Imphal, June 13: All Manipur United Club Organisation (AMUCO) is all set to observe “Protest Day” tomorrow to recall the day of signing cease fire agreement between the Government of India and the NSCN-IM with the clause ‘without territorial limit’ which led to the burning of Manipur in June 2001.
Popularly known as ‘Bangkok declaration’, the then interlocutor of India Government K. Padmanabhiah while signing the peace agreement with Th. Muivah, General Secretary of NSCN-IM, on June 14, 2001 agreed to extend the cease fire agreement without territorial limit. The deal led to unprecedented outcry and violent protest resulting to the burning of various government offices , political party’s offices and also the Manipur Legislative Assembly. As per record, 23 persons lost their lives during the uprising. The government of India finally dropped the word ‘Without territorial Limit” and decided to restrict the cease fire with the state of Nagaland.  
Interesting the signing of the agreement took place a day after the then Defence Minister of India, George Fernande , assured the people of Manipur that no such extension of cease fire between the NSCN-IM and the GOI will be extended in the state in a public meeting organized at GM hall Imphal.
Speaking to media AMUCO said that the organization still stands for the integrity of the state and will not compromise to the territorial issue of the state.
It appeals people to stand united so that the similar thing do not repeat again.
