Imphal, Jan 23: A conglomerate of rebel groups operating in North East India called United National Liberation Front of WeSEA (UNLFW) has called boycott of the Indian Republic Day of January 26.
“The UNLFW appeal to every freedom loving people of the region to refrain from partaking in any manner during the celebrations of  “Indian National Days” particularly the upcoming Indian Republic Day on 26 January 2018 in our ancestral homeland which the UNLFW boycotts for 24 hours throughout WeSEA region”, a statement issued by Chairman of the body, Lt. Gen (rtd) Khongo Konyak said.
The statement further said that western South-East Asian region had never been a part of India historically, politically, racially and culturally. Until the advent of Indian neo-colonization, the people of the region had been living peacefully, sovereign and independent as had been since time immemorial.
However, since 1947 the Government of India had systematically been waging various forms of war to destroy the history, culture and rights of the ethnic people of the region besides un-mindful exploitations of the land and resources of the ethnic WeSEA people, it added.
Heavy influxes of illegal foreign immigrants to the region to supplant and dominate the indigenous ethnic races economically and politically is being term as a deliberate policy of the GoI since 1950 by the UNLFW. It said this issue has become the biggest threat to the very existence of livelihood of the WeSEA people.
“Against the multi-pronged colonizing policies and programs of the Indian Government and with no guarantee to safeguard the ethnic identity and rights anywhere within Indian Union or Indian Constitutional framework, the WeSEAN people had been forced to defend her ancestral homeland and to restore the age-old Sovereign independent existence”, the statement added.
It said that various liberation movements have been enticed to get assimilated to Indian constitutional bound and corresponding Accords on the pretext of peace, progress and development.
“Agreements have been arrived at but to no avail the issue persists and peace remains a far cry.The indigenous people of WeSEA remains highly discriminated in India in all the spheres of life including social, political or economic and India continues to use her terror agencies including her Army, para-military and Intelligent wings to terrorize, hunt, arrest and kill the WeSEAN people indiscriminately and randomly without any regards for universal human rights or rules of engagement”, the statement said.
