Despite the decision of the Manipur cabinet which has barred his entry into the state, Th. Muivah general secretary and ato kilonser of the NSCN (I-M) affirmed that he would be visiting his village Somdal and Ukhrul town within the next few days.
“I am not subject to them (Manipur govt) and the Government of India have been considerate to me and they know it is my birthright to go and see my village and my hometown. There is nothing unnatural” he said.
Muivah said this to the local media after arrival at Dimapur airport Sunday from New Delhi where he held a round of talks with the representatives of the government of India.
The government of Manipur has stated that barring Muivah from entering Manipur was taken as a precaution against flaring up of communal tensions in the state.
On being asked about the progress of the negotiations with the government of India, Muivah averred that both the side were “more sincere and committed now” and expressed hope that further progress can be made. He also asserted that both sides were trying their best to push forward the current negotiations towards a solution.
Meanwhile, sources confirmed that Mr. Muivah would be visiting Somdal his native village in Ukhrul district on May 5-7. He is scheduled to visit Ukhrul town on May 8 and then return back to Somdal. The sources also said Muivah will return back to Hebron, the outfit’s general headquarters sometime on May 10. Reports said Muivah has not been to his native village since the last forty years.
The sources also said that elaborate security arrangements were being made to enable Muivah to visit his native village including Ukhrul town.
The Centre has also requested the Manipur government to allow Muivah enter the state in order to visit his village and Ukhrul town.
