Expressing concern over the problems ahead of Manipur as a state of India, CPI national general secretary AB Bardhan Friday hinted that the recent statement given by Nagaland chief minister Neiphiu Rio during his visit to Senapati, Manipur on May 28 was another threat to the integrity of the state. Bardhan was speaking at the opening function of the three-day 20th state conference of CPI in Imphal.
Bradhan said “He (Rio) said something not favourable to the integrity of Manipur wherein he mentioned that Nagas should be emotionally, culturally, politically and socially integrated under an umbrella political party.
Talking about the fragile law and order situation, AB Bardhan said it will not be possible for the government to maintain peace in the state by deploying 50,000 armies across the state. The persisting conflicts in the state should be settled by political means and every issue of the state could be settled through dialogues, he added.
Bradhan asserted the talks between NSCN (I-M) and Government of India in New Delhi, was another persisting threat in the mind of the people in Manipur.
“The territorial integrity of Manipur has been threatened by many forces. There is a negotiation in Delhi. The agenda of the negotiation is not clear. It might have related with the territorial integrity of Manipur and it is sure that government of India might not stand for the territorial integrity of Manipur,” he said.
While asserting that undergrounds extortion activities was the source of “rampant corruption” in Manipur, Bardhan supported UNLF chairman’s assertion and called for an end to extortion in the name of revolutionary struggle.
He also talked on the issue of AFSPA which Irom Sharmila is demanding repeal by launching indefinite hunger strike and said that alleged the UPA government at the Centre of not deserving the demand of people in the state.
