Manipur Maoists observe ‘Anti Conspiracy Day’
IMPHAL, NOVEMBER 1
[dropcap]T[/dropcap]he proscribed Maoist Communist Party of Manipur has today observed Anti-Conspiracy Day, denouncing the role of Sardar Patel, who was instrumental in colonising Manipur and other South Asian Nation States by India.
A statement signed by its Secretary Publicity and Propaganda, Nonglen Meitei has claimed that Sardar Patel along with other Indian leaders took an important role in colonising different Nation States, which is today known as the Northeast part of India.
It said the Northeast has been kept occupied by India like a “Prison house of various nations and nationalities”, and on the other hand, the NDA-led government of India is observing the birthday of Sardar Patel as National Unity Day on October 31. To observe such day as National Unity Day in colonised Manipur is a disgrace, it said.
The statement further claimed that Indian army under AFSPA has killed more than 10,000 Manipuris so far.
Former director of IB of NE region, Ravi had also claimed that 8983 people have been killed in Manipur alone under the draconian Act, which could be more as most of the killings are carried out secretly by the Indian army.
The Imphal city, which is a very small city, has around 4000 Indian army personnel deployed within its 3 Km radius to terrorize the people, it added.It continued that history is witness to merciless subjugation of the Mizo uprising by the Indian State in the past by taking out aerial bombardments and many more militaristic aggressions like the ‘Operation Green Hunt’ in the liberated zones of the Maoist, rapes and tortures in Jammu and Kashmir, killing of Sikhs in 1984 and lives of so many innocents Muslims were taken in the Gujarat riot, the statement said.
Expressing doubt on the leadership of the Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi, the statement has questioned if he is sincere enough to repeal AFSPA Act, or to implement ILP system in the State.
It has also further asked if Modi is sincere to bring about a logical end of the sovereignty movement of Manipur through plebiscite.
Whether it is Congress or the BJP, they are both parties to the subjugation of the people of Manipur, therefore the only option is to strengthen the peoples’ war to fight against the subjugation and establish a sovereign Nation State, the statement maintained.
