Imphal, June 3: United Committee Manipur (UCM) marked its 16th foundation day today at its Lamphel office.
Elangbam Johnson, President of UCM; Kh Chingkhei, President of IPSA; S Ratankumar, President of UPF; Medum Maring, President of NIPCO; Ph Sakhi Leima, President of AMKIL; Yumnamcha Dilipkumar, President of PANDM; Ksh Somorendro, President of ACOAM-Lup and Y Leirikleima, President of KANGLAMEI presided over the function as presidium members.
Addressing the gathering, Johnson said that the framework agreement between the NSCN (IM) and Central Government which was signed on 3 August, 2015 has been carried out hurriedly without any materials inside considering the health condition of late Chairman of NSCN (IM) Isak Chishi Swu.
Till today, the Central government has not revealed the details of the framework agreement. The Central government could not bypass the Manipur Government for signing an important agreement with NSCN (IM).
In consultation with scholars and intellectuals, UCM has submitted a six-point declaration specifying the actual territorial boundaries of the state of Manipur to the central government, he added.
UCM has also proposed for a talk with Central government in this effect. However, no response has been received from the side of the Centre so far.
The President of UCM also appealed all to work together and unite as a single force in the ongoing movement for the implementation of Inner Line Permit System in Manipur.
The anti-ILPS campaigners, who have been staging protest demonstrations at the national capital must stop portraying Manipur in a bad light while threatening the communal harmony of the people of Manipur.
Demand for ILP is attainable; but lack of co-operation among the different communities has been posing an impediment in achieving the people’s will to implement a permit system to protect the ethnic people and regulate the alarming influx in Manipur.
While expressing his concern over the recent incidents of internal conflict amongst the communities, Johnson said that some people are taking political advantage of the prevailing situation of the society.
He appealed all to maintain peace and harmony in the state and stop playing politics out of communal dissonance, ascribing the present situation of Nungei to the failure of the state government to act on time, adding that the persons initiating the confrontation should be sought out and given due punishment as per the law of the land while lamenting the fact that the issues plaguing the society has increased in intensity and seriousness over the years and should be solved with the cooperation and support from all quarters and communities unitedly. Former UCM President and present President of PANDM Yumnamcha Dilipkumar said that the uncharacteristic silence of the state government is most unfortunate and that the feeble  acceptance of the state government on the claims of territories by different tribal groups of the state is unfortunate ans should be prevented.
