CORCOM is the join body of the major rebel groups of the region UNLF, PREPAK, RPF and PREPAK (Pro).
In a press statement, the joint body said that there will be total shut down in all the region of Manipur (Kangleipak) from midnight today to 6 pm tomorrow as a part of the National Black Day observance. While calling upon the people of section to support the total shut down call, CorCom said that emergency services, medicals, media and fire service will be exempted from the purview of the total shut down.
Advocating their stand, the statement said that after restoring independence from the hand of the British, Manipur already had its own constitution and conducted democratic election in 1948 before India.
Despite the fact that Manipur had its own council of Minister to run the erstwhile nation, the Indian authority had forcibly made the then king of Manipur signed the controversial Merger agreement on September 21, 1949 at Shillong under duress without the consent of the people of the region and the council of Ministers.  Later on October 15, 1949 Manipur was forcibly annexed to the Indian nation, said the statement.
