When Manipur was flourishing as an independent Nation State more than two thousand years ago with its unique administrative set-up, customs and traditions, scripts, language as well as social norms, the notion of India as a nation has not even taken root; claims a press release of the proscribed Revolutinary People’s Front (RPF) signed by Roben Khuman- Secretary Publicity. Reiterating the fact that Manipur was forcefully annexed to India against the wishes of the King, People and the universal laws, the release states that RPF is carrying out an armed struggle against the nation to win back the independence snatched away from the people by an Imperialist nation as such an armed struggle is sanctioned and recognized by the UN Resolution 1514 (xv) of 14 Dec. 1960 Declaration on the Granting of Independence to Colonial Country and People which states that “All peoples have other right to Self Determination; by virtue of that right they freely determine their political status and freely pursue their economy, social and cultural development.” While the U.N General Assembly declared on December 12, 1974 that the Struggle of peoples under colonial and alien domination and racist regimes for the implementation of their Right to Self Determination and Independence is legitimate in full accordance with the principles of International Law & the armed conflicts involving the struggle of peoples against colonial and alien domination and racist regimes are to be regarded as  armed conflict.  The call to lay down arms of North Eastern revolutionary groups as a prerequisite to peace talks by Union Home Minister Rajnath, therefore reveals him to be an imperialist without regards for the sensibilities, customs and protocols, and that the only topic on which RPF will entertain a dialogue with India is regarding the Independence of Manipur; the release concludes.
