Imphal, Feb 14:

All Manipur Working Journalists’ Union (AMWJU) organized a lecture on ‘China’s Shadow in Myanmar and Northeast India Conflict’ as part of its year-long Golden Jubilee Celebration today. The event took place at the Manipur Press Club in Imphal.
The lecture was graced by distinguished personalities, among whom were Prof. N. Lokendra Singh, the Hon’ble Vice-Chancellor of Manipur University, Bertil Lintner, a renowned journalist and author, and Bijoy Kakchingtabam, the President of AMWJU. They attended the event as the Chief Guest, Guest of Honour, and President respectively, lending their expertise and prominence to the occasion.
In his address, Prof. N. Lokendra Singh shed light on Manipur’s social transformation influenced by colonial policies, which introduced new conceptions of property and society. He emphasized the pervasive impact of global imperialist agendas post-World War II on Manipur and its neighboring regions such as Arakan and Lushei hills, attributing contemporary issues to these historical roots.
Bijoy Kakchingtabam, while introducing the esteemed author and journalist, Bertil Lintner, talked about the ongoing conflict in Manipur, stating that the discussion could offer an inclusive perspective on the matter. He highlighted the significance of understanding the dimensions of the conflict in Myanmar amidst Manipur’s continuing challenges.
The presence of Bertil Lintner, globally recognized for his insightful analysis of Southeast Asian affairs, significantly enriched the discourse on the Myanmar conflict. His comprehensive understanding of the complex dynamics between China, Myanmar, and Northeast India provided attendees with valuable insights into regional geopolitics. Throughout the lecture, Lintner delved into the intricate connections between China’s strategic interests, the conflict in Myanmar, and its implications for Northeast India. He elucidated historical backgrounds, geopolitical factors, and economic motivations driving China’s involvement in the region. Furthermore, he emphasized the necessity of adopting a nuanced approach to address emerging security concerns.
However, while the lecture did not explicitly comment on the present crisis in Manipur, it indirectly addressed the issue considering the proximity of Chinese involvement across the border. This underlined the interconnectedness of regional conflicts and the broader geopolitical landscape.
The AMWJU lecture provided a platform for informed discussions on critical regional issues, facilitating a deeper understanding of the complexities surrounding China’s influence in Myanmar and its implications for Northeast India. It underscored the imperative of informed dialogue and proactive engagement to address emerging challenges and foster regional stability.
