Imphal, June 08: All Manipur United Clubs' Organisation (AMUCO) has categorically stated that there is no question of organising the June 18 programme for paying homage to those who made the supreme sacrifice for the cause of territorial integrity of Manipur with �another group� at Kekrupat.

In a statement, AMUCO said although it respects the sentiments of the family members of the martyrs who expressed their desire for observing June 18 together at Kekrupat, it cannot accept the offer at all.

AMUCO had tried its best, with the support of the people, to preserve the sanctity of Kekrupat where the mortal remains of the 18 martyrs have been put to rest.

But the �other� group has defiled it, the statement said, adding that like in the previous years AMUCO will observe Protest Day on June 14 and Unity Day on June 18.Besides conducting wall poster campaign, a discussion session on the theme of Imperialist globalisation and crisis of Nationalism would be organised at MDU Hall to mark the Protest Day on June 14, the AMUCO statement said.
