Union Home minister Rajnath Singh is set to meet the chief ministers of Assam, Arunachal Pradesh and Manipur on the contentious issue of ‘Framework Agreement’ signed between the Central government and the (NSCN I-M) in 2015.
Meanwhile, normal life was thrown out of gear on Thursday at Thangmeiband in Manipur’s Imphal west district as there was a shutdown and sit-in protest demanding disclosure of details of the agreement.
Manipur chief minister, N. Biren Singh is on his way to meet his Assam and Arunachal Pradesh counterparts Sarbananda Sonowal and Prema Khandu before the meeting with Rajnath Singh.
Former Manipur CM, Radhabinod Koijam on Thursday said: “Time is overdue to sink all political differences and find a solution. Instead of holding talks with some particular groups, all stakeholders should be involved.” Congress spokesperson and legislator K. Joykishan said Union Minister of State for Home Kiren Rijiju’s statement that the details of the agreement cannot be disclosed because of their sensitivity is “unacceptable”.
Pradip, secretary of Thangmeiband United Club, which organised the protest, said: “Though we had invited all political parties to take part in the protest just three parties sent their representatives.”
Opposition Congress has been holding such protest meetings for some days demanding details be disclosed.
