IMPHAL, May 28: The proscribed UNLF has categorically stated that Nagaland Chief Minister Neiphiu Rio’s visit to Senapati and the opening of the NPF unit in Manipur was only a ploy to advance NSCN-IM’s agenda of disintegrating Manipur.
After Muivah’s attempt to enter Manipur was thwarted, the NSCN-IM leader was using the Nagaland Chief Minister in pursuit of his hidden agenda, alleged the outfit.
Opening NPF unit in Manipur was a ploy to consolidate NSCN-IM’s position, asserted the UNLF in a press release issued by its Senior Publicity Officer Ksh Yoiheiba.
It was a part of Muivah’s plan to create a political space for himself once the ongoing peace talk (between NSCN-IM and the Government of India) is wrapped up.
To get complete autonomy for Nagaland out of the current peace process, people of Nagaland cannot do away with Th Muivah at the moment.
But when Nagaland gets autonomy after striking an agreement with the Government of India, people of Nagaland would not find any purpose to go with Muivah and he would not be given any foothold in Nagaland, UNLF predicted.
Th Muivah is aware of this fact. That is why; he is determined to create a political space for himself.
For that reason, Muivah has been scheming to take control of one or some districts of Manipur. The objective of his plan is to integrate at least one district of Manipur with Nagaland or create South Nagaland out of Naga dominated districts of Manipur, the UNLF asserted.
People of Manipur need to check such hidden agenda of Th Muivah and Neiphiu Rio.
The UNLF also hailed the decision of the people, political parties and the incumbent Government to oppose Neiphiu Rio’s plan as justified.
The MPA would stand firm against any one opposing the decision to bar entry of Neiphiu Rio to Manipur, it conveyed.
The people should fight collectively against conspiracies hatched by any individual or group under influence of Th Muivah to create conflicts or spark violence in Manipur.
Alleging that the situation where the fraternal indigenous communities do not share trust and brotherhood is a creation of the alien rule, the UNLF called upon the people of both Nagaland and Manipur to struggle for establishment of a united sovereign State.
Stating that the time-tested fraternal bond among the 34 different indigenous communities can never be snapped, the outfit called upon all to work for a new Manipur.
Accusing the NSCN-IM of killing hundreds of innocent Kukis in pursuit of their dream to build a Naga exclusive nation, the UNLF asserted that the effects of Th Muivah’s ethno-centric policy was felt by not only Nagas and Manipuris but also by many other smaller groups.
This also led to internecine killings among the Naga Army and between innocent Naga civilians.
After the peace talk was initiated, NSCN-IM became an implementing agency of the Government of India’s alleged policy to derail the liberation movement of Manipur and neighboring communities and also to disintegrate Manipur and sow seeds of conflict among different communities. Now NSCN-IM has roped in Nagaland Chief Minister Neiphiu Rio in the same sinister game-plan, UNLF added.
