Pothashang News Service: Imphal, August 3, 2018: Joint Committee of UCM, AMUCO and CCSK today stormed at the residence of Rajya Sabha MP who is the BJP Manipur Pradesh president Ksh. Bhavananda, here, for allegedly keeping mum in the House while people expect negative to territorial integrity of Manipur as outcome of Framework Agreement.
The joint committee urged the representatives of Manipur should raise their voice in the ongoing parliament session so that the outcome of Framework Agreement and finalisation of Naga Peace talk would not divide Manipur.
The joint committee submitted a memorandum to the BJP MP through the general secretary of BJP Manipur Pradesh.
The ultimatum demands the MPs to raise question to get the exact answer over settlement of the Naga peace talk. They should also declare in the house that the settlement of the peace talk should not create any communal enmity in Manipur, it added.
The same ultimatum was also served to Lok Sabha MP Thokchom Meinya Singh by another group of volunteers of the joint committee. It was also submitted to Manipur PCC office.
The Framework Agreement was signed on August 3 between the NSCN (I-M) and the government of India to finalise the Naga peace talk.
The joint committee claims that according to interlocutor R.N. Ravi’ a report presented recently in both the Houses of Parliament by the standing committee on home affairs suggests “special status” for the Nagas of Manipur, Assam and Arunachal Pradesh under Article 371(A) of the Constitution.
The organisation in the committee has been expressing fear of disintegrating the state as granting of “special status” would mean creating a Naga state within states. Extension of Article 371(A) beyond Nagaland was a step towards formation of Greater Nagaland, a demand of the NSCN (I-M), according to the joint committee.
Kangleipak Students’ Association also submitted memorandum copies to MPCC and BJP Manipur Pradesh on the same cause.
The student body demanded to reveal the contents of the Framework agreement. As there is fear of disintegration in Arunachal, Assam and Manipur for a sovereign Naga state the MPs should raise their voice in the parliament to protect Manipur’s territorial integrity, demands the students’ association.
