Kanglei Yawol Kanna Lup (KYKL) is celebrating its 21st anniversary on April 25.
In connection with the occasion, Chairman of the organisation, M. Oken greets the peoples of WESEA region and all fraternal revolutionary parties of the region.
In a press statement issued to media house the leader of the outfit said that WESEA region is more or less coterminous with the so-called North East India cartographically and it is now a colony of imperialistic Indian union. The main thrust of Indian policy in this region is cultural assimilation and ethnic harmonization of the diverse and distinct peoples of WESEA with the mainland Indians, foreigners in the eyes of peoples of the region. It is nothing less than ethnocide of the communities in WESEA, bloodless genocide through assimilation.
He said the armed struggle is the response of almost all communities in this region to this form of colonialism.
“Success of this liberation struggles depend on the ability of revolutionary parties of WESEA to unite among themselves and put up a unified struggle, conducted under a comprehensive political and military strategy. History of these 60 years old armed struggles shows that without unity our struggles will remain as it has been.
Revolutionary leaders show signs of believing in this truth and they have been trying to bring about unity but with little or insignificant success.
The main obstacle on the path of unification is the clash of nationalisms prevailing at present in the region.” He added.
He further added that The first model of clash of nationalisms prevalent in this region is the clash of these two forms of nationalisms, that is, between the brands of ethnic and territorial nationalism. Another form of clash are the clashes among ethnic nationalisms. All types of clashes are manifested perceptibly in territorial claims and counter-claims.
These territorial claims and counter-claims are the tallest and largest hurdles stalling the process of unification of revolutionary parties. If the leadership cannot overcome these impediments, there is no possibility for unification. One irrefutable truth of our revolutionary politics is that if there is no unification, there cannot be victory, he added
