IMPHAL: Stating that the United Committee Manipur (UCM) is closely monitoring the new round of talks in Delhi involving the Government of India and NNPG including NSCN-IM which began from Friday, the committee has cautioned that the Government should not take any decision inimical to the integrity and unity of Manipur.
In a press release, UCM said that it also feels the urgency of such meeting to finalize the protracted peace talk. Nevertheless, Government of India should not take decision without prior consulting with all stakeholders and concede to the demand of a militant group that would disintegrate Manipur.
UCM cautioned that Government of India should not take any decision against the agreement and understanding reached at during the meeting involving the representatives of COCOMI, Chief Minister and Education Minister of Manipur, Home Minister Amit Shah and Minister of State for Home Affairs G. Kishan Reddy on November 25, 2019 at New Delhi. GOI should honour the agreement while settling the peace talk, it reminded.
UCM also cautioned that any organisation or individual should not express statements on social media or other platforms that would cause misunderstanding among the communities that are settled coherently in the state.
Stating that a trend of catching opportunity by spewing venom among the communities has existed for long, UCM sounded red alert for the cause of protecting unity of the state. It is considered that the so called Naga group got trapped as they fully trusted that GOI would fulfill their demands. It should be noted that the peace talk remained inconclusive they consulted with GOI before bringing a consensus among the communities first. UCM strongly feels that outsiders should not be dragged in to settle our differences , our differences should be settled by ourselves, the press release said.
