It added that the issue of Frame Work agreement as submitted by the Parliamentary committee report  and the stand of the Indian authority which stated that there is no intrusion to the Indian territory by Myanmar government after the Survey of India team visited the controversial border pillar number 81 to 91 cannot be taken lightly.

The way the government of Manipur and the Civil Society organizations are handling is not satisfactory to the people of the state. The statement said that while acknowledging the effort of the government of Manipur to both the issue it is a matter of shame in seeing the way that the central government are treating to the government of Manipur. The rebel group said that when the Civil society organizations are voicing strong oppositions but remain silent to the issue of the Myanmar intrusion to Manipur’s boundary.

The rebel group further said that both the issue of Frame work agreement should go together and nothing as such that voicing against one issue is of value as territorial integrity is affected either by the intrusion as well as the Frame Work Agreement.
