Hmar Martyrs’ Trophy Ogranising Board 
Dated: Oct 18, 2016

 Introduction: The Hmars are indigenous tribe among the scheduled tribe recognised by the Constitution of India in 1951. Their culture, folklore and way of living shows that they have an unique identity since time immemorial. Their geographical inhabitant covers mainly the North Eastern region of India. The Hmars are hard working and peace loving people who contributed their talents and man power resources through various discipline viz Civil, Police, Foreign Services and Central secretariat of India. There are innumerable numbers of the Hmars who are faithfully contributed their services in almost all the state government services of India as well as in multinational company.

Hmar Martyrs’ Day (16th May):  Inspite of the Hmar people contribution, the government of India as well as government of North Eastern states are reluctant to redress the grievances of the Hmar who are totally neglected of infrastructure development in their areas. Anyone could understand this fact if they happen to travel the Hmar areas in the north eastern region of India. After repeated appeal, prayers and democratic protest made by various civil organizations, more subjugation and suppression of their rights and dues are the only replied they got. This led to more intense agitation by way of taking local made arms to defend them self. Rather than understanding the plight of the Hmars, they are tagging as an arms group who are indulge in illegal activist against the state government especially in Mizoram, Manipur and Assam. This led to the lost of many innocent lives of the Hmars in their movement to uplift their society and dominated areas. Fortunately, due to the intervention of the Central government, Suspension of Operation (SoO) had been signed with the State government which resulted to lower rate of violence and lost of innocent lives. But neither amicable solution nor infrastructure development has been implemented especially in the Hmar areas till date. It is a hope for the Hmars that this step motherly treatment made by various state governments of the North Eastern States of India be a thing of the past at the earliest.

Hmar Martyrs’ Trophy Ogranising Board (HMARTOB):  In order to find an amicable solution of the Hmar Movement, the Hmar Inpui (Hmar Supreme House) consisting of 9 Hmar active organization affiliated to the HMAR INPUI viz. Hmar Youth Association (HYA), Hmar Students Association (HSA), Hmar Women Association (HWA), Hmar Artist Association (HAA), Hmar Christian Leaders Forum (HCLF), Hmar Literature Society (HLS), Hmar Art & Culture (HAC), Hmar Peoples Convention(Democratic)-(HPCD), Hmar National Union (HNU) set up a committee named HMARTOB to mark and show respect to the departed souls of the Hmars who laid down their lives for the upliftment of the Hmar society . In connection with this, 16th May of every year is celebrated as HMAR MARTYRS’ DAY.

In order to find more democratic way of movement as well as to inculcate a healthy environment among the new generation, the HMARTOB organized STATE LEVEL HMAR MARTYRS’ FOOTBALL TOURNAMENT at Saikawt Playground, Churachandpur since 2003. Marathon race, shot-put and various indigenous games are also included in the discipline of the games.  In this year 2016, the 13th STATE LELVEL HMAR MARTYRS’ FOOTBALL TOURNAMENT league match opening day was kick-off on the 12th April, 2016 and the grand final match will be play on the 16th May, 2016. The tournament is register and recognised by the Churachandpur District Sports Association (CDSA), Churachandpur District, Manipur. 32 clubs from the North East States were participated in this tournament and watch by more than 10000 fans every day. It is expected that more than 20000 will watch the grand finale which falls on the 16th May, 2016 at Saikawt Playground, Churachandpur, Manipur. Group Cultural Dance consisting of 500 dancers, various top Artiste from various communities will enthrall the gathering, Marathon race and final match of indigenous games will also be an entertaining part on this day.

Rengkai (Inpui): The Hmar tribe slammed the Manipur government and Manipur University for failing to address the concerns of the tribal students over the quota issue which affects not just the community but the entire tribal population in the state.

In a statement released on Tuesday, the Hmar Inpui, which is apex body of the Hmars, said that it was appalled by the attitude of the state government and the university officials.

"The pathetic attitude of the University authorities and the devisive declaration of the MU VC in-charge Professor Amar Yumnam that the reservation norms chosen by the Academic Council meeting on October 8 would be followed in Manipur University for the academic session 2016-17 which is in direct contravention to the Central Government directive has made an already fragile situation worse," the organization said.

The university's Academic Council had decided to cut the tribal students' quota from 31% to 7.4% from the 2017.

Below is the complete press release of the Hmar Inpui.


