from YPA GHQ hall at Hiangtam Lamka at 11.30 am. The rally took the Tipaimukh Road, Thangjam road, Tedim Road, CCpur PS and ended at the starting point where a short meeting was held.
Meanwhile, YPA GHQ and Paite Tribe Council (PTC) in a joint statement condemned in the strongest term the firing incidents at Dorcas Veng New Lamka on Friday night around 10. They appealed to perpetrators of the crime not to resort to such mean act in future while adding that the situation could take an ugly turn if the angry public were not pacified by the local elders.
Terming a statement issued by TK Zomi and Moses as lies, the two bodies maintained that there will be peace and tranquillity if those who orchestrated murder of its leaders are not given protection. The statement further said ZRO president Thanglianpau caused impediments to the political talks with the government and added that Paite groups which are part of Zomi view the matter seriously. Paite community will not remain a mute spectator in case of any eventuality regarding the matter, it stated while urging ZRO not to create any further problem.
