Armed rebel group, National Revolutionary Front Manipur (NRFM) announces general strike in Manipur and the North-East states of India on 15th August, 2019, through media by its information and publicity secretary Sanajaoba Meitei. Stating that India’s 73rd years of independence is not related to Manipur and the North-east states as the British taught India’s riches have forcefully taken over the small princely states, forming the Indian union today. Furthermore, the people of Manipur, Nagaland, Mizoram, Assam, Arunachal Pradesh, Meghalaya, Tripura, Kamtapur, Jammu & Kashmir, Jharkhand, Chhattisgarh, Andhra Pradesh, Orissa and Punjab have been fighting for freedom against the Indian State. To suppress this resistance, the Indian state has imposed AFSPA as an experiment in the North-East states and Jammu & Kashmir, which has allowed the Indian security to turn into terrorist, which is evident as said by the supreme court of India that AFSPA has allowed the Indian security to roam the streets of Manipur independently with more than 2000 cases of fake encounters. In the present, the Government of India is stepping forward to erase the marginalized communities of Jammu & Kashmir and the North- East states as a clear challenge to the super power of Pakistan and China. It is time for the culturally similar indigenous people of the North-East to come together. With the AFSPA obstructing us front and the UAPA cornering us from the back, we should not remain hopeful that there will be Meiteis, Nagas and Kukis, etc. We should no longer be passive and remain content of having talks with the Government of India. To bring an end to a revolt, we must know the root cause of it. We, the people of North-East must be fighting the divide and rule policy of India, leaving behind our old belief that India will sympathize with the indigenous people. In oppose to the forceful annexation of Manipur and the North-East states, NRFM has called a general strike on 15th August, banning the celebration of 73rd years of Indian independence.
