Having turned a deaf ear to the cries of the long pending legitimate demands of the All Tribal Students ’Manipur (ATSUM) by the Government of Manipur, the Union is compelled to launch an intense agitation for 38 hours w.e.f. of June 3, 2013 to of 4th June 2013 followed by a sustained agitation for 38 days under the code name (ROTO) Reckoning of the others in protest against the indifferent attitude of the GoM.

Keeping in mind the unstable social milieu on communal line and suppression of inherent Rights of the Tribal, the Union has been steadfastly spearheading tribal movement as a measure to bring peace, harmony, progress and inclusive development of all communities living in the state.
