Imphal June 15: The Kuki Inpi has written an open memorandum to Prime Minister Narenda Modi and expressing hope that the PM would “accord due cognizance of the Kuki people struggle for justice over the heinous criminal acts of the NSCN (I-M).”
The memorandum released to the media by the Kuki Inpi was written by A. Lenthang, Kumpi and Thangsei Haokip, Semang of Kuki Inpi.
The memorandum alleged the murder of 905 Kukis, uprooting of 360 Kuki villages and seizing their lands, and rendering 1,00,000 Kukis homeless.
The memorandum mentioned that the Kuki Inpi had repeatedly requested the five preceding Prime Ministers of India “to settle this inconceivable crimes committed by NSCN (I-M) before making any possible agreement with the perpetrators but to no avail. They all failed to amicably settle such heinous crimes and bring justice to the Kuki people who are loyal citizens of the country.”
Bringing out the stance of the Kuki Inpi, the memorandum made clear that until an amicable settlement is arrived at in a proper court of law, “whatever agreement made is futile and would never be acceptable.”
The memorandum expressed hope that the prime minister would take cognizance of their struggle for justice and amicable settlement. “Any possible agreement with the NSCN (I-M) shall be deemed biased and prejudicial if the miserable plight of the Kuki people is not solved first. Attending to plight of the Kukis is in the best interest of the country to guard the country against foreseeable blame on the Government of India which allowed such genocidal acts on it citizens,” it stated.
