SSSC Appeals the Govt. on the eve of celebration of 68th Indian Independence
ANJAN KUMAR SAMAL | 16 Aug 2015

Government of our Incredible India need to rethink on this peacefull ,truthfull and non violant fast more seriously and to act immediately in this regard on the eve of the celebration of 68th Indian Independence.

Save Sharmila Solidarity Campaign (SSSC) welcomes the decision of peace accord between Govt and NSCN (IM). By this historic peace accord, there are many signals from the side of the government, first of all it conveys the importance to restore the peace and the commitment for development in North East states where non other then  the Prime Minister himself was present during peace accord with Manipur's  NSCN(IM) leaders. 

SSSC deeply  believes that such noble actions from government are one ofb the best confidence building measure where not only common men  of North east, but even insurgent groups and their members can now think and can join the mainstream in the broader objective of peace,Progress and Prosperity.

SSSC commends the role of R N Ravi for reflecting his  heartly commitment towards stability in north east and for standing towards people of north east. Being an interlocutor for these talks that he did able to bring  successfully  both the parties under one roof of National peace and non violance with joining hands each other.

With all these best wishes and congratulations, SSSC appeals once again to the government of India to work towards in regard to  repeal of AFSPA.

 SSSC convener Ravi Nitesh said that though the move is a welcome step but without repealing AFSPA,  all of these talks towords a productive solution and will not be proved as the permanent positive output.

 In fact, no restrictions or cut in unconstitutional powers of military is actually a threat, not less than the threat of insurgents in north east states. It is  therefore hoped that from Look east to now Act East, has to move ahead with Understanding East. Without understanding issues, actions will not be as fruitful as it would be It,has seen that how despite being on hunger strike since last 15 years, Irom Sharmila has not been able to get importance by government as  even despite her repeated kind she could not able to get any chance to meet him. She is a person who has been  following  a non violent and democratic path since more than a decade for her demand to repeal AFSPA. Despite her worldwide popularity and voice and support of human rights organisations across the globe, government of India  has not  taken any step  yet. Moreover, her fast has largely been ignored. Will it not give a signal that non violence and democratic ways are loosing their grip in present regime of India? Government of our Incredible India  need to rethink on this peacefuln ,truthful and non violant  fast more seriously and to act immediately in this regard on the eve of the celebration of 68th Indian Independence.