25th October 2016

The Hmar Inpui (Hmar Supreme House), an apex body of all Hmar Civil Society and Community Based Organisations has been observing the current Scheduled Tribe (ST) Reservation issue in Manipur University hoping against hope that the University authority in collaboration with the Government will bring an amicable end to the impasse by following the Central Government and University Grants Commission directives to implement the CEI (Reservation in Admission) Amendment Act 2012. This hope has however been dashed by recent events, the latest being the violent suppression of agitating tribal students in front of the Manipur University (MU) gate on 24th October 2016 and the actions of the Vice-Chancellor (VC) in-charge.

The apathetic attitude of the University authorities and the derisive declaration of the MU VC in-charge Professor Amar Yumnam that the reservation norms chosen by the Academic Council meeting on October 8 would be followed in Manipur University for the academic session 2016-17 which is in direct contravention to the Central Government directive has made an already fragile situation worse. As if this was not enough, the order of the VC in-charge to go ahead with admission process for Academic Session 2016-17 from 24th of October without any resolution in the reservation impasse have no other interpretation other than being scornful to the legitimate demand of the tribal students.

The Hmar Inpui condemns in the strongest terms the attitude of not only the University authority but the behaviour of some of the state forces to insidiously instigate and coaxed the otherwise peaceful but emotionally charged agitators to committing certain ‘mistakes’ so as to warrant a violent suppression. It is most unfortunate that the State Police, meant to keep the peace, are now skilful emotional manipulators just so they can exhibit their marksmanship and using agitators to hone their shooting skills! Arbitrary and unwarranted subjugation of a democratic voice in exercise of a democratic rights has now become a trademark of the State Government and unfortunately copied by the unlikeliest institution- A Central University which is supposed to be a centre of positive learning and the centre-point for imbibing democratic and responsible governance.

The Hmar Inpui strongly question why the state government and Manipur University authorities are so hell-bent in avoiding amicable negotiations and dialogues with agitators- past and present but at the same time so keen in the deaths of peaceful dialogues and negotiations.

There have been numerous debates on why the hills and valleys should not be separated or vice-versa. There have been countless seminars, consultations, conferences, workshops, et al discussing why Manipur is afflicted with inter-ethnic trust deficits. Why should there not be an acute trust deficit? Why should the tribal students of Manipur not be apprehensive about the intent and intention of the Manipur University authorities when they are deprived of even our legally sanctioned basic rights to free and fair education? When even such basic rights are blatantly hijacked, then it is no wonder that the state is inundated with tensions, mistrusts, fights, highly controversial Bills and Acts that infringe upon the rights of the tribal people both covertly and overtly. When justice cannot be served to just a few, justice served to the whole is just another harsh belie.

When certain radical sections of the University, probably influenced by some clandestine agendas, dares to dare the directive of the Central Government or the legal rights of a certain section of the people with impunity, it is no wonder the State is in this self-created predicament. For the shallow, short-sighted and selfish actions of a few individuals, it appears Manipur and its beautiful peoples are doomed to live a life of strife, distrust and painful separations.

The Hmar Inpui has seen through the devious plans and intentions of the University authorities with perhaps the tacit support of some communal groups and individuals. As such, we fully support the current movement spearheaded by the All Tribal Students’ Union Manipur (ATSUM) and its constituent members. For the sake of all, the Hmar Inpui also appeals to all that this movement and its support for it are never with a communal intent but rather for stronger distributive justice, equality and democratic principles. We also appeal to the Manipur University authorities to come to their senses and take positive steps urgently to avoid any further unfortunate incidences. Let them remember that their stubborn short-sighted and selfish actions have done enough harm and will likely do more irreparable harm to the tribes per se and to the people of Manipur in general.

Saikot, October 16,2016: The Saikot Sub-Division Demand Committee (SDDC) has called for total bandh in Tuithaphai valley (Churachandpur town) on October 19 from 6 am to  5 pm after the Manipur government “failed” to appoint and depute SDO staff to their place of posting.

In a statement, the SSDC said that they had submitted their demand for a full-fledged SDO in Saikot to the state government on September 23 through the Deputy Commissioner of Churachandpur.

“We informed the government our sincere demand through the DC of Churachandpur District and in that letter we mentioned that unless the it fails to act on it by October 15, 2016, we would be left with no choice but to start an agitation. The government did not even reply our letter where we expressed our genuine demands,” SSDC chairman Timothy Z. Zote and SSDC secretary R. Lalkaisanga said in a statement.

 The group said that since the government “failed to our demands seriously we felt the it is only interested in vote bank politics.”

