On 10th October 2013 Assistant Professor Dr. Hanjabam Shukhdeba Sharma was assaulted by Professor Moirangthem Mani, Director, Academic Staff College, Manipur Central University during the 19th Orientation Programme of the ASC.
The assault was sparked off when Shukhdeba had an altercation with the programme coordinator O’Brien to ensure power supply to run power point projector. The browbeating altercations went ahead to the extent of Shukhdeba raising some sensitive questions regarding the transparency of the authority in appointing O’Brien to the post of coordinator.

“Lei-Ingkhol is our homeland. We are born here and we will die here,” said an elderly Ahanthem Ibomcha (who is no more). “For five decades my life is built around the village for survival and security,” lamented handicapped leper Matumbi. “The rich and powerful, to meet their selfish ends, are mercilessly adding to the burden of the weaker.”
Those were some of the voices when we started protesting the Manipur government’s announcement of April 20, 2005 to acquire our village Lei-Ingkhol, located on a hillside about 5 km from Imphal.

Campaign for Peace & Democracy condemned the forced eviction perpetrated by the Government of Manipur in Sangakpham area on 13 May 2013. The act fully reflected the use of colonial Land Acquisition Act 1894 to serve the capital interest of contractors (including the owners of excavators) and bureaucratic manipulation.

“Let life be dead, but death must not be allowed to live” - Marx
Revolutionary Democratic Front (RDF) condemns the Indian government in the strongest possible terms for hanging Mohammad Afzal Guru at Tihar Jail this morning in a dastardly manner.
The process of his arrest, trial, his sentencing by the lower court and the upholding of the death sentence by the Supreme Court, the rejection of his petition to the president, denial of his right to a judicial review of this rejection, and finally his secret hanging – all point towards the farcical nature of Indian judiciary and the complicity of the entire present political system in persecuting political dissidents.
