Manipur Govt Has Every Right to Stop Muivah : NEPO
The North East Peoples' Organisation (NEPO) today asserted that Manipur government has every right to stop the leader of a "banned" organisation from entering the state.

"The NSCN(IM) is a banned organisation and the Naga ceasefire does not extend to Manipur. As such, the Manipur government or any other elected government cannot allow its chief T Muivah from entering the state", NEPO President Dr N Mohilal told reporters here.

Every individual definitely has the right to visit his native place and "Muivah, too, can go to his home at Ukhrul district of Manipur but not as the chief of a banned organisation", Mohilal said adding Manipur has every right to arrest Muivah if he enters the state as Secretary of NSCN(IM).

Mohilal appealed to the Centre to immediately intervene and normalise the situation arising of the road blockade by Naga organisations in the wake of Manipur's refusal to allow Muivah from entering the state.

"I also request both Assam and Mizoram governments to ensure movement of essential commodities through NH-53 and NH-150," he said and termed the situation in Manipur as 'very critical'.

Referring to the acute shortage of essential commodities, life saving drugs, food stuff and fuel in Manipur, he urged Naga organisations to lift the blockade immediately to ensure the age-old relation between Manipuris and Nagas did not turn bitter.
