A considerable number of individuals staged a protest on June 18 at Indo-Burma Road in the Imphal West District, boycotting the ‘Mann Ki Baat’ program to express their condemnation of Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s silence on the violence in Manipur.
During the protest, the participants destroyed radio sets and voiced their disinterest in listening to the ‘Mann Ki Baat’ program by chanting slogans.
We Want Manipur Ki Baat
“We are against the ‘Mann Ki Baat’ program and we oppose it. We want to hear about Manipur, not Modi’s thoughts. We don’t want to listen to PM Modi’s ‘Mann Ki Baat’,” stated one of the protestors.
Khomdram Surendra, the Media Coordinator of Thawai Meerel, expressed his disapproval of Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s silence on the ongoing crisis in Manipur and stated that they boycotted the ‘Mann Ki Baat’ program on All India Radio.
“Since Prime Minister Narendra Modi shows no concern for the troubles faced by Manipur, the people do not wish to listen to his ‘Mann Ki Baat’,” he added.
People’s Anger With CM Biren Singh
Surendra further criticized Manipur Chief Minister N Biren Singh for his inability to exert pressure on central leaders to resolve the current crisis, suggesting a lack of effectiveness.
Expressing his frustration over Prime Minister Modi’s silence on Manipur, Surendra highlighted that the PM had come to Manipur during the election period, humbly seeking votes, but now seems disinterested in genuinely resolving the state’s crisis.
