Manipur Govt warned Muivah of criminal cases: Student body
Aizawl: The Manipur government did not
prohibit NSCN(IM) general secretary Thuingalen Muivah from
visiting his ancestral village at Somdal in Ukrul district,
but warned him that he could be prosecuted in criminal cases
pending against him if he entered the state.
Stating this, adviser of the All Manipur Students
Union (AMSU) S Rakesh, told a press conference here today,
"The Manipur government never forbade the Naga rebel leader to
visit his native village."
Muivah was warned as the ceasefire between the Centre
and the Naga outfit was not extended to Manipur, he said.
He alleged that the Centre was to be blamed for the
two-month long blockade of the national highways, the lifeline
The intervention of the Centre came too late as the
people had suffered immensely due to the blockade, he said.
The Centre was sleeping and did not act despite the
Supreme Court order on blockade of national highways, he said.
"If such situation arises again, the people of Manipur
would be left with no option, but to get supply of essential
commodities from neighbouring Myanmar," he warned.
The AMSU thanked the government and the people of
Mizoram for extending help to the people of Manipur during the
crisis by allowing transport of supplies through Mizoram.
