Where is the Government of India Heading by Resorting to Proxy War Against NSCN Using KNA(B) and PDF? Manipur has witnessed significant sabre-rattling between the Meiteis and the Kuki-Zo, interspersed with bloody killings, with both communities suffering heavy casualties. The NSCN has kept its hands clean to stay away from such conflagrations, which do not serve any political purpose when the ongoing talks between the Government of India and NSCN are focused on political settlement through negotiations. However, the NIA has made bewildering allegations against NSCN for fueling the Meitei-Kuki-Zo ethnic conflict by allegedly helping the Meitei revolutionary groups against the Kuki militants.

It is regrettable that the Assam Rifles (AR) and the para-regiment are openly colluding with Kuki militant groups against NSCN, creating a war-like scenario in the border areas of India and Myanmar. No such warmongering situation has been witnessed in recent history, despite the area being prone to infiltration by different militant groups. As usual, the KNA/KNA(B) is in denial mode, trying to show a different picture, far from having any link with the ubiquitous AR and para-troopers. Ground reality, however, speaks louder than anything else. KNA(B) is given unrestrained access to border crossing points to Myanmar and allowed to come out anytime, while others are strictly forbidden. Such is the deceitful role of Indian Security Forces magnifying the problem instead of finding a solution. Certainly, the Free Movement Regime (FMR) was scrapped by the Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA) to control the undesirable elements crossing the border. It is ironic that Kuki militants are found as favorable elements to wreck the presence of the Naga Army in Myanmar.

To stop this, he initiated the scrapping of the Free Movement Regime (FMR) and fencing the border. However, contrary to the government’s decision, the NIA, along with AR and the para-regiment, are working hand in glove with the Kuki militant groups. These AR, Territorial Army, and para-regiment facilitated the Kuki militants with free entry and exit. Villagers have seen truckloads of Kuki militants being dropped at the borde
