The Revolutionary People Front (RPF), the political wing of the People Liberation Army (PLA) announced that as part of observation of "Black Day", a boycott would be observed throughout Manipur from 1.00 a.m. to 6.30 p.m. on Friday, to mark India's annexation of Manipur.
In a statement of the banned outfit, publicity secretary T Leishemba, while announcing the boycott appealed to the people not to organise any sort of functions. "It is an undeniable truth that India coercively annexed Manipur. Hence it is annexation and not merger has been reiterated by the resolutions that have been adopted by the people in many conferences and conventions. There is nothing anew to reiterate this statement," Leishemba stated.
Further Police and security forces, both state and central, had been put on alert across the state to prevent "anti-national activities" during the black day observation on Friday. Meanwhile, Manipur government has so far received no official intimation from the Central government regarding the arrest of UNLF chairman, RK Meghen alias Sanayaima.
“Government is not aware of the arrest. We have not received any intimation from New Delhi so far,” said Commissioner (Home), Vumlunmang when contacted by some Imphal based reporters. According to agency reports, the ultra leader was arrested by Rapid Action Battalion of Bangladesh in a place called Lalmati in Dhaka on October 3 on his way from Saigol in Vietnam after procuring arms and ammunition and handed over to Indian officials on Tuesday.
Meanwhile, Pillai would be visiting Imphal on October 18 to review stock position of the essential commodities like petroleum products and PDS rice which Manipur experienced shortfall due to prolonged economic blockade on the national highways in the recent past.
