44th Foundation Day of KCP: Central Committee greets people

IT News
Imphal, April 12:

The Central Committee of the Kangleipak Communist Party (KCP) extends greetings to the people of Kangleipak and the WESEA region on the occasion of the group’s 44th Foundation Day, slated for April 13. Additionally, the Committee pays homage to both the people and revolutionaries who have sacrificed their lives for the cause.
In a message marking the 44th foundation day, the Central Committee reflects on Kangleipak’s historical significance as an independent Asiatic nation, once known as Mackley. It recalls a time when the political boundaries of Mackley extended far and wide, subject to the influence of ruling powers. Following the signing of the Anglo Manipuri Treaty in 1762 with the British, Mackley’s boundaries were delineated, encompassing Assam to the North, China to the East, Bengal to the South, and Roshaan and Burma to the West. These boundaries were referenced in various historical documents, including the General Gazetteer Abridged London (1796), Alexander Mackenzie’s “The North East Frontier of India,” and works by R. B. Pemberton, Sir Johnston, and John Arrowsmith.
The expansive territorial boundaries of Manipur have undergone significant changes throughout its history. According to a statement by the Central Committee of the Kangleipak Communist Party (KCP), several historical events have contributed to the shrinking of Manipur’s territory.
One notable instance occurred after the Treaty of Yandaboo in 1826 when Manipur’s Kabo Valley, spanning 22,210 square kilometers, was leased to Burma for Sicca 500, equivalent to approximately Rs. 8000 crore today.
Following the Anglo-Manipur War of 1891, the British administration divided Manipur into hill and valley areas. Upon India’s independence in 1947, Manipur gained independence and established a democratic government under the Manipur Constitution Act of 1947. However, in 1949, Manipur was merged into the Indian Union.
A significant event in 1953 saw then-Prime Minister of India, Jawaharlal Nehru, meeting with Prime Minister of Burma, U Nu, in Imphal. Subsequently, Manipur’s boundary was further reduced to just 22,327 square kilometers.
These historical instances highlight the complex geopolitical changes that have shaped Manipur’s territorial landscape over the years.
The Kangleipak Communist Party (KCP) provided additional details regarding the sequence of events that commenced on May 3, 2024. Describing the unfolding situation as a crisis, the KCP characterized it as a proxy war orchestrated by Indian authorities against the people of Manipur through the utilization of narco-terrorists.
According to the KCP, the crisis began with a series of incidents that have since escalated, posing a grave threat to the stability and security of Manipur. The party alleges that Indian authorities are employing narco-terrorists as instruments of destabilization, aiming to undermine the autonomy and rights of the Manipuri people.
This characterization suggests a strategic use of illicit drug trade and terrorism tactics by external forces to manipulate and control the socio-political landscape of Manipur. Such actions not only endanger the safety and well-being of the local populace but also challenge the integrity of Manipur’s governance and sovereignty.
By framing the crisis as a proxy war, the KCP seeks to draw attention to the broader geopolitical dynamics at play and highlight the vulnerability of Manipur to external interference and manipulation. This narrative underscores the need for vigilance, solidarity, and concerted action to safeguard the interests and rights of the people of Manipur against such nefarious tactics.
The armed group additionally addressed the systematic destruction of Manipur’s economy, attributing it to the planning by the Government of India during the demonetization period and the COVID-19 pandemic. They highlighted the detrimental impact of these measures on the livelihoods and economic stability of Manipur’s populace.
Furthermore, the group detailed the Geo Strategic Kaladan Mission, emphasizing the Government of India’s strategic objectives and their implications for the region. They also alleged that the Indian government sought to exploit Kuki narco-terrorists to target the Meitei people, thereby exacerbating ethnic tensions and insecurity within Manipur.
The armed group questioned whether the Government of India had achieved its objectives with the announcement of the election, noting a cessation of hostilities from the Kuki terrorists towards the Meitei people. This inquiry suggests a critical examination of the government’s motives and actions, as well as their potential impact on the ongoing conflict dynamics in Manipur.
