ATSUM meets union minister

The All Tribal Students’ Union Manipur (ATSUM) called on union cabinet minister of tribal affairs Arjun Munda at his official quarter, Tughlak Road, New Delhi and apprised him of the threat and insecurity felt by the tribal people of Manipur due to ‘the illogical and illegitimate demand’ of the STDCM for inclusion of Meetei/Meitei community into ST category.
According to a DIPR report, ATSUM also submitted a memorandum to the minister pointing out the valid reasons why Meitei community should not be given ST status. After patiently hearing out the woes of ATSUM, Munda urged them to remain calm, saying that as the matter is constitutional, it will be examined minutely before any decision is made.
