Raising the issue in the Zero Hour amid sloganeering by Congress and BJD members, Daimary said bodies of the youths have not been yet cremated by their relatives and tribal students have been protesting at Jantar Mantar here for several days.

The state government has passed three bills, which are against the tribals and people were protesting, he claimed, adding that nine people were killed in the police firing on August 31 in Manipur's Churachandpur district during the agitation against the move, which the protestors felt would lead to the Tribals losing their land.

Daimary said the tribals wanted the Centre to assure them of safety and security as they are in a Minority in the state. "While Parliament is showing sympathy towards the people of Nepal and Bhutan, these Tribals of Manipur are our own brothers and our government should show sympathy towards them also," he cited.

Daimary said the Centre should send officials to talk to Tribals in the state and assure them of their safety and security.
