The memorandum also stated that-  of the sixteen district of Manipur, the Kukis dominated five districts. It said Chandel , Kangpokpi, Tengnouppal, Phezawl and Churanchandpur districts are dominated by the Kukis .

“As such any attempt to pamper the NSCN-IM at the cost of the Kuki ancestral land and without settling Kuki political demands will be a betrayal of Kuki aspirations and is likely to fuel violent reprisals”, the memorandum submitted to the Prime Minister cautions.

The Kuki Inpi Manipur urged the Prime Minister to seriously consider simultaneous settlement of Kuki and Naga aspirations for self governance within the Union of India so as to rule out imminent adverse repercussions of a settlement between Government of India and NSCN-IM that affects Kuki inhabited  areas.
