MNRF Swears By Hill-Plain Kinship

UKHRUL, Dec 20: The commander-in-chief (C-in-C) of Manipur Naga Revolutionary Front (MNRF) Allen alias Atai Siro has stated that MNRF was formed in March 2008 after threadbare brainstorming discussion with the like-minded persons especially for peaceful co-existence amongst all the communities living together in Manipur under the motto, ‘Unity, Independent and co-existence’.

Talking to a select group of media persons for the first time at an undisclosed location in Ukhrul district today, the C-in-C said that since time immemorial the Meiteis and other tribes, particularly the Tangkhul have closed historical links and our forefathers used to tell us many stories that relate to this undeniable fact. However, some underground organizations like NSCN/GPRN (IM) have been hell-bent on disintegrating Manipur. This is unfortunate but MNRF stand firmly against such ill-conceived policies of NSCN (IM).

The C-in’“C further said that one of the major principles of MNRF is to protect the territorial integrity of Manipur.

Under any circumstance, MNRF will not let any underground organization to break ‘Sena-Leipak’ /Manipur and MNRF would use all its resources protect the land, he pledged.

Coming down strongly against NSCM (IM), Atai said that many leaders of NSCM are born and brought up in Manipur. However, these very sons of the soil are conniving to break-up Manipur. When they are strong, they are working for another State. But when they died their bodies would be brought to Manipur.

Have NSCN (IM) ever thought about this reality? he questioned. He pointed out that NSCN first declared to the world that they are seeking sovereignty, and ‘˜nothing more, nothing less’. But it has rapidly climbed down to integration and now to demand for Statehood or Union territory. The last option may be ‘˜rehabilitation package’ from India, he mocked.
