IMPHAL, Jul 13: Taking the first step towards the formation of a United Front of the armed organizations operating in Manipur, seven militant organizations have come together and formed a Co-ordination Committee, with two top rung leaders drawn from each organization.
President of the RPF, Irengbam Chaoren has been nominated as the Convener of the Co-ordination Committee.
The Co-ordination Committee is the fruition of a joint meeting of the seven armed groups wherein the perspectives each group held of the ‘liberation movement’ in not only the North East region but also in South East Asia were discussed threadbare.
The joint meeting attended by all the leaders of the outfits was held from July 8 to 9, said a joint statement signed by Ksh Laba (President of KCP), I Chaoren (President of RPF), N Oken (Gen Secretary of KYKL), Kh Pambei (Acting Chairman of UNLF), N Nongdrenkhomba (Chairman of PREPAK), Laangamba Luwang (Chairman of UPPK) and L Paliba (Chairman of PREPAK, Pro).
The leaders present discussed in detail the failure of all the armed groups to come together and work as one as well as the impact of the failure on the people of Manipur, said the statement.
The Co-ordination Committee is the first step towards the realization of a United Front, said the statement and added that this is among other decisions adopted during the two day conclave. The step towards a United Front was taken in view of the need for all groups to come together and wage a united struggle as well as in the face of the growing demand from the people to all the armed groups to unite as one.
Unity is now on target, said the statement and effused optimism that the coming together of all the armed outfits will go a long way in infusing a fresh lease of life to the ‘liberation movement.’
