KCP greets on Raising Day
Source: Chronicle News Service

Imphal, April 12 2024: On the eve of its 44th Raising Day falling on April 14, the proscribed Kangleipak Communist Party (KCP) has extended revolutionary salute to the martyred village volunteers and revolutionaries and also shared the pain and suffering of the people displaced by the ongoing conflict.

On behalf of the outfit, the central committee of KCP also sent out its yearly message on the occasion to the people, fraternal revolutionary groups, women organisations, CSOs, intellectuals, players, students and others.

According to the message of KCP's central committee, Kangleipak (Manipur) existed as an independent Asiatic nation with its own written history and the nation was known as Meckley before being finally named as Manipur.

The political boundary of Meckley extended far and wide but its boundary changed from time to time based on powers of the kings who ruled the nation.

After the first treaty signed with the British known as the 'Anglo-Manipuri Treaty' in the year 1762 as well as study of events after the treaty, the boundary of Meckley (Manipur) extended up to Assam in the north, China in the east, Bengal in the west and Roshaan and Burma in the south.

Some of the historical documents substantiating Meckley's (Manipur) vast territory include the Anglo-Manipuri Treaty-1762, Brookes' General Gazetteer Abridged, London, 1796, Alexander Mackenzie's 'The North East Frontier of India', statements of RB Pemberton and Sir James Johnstone on the boundary of Manipur and John Arrowsmith's map for mainland South-East Asia, 1832 .

The vast territorial boundary of Manipur underwent changes and shrunk significantly from time to time owing to several historical events with one notable event being the Treaty of Yandaboo of 1826 under which Manipur's Kabo valley spanning more than 22,000 sq km area was leased to Burma for Sicca Rs 500 per month which is equivalent to Rs 8,000 crore now.

After the Anglo-Manipuri War of 1891, the then British administration under the Manipur State Durbar divided Manipur into hills and valley thereby sowing the seed of 'divide and rule' policy between the hills and valley people for the first time.

After the colonial British left and handed over administration to the then king Bodhchandra in 1947, Manipur gained independence and established democratic government under the Manipur Constitution Act, 1947 by holding election in the year 1948.Despite having a government elected by the people, India annexed Manipur by forcing king Bodhchandra to sign on the Manipur Merger Agreement in the year 1949 thereby making Manipur a part of India.

In the year 1953, the then PM of India Jawaharlal Nehru and the then PM of Burma U Nu met in Imphal.

Though it was not known what agreement they signed in the meeting, Kabo valley was gifted to Burma and Manipur's territory was reduced further to just 22,327 sq km.

These historical events highlight the complex geopolitical changes that have shaped territorial landscape of Manipur over the years, the central committee message said.

Expressing concern on the present situation in Manipur, the central committee said that the war against the Meetei people waged by Kuki narco-terrorists since May 3, 2023 is going to complete one year.

Providing details of the events occurred before the May 3 incident, the message said that India orchestrated the war against the people of Manipur with the utilisation of Kuki narco-terrorists.

Apart from killing many innocent people and torching houses and villages, the Kukis have successfully executed ethnic cleansing of the Meeteis from Churachandpur, Kangpokpi, Motbung, Moreh and other hills areas dominated by the Kukis, the message said.

The KCP central committee further said that the present crisis began with a series of incidents which escalated rapidly arid posed a grave threat to stability and security of Manipur.

lt also accused lndian authorities of employing narco-terrorists as instruments for destabilization, aiming to undermine the autonomy and rights of the people of Manipur.

This characterization suggests a strategic use of illicit drug trade and terrorism tactics by external forces to manipulate and control the socio-political landscape of Manipur.

Such actions not only endanger the safety and well-being of the people but also challenge the integrity of Manipur's governance and sovereignty, it cautioned.

While terming the present crisis as a proxy war, the KCP central committee message drew the attention to the broader geopolitical dynamics at play and highlighted the vulnerability of Manipur to external interference and manipulation.

This narrative underscores the need for vigilance, solidarity, and concerted action to safeguard the interests and rights of the people of Manipur against such nefarious tactics.

It also alleged that the government of India is exploiting Kuki narco-terrorists to target the Meetei people, thereby exacerbating ethnic tensions and insecurity within Manipur.

The armed group questioned whether the Government of India had achieved its objectives with the announcement of the election, noting a cessation of hostilities from the Kuki terrorists towards the Meetei people.

While reminding people to escape from India's trap, the KCP central committee message said that the only path to the future for the people of Manipur is collective survival and development.
