The Coordinating Body Khurai (CBK) staged a sit-in protest at Khurai Lamlong Bazar on Saturday, demanding withdrawal of Suspension of Operation (SoO) agreements with militant groups led by foreigners.

Speaking to the media on the sidelines of the protest, CBK vice-chairman Bon Thoidingjam urged the authorities concerned to withdraw their peace talk with Kuki Militant groups led by foreigners.

Recalling that the state and the Central government have signed SoO with different militant groups, he alleged that most of the Kuki militant groups under SoO are being led by immigrants from Myanmar and other foreign nationals.

He further alleged that the militants have been taking up illegal activities like poppy plantation and drug business by taking advantage of the peace talks.

Relationship between the indigenous Kukis of the state and other communities of Manipur has worsened to a great extent, he said.

Bon further said that their illegal encroaching in different places of Manipur directly affects the peaceful coexistence among the native people of the state.

The vice chairman demanded the authorities concerned should terminate all peace talks with such militant groups and take up initiative to deport them to their birthplace.
