Manipur Civil Bodies to Hold ‘Open Dialogue’ on Framework Agreement

Manipur Civil Bodies to Hold ‘Open Dialogue’ on Framework Agreement
November 12
11:37 2017

The United Committee Manipur (UCM), All Manipur United Clubs Organsiation (AMUCO) and Committee of Civil Societies of Kangleipak (CCSK) said on Saturday that they will protect Manipur State at any cost.

In this regard they are all set to organize a ‘One Day Political Open Dialogue on the Possible Outcome of the Framework Agreement in the Context of Manipur’ on November 18 in Imphal. This is urgent, according to the three organizations, as there is a strong possibility that the outcome of the Framework Agreement signed between the Government of India and the NSCN (IM) will affect Manipur State.

Speaking to media persons at UCM office in Imphal this afternoon, UCM president Elangbam Johnson said that the three organizations— UCM, AMUCO and CCSK — will organize the “open dialogue” on November 18 from 9:30 am onward at Lamyanba Shanglen, Imphal.

Johnson said they had already submitted memorandums to the Government of India that Manipur State should not be affected because of the outcome of the Framework Agreement. He also said that with the changing scenario in Nagaland there is likelihood of signing an agreement by December this year between the Government of India and the Naga groups, and as such apprehension also rises in Manipur State. He appealed people to participate in the November 18 programme as crucial stands will be taken on the day.

Also sharing the press meet, AMUCO President Kh Deban said that on two occasions they have told Centre’s Interlocutor for Naga peace talks RN Ravi about their stand. However, as apprehension and suspicion persist, they are taking up more measures including the “open dialogue.” Deban asserted that “much stronger protest” than June 18, 2001, will be demonstrated if the Government of India disregards their sentiment.

CCSK vice president Jitendra Ningombam said that, as promised before the elections, the legislators should work hard to protect Manipur State. He also said that the Framework Agreement of August 3, 2015, has given apprehension that Manipur State is likely to be affected. He further said that the November 18 programme is to decide strategies in order to protect Manipur State.
