 There is a new twist to the recent incidents of installation of border pillars on the Indo-Myanmar boundary, including the No. 81 pillar near Kwatha Khunou village, with the District Commissioner of Tengnoupal acknowledging a lapse on the part of the authorities that led to authenticating of manipulated documents that misrepresent the international boundary between India and Myanmar in Manipur that could implicate the authorities on the Indian side and the Manipur government. The instance has been confirmed by civil society organizations and non-BJP political parties  also, the Manipur Pradesh Trinamool Congress Committee stated to the media.
Troops from Myanmar have on earlier occasions entered and patrolled the area in question without resistance from the Indian forces stationed in the area, the MPTCC said adding that vast tracts of land have been lost in the area due to this and the security forces on the Indian side have been conspicuous by their absence at these instances. The intrusions have caused a misrepresentation of the international boundary, the statement said while questioning the Indian government’s policy in the South-east Asian region , especially Myanmar, that has harmed the interests of the people in the state but has time and again appeased the Myanmarese side on the issue of territory. The BJP led state government has been a mute spectator to the goings on, the statement said claiming that the Indian government authorities had given tacit support to their state counterpart leading to the demarcation and authentication of the boundary according to claims made by the neighboring country Myanmar. The much publicized visit of Minister of state for Home Affairs Kiren Rijiju had not been sincere enough to gain the trust of the people in the state, the statement added.
