The opposition, Manipur Peoples Party (MPP) on Wednesday criticized the NSCN (IM) for creating “unrest” in the north eastern region particularly in Manipur during its campaign for Naga integration.
MPP president Dr Nimachand Luwang speaking at a public meeting cum sit-in demonstration where thousands of MPP leaders and workers attended said the tension brewing in Manipur was what the NSCN (I-M) and its leader Muivah wanted.

“The Centre had given the permission to enter Muivah in the state under the agreement,” Nimaichand charged adding that until and unless the agreement was declared invalid the chaotic situation of Naga integration issue will exist in the state. Senior most legislature and veteran leader of MPP, O Joy also present at the briefing demanded that speaker of the Manipur Legislative Assembly to resolve the matter of resignations tendered by seven MLAs of hills at the earliest.
He also talked about fund raising activities of the NSCN (I-M) and said that the annual budget of outfit was 150 million dollar to 200 million dollar and the outfit raised the fund through drug trafficking, looting banks and extortion from the people.
Joy also said that twenty percent of the fund was raised through drug trafficking while 50 percent from road tax imposed on the highways in the state.
Leaders of the Manipur People Party (MPP) speaking at the meeting said that the party has formed a monitoring committee to look into the peace talk between NSCN (I-M) and Government of India and reiterated its commitment to safeguard the territorial integrity of the state.
The meeting also discussed the chaotic situation of the state in the wake of proposed visit of Muivah and breakdown of government functioning due to the ongoing cease work strike of the employees of the state government.
MPP also welcomed the ruling of the Gauhati High Court with regard to banning of imposition of economic blockade on the national highways.
