Resolution against abolishing SoO pact rejected by tribal MLAs

Imphal: MLAs from Kuki-Zomi-Hmar have expressed their displeasure over the resolution passed by the Manipur Assembly, suspending operations with Kuki National Organization (KNO) and United People’s Front (UPF) attempts have been made to terminate the party agreement.
In a statement issued by 10 MLAs from the community, they condemned the resolution as partisan and a reflection of bigotry and hatred towards their community.
They believe that this is aimed at defaming the KNO and UPF and further alienating the Kuki-Zomi-Hmar community in Manipur.
Lawmakers have urged the Union Home Ministry to give fair consideration to the matter to prevent further discrimination and alienation of its people.
They questioned whether the resolution was based on any report or observations of the Joint Monitoring Group (JMG), the official mechanism for implementing the agreement’s ground rules.
They believe that resolution is born out of hostility rather than fact-based assessment.
The statement highlighted the positive impact of the Tripartite Agreement on peace and security in the state in 2008, which saw a significant reduction in violence in the hill districts of Manipur.
They also mentioned the recent peace agreement with the UNLF faction initiated by the Manipur government, which indicates the role played by such agreements in maintaining peace.
