YMA extends financial aid to Chin-Kuki-Mizo People in Violence-Hit Manipur

Aizawl, 7 May (Zoram News):  In response to the widespread violence in Manipur, the Central Young Mizo Association (YMA), the largest non-political apex body, has agreed to extend financial aid of Rs 5 lakh to the affected Chin-Kuki-Mizo people residing in the state.

At an emergency meeting held on May 5, the YMA urged people to come forward and donate money, even through UPI services, to help the affected communities. The YMA's decision to provide financial assistance to the victims is a much-needed relief in the wake of clashes between tribal and non-tribal groups that have led to widespread violence and destruction of property in the state.

While the situation remains tense, heavy deployment of paramilitary forces has helped quell protests that had turned violent in the state. Mobs had set fire to hundreds of buildings, including schools and churches, and even burnt down big retail outlets like Bazaar India. As a result, as many as 15,000 to 20,000 victims were successfully evacuated to safe locations.

The paramilitary forces, comprising 14 companies of RAF, CRPF, and BSF, were deployed to bring the situation under control. While some areas of Imphal saw mobs gathering, the police quickly dispersed them with tear gas.

In the midst of the ongoing violence and chaos, the YMA's decision to extend financial aid is a positive step towards providing much-needed relief and support to the affected communities.
