Modi sends team to Manipur, Nagaland

By R Dutta Choudhury

GUWAHATI, June 11 � Prime Minister Narendra Modi has sent a high-level team to Manipur and Nagaland to assess the situation on the ground following the operation by the Indian forces in Myanmar and to counter the �false propaganda� of the militants on the issue.

Highly placed sources in the Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA) told The Assam Tribune that the Prime Minister had chaired a meeting yesterday to review the situation following the operation against militants in Myanmar. Following the meeting, he directed the Minister in charge of Department of Development of North East Region (DoNER) Jitendra Singh and Joint Intelligence Committee Chairman RN Ravi to visit Manipur and Nagaland for on-the-spot assessment of the situation.

Singh and Ravi will meet civil society members to ascertain the views of the people on the operations launched by the Indian forces. They will also try to thwart the �false propaganda� by the militant groups against the operation. The team reached Manipur this afternoon and will move to Nagaland tomorrow.

It may be mentioned here that the United Liberation Front of Asom (Independent) today issued a statement claiming that the Indian Army did not attack any camp in Myanmar. The statement said that the Army attacked two camps in Manipur, but there was no casualty.

Meanwhile, sources said that the attack, the first ever by the Indian forces in Myanmar, would have a major impact on the global fight against terrorism. �India, with the operation, wanted to send a strong message to the anti-India forces, which was cleared at the highest level in the Government of India. According to information available, the message went across loud and clear. Now the militant groups know fully well that India can hit back strongly with surgical operations,� sources added.
