Imphal, June 14: All Manipur United Club Organisation (AMUCO) today observed 15th Protest Day at Kwakeithel market shed. The day is being observed as a mark of protest to the signing of the peace agreement between the government of India and the NSCN _IM on this day in 2011 at Bangkok at which the India government agreed to extend the cease fire agreement between the government of India and the NSCN-IM without territorial limit. The signing of the peace deal by extending the cease fire without territorial limit is considered as an attempt to distort the territorial integrity of the state by AMUCO. As a mark of protest, large number of AMUCO Volunteers including its president Dr. Y Khuman and Advisor Th Iboyaima, who is completing 100 years of age in the coming years also took part.
Mention may be made that the signing of the peace deal between the two entities to extend the cease fire without territorial limit took place a day after the then Defence Minister George Fernandez of the NDA government of that time promised the people of the state that nothing such will be agreed by the India government during  apublic meeting held at GM hall Imphal.
Following the signing of the agreement, Manipur was put in fire with almost all the government offices and political party offices burnt down by the people of the state. Even the State Assembly Secretariat was burnt down by the angry agitators. During the mass uprising at least 23 people lost their lives. Finally unable to bear the protest of the people the India Government finally withdraw the three words “without territorial Limit’ in the cease fire extension on July 27.
President of AMUCO, Y Mani Khuman while speaking to media persons recalled the attitude of the then government of India and recalled the words that the then Home Minister LK Advani had stated mocking the peoples’ movement. He said Advani had stated that the peoples’ movement of that time will not change the decision of the India Government.
