Imphal, Nov 18:

A statement by Roben Khuman, Deputy Secretary Publicity Revolutionary People’s Front (RPF) expressed sad to the death of the wife of a army officer and son.
“Sanjiv Krishan Sood, a retired Additional Director General of Border Security Force In recent ambush a mother and a child were killed, it was a very sad and unfortunate “May Their Souls Rest in Peace”, the statement said.
It added, “We had no prior knowledge of their present in that convoy. If we knew, there might be a different scenario”.
The RPF statement however is anguished to the propaganda over the incident to malign the image of their outfit.
It said PLA knows that in a battle there are collateral damages. Though as a principle of a Revolutionary fighter PLA always try to avoid harming innocent people specially women and children. Unlike Indian Army, in many occasion before PLA aborted there plan of attacking Indian Occupation Forces simply because of the present of women and children there; vivid examples at Komkeirak, Keisamthong and many more. Indian Army and Manipur police have full knowledge about those examples.
“… the militants (of Manipur) never attacked convoys at those times in order to avoid collateral damage”.
By taking that incident as an example, Indian leaders and media heroes are trying to label PLA as a terrorist and monster. It is indeed India’s general character to howl and blame others to hide their mistakes and incompetents. Instead of labelling PLA as a terrorist or extremist or monster, it is better study how and why a Commanding Officer of a Unit protected by India’s one of the finest Commando Ghatak Force was killed at a mere PLA ambush. Besides, in 1997 at Geneva, RPF had declared to abide by the Common Article 3 of the Geneva Conventions of 1949. Why India is not accepting the application of the same Common Article 3 yet? Is India Government longing for Draconian rules than Democracy, means, “Act of State Terrorism”? Then who is Terrorist or Extremist or Monster; India or RPF?
It further added that India’s think tanks and Indian Security Forces propagate about RPF and its Army PLA as a faction of UNLF. Actually, it is very wrong. RPF is a new organization formed by a few former member of RGM (Revolutionary Government of Manipur) and new recruits. Leaders and members of RGM were arrested and had been detained for many years by Government of India in Tripura. Being defeated by sugar-coated bullets of the enemy and took General Amnesty enjoying the illusion of the rehabilitation program of the then reactionary government in early 1970s. Subsequently they had forgotten the value of revolution and turn out to be pseudo and counter-revolutionary. A few members of RGM reorganize the people with a new spirit of the Marxism-Leninism Mao Zedong thought leaded the revolution of the people by organizing a new army of the people, the People’s Liberation Army in 1978 and had dissolved the then RGM.
