Briefing a press conference held at Moirangkhunou Makha Leikai, L Mohen general secretary of the committee informed that the committee was created on October 23 after a meeting of the residents of the area in order to save the grazing ground.

The press conference was participated by L Dhaneshor, pradhan Moirangkhunou CP; L Birababu, retired Additional SP; M Rajen, president Moirangkhunou Grazing Ground Protection Committee; M Leima, meira paibi leader and executive member of the committee; I Ningthemjao, president Nganuleima Development Committee and N Ingocha, president KYDA.
