Imphal, April 12,

Proscribed group Revolutionary People’s Front (RPF) requested the people  of the state to pay floral tribute to the martyrs who had laid down their live for the cause of the motherland on April 13.
In a press statement, the RPF paid salute to all the  ‘martyrs’ who had laid down their lives for the cause of the motherland on the occasion of Athoubasinggi Numit, the outfit observed on every April 13 to commemorate the Battle of Kodompokpi.
The outfit also appealed the people to light lamps at the gates of each and every household in the evening.
One ideal which all the people should espouse on this historic day is ‘heroes sacrifice, revolution marches forward’, it asserted.
April 13 is a day of remembering and honouring not only the PLA fighters and leaders but also all other martyrs who have laid down their lives for the cause of Manipur’s freedom, the statement said.
Since September 25, 1978, the PLA has been waging war against the government of India.
The Battle of Kodompokpi of April 13, 1982 was such fierce battle that late Kunjabihari fought to the last breath rather than surrendering to the ‘enemy’ even though his body was burning and  where many other PLA leaders and fighters fought to the last breath, the statement added.
The objective of RPF and PLA is to establish an independent and progressive State in Manipur after bringing an end to the alleged colonial rule, it said.
It further called upon all Manipuris settled in different parts of the world to focus their attention and energy to the ongoing liberation movement.
The outfit also appealed to all the people not to organise any entertainment programme on April 13 .
