GoI engineered Manipur crisis, alleges RPF
Source: The Sangai Express

Imphal, May 27 2024: The proscribed Revolutionary People's Front (RPF) has alleged that the protracted Manipur crisis is being engineered by the Government of India.

The persistent ethnic conflict in Manipur since 3rd May 2023 has proven to be a manifestation of the long-drawn-out hidden agenda of the Government of India to subdue the liberation movements in WeSEA, to meddle with the internal affairs of Myanmar for India's own benefit and to counter Orientalism in collusion with Western forces by choosing Manipur deliberately as a battleground of regional and international political game because Manipur is an oriental Nation State populated by peoples of rich cultural heritage who could not easily be persuaded by India, the outfit asserted.

In order to achieve this egoistic hidden agenda of India, innocent civilians of Manipur and Myanmar have been made the sacrificial lambs, the RPF asserted in a statement issued by its Deputy Secretary, Publicity Roben Khuman.

By perusing the crisisevents in Manipur since May 3, views of the learned persons and accounts from eyewitnesses, it is clear that the present ethnic crisis in Manipur is not only the brainchild of India but also an expression of India's "damn care" attitude, it said.

Even though RPF and its armed wing PLA have been staying away from the present ethnic conflict, India has been consistently trying to drag the name of RPF and blame the outfit for its own culpabilities.

In the morning of May 7, 2023, Kuki chiefs had called up RPF to inform what the Assam Rifles had told them.

"Yesterday the Assam Rifles came to our village and informed that the PLA was prepared to attack us.

The chiefs are holding a meeting today morning on the matter.

Our acquaintance with the PLA has been rather long, and we (the chiefs) know them properly and we do not suspect them to do any harm to us.

However, for the sake of reaffirmation, we have called you up to know the truth", narrated the chiefs to RPF.

The villagers were informed that RPF had no such intent and the villagers must not believe in what the Assam Rifles had preached.

The villagers then requested to give the clarification in black and white.

RPF sent its reply in the form of text message which read as, "Government of India, especially the Field Intelligence Unit (FIU) of Indian security forces deliberately created the present communal tension in Manipur through their henchmen to sabotage the unity among the communities of Manipur which have been living peacefully since time immemorial as brothers.

India's agenda is to destroy the unity of Manipur.

Once the Unity is destroyed, the native people of Manipur cannot rule their own native land and India would be ruling Manipur totally by taking advantage of the disunity.

"Dear Sir/Madam, please do not believe the false propaganda of the Indian Army and their henchmen.

RPF and its army PLA are for all communities of Manipur and still stand for Unity.

Let us defend and protect the Unity of Manipur.

Expose the henchmen in our community and denounce their heinous crime together.

Thank you".

One Kuki armed group which is not a party to the Suspension of Operation (SoO) pact with the Government of India upheld the same spirit and said, "We know that the crisis is a handiwork of the Indian Government and we have been telling people to refrain from indulging into it".

On May 10, 2023, 90 Meetei labourers were safely handed over to Sugnu MLA K Ranjit under the aegis and initiative of the Peace Committee's president.

MLA Ranjit had even reportedly extended monetary support to the Kuki chiefs.

Disgruntled by this atmosphere of peace and co-existence in the Sugnu area, the Indian agencies began to spew poison through their henchmen to disturb the tranquil relationship.

The objection to the machination of the Indian security agencies, particularly the Assam Rifles, appeared crystal clear when the Manipur State Police came into direct confrontation with the Central forces, it alleged.

It was during this juncture, the Government of India started to drag in the name of RPF into the ethnic conflict.

The evidence to such machinations became clear when an NIA charge-sheet claimed that Moirangthem Anand Singh was a member of the PLA after he was already identified as a leader of the Kangleipak Communist Party (Noyon Group).

The Government of India made, every attempt to drag the PLA into the ethnic conflict as an interested party but it is worth recalling what was published in media at the Mr Anand was arrested.

