Amit Shah Union HM says Center govt is firm against infiltrators

New Delhi: Union Home Minister Amit Shah on Friday reportedly emphasised a firm stance against all forms of infiltration into Manipur’s territory.

The Home minister was speaking at a meeting with leaders of Coordinating Committee on Manipur Integrity (COCOMI) in Delhi on Friday.

While measures are being implemented to register immigrants using biometrics, including retina scans, stringent action will be taken against all forms of infiltration into Manipur’s territory, Amit Shah told COCOMI representatives, as per sources.

The meeting was held in the wake of the present Meitei-Kuki clash that erupted on May 3, the day Kuki people started attacking the Meiteis.

To address concerns about mass infiltration, the government is expediting border fencing in the Manipur sector, the Home minister assured. TAnd, tere will be no allowance for Separate Administrations in Manipur, he told them.

The Home minister appealed for peace in the state and requested COCOMI to convey the message to the people, the sources said.

Ensuring the movement and distribution of commodities in the state can be possibly realised with the support from both sides of the communities and necessary deployment of convoys to secure the highways shall be ensured in a few days, Amit Shah told COCOMI members.

He further told COCOMI to initiate dialogues with responsible Kuki leaders and groups to facilitate problem-solving and peace-building.

The COCOMI members submitted a representation letter to the Union Home minister, who forwarded it to the Union Home secretary for further discussion on the outlined points.

In the letter, they requested the Home minister for effective intervention in the prolonged “Chin-Kuki Narco-Terrorist aggression” on the soil of India in Manipur sector and matters of the possible threat to Indian National Security.

The committee members also held a meeting with top officials of the Intelligence Bureau, as per the minister’s instructions.

In the subsequent detailed discussion with the director of the Intelligence Bureau and security advisor Northeast AK Mishra, COCOMI presented the complexities of issues affecting Manipur, including illegal immigration, cross-border narco-terrorism, exploitation of forest resources, and SoO violations.

The MHA officials acknowledged and took note of these critical points, the COCOMI said.

The director of the Intelligence Bureau provided insights into the current crisis in Manipur and its understanding of critical issues. After thorough discussion, the officials urged the committee to prioritise the immediate measures outlined in the letter.

They also emphasised the importance of continued engagement and cooperation with the government and stakeholders to facilitate a quicker resolution of the crisis.

The COCOMI delegations were represented by 13 members led by its coordinator Jeetendra Ningomba.
