Imphal, Oct 26: Rebel group Maoist Communist Party Manipur has claimed fierce gunbattle with the security forces at Nongpok Sanjenbam Village, Imphal East District under Lamlai Police Station in the intervening night of 24-25 October 2016. In a press statement the outfit said that the battle was not a pre-planned strike against the colonial force but a defensive one for safeguarding ourselves. The troops were sent back at different regions after completing a meeting with Standing Committee Members who are taking responsible to develop our militia to a higher level. An advance scout team who led a column of troops approaching towards Thoubal District from Imphal East District suddenly came face to face with the enemy troops stationed at their Camp compelling us to initiate a preemptive strike to protect our comrades in the rear.  The outfit further said that as it was a sudden strike they used only some sophisticated weapons and not heavy armories like RPGs or others as the security force at Sanjenbam was not their prime target. Stating that the rate of success of the Manipur Liberation Struggle for the past many decades is lesser than the endurance borne by the people of Manipur leading to a chasm between the people and the Liberation movement, MCPM draws the attention of sundry to follow strict strategy.
The statement said that there are five conditions for the success of People’s Revolution Movement, these are : (I) To re-gain back people’s support, faith and trust in the Party and their unquestionable loyalty (ii) To establish a complete working committee of the party (iii) To set up a powerful and a loyal People’s Army, (iv) To set up bases of the People’s Militia in the every strategic nook and corner of our Homeland (v) To establish self-reliable and sustainable sources of income which is not coerced or forced on the public but through generous donations from the public and also through a proper self-reliant method. If these five strategies are not maintained properly with a deep understanding, our Revolutionary Movement cannot advance or progress further, the statement added.
The statement further added that the most important fact to be kept in our mind is that in a place like Manipur which is a very small area with a very small population, and with more than a hundred thousand occupational forces, who after setting up various camps, we are living in the largest concentration camp of the modern world. It said Manipur is certainly be the most militarized zone, where torture, exploitation and inhumane treatment are meted out by a so called Democratic country called India while compare with the countries across the world.. Many thousands of Manipuri’s were killed in fake encounters under the draconian inhuman & barbaric act AFSPA, 1958, where anyone donning an uniform has the right to shoot & kill first and ask questions later. The militarization is going on at utmost level by setting up of a camp of Security Forces around the confinement of five kilometers each. Compare this to the policy adopted by the Indian Imperialist in Indian Maoist affected Red corridor, deploying only a hundred and fifty thousand paramilitary forces (as compared to Regular Armies in Manipur) in an area ten times the size of Manipur. It is an absolute strategy for the revolutionaries and especially so for the Manipur Maoist, to make a supreme sacrifice in such crucial scenario. If the Military Offensive of ours has to see any light at the end of the tunnel, this extreme sacrifice will be the guiding light. Therefore, the decisions resolved in the last convention held by the party on April 2016, is being maintained with great zeal & determination for a progressive and for advancing the national and class liberation struggle of Manipur, the statement added.