“Many in the public are also asking whether we are  no longer part of Manipur state to deserve such treatment. As a result, the SSDC is calling for total shut down in Churachandpur town on October 19 starting from 6 to 5 pm,” the leaders said.

The group also appealed to the general public to cooperate during the agitation. “We appeal to everyone to cooperate with us to avoid any untoward incidents especially from our volunteers. Those having vehicles are also requested to respect the bandh and if any incident happens it should not be taken as communal by anyone,” the SSDC said, adding that it has instructed activists to strictly impose the strike.

“The public must be ready to meet any consequences from the state machinery as the government’s attitude shows it never cared about our development and welfare,” they added.

The SSDC’s agitation programme has been endorsed the leadership of major communities like the Kuki Inpi, Zomi Council, Hmar Inpui, Vaiphei Peoples Council, Mizo People Convention and the Hmar National Union. “Student organisations are also lending their moral support to our movement,” the group said.

The SDDC also said that the agitation is non-communal and it is for the “benefit of everyone” in Churachandpur District. “Our demand is for development of the area and not for any specific community. As such, we are getting massive support from community leaders and we expect the public to enforce the bunch effectively,” the SSDC statement added. Churachandpur township (also called Tuithaphai) is inhabited by the Zo tribes like Paite, Hmar, Lushai-Mizo, Vaiphei, Simte, Gangte, Kuki,  Zou and other smaller communities.

The press, water supply,electricity,medical, religious activities, airport drop & pick along with students’ transportation would be left out of the bandh.

“However, those schools within Saikot SDO area would be closed indefinitely from October 19. And if the government thinks that we are not serious, we are ready to even go on hunger strike, and boycotting of the upcoming election,”  the SSDC leaders said.

Inpui News Service

Saikot: The Saikot Sub-Division Demand Committee (SSDC) has reiterated that its planned agitation beginning October 15 stands, unless the Manipur government fulfilled its demands with respect to a full-fledged Saikot Sub-Division Office with required staff strength.

“About 1000 people and representatives from VAs, HSA, HYA, HWA, YMA, MZP, MWA, Val Upa, SDP le SLA took part in the public meeting,” SSDC chairman Timothy Z. Zote said in a statement.

It may be noted that the SSDC had submitted a memorandum to the Chief Minister of Manipur on September 23, 2016 via the Deputy Commissioner of  Churachandpur demanding a “full-fledged Saikot Sub-Divisional Office” with all departments and posting of staff.

The leaders also said that they are planning to hold a press event at the state capital in Imphal and if the “need arise, we are ready to approach the Central government.”

(2) Boycott of Assembly Election
(3) Hunger strike
(4) Sit-in protest

The peace deal could be even better than autonomous district council, says HPC-D delegate 

Aizawl, PTI: The Mizoram government on Wednesday held second round of peace talks with its only rebel outfit - the Hmar People's Convention (Democratic) - here in the state capital.

A senior government official who was involved in the talks said both sides were optimistic that the final outcome of the parleys will be positive.

"The talks were held under conducive atmosphere and mutual trust," Additional Secretary of the state home department Lalbiakzama, who headed the four-member state government delegation said.

"We discussed several important issues, especially the functioning of the Sinlung Hills Development Council (SHDC)," Lalbiakzama said.

The SHDC was constituted in accordance with the accord signed between the state government and the erstwhile HPC militants in 1994. HPC(D) was formed by former underground elements who did not accept the agreement and they are demanding a Hmar Autonomous District Council under the 6th Schedule of the Constitution.

While the four-member state government delegation led by Lalbiakzama comprised Joint Secretary for home Lalhriatpuia, SP, CID (SB) Rodingliana Chawngthu and OSD (Home) David H Lalthangliana, the HPC(D) delegation was led by Lalthalien, an Imphal-based prominent church leader.

Lalthalien had earlier told PTI the talks would mainly centre around the demands of the Hmar militant outfit seeking greater autonomy and more power to the Sinlung Hills Development Council (SHDC).

"Both sides would deliberate on making the SHDC better suited for the people of the area, may be even better than an autonomous district council under the sixth schedule of the Constitution," he said.

Oct 6, 2016: The Tuivai Bridge which connects Manipur and Mizoram near Ruonglevaisuo (Tipaimukh) will soon be rebuilt, according to Inpui sources.

The bridge which was washed away by strong water currents over two decades ago was the “lifeline of the Hmar community” living in the border areas. The Mizoram-Assam border region has been totally neglected by the concerned states and people are demanding various development projects since the early 1990s. 

