Imphal, October 28 2020: De Jure government of Manipur in Exile , which is taking shelter at London announced October 29 as the Independence Day of Manipur.

On the occasion the self proclaimed Chief Minister , Yambem Biren greets the people of the region from where he has been taking shelter.

In the eve of the Independence day the Chief Minister Yambem Biren, while announcing Oct.

29 as the Independence Day of Manipur from India said that after having our Manipur State Constitution Act 1947, the Independence of Manipur gained from the British on 14 August 1947 by bilateral political agreement, ours not declared independence.

His Highness the Maharaja of Manipur, hosted the State flag at Kangla where the heredity Palace of Manipur on 14 August 1947 at 8.00 am .

He further said that , Our forefathers fought the war till their last breaths to save Manipur from the foreign occupation.

Manipur defeated in the declared Anglo-Manipuri War of 1891 even though the State did not annex to the British.

Manipur State forfeited to the British Crown by a Notification No.1862 dated 18September 1891 of the Foreign Department of the Government of India.

But Manipur remained as a Monarchic State with internal sovereignty.

Manipur State ruled by the native King of Manipur as an absolute monarch Ruler under the paramountcy and suzerainty of the Crown.

He said, "The Manipur State excluded from the India - Empire of India as declared by the Order-in-Council by His Majesty the King, Emperor of India.

Since Manipur State excluded from India, the whole territory of the State delineated in the maps of Survey of India at the date of 1 January 1947 ultimately the State has not remained as a part of India as Indian State.

In the provisions as provided by British laws, there is not any provision to merge or annex the excluded State to India (Dominion of India now the Union of India) .

"In violation of Section 9(5) of the Indian Independence Act 1947, M.K.Vellodi, Joint Secretary to the Government of India who is not an authority of law had passed an order the Manipur (Administration) Order 1948 on 15 October 1949 .

By this order, the Manipur State Legislature dissolved and immediately prevented the spirit of the Manipur State Constitution Act 1947 which was introduced and inaugurated by the bilateral agreement of the two sovereigns.

The constitutional Government of the State of Manipur was illegally and fraudulently overthrown by order of the Government of India which is an Indian Government.

"And further, in the violation of Section 9(5) of the Indian Independence Act 1947, the Indian Governor-General of the Dominion of India C.Rajagopalachari who is not an authority of law had passed an order the States' Merger (Chief Commissioners' Provinces) Order 1950 on 22 January 1950 .

An independent political State of Manipur illegally and forcibly annexed to India- Dominion of India by order of the Indian Governor-General of the Dominion of India who is not an executive authority.

It is also a great threat to the territorial integrity and sovereignty of the independent State of Manipur.

"The British sovereign made a special political arrangement between India - Empire of India and excluded State of Manipur under the policy of His Majesty's Government.

Indian Government headed by Jawaharlal Nehru and C.Rajagopalachari, Governor-General of the Dominion of India had been exercised their power and authority beyond the British laws made by the British Parliament, immediately it should be checked by an appropriate law of the British Parliament and Court in an appropriate manner because the law made by the Parliament of any country can be justified in judicial review of that country alone.

"Formation of the Manipur State Council which is a de jure Government by the State authority under the Manipur State Constitution Act 1947 and the Manipur State Administration Rules 1947 was the immediate step for upholding, preserving and safeguarding the sovereignty of the State and political rights and human rights of the people of Manipur, and significantly by exercising the constitutional discretionary power by the Manipur State Council can refer the constitutional matter of the Manipur State to His Majesty or His Majesty in Council for the restoration of her de facto sovereignty from the foreign hands of the Indian Government.

Therefore, the Manipur State Council formed on 14 March 2012 under the Manipur State Administration Rules 1947 for the administration of Manipur State.

It is a fact that the State cannot and does not exist without a government, no matter what form a government may assume.

It is also a fact that the Government can change, and the Government can replace by others.

"We unilaterally declared the independence of Manipur from India - Union of India by forming the Manipur State Council on 14 March 2012 in Manipur and further immediately announced the deceleration by the Chief Minister as a Chief Executive of the State before international media in London on 29 October 2019 to send out the message of the independence of Manipur from India to all the sovereign countries or States of the members of the United Nations.

It is the legal duties, legal responsibilities, and legal rights of the people of Manipur.

Our unilateral declaration and de jure government connect to the spirit of the State Constitution Act 1947, and the State Administration Rules 1947 of the Manipur State and international laws and UN Charters.

"We declared independence from India under the domestic law, international law, and Charter of the UN; it is a legal step.

Now we have opened the de jure Government in exile in London.

We, the people of Manipur together stand up against the illegal and unconstitutional acts of the Indian Government for the restoration of de facto governance in our Monarchic State under the Manipur State Constitution Act 1947 .

"Any authority of the Indian Government has not opposed Manipur's independence from India - Union of India including Indian High Commissioner in London which has remained silent.

According to international laws, when a State that has an interest in the matter is silent, it will generally be regarded as acquiescing in practice.

"The de jure Government of Manipur in exile in London is now appealed to the Indian Government for a concise consideration in withdrawing the occupational forces with ceasing the de facto Government now installing in Manipur under the Republic Constitution of India without further delay.

The Republic Constitution of India should be limited and operated within the territories of India - Dominion of India now the Union of India not in the part of the excluded State of Manipur.

The independent political State of Manipur legally protected under the Charter of the United Nations and international laws so, time will bring our legal and political opportunity within a short day.

The De jure Government, it is now reminded Article 2(4) of the Charter of the United Nations to the Indian Government that "All Members shall refrain in their international relations from the threat or use of force against the territorial integrity or political independence of any State, or in any other manner inconsistent with the Purposes of the United Nations". "At last, I, with my Council members, share the pain and sadness with the bereaved family member who lost their love one due to coronavirus death and for our suffering people of Manipur and the miseries heaped on them by the occupying forces of India.

The prosperous days of the independent Manipur are not far.

Together, we will win, rise and shine", the self proclaimed Chief Minister said in a statement released from London.