One person identified as Moirangthem Anand Singh who was re-arrested by the National Investigation Agency (NIA) on September 22 after granting bail by a NIA court, belongs to Kangleipak Communist Party (KCP) ...

KCP (Noyon) leader Moirangthem Anand Singh was arrested by NIA sleuths from the Imphal police station on Friday afternoon hours after a Special Court granted bail to him in a separate case ...

One of the accused, Moirangthem Anand Singh, was a trained cadre of a proscribed Meitei militant outfit and previously arrested six times in 1997, 2001, 2002, 2004, 2005 and 2009.After joining the KCP (Noyon) Group in 2010, he was arrested again in 2010 for a case of extortion from Government office and was detained under NSA.

It then questioned why the Government of India has been repeatedly pointing fingers at RPF whose sole commitment is towards securing reconciliation of the present crisis, instead of pointing fingers to the concerned parties and individuals of the ongoing ethnic strife who are into frequent mudslinging like - the Arambai Tengol (AT), Committee on Tribal Unity (CoTU), Indigenous Tribal Leader's Forum (ITLF), Kuki Inpi Manipur (KIM), Meitei Leepun, Scheduled Tribe Demand Committee of Manipur (STDCM), Kuki MLAs, the Chief Minister of Manipur N Biren Singh, MP Sanajaoba, Home Minister Amit Shah, Indian Prime Minister N Modi, officials of Indian Army, Indian Intelligence Agencies and their henchmen.

In the 1971 Bangladesh war of independence (the then East Pakistan), one hundred thousand Mukti Bahini were given military training to face Pakistan while India launched its Operation JACKPOT.

However, Indian Army disguised as Mukti Bahini by putting on Lungi (a Bengali attire for man) fought against the Pakistan Army.

In a similar role, the 21 Para Regiment in April end 2024 came to the 8th Assam Rifles cartip located at the India-Myanmar border and launched clandestine military operation against the revolutionaries of WeSEA.

Kukis from Bangladesh, Manipur and India took part in this secret strike operation pretending to be members of Kuki National Army-Burma (KNA-B) of Myanmar.

Like what the Indian Army did in Operation JACKPOT of 1971, soldiers from 21 Para Regiment and the Assam Rifles including several serving and retired personnel of the Indian army took part in this clandestine operation disguised as KNA-B.Not only the Indian army fought against WeSEA's revolutionaries, they also clandestinely attacked the Myanmar Police and Army.

The intruders ran back when the Myanmar forces launched a counteroffensive with helicopter gunship and the intruders suffered heavy casalities.

The injured were treated at Military Hospital of Leimakhong, IGAR (South) and Phaikhot, it alleged.

Statements issued by NSCN (IM), reports of eyewitness published in the news media and the indirect expressions of the Kuki Inpi Manipur's propaganda have confirmed that India has not only launched clandestine offensives against revolutionaries of WeSEA but also launched "Unconventional Warfare" against Myanmar; that means India has launched a Proxy War against Myanmar, the RPF alleged.

The RPF went on to claim that in the midst of the shootout they heard things like, '...India's attack on PLA is to make them come to negotiating table...", "if peace has to be brokered in the border areas, make PLA come to peace-talks...", "We (Indian army) shall continue with this onslaught until and unless they (PLA) do so ..." .

The antics of the Assam Rifles are so nefarious that they have asked and promised PDF and KNA-B to help in coercing Manipur armed groups to surrender so that they will be awarded with the weapons they (Manipur armed groups) would bring along with them, it alleged.

It then appealed to all the co-existing communities not to be swayed by the sectarian propaganda of India.

"We have been living together for such a long period.

Only the selfish and non-principled would become the henchman of India.

We are the gracious native people of Manipur who have been living together peacefully with distinctive cultural ethos and heritages", it said.

"We should not be the henchmen of India; we should live together and rule together.

The weapons that we possess today are not meant for fratricidal acts.

Instead, turn your weapons toward India and let us free Manipur from Indian colonialism and show our unity to the world", it added.
