IMPHAL, Aug 4 - Manipur Chief Minister Okram Ibobi Singh today reiterated that the State government will not accept the any peace accord signed between the NDA government and Nationalist Socialist Council of Nagaland (NSCN-Isaak Muivah) under any circumstances if it disturbs the territorial integrity of State.

Urging the NDA government at the Centre to make the said peace accord public in the interest of the people, the Chief Minister said that a treaty may be kept confidential before signing it, but it can be made public once it is signed.

The Chief Minister said this at a hurriedly called press conference soon after a Congress Legislature Party meeting at the CM�s Secretariat in Imphal this afternoon.

He said that Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh had assured him that the full text will be presented in the ongoing Parliament session. But it did not happen. We are waiting for the full text of the accord.

He said no information was shared with the State prior to the signing of the accord. �This shows that there is lack of transparency,� he said.

ILP: He also informed the media they the government has received the draft Bill framed by the newly constituted Revenue Minister Th Debendra-led drafting committee. However, he did not elaborate on it. Instead he invited the representatives of the Joint Committee on Inner Line Permit system for holding talks with the government so that necessary points could be accommodated for finalising the draft Bill. His Council of Ministers and Congress MLAs also attended the press conference.

Earlier, Manipur People�s Party (MPP)�s advisor and former Deputy Chief Minister Dr L Chandramani Singh said they welcome the initiative to bring peace, but the party will not accept the peace pact if it disturbs the historic territorial integrity of the State. The MPP will fight to safeguard the territorial boundary of Manipur, he added.
