IMPHAL: Armed rebel group United National Liberation Front, Manipur is celebrating its 53rd Foundation tomorrow. In connection with the foundation day, the central committee of the rebel group releases its annual statement.

A copy sent to media houses deliberated on the present status of the erstwhile nation. It expressed apprehension about the fate of the indigenous people of the state saying that when nations across the globe has been enhancing towards development in this 21st century, the Manipuris instead of taking part in the competition has been moving backward. In 68 years of occupation, identity of the people of the region has been put at stake and there is a fear that there may be no Manipuris in the coming days, the statement said. 

The central committee also stated the use of words like “presence of rebels have hindered developmental works” by various political leaders as a political gimmick to mislead the people. 

The UNLF said that the root of the political conflict in the region is because of the uncertain fate of the people of the state after it was forcibly annexed in the Indian Union in 1949. The statement also reminded that the period at which Manipur was annexed was a time when decolonization was taking place in the globe. India too was decolonized by the British but in contrast it again forcibly annexed the nation state called Manipur.
