We salute them for their supreme sacrifices and share the grief and sorrow of the bereaved family members. The incident has become an opportunity to highlights the inevitable political separation for the tribal of Manipur. Thus, the KNO and UPF unanimously decided to pursue 'common political objectives' which would be nothing less than a 'State status', send joint delegation to Delhi and recently worked out its common political road map' on 25' November 2015

Church Leaders and a host of civil organisations in their movement against the three Bills .We urged them to remain focus and not be misled by subsidiary issues that can disturb the hard-earned unity. We understand the sentiments of the people and welcome various opinions expressed for the betterment of the people. However, we are completely against the divisive approaches of some section of the people and warned them to stop their activities henceforth . Formation of new outfit from this juncture, under any pretext, shall be countered collective and effective as we remain affirmative to the positive outcome of the ongoing peace process .
