“With this, most of the outfit’s members have taken a step towards abjuring the path of violence. The development is likely to give a momentum to efforts of government of India to restore peace and normalcy in Manipur,” MHA stated in a press release.

Notably, NRFM (earlier United Revolutionary Front) was fashioned on September 11, 2011, by cadres of three factions of KCP, a Meitei underground outfit. “Its senior leaders operated from bases in a neighbouring country and were involved in violence and extortion in various parts of the Manipur Valley. The development is likely to encourage other Meitei UG outfits to join the peace process and pursue their demands in a democratic manner besides giving a boost to fulfil Modi Government’s vision of ‘Insurgency free and prosperous North East’,” MHA stated.

The peace take care of the UNLF, the oldest rebel group within the area, was signed final Wednesday, ending a six-decade-long armed motion.
