Manipur News: UNLF Signs Historic Deal with Indian Government

Manipur News: The oldest militant group in Manipur, the United National Liberation Front, inked a peace deal with the Centre, according to Union Home Minister Amit Shah on Wednesday.

“A historic milestone achieved!!! Modi govt’s relentless efforts to establish permanent peace in the Northeast have added a new chapter of fulfilment as the United National Liberation Front (UNLF) signed a peace agreement, today in New Delhi,” Shah said in an X post.

“UNLF, the oldest valley-based armed group of Manipur has agreed to renounce violence and join the mainstream. I welcome them to the democratic processes and wish them all the best in their journey on the path of peace and progress,” the home minister further added.

Other peace deal:

Days after the Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA) banned the UNLF and many other extremist organisations, a peace deal was signed. The decision was made because the Centre believed that these groups were engaging in activities that were damaging to India’s sovereignty and integrity, as well as attacks and killings of police, security forces, and civilians in Manipur.

What is UNLF?

In the northeastern state of Manipur, the UNLF is the oldest Meitei insurgent group, having been founded on November 24, 1964, under Areambam Samrendra Singh.

The group focused mostly on recruiting and mobilisation throughout the 1970s and 1980s. It made the decision to start an armed campaign in 1990 in order to “liberate” Manipur from India. That same year, the Manipur People’s Army (MPA) was established as its armed wing.
