Union minister of state for Home has once again assured that there was no reference of any state or its boundary mentioned in the August 3, 2015 Framework Agreement signed between Centre and the NSCN (I-M).

Rijiju stated this in his letter, dated August 23, 2018, to Manipur’s Lok Sabha MP, Dr T Meinya of Manipur. 

During the recently concluded monsoon session of the Parliament, Meinya had raised concern over protecting the state’s territorial integrity in the event a final solution is arrived at between Centre and the NSCN (I-M).

In the letter, Rijiju said: “In this connection, I would like to mention that there is indeed no reference of any state or its boundary in the Framework Agreement.” 

Rijiju had also stated that the Interlocutor for Naga talks, RN Ravi had not given any statement anywhere regarding the contents of the talks, which was yet to be finalized.

“Government of India is adequately sensitive to the concerns of states of Manipur, Arunachal Pradesh and Assam and will ensure that the interests of all stakeholders are kept in mind during the talks,” he said.

The response also comes at a time when various Manipur NGOs had been protesting against the Centre’s reported intention to extend Article 371(A) of the Indian Constitution to Naga inhabited areas of Manipur.

On Sunday as well, a sit-in-demonstration was staged at Khamnam Bazar in Imphal West district registering protest against Centre intention of extending of Article 371(A) or sixth scheduled in the state. The protest was organized by the local youth club in association with the United Committee Manipur (UCM).
