Imphal: Shiv Sena Manipur state unit welcomes the decision of central government to complete 1,643 km long border fencing work and scrapping of Free Movement Regime (FMR).
State president of Shiv Sena Manipur unit, M. Tombi told reporters here, on Thursday that the party had submitted a memorandum to Prime Minister on Monday.
The memorandum included to complete a proper fencing the whole 398 km long entire international border between Manipur (India) and Myanmar; deployment of National Highway protection forces on the NH-37 and NH 102; withdrawal of SoO agreement with Kuki militants in Manipur; to amend Manipur Land Law (MLR Act) 1960 to have uniform land law in the state of Manipur; and to rehabilitate the displaced family due to the present conflict to their original places with securities protection.
The memorandum was submitted to Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Union Home minister, Amit Shah, Union Tribal minister Arjun Munda and national BJP president JP Nadda through Lok Sabha MP Rahul Shewale.
He said in Manipur the central government has declared 17 underground outfits as unlawful organisations including seven valley based under ground groups. It is an open secret that many of the Kuki militants that are under SoO are colleting huge amount of illegal taxes along both the national highways of Manipur. “Why the central government is not declaring those underground outfits as unlawful organisation,” he questioned.
Shiv Sena strongly condemns such type of double stranded activities of central government, he said.
He said 90 percent of Manipur is hill and remaining is valley. A uniform land law is required in Manipur.
Tombi said the SoO agreement will be expired on February 29. If the SoO agreement is extended the people of Manipur will consider that the central government wants to continue the ongoing violence. He appealed the central government to abrogate the SoO agreement with Kuki militants to bring an end to the ongoing violence in Manipur.
