Imphal, Dec 22: Chief Minister Okram Ibobi has flatly denied the report of center sending 400 additional para military force in the state to tackle the ongoing economic blockade in the state.
Speaking to India Today TV, the Chief Minister said that no additional force has been sent to the state by the central government.
“That is a wrong report. Even today we had a combined meeting with the Assam Rifles, CRPF and BSF. Where is that 4000 personnel?”, the India Today TV quotes the Chief Minister. The report further added that the state had received less than 10 companies of additional forces.
The Chief Minister further told that the Union Home Minister Rajnath had interfere to the creation of the 7 new revenue districts at the behest of the NSCN-IM and UNC. Okram Ibobi Singh told the news channel that he had turn down the interference saying that any authority including the Government of India cannot dictate the state government because it’s purely under the purview of the state.
Slamming the Centre for failing to rein-in the Naga insurgent group with which it signed a peace accord last year the Chief Minister said, “Immediately after UNC announced the indefinite blockade I rushed to Delhi and met Home Minister Rajnath Singh. The peace talk is between the Government of India and NSCN (IM). The state government is not involved in it. The ground rule is that the NSCN (IM) should confine (their activities) in Nagaland alone and that too in the designated camps.”
