IMPHAL, Oct. 20, 2023 (TBINN)
Chief Minister of Manipur N. Biren Singh has said that anyone who joins the state police force has to forget ethnic belongingness and work for the welfare of the nation as an Indian.
Chief Minister’s statement came amid allegations that a section of police personnel in the state rocked by ethnic strife for months have been working in favour of their respective groups.
Notably, Meitei and Kuki communities have been fighting against each other since early May. N. Biren Singh said that once you enter the state police, you have to remove the mindset of ethnic division. You may be a Meitei, a Muslim, Thadou, Naga, Vaiphei, but you have to forget the ethnic belongingness and have to work for the welfare of the nation as an Indian, as a Manipuri.
