IMPHAL, Feb 7: The chairman of proscribed UNLF, RK Meghen has categorically stated that the proposed peace talk between ULFA and the Government of India will not have any impact on other insurgent groups of the North-East which have been fighting for the right to self-determination of the people.
Meghen stated this today while he was brought before the special NIA court at Guwahati for the fifth time.
The UNLF chairman further maintained that the approaches of the ULFA and the the UNLF differ qualitatively. The ULFA is preparing to have talks with the GOI without any precondition; however the C-in-C of the ULFA has strictly declined the proposed talk and the group which will have peace parleys has never sidelined the demand for independence and sovereignty, Meghen noted.
He said that the people of Manipur can attain freedom only if they work unitedly in the true spirit like those of the people of Sudan and East Timor. The GOI will find a hard time to tackle the revolutionary movement only if two-lakh out of the total 25 lakh population form a union of like-minded people.
The people of Manipur have started to demand plebiscite and there is need for further union of the people to attain the freedom and sovereignty.
Further, Meghen has extended his heartiest greetings on occasion of the foundation day of MPA, and also gave revolutionary salute to the departed cadres of the outfit.
Meanwhile, the Special Court has rejected the plea of the NIA officials to record the voice tape of RK Meghen.
Six other cadres of the UNLF arrested from Guwahati were also produced before the Special NIA Court today.
