Manipur is a small state in the Northeastern part of India. Though the state has been a shining place regarding its rich cultural heritage, it has long seen insurgency issues due to the nature of its merger with the Indian Union.2023 has become a sad story that will go down in history as one of the darkest days. The state is witnessing a communal riot between two of its biggest groups: the Meiteis and the Kukis.

The cause of the riot and how it started is strongly debated, with many mainstream media channels publishing only half-cooked-biased news. The lack of timely intervention from Government forces has led to the spread of the riot. The violence that broke out in Manipur in early May is spread across different regions of the state and has claimed many innocent lives and destroyed many properties, with countless houses reduced to ashes.

The Fate of Students

MitSna is concerned about the ongoing internet ban imposed in Manipur since 4th May 2023, affecting the lives of numerous individuals, particularly students, and youths. Many students have missed registration deadlines for crucial examinations such as CUET PG and JEE Advanced, and some need access to information regarding their internships. The internet ban has been extended is still on, and if it persists, it may jeopardize students’ academic and career prospects.

Our Letter to the Chief Minister's Office (CMO)

MitSna stands in solidarity with those working towards bringing peace to the state. Beyond the public inconvenience, the internet ban jeopardizes many students’ academic and career prospects in Manipur. MitSna has mailed the district magistrates of the state addressing some alarming issues the students encounter concerning the internet ban. We have also submitted a physical letter to the Chief Minister’s Office, Manipur.

Our efforts in pressuring the government to open pop-up internet facilities resulted in a positive result. The notice of the government’s decision to provide internet services to students came few days after our submission. To convey MitSna’s statements, we have contacted various local and national news media. The two local newspapers, Sanaleibak and Sangai Express ; four national news agencies have covered us. The TV news network, Impact TV, ISTV, and AIR (All India Radio) have also broadcasted our messages.
