India possesses tools, resources to halt crisis: RPF

Imphal, February 27 2024:

Continued from previous issue

According to MM Ngouba, India's foreign policy will gradually become aggressive.

The neighbouring countries detest India and the frequent tensions and clashes are primarily due to India's aggressive foreign policy.

Diplomatic tensions will rise between India and its allied nations, accompanied by an increased imposition of economic sanctions on unfriendly countries, this trajectory could ultimately result in India losing its in fluence on international stage, reaching a point where it is banished by the global community.

India is currently experiencing the events mentioned above.

Among India's diseased national interest s, the most perilous one is the in terest that it must fight China and it has contributed to the ongoing crisis in Manipur.

Whether they perceived Manipur as potentially aligning with China or foresee unfavourable outcomes if China intervenes, there remains a compelling need for them to dismantle the revolutionary groups in Manipur and WESEA region, reducing their strength as much as possible, and also inciting the people in these regions to stand against China, India considers that if they do not take these actions, from the perspective of Indian forces, the current challenges of facing two and a half fronts will eventually transf orm into a significant three-front challenge, which will require excessive efforts to address Liter on.

Another national interest of India is the requirement to intervene in Myanmar as a strategic measure against China.

Moreover, assistance from Myanmar is required to count er the revolutionary groups of Manipur, Assam and Nagaland, hence a specific policy towards Myanmar also needs to be implemented.

Utilizing the Kukis under Suspension of Operation (SoO) as a weapon, initiating widespread poppy plantation in the hill areas, inducting illegal immigrants into Manipur are all tactics employed by India in its effort to counter China.

India aims to exploit Myanmar as a bridge in this endeavour, and these activities constitutes a hybrid warfare programme specially tailored for Myanmar and Manipur.

India consistently provides military assistance and financial aid to the Myanmar Army.

Conversely, India also supports rebels in regions along Myanmar-China border and those with the potential to disrupt China's interests.

The Chin-Kuki population residing in the border areas of Manipur and Myanmar became a convenient tool for India when seeking ways to combat the revolutionary groups in Manipur and to exert pressure on Myanmar.

On the flip side, all these actions serve as an open challenge to showcase India's stance and willingness to implement diverse measures on Myanmar honouring Manipur's history, its socio-cultural diversity, communities, ethnicities, and the lives and property of its people are not a part of India's national interests, Ngouba said.

Continuing his message in connection with outfit's 45th Raising Day, RPF acting president MM Ngouba said India's stance on the border issue of Manipur is not merely lack of respect, but rather an act of dishonour.

In other border regions, it proclaimed that not a single inch can be violated, and any incursion is considered an act of aggression, leading to conflicts and wars fought by India to defend its borders.

India even intervened in the border issues of neighbouring countries like Bhutan, citing threats to national interest.

While a significant portion of Manipur's border also forms part of the international border, India shows no intention of respecting its sanctity simply because it is within Manipur's terrilory.

It is an undeniable fact that Manipur and its people have become victims of India s national interests.

The people of Manipur affected by India's national interests may not feel the need to pray or plead to a deity for India to be punished or to receive retribution.

India is hurtling along a path of destruction on its own accord.

Unless it ceases to proceed along this course, it will inevitably face a dismal future, brought, about by internal conflicts and tensions with its neighbours, Ngouba said.

According to the acting president, India s unyielding national interest to confront China, along with the consequent national policies affecting the so-called 'North East' and beyond, will progressively become more dysfunctional with each passing day.

One of the major factors is that China's national power will not remain confmed to a certain stage or restricted within a limit but will persistently increase across all domains, including military, when compared to that of India.

Another factor is the integration of militarism and expansionist ideology within India's ultra-nationalism, which will escalate into violent tensions with neighbouring countries, potentially resulting in border conflicts.

India's aggressive stance may escalate these situations into military confrontations, potentially leading to large-scale warfare and wider regional instability.

An illustrative example of this dysfunctionality is India's shift from 'Look East Policy' to 'Act East Policy' which resulted from the disparity between India's interests, objectives, and the prevailing situation.

The underlying theme of the 'Act East Policy' is to push India's 'soft power'.

The debacle unfolding in Manipur and its border, which serves as a gateway to the A ct East Policy, has exposed the true nature of India's national interests.

Under the patronage of the US, India is seeking to enhance defence ties with Vietnam, South Korea, Philippines, Japan, and Australia, while also participating in military readiness programs with these countries.

Moreover, India is also attempting to involve itself in the situation in Taiwan, which is an integral part of China.

Due to its national interests, India's 'Look East Policy' has evolved into the 'Act East Policy,' and given the nature and pace of this transformation, it is likely to soon become the 'Fight East Policy.' This arrogant and diseased national interest of India is leading it towards a fiery pit, akin to a moth drawn to a flame.

The current crisis and the hardships endured by the people of Manipur serve as a stark reminder of 'the Seven Years' Devastation' and 'the First Anglo-Burmese War' .

'The sevenYears' Devastation,' a well-known event in region's history, occurred during a specific historical period that is familiar to everyone.

Reflecting on the incidents from 200 years ago through the perspective of the present situation and circumstances, valuable insights may gain that can be applied to the current context, resulting in beneficial outcomes.

During that era, the Burmese were already a formidable power in Asia, a population 40 times larger than that of the Meeteis, along with a landmass and military strength several times greater than that of Manipur.

However, the Burmese failed to realise that a greater adversary was lurking nearby, ready to exploit any weaknesses.

Their focus on battling a significantly lesser foe resulted in a gradual decline in the quality of their combat and strategic approaches.

Gambhir Singh Maharaj sought assistance from the British to combat the Burmese, and the British readily seized the opportunity.

Manipur was one of the major contributors that led to the First Anglo-Burmese War in 1824.Following the war, Manipur regained ils independence.

After the subsequent Second and Third Anglo-Burmese Wars, Burma lost its sovereignty entirely.

The correct strategic positioning, effective implementation of alliance strategies, and adept utilization of weapons and military tactics (such as 'Arambai' and 'Huiyen Lallong') by the King of Manipur and its armies played a pivotal role in the victory of Manipur over the Burmese army.

The indomitable fighting spirit, unwavering perseverance, skill, unity and courage are among the invaluable traits that are passed down to us by our forefathers through their struggle to liberate themselves from the oppressors, Ngouba elaborated.

Concluding his message, the acting president said silently enduring the burden or regretting alone will lead to the deterioration of out society and nation and it is clear.

Waiting for mercy from the suppressive rulers will inevitably result in shrinking further of our land that inherited from our forefathers and it will bring about the end of all ethnicities through violence, the extinction of indigenous peoples, and the ruination of our nation and society.

We can only protect and defend what rightfully belongs to us when we are an independent nation.

Now is not the time for hesitation or regret but rather it is a time for us to take up every available means and march in unison to break free from this chain of slavery.

The RPF acting president also called upon each and every individual to join in struggle for the liberation of Manipur.