The estimated cost of building the bridge is Rs. 6,11,35,000.

“Union Ministry of Road Transport and Highways has issued direction to the concerned authorities to immediately begin work on reconstruction of the Tuivai Bridge on National Highway-150 (Now renamed as NH-2),” said Hmar community leaders in a joint press statement.

The issue was brought before the Central government by the Hmarram Kohran Inzawmkhawmpawl (HKI) and the Barak Valley Hmar People Bharatya Janata Party.

“The community leaders submitted their request to Union Minister for Road Transport Nitin Jairam Gadkari on August 6, 2016 and he immediately instructed officials to pursue the matter on a priority basis,” they said.

As a result, despite some “opposition” from the Chief Engineer, PWD (Highway), Mizoram, and the Mizoram government, they finally issued a statement to commence work on the bridge. 

It is not yet clear as to when the ground work will actually begin.

Rengkai (Inpui): The Hmar Students' Association has condemned the assault on Mr Issac Nungate of Sielmat by unidentified miscreants near Bata Store in Churachandpur on the night of October 2.

Mr Nungate was allegedly beaten brutally by a group of about 20 people who asked him to speak in a particular language.

Witnesses said that he somehow managed to flee from the spot and reach Sielmat where he collapsed. Mr Nungate was rushed to Churachandpur Civil Hospital and then moved to Imphal for further treatment on recommendation of doctors as the student had a head injury.

Below is the full text of the HSA Press Release

Rengkai (Inpui): The ZO Re-Unification Organisation (ZORO) has written to the Government of India highlighting the urgent need for reconstruction work on national Highway 150 which connects Manipur and Mizoram via Tipaimukh. The organization said that the road is the "lifeline of the Hmar" community living on both sides of the border.

According to a copy of the letter accessed by Inpui.com, the group urged the Central government to immediately take up the issue so that the washed away Bailey Bridge over Tuivai river be rebuilt.

Given below is the transcript of the letter.  

The Secretary to the Govt. of India.
Ministry of Road Transport and Highway (MoRTH),
Transport Bhawan,
1, Parliament Street,
New Delhi- 110001

Subject: Road Connectivity of National HighWay-02 and the reconstruction of Bailey Bridge over Tuivai River.

Reference: ZoRO Executive Committee Resolution No. C Sub-2 July 29,2016 


As you are fully aware that the erstwhile Nation Highway-150 that connects the state of Manipur and Mizoram have a bridge over River Tuivai at Tipaimukh which was constructed more than twenty years ago which have been washed away. This was, perhaps, due to Clod burst causing landslide and mud-slide that washed away the said Bridge. The absence of strategic bridge caused immeasurable hardship to the Hmar community Living in the adjoining area of Mizoram and Manipur.

The delay in re-construction of the said bailey Bridge over river Tuivai at Tipaimukh retarded the place of development of the area heavily and causing hardship and impeding all round development of the area. With reason best known to the concerned authority the Highway is re-named as National Highway-02 with no worth with improvement and leaving the most Bailey bridge still not re-constructed.

Portion of the Highway that lies within the jurisdiction of the state of Mizoram have been maintained and the people of Mizoram are enjoying the benefits of this particular National Highway in spite of the road yet to cross Tuvai River to go to Manipur.

On the Manipur sate side the last portion, say about 100kms in length is in need of urgent major repair. Unfortunately, the Government of Manipur an Agency for the Highway, have been a silent spectator, doing to little to relief of the plight of the people living in Tipaimukh Sub-Division area.

This Highway is main life line for the neglected masses of the remote corner of Churachandpur District, Manipur State. In spite of a number of representations by the people Tipaimukh Sub-Division yielded no result so far. The People lost hope now.

May we therefore request your good office to consider the urgent need of re-construction of Bailey Bridge over Tuvai River at Tipaimukh so that essential commodities may be transported to Tipaimukh Sub-Division from Mizoram state and vice versa. It is worth to mention that this particular Highway will be the shortest route between Imphal (Manipur state) and Aizawl (Mizoram state). That is to say the Distance on the existing state Highway that runs via Sinzawl would be shortened by at least 60 kms.

May I request your good office to start preparation of 2-laning of this particular Highway the benefits of which needs no further emphasis and to earnestly request to instruct concern authorities to immediately take up re-construction of Bailey bridge over river Tuivai at Tipaimukh.

Sincerely Yours,


General Secretary.
