Manipur government has given clearance at 12 places for setting up designated camps of the Kuki militants included in the Suspension of Operation (SoO), said chief minister, O Ibobi Singh in the house of the Manipur Assembly. He also said trilateral talks on the extension of agreement for another one year would be held at the earliest before the expiry of the agreement period, the chief minister further said in the house replying to an attention motion moved by opposition independent MLA, Wungnaosing. The trilateral agreement on the Suspension of Operation (SoO) which was signed between two apex bodies, Kuki National Organisation (KNO) and United Peoples’ Front (UPF) representing 18 different Kuki militant outfits was extended for another one year on August 22, 2008. The agreement will be extended for another one year and another round of talks between the three parties, Kuki National Organisation (KNO), United Peoples’ Front (UPF), state and central governments would be held before the expiry of the agreement period, Ibobi said. Singh also informed the house that government has finalized to set up designated camps for the militants at 12 different locations including five for the outfits under Kuki National Organisation (KNO) and seven for United Peoples’ Front (UPF). Violation of the ground rules by the cadres of the outfits would be seriously dealt by the government and appropriate action would be taken up against them. The outfits would not be allowed to indulge in extortion activities and the cadres staying at the designated camps would be given Rs 2000 per month as allowance by the government. This was aimed to check extortion from the general public, the chief minister added. As soon as cadres enter the designated camps the government would pay their allowances, he added. Earlier, moving the call attention motion, opposition MLA, Wungnaosing observed that cadres maintaining cease fire were still indulging in extortion from truckers in the highway even after they entered into the cease fire agreement.
