RPF takes pot shots at local political leaders-I
Source: The Sangai Express

Imphal, September 24 2019: RPF president Irengbam Chaoren has categorically stated that there is no means other than war to win back the freedom of Manipur.

A statement issued by the rebel leader on the occasion of the 41st raising day of the People's Liberation Army reads, "Nobody wants war.

Yet, India's political and defence arrangements which are all aimed at keeping Manipur under their alleged colonial rule permanently vividly testify that there is no way other than war to win back our freedom" .

While offering revolutionary salute to all the martyrs who had laid down their lives for the cause of the revolutionary movement, the RPF president also conveyed deepest respects to all the compatriots on the 41st raising day of the PLA which falls on September 25 .

Freedom, democracy and development are inter-connected pillars of a society.

A society will be peaceful, progressive and respected only when these pillars are healthy.

Such social conditions remain elusive in Manipur because of the meaningless freedom, pseudo-democratic Government and cosmetic development, asserted a lengthy statement issued by the rebel leader.

If one studies the degenerated conditions of Manipuri society during the past 70 years since Manipur was allegedly annexed by India, it is highly questionable how long Manipuri society will survive, added the RPF chief.

"The present generation must explore an answer to this question otherwise our society will sink in a sea of foreign elements and nobody will believe Manipur once existed as a distinctive, glorious Nation for several centuries", Chaoren asserted.

The situation demands intensified revolutionary activities but the vast majority of people have set their eyes only on individual prosperity or self-aggrandisement without sparing a single thought about what would be the future of Manipur.

It appears that a large number of people have been leashed by politicians who are more happy to live under the shadow and blessings of their political bosses sitting at Delhi, it remarked.

But many patriots convinced themselves Manipur can never prosper under the alleged colonial rule of India and built a revolutionary movement.

They soon started an armed freedom movement to free Manipur from the alleged colonial yoke and establish selfrule.

"It is this revolutionary movement which has been somehow keeping alive our people's spirit for freedom in the face of India's persistent attempts to destroy it completely and for good", read the statement.

However, local politicians who have the audacity to assume the freedom of India as Manipur's freedom have been unleashing all kinds of repressive measures against freedom-loving people to suppress the revolutionary movement in connivance with Government of India.

They (local politicians) have been mobilising people to work against revolutionaries, sponsoring protest demonstrations against the revolutionary movement apart from enlisting agents/mercenaries who selectively target supporters of the revolutionary movement.

Moreover, local politicians have been creating pseudo revolutionaries with a nefarious intention to impede the revolutionary movement and project the revolutionary groups in wrong light by blaming the genuine revolutionary groups for all the anti-social and criminal activities carried out by the pseudo revolutionaries, further alleged the outfit.

Some people and intellectuals who work in media houses and/or take part in analysing news and events at electronic media houses have been misinforming the public about the revolutionary movement thereby helping create confusions as a part of a larger conspiracy.

In spite of these, an armed campaign has been paving way for the revolutionary movement in Manipur, it continued.

As indicated by the revolutionary groups' conviction to carry on the armed campaign as an inseparable tool of the revolutionary movement despite extreme repressive measures unleashed by India including third degree torture and extrajudicial executions, a big conflict will certainly unfold between Manipur and India.

It is only natural for the people of Manipur to join either of the two parties in conflict.

It is crucial for the people of Manipur to support the revolutionary movement and prepare collectively for a decisive war for it is this revolutionary movement which will take Manipur on a path of freedom and prosperity, asserted the RPF president.

"One wrong step in history transformed Manipur to a colonised Nation.

If we cannot embark upon a new journey of freedom and open a new chapter of history, future generations would identify us as cowards who could not perform our duties and obligations.

We should not overlook the fact that the way we are living today is not the way people of Manipur should live.

The idea that all men and women must live meaningfully with freedom is a priceless legacy left behind by our forefathers who never bothered to sacrifice even their own lives to safeguard the independence of Manipur.

It is this ideal which Manipuri people should live by", Chaoren continued.

August 13 is observed as Patriots' Day in memory and honour of the martyrs killed by British colonial forces.

August 14 is observed as Independence Day in commemoration of the day British colonial rulers restored the independence of Manipur.

On the next day (August 15), Indian Independence Day is celebrated on the soil of Manipur.

Events celebrated or held on these three consecutive days clearly indicate that Manipur is presently under the alleged colonial rule of India, read the statement.

Jammu & Kashmir was allegedly fully annexed by India after Article 370 and Article 35A of the Indian Constitution were abrogated on August 5, 2019.What happened to Jammu & Kashmir last month happened to Manipur 70 years ago and the right for self-rule was forfeited.

It was on October 15 alleged Indian colonial rule was imposed on Manipur for the first time.

Soon after the deceitful annexation, people started observing October 15 as Black Day and it also sowed seeds of a liberation movement which ultimately gave birth to today's armed revolutionary movement.

Government of India responded by sending huge number of its military forces.

As a result, there have been increased incidences of confrontation between revolutionaries and Indian military forces which have serious repercussions on our people.

People have been suffering a lot on account of the protracted armed conflict, noted the rebel leader.

The colonial bondage is not a permanent feature of Manipur.

When geo-political changes in the region are favourable and when serious conflicts break out between India and other countries hostile to New Delhi, a road would be opened to win back the independence of Manipur.

"Our people should start preparing to discharge our responsibilities in such an eventuality", Chaoren exhorted.
