Imphal, Aug 13,
The Kuki National Front(KNF N) in a statement stated that the outfit called total shutdown to all entire hill district of Manipur from August 14th midnight to August 15th midnight by the Kuki National Front(KNF N) to boycott the Indian Independence Day Celebration, 2018.
Giving reason for calling the total shut down and boycotting of the Indpendence Day the outfit said that the called is in response to the Central Government indifferent attitude towards the Kukis and its refusal to acknowledge the contribution/ sacrifice our fore-fathers had made towards lndia independent movement.
“ What’s with the hype surrounding the so called Framework Agreement. it is unacceptable for the Kukis and others to see New Delhi acting on the whims of a particular group while totally ignoring the genuine cause of other group. ln fact, the so called Framework Agreement is only a matter of extravagance, considering NAGALAND has been carved out for all purposes and matter. What the Central Government ought to listen to are the forgotten, the Kukis who have been denied their rightful political status in their very own Kukiland”, the statement said.
While it is our utmost desire that peace and stability prevailed amongst the people, communities and tribes. We are vehemently against the injustice done to the Kukis by the Centre which is so pre-occupied With the Framework Agreement, the statement added.
