PRESS RELEASE STATEMENT OF CLARIFICATION IN REGARDS TO JOINT MEMORANDUM TO PRIME MINISTER OF INDIA BY CIVIL SOCIETIES AND POLITICAL PARTIES OF MIZORAM CONCERNING THE KUKI PEOPLE IN MANIPUR.

The Kuki National Organisation are pleased that their Zo brethren in present-day Mizoram are supportive of the Kuki movement in Manipur for Kuki State, comprising Kuki ancestral lands.

In reference to the recent memorandum submitted to the Prime Minister India, the KNO would like to provide clarifications that will further the aspirations for a Kuki State, which was first articulated by the Kuki National Assembly in memorandum to India’s first Prime Minister Jawaharlal Nehru in 1964.

The areas demarcated for the state by the Kuki National Assembly includes Churachandpur District to the south, Chandel District the East and Sadar Hills in the North. In the North, Karong and Senapati District was the border as per agreement between the Mizo National Front and the Naga National Council in 1960s.

The Political map of Statehood for the Kuki People, submitted at the tripartite talks by the Kuki National Organisation and the United People’s front to the Government of India and to Govt. of Manipur(APPENDIX-I) is considerably scale down. Prior to the advent of the British colonalists, the domain of the Kuki Chieftains covered the entired hills of present-day Manipur, which is corroborated by the ‘Anglo-Kuki war, 1917-1919’ or ‘the Kuki Rising, 1917-1919’, that extended to the adjoining Kuki Hills in Myanmar(Burma).

In specific regard to the Churachandpur District, the lands come mostly under Haokip reserved, including the commercial area covered by the town. Haokip reserved covers Koite Stream at Salbung (North), Paldai Stream near Singhat (South), river Khuga (East), and river Tuila (Tuilaphai).

The area demarcated covers surrounding villages within 35 square kilometres. ‘After uprising of the Kuki Hills tribes in 1917, and new system of Government was adopted; the region was divided into three sub-divisions, its headed an officers from the neighbouring state of Assam.

‘The three sub-divisional Offices were established at three strongholds of the Kuki Chiefs: Laijang (Tamenglong), Chassad (Ukhrul) and Songpi(Churachandpur). The sub-division Songpi was renamed Churachandpur in 1921 by BC Casper, the British Officer to honour Churachandpur Singh, the Meitei Ningthou (Chief) of Manipur. Our forebears, who honoured customary practices of sharing land with Kith-and-kins, ensured that non other than our own inhabit the district.

In Churachandpur, recent internal issues caused section of our people to cultivate Zomi as their identity, which has no relevance in Kuki History.
