Unification of militant groups welcomed
Imphal, Aug 23: The formation of a new revolutionary front called United Peoples' Front by uniting the major revolutionary parties of Kuki-Chin peoples of this region was welcomed by various militant groups of the state.
The People's Revolutionary Party of Kangleipak(PREPAK), Kanglei Yawol Kanna Lup (KYKL) welcomed the unification and stated that it will be a big step forward for the revolutionary struggle in the South-East Himalayan Region.
It is an undeniable fact that the people of this region have shared common origin, custom, tradition and above all a common historical foundation, the KYKL said in a statement.
"In the future, also, we will share a common destiny. With this step, the culture of factionalism, the bloodshed of internecine clash, the struggle for tribalism or clanism will stop," it said.
This will be a great political advantage in the process of building up a new nation of South-East Himalayan Region of Tibeto-Kuki-Chin mongoloid people, it stated. In this process, we must wipe out the orthodox or Utopian dogmatic concept of narrow tribalism or clanism from the revolutionary mindset of this region, it added.
It appealed to all revolutionary parties of this region to take a leap forward from narrow minded political parochialism of small communities to a big new South-East Himalayan Nation of federated nationalities. It is the only way to fight colonialism.
