UNLF to not Compromise on Sovereignty Demand; CM Urged to Work for Restoration of Peace and Normalcy in Manipur
In a reception program of the oldest military outfits at Kangla Ford, Imphal the United Nations Liberation Front acting chairman M. Nongyai said- the bilateral talk will be between the government of India and UNLF and they will not compromise on their Sovereignty demand in the peace talk.
Nongyai further that the organization was formed with an inclusive ideal with the participation of all communities of Manipur.
He said UNLF was formed in 1964 to imbue patriotic feelings in the people of Manipur. Later the organisation deviated to the arms movement in 1990. Indian government agreed to talk about the sovereignty of Manipur formally, thus the peace agreement came into the picture said the acting chairman of UNLF.
Emphasizing that the agreement of the peace accord does not compromise sovereignty which was signed on 29th November in New Delhi, mentioning that CM Biren facilitated these whole processes with enthusiasm to reach this stage and thanked CM for his proactiveness.
He further that their arms will not be surrendered until the peace process is complete with the GOI. We are still yet to merge with the mainstream so will not let down our weapons.

Chabungbam Thanil, General Secy said the solution to the long-lost sovereignty of Manipur lies in political dialogue, and with the consultation with the central cadre and the leaders of UNLF, we decided to proceed with the peace accord proposed by GOI.
CM N. Biren in the reception program asserted that, in this historic movement of the peace process and making it possible- he would like to thank the people of Manipur. Addressing the 550 cadres present in the reception program said life and death are part and parcel of the human race, there will be an end to every journey. Every life is precious, so we need to seek alternative journeys for every reformation. Adding that the centre advised him to proceed with political dialogue for all the insurgent movements. He said, Let's try to unite first and refrain from commenting and hurting the sentiments of people. 99 percent of people are happy with the peace agreement said CM.
There is no animosity against any community of Manipur- as part of protecting the integrity and infiltration of the state, he will do anything said CM.
Manipur Chief Minister N Biren Singh also declared the commencement of a new era of peace and normalcy in the state following the recent signing of a historic peace agreement between the Centre and the United National Liberation Front (UNLF).
The peace agreement, signed in New Delhi on Wednesday, marked the conclusion of a six-decade-long armed struggle involving the UNLF. During a reception program for UNLF cadres, CM Singh expressed his happiness, emphasizing the significance of ushering in peace and unity in Manipur.
In his address, CM urged the public to extend the same effort, encouragement, and support provided to the UNLF for joining the peace talks to other groups as well. He reflected on the loss of precious lives, both civilian and security personnel, due to the prolonged insurgency in the state.
As part of the ceremony, the cadres of the UNLF were also feted and pigeons were released carrying the message of peace, hope, and development.
The ceremony was also attended by Speaker of the Manipur Legislative Assembly Thokchom Satyabrata Singh, cabinet ministers, MLAs, Chief Secretary, DGP, Army, civil and police officers, leaders of the UNLF Acting Chairman Moirangthem Nongyai, General Secretary Chabungbam Thanil, intellectuals, eminent personalities, among others.
