Foundation day of PPREPAK celebrated 'We Kanglei (Manipuris) were never and will never be Indians-I'
Source: The Sangai Express

Imphal, October 08 2017: PREPAK acting Chairman Kh Sathy has asserted that the people of Kangleipak (Manipur) were never Indians and will never be .

The people's liberation movement is not a demand for separation from India which was born only in 1947 .

It is an assertion for returning the freedom and sovereignty of Kangleipak (Manipur) that was forcibly taken away in contravention of international laws and without approval of the people, the outfit asserted in a statement issued by acting Chairman Kh Sathy on the occasion of the outfit's 40th foundation day .

It offered revolutionary salute to all the indigenous people of the hills and valley who have been living together since time immemorial, all comrades of the party, member parties of CorCom and leaders of all fellow revolutionary organizations of WESEA .

The outfit also conveyed best wishes to the entire journalist fraternity.

Kangleipak can achieve all round development as a distinct Nation in the world only when it becomes independent .

"PREPAK firmly believes that with self-determination and self governance, we can make Kangleipak (Manipur) a prosperous and egalitarian Nation.

So in order to restore the lost independence of Kangleipak, and to bring self-rule, it's the inescapable primary duty of every Kanglei (Manipuri) citizen to root out the colonial rule of India", Sathy asserted .

"To defeat India, we need to take the struggle for liberation to the international level politically and make it known to the world community, and our brave revolutionaries should carry on the struggle with more dedication and sacrifice", reads the statement .

"There is no other alternative.

Therefore, time has come for all our fellow countrymen to join the united struggle for liberation", it called out .

In order to make it more convenient in keeping the people of Kangleipak as colonial people, India, as part of its various covert plots, has been trying not only to break into pieces the age-old boundary but has also been driving wedges amongst the indigenous communities to divide them.

As a result of India's divisive policies, mean and selfish thoughts have emerged amongst the Kanglei people who have lived together with love and brotherhood for 2000 years.

This is itself India's "divide and conquer policy", it alleged .

On the other hand, India has been following the same British policy of "divide and rule" to separate the people of hills and valley so as to keep them apart.

Since all means of survival had been removed, the close affinity and dependency on each other that used to prevail since the early times has also almost disappeared, brotherhood has been almost forgotten, and people have been forced to consider the outsiders as friends .

"Thus if we allow ourselves to be trapped and caught in the dragnet set by India to shatter, divide and create tension among the Kanglei people, we all shall sink deep without being able to rise ever again.

People need to be reminded that if we had existed as an independent and developed Nation, today's situation wouldn't have arisen at all", it continued .

A number of different communities in the world are living together peacefully and prosperously.

People of different communities can live together with love and peace in Kangleipak too.

The hostility and mistrust that emerged among the people of the hills and the valley, who have co-existed for thousands of years, had been created in a short span that is only after India forcibly annexed Kangleipak on October 15, 1949 .

It is true that as a result of India's divide and rule policy, various complaints coming from the hills brethren seriously affect the unity and integrity of Kangleipak.

In this regard, it's necessary for hills and valley people to sit together and thrash out the differences amicably.

In issues such as Separate State or Alternative Arrangement, ethnic identity, extent of participation in administration, resources, question of land ownership, etc will have to be discussed .

Causes of conflict amongst the communities, manner and proportion of participation in administration, mode and extent of using resources, ethnic identity and question of land ownership, etc are all creations of the Constitution of the colonial Government, Sathy said.
