United Kuki Liberation Front (UKLF) designated camp was inaugurated by president of the Kuki Inpi Manipur (KIM), Thangsoso Haokip at Moilngphai village, Chandel district by hoisting the flag of the outfit on Friday.
Speaking on the occasion, he said that Kuki undergrounds were coming to a right direction to bring peace in the region by signing the SoO. Not only bringing peace in the region, they had paved the way to bring unity among the Kukis residing in different parts of the country, he added. He also expressed confidence that political dialogue would be initiated at the earliest so that people can lead peaceful life after being suffering for so long.
Meanwhile addressing the gathering, Jacob Thadou chief of the United Kuki Liberation Front (UKLF) lamented that chief minister, O Ibobi Singh had mislead the people by informing that government was paying Rs 5000 per month to each cadres of the Kuki militant outfits signing tripartite Suspension of Operation (SoO).
Jacob, who is also a member of the Joint Monitoring Group (JMG) of the SoO said that none of the cadre of UKLF was paid stipend and as such the statement of the chief minister was tantamount to misleading outfits, signatories of the SoO to the people.
He further said that 140 cadres of UKLF had been confirmed by JMG so far to receive stipend of Rs. 3000 per month, on which government was considering to increase it to Rs. 5000 on receive of proposal, but the cadres were not getting the same from April.
Reiterating the demand of the outfit, Jacob said the political dialogue would be starting very soon as per the agreement brought about in the tripartite talks held in New Delhi on August 22, where both KNO and UPF had agreed to deposit arms and ammunitions by September 20.
It may be mentioned that under the tripartite SoO, government provides a stipend of Rs 5000 per month to each cadre being verified and confirmed by JMG and lodged at the designated camp and government also has the power to stop the payment to cadres of an outfit if they violate the ground rules of the agreement.
