Imphal, Oct 17: Reacting to Imphal Times news report about NSCN-IM proposal for 3 states formula in Naga areas, MLA N Biren today said that the dream of the NSCN-IM will never be possible.
“They can put up any demand but the question is whether it will be accepted or not, 3 state formula as mentioned in this newspaper is the demand of the NSCN-IM but it is impossible”, Biren said.
Giving reason on why it is not possible, Biren said that Manipur was not created by either India or the British and the allegations by the NSCN-IM about the division among Naga is 100% wrong.
“When Manipur was not merged to the Indian Union Mao, Tamenglong, Ukhrul etc. were all parts of the erstwhile kingdom however upto Mao it was Maipur North, and Ukhrul as Manipur east but a Tangkhul politician had had converted the region into districts based on communal line”, Biren said.
He further added that there were no issues between Manipur and Nagaland.
The journalist turn politician, who is now an MLA in the Manipur Legislative Assembly also said that When British restored Independence to Manipur on August 14, 1947, the  territorial council of the free Manipur consist of Tangkhul, Mao and other communities.
“The main agenda of the NSCN-IM is to disintegrate Manipur, but the attempt will never be succeeded as long as a single Manipuri survive”, the bold MLA reiterated.
Biren also said that NSCN-IM do not represent all the Nagas. In Nagaland, the people there rejected the outfit but the use of gun power made the people silence due to fear. Once they drop the guns they will be surely driven out from the state of Nagaland.
“That time we the Manipuri should be ready to welcome them”, the MLA said.

Evil political plans of the so called outfit NSCN (IM) and its frontal organisations are apparently hatched in Imphal area inhabited by Tangkhuls. It should be checked.

Is pre merger status demanded by valley group possible? Is kuki land demanded by the kuki possible? May be only GOI have the final say. NSCN is officially asked to put forth its demand. Implementation part may differ. Some public figure holding Govt. Post need not show their anti Govt. Stand.
