Imphal, May 19:

The Koireng-led UNLF Central Committee has extended revolutionary honors to UNLF/MPA fighters, deceased leaders and functionaries, and all those who sacrificed their lives during the liberation movement aimed at restoring the lost sovereignty of Manipur.
In a statement of the rebel group the Central Committee also honoured all men and women who were killed while defending against attacks by armed Kukis supported by the ‘Mayang administration’ since May 3, 2023. The message emphasized the importance of remembering the sacrifices of these brave individuals and urged party members to draw inspiration from the martyred souls to carry forward the movement.
According to the Committee’s message, the Koireng led UNLF/MPA has been pursuing the liberation movement since its inception, aiming to establish an egalitarian society where people can live independently with dignity and self-sufficiency by restoring Manipur’s lost sovereignty, which was taken by India on October 15, 1949, through a forcible merger.
Koireng led UNLF/MPA fighters have lost their lives at the hands of the enemy (IOF) during the liberation movement, while many are still living with disabilities due to torture inflicted by the IOF. Intense attempts have been made over the past three to four years to uproot the outfit by a group that has deviated from the liberation movement in collusion with the Indian government and state government.
“India is allegedly trying to portray the long liberation movement of Manipur as an ‘ethnic war’ by allowing armed Chin-Kuki groups from Ava (Myanmar) to exploit the political crisis in the neighboring country, along with the Kukis already settled in Manipur, to wage war against the Meitei people. Amidst the ongoing conflict, India, with nearly one lakh forces deployed in Manipur, is devising a strategy to uproot the liberation movement by targeting revolutionaries and village volunteers who counter the Chin-Kuki groups”, the statement said.
The Committee highlighted the resilience and patriotism of revolutionaries who have emerged despite numerous challenges and urged the people to remember this spirit. It also stressed the need for revolutionaries to unite the people and avoid acting solely on emotion, recognizing the covert attempts by India to divide Manipur.
A statement issued by the UNLF Central Committee alleged that the ongoing Kuki aggression is a proxy war of India, with Kukis being used as pawns in the conflict. The Committee emphasized the need to develop the UNLF as a progressive party and to take advantage of the situation to unite the people against external divisive forces.
