Imphal, June 18:

The Manipur Naga Peoples’ Front has condemn the decision of the present king of Manipur Leisemba Sanajaoba to contest the lone Rajya Sabha seat from Manipur as a BJP candidate.
In a statement the outfit said that Manipur kingdom which had gone down from history of more than 2000 years with many defeats and victories in battles by many kings had never surrendered deliberately in the hands of other nation. The infamous Merger Agreement of September 21, 1949 at Shillong was done under threat by which Maharaja Bodhachandra signed. Manipur has had its own constitution already in 1947 whereas Indian constitution only in 1950. Though Manipur joined Indian union, all the King responsibilities in traditions, customs and rituals for the people of the state are all vested in the hand of the king.
The king can do no wrong. Nowhere in the world would any one find that, the king enters into an active electoral politics or becomes a servant in the government establishment. Leisemba Sanajaoba must be thinking that, if the descendants of the Scindias in Madhya Pradesh and the descendants of Maharaja Hari Singh of Jamu & Kashmir can become Minister. Chief Ministers and MPs why can’t he do. All the odd 500 to 600 princely state of India become Indian states by conquest or consent peacefully. Whereas, the case of Manipur was under duress made to sign the Agreement. Yet, the king of Manipur was entitled various privilege unlike other princely state rulerd. Even if the king of Manipur was made to join the Union of India from the day one of the infamous Merger Agreement. The people of Manipur started denouncing the merger agreement and the war against this is still continuing now.
