Myanmar government has ordered Manipur-based militant outfits to shut their camps and training facilities and leave its soil
by 10th of next month. Home Ministry official sources said in New Delhi today that the Myanmar Army’s order was issued on 24th of this month .The move is considered as a goodwill gesture from Nay Pyi Taw.
There are 12 to 15 camps of Manipur based insurgent groups like PLA and PREPAK across the Indo-Myanmar border where more than 2,000 armed cadres are taking shelter.
The militants often come to Manipur to carry out subversive activities and leave the state to escape action by security agencies.
The officials said if the Manipur militant groups are forced to close down their camps by the Myanmar Army, it would have significant impact on the security situation in the northeastern state. Besides, other northeastern militant groups having bases in Myanmar may also have to face the heat of the neighbouring country with improved bilateral relations between.
