NTIMES 21Nov: UPF warns against KSDC bandh

IMPHAL, Nov 20 : The United People Front (UPF), one of the two conglomerates of Kuki militant groups under SoO pact, has warned that the ongoing bandh in pursuit of Separate Kuki State should not be enforced in areas dominated by the front.

Talking to The Sangai Express over the phone today, UPF chairman ST Thangboi stated that the bandh should not be enforced in all areas of Chandel, Sadar Hills and Churachandpur which are dominated by the front.

The chairman also appealed to all the people residing in areas dominated by the front to return to normal life.

People should feel free while moving around.

He also asked KSDC to stop all its ongoing activities from November 21 in areas dominated by the front.

He further appealed to all transporters including passenger carriers and oil tankers to resume their normal service.

This is line with what the UPF has been maintaining, while asserting that it would not support the public blockade called to raise the banner of a Kuki State under the Kuki State Demand Committee.

The UPF had maintained that its aspiration is for a State within a State, which could mean more autonomy. TSE
