PEACE-TALK IN INDIA’S GRIP IS DEATH TRAP
AND TOTAL BETRAYAL OF OUR PEOPLE
This is to reiterate the stand of UNLF on the question of talks with India. At long last, the
breakaway Pambei Group of the UNLF has signed a ‘Peace Talks Agreement’ with the Govt of
India on 29 Nov 2023 at New Delhi. Obviously it is an agreement for beginning ‘peace talks’.
This development has necessitated the UNLF to issue this Press Release to clarify on the basic
issues involved.
According to the spokesperson of Pambei Group, their agenda for the talks shall be ‘the
restoration of Manipur’s sovereignty and independence’. However, the paradox is India govt has
never agreed to include the issue of ‘sovereignty and independence’ on the agenda of talks. This
is the stand India govt took on holding talks with NSCN and ULFA. This is precisely the reason
ULFA of Assam has not accepted to hold talks with India govt till today.
On the other hand, India’s Home Minister, Amit Saha twitted on his Twitter handle that Pambei
group “… has agreed to renounce violence and join the (Indian) mainstream. I welcome them to
the democratic processes …” This remark negates the claim of Pambei group on the issue of
restoration of sovereignty and independence of Manipur through ‘peace talks’. Therefore, UNLF
Pambei group’s claim is not only misleading the people of Manipur but also belittles the image
of our national liberation struggle.
Under the circumstances, the UNLF hereby inform our people that Pambei group has deviated
from the time tested fundamental political principle of UNLF. That such an internal situation has
been created thereby weakening our united effort at a time when Manipur is confronting an
unprecedented challenge is really unfortunate. This is tantamount to total betrayal of the goal of
UNLF, which is enshrined in every patriotic Manipuris i.e., “Restoration of Manipur’s lost
Sovereignty and Independence” for which many of our Founders, Leaders and fighters made
supreme sacrifice.
The attempt of India govt to give the impression that by signing the ‘peace talks agreement’ with
the breakaway group of UNLF can only be described as ignorance of the dynamics of our
national liberation struggle.

Lastly, the Central Committee UNLF appeal to our people not to lost hope at such act of
betrayal of some groups. We vow at our stand that we will carry forward our struggle for
Independence till the last blood.
Kangla, CENTRAL COMMITTEE
