Imphal, February 24 2013 :
President of Revolutionary People's Front (RPF) Irengbam Chaoren has greeted the people of Manipur on the occasion of 34th foundation day (Independence Demand Day) of the outfit.
In a message, Chaoren observed that Manipur can embark on the path of peace and progress and become a healthy nation only when Manipur is independent and free from all kinds of subordination.
"It is a firm belief of RPF that Manipur can be developed as a progressive, egalitarian country only when it regains its right to self determination.
For all these reasons, it is the foremost duty of each and every one of us to abolish the colonial rule and win back the lost sovereignty to establish self rule of our own people", Chaoren said.
He went on to say 'our enemies which we must overcome are the vast multitude of the Indian military and the highly sectarian policies and strategies of the Indian political leaders.
To defeat the colonial forces, there is no pragmatic option other than armed liberation movement.
Now is the time for all our people to join the armed liberation movement.
Only when the armed movement is raised to the desired momentum, our oppressed people can effectively counter the nefarious policies and programmes of India and embark on the path of freedom.
For this very reason, the present generation of revolutionaries needs to sacrifice more and more effective strategies devise by walking on the truthful tradition of people's revolution and win confidence of our oppressed mass' .
RPF chief alleged that having realised that it would face harsh international criticismsbecause of its policy aimed at suppressing the liberation movement of Manipur through brute military force, India is now pursuing a specific strategy called Civic Action Programme (CAP) which is nothing but another delusionary tactics intended to pull away and keep off the oppressed mass from the revolutionary movement.
"Through this tactics, the Indian military has been providing some momentary benefits to a handful of people and some of these beneficiaries have developed a mentality of subservience and an attitude to sycophancy.
These sycophants have also imbibed a mindset of abhorrence towards the revolutionary movement", he maintained.
"In the meantime, India, by employing a number of covert strategies, has been sending in different intoxicating drugs which can ruin our underdeveloped society for generations to come.
On account of this drug warfare, many of our youth are living a wretched life, bereft of any meaning or purpose.
In spite of this grave situation, even if one knows collaborators of the disastrous conspiracy, one cannot disclose the facts to our public and punish the culprits because they were performing their duty only at the capacity of a colonised people", Chaoren observed.
Chaoren further noted that rather than focusing on issues related with development and welfare of the people, the colonial regime is more interested in fanning internecine conflicts and confrontation amongst the indigenous peoples.
This sinister disposition of the colonial regime was manifested unmistakably when it recruited a large number of youth in police, security establishments and VDF in the name of providing employment.
It is an undeniable fact that India has been continually churning out one conspiracy after another, all aimed at creating complete chaos and anarchy in Manipur.
Everybody was witness to the recent public outcry when IG AR (South) made an abortive attempt to present some youngsters who were lured with the false promise of providing jobs as UG cadres in one of their routine surrender dramas.
But in many cases, people who refused to take part in similar surrender dramas were simply eliminated in fake encounters.
After convincing some gullible UG cadres of initiating peace talk only to present them as surrenderees, the Indian military and their political masters have been consistently conspiring to lower and corrupt the moral values and conviction of our youth.
Some of our youngsters, thus won over by the evil conspiracy of the Indian military, have been masquerading as revolutionaries and committing all kinds of criminal and antisocial activities transforming themselves as enemies of the mass.
This is another covert but no so secret strategy of the Indian military designed to project the revolutionaries in bad light.
On the other hand, Chaoren went on to say, there were cases when some revolutionaries who came out valiantly with full conviction to win back the lost sovereignty and save the threatened nation ruined themselves because of certain wrong steps made at unguarded moments.
The recent attempt of the Indian military to glorify themselves by claiming to have achieved a major success after deceiving some pseudo revolutionaries who are content to live a life of bondage in exchange for some short term, insignificant benefits was only a manifestation of the Indian military's base, unethical tradition.
