Centre is unlikely to allow NSCN (I-M) general secretary T Muivah to enter Manipur fearing further escalation of tension. Highly placed sources told The Assam Tribune that the issue was extensively discussed at the recent core committee meeting of the Congress party, which was also attended by Prime Minister Manmohan Singh, Finance Minister Pranab Mukherjee, Union Home Minister P Chidambaram, among others. Sources said it was decided at the meeting not to allow Muivah to go ahead with his visit because it might trigger further tension and ethnic clashes in Manipur. The question does not arise, sources said.
The meeting also discussed Union Home Secretary GK Pillai’s report and came to the conclusion to focus on restoring the supply lines to Manipur. Pillai had also tried to persuade Muivah to return to Dimapur, when he called on the Naga leader on Wednesday.
