The Home Ministry in a notification said that these Meitei extremist outfits have their professed aim, establishment of an independent nation by secession of Manipur from India through armed struggle and to incite indigenous people of Manipur for such secession.

The Central government, having regard to the circumstances, is of the opinion that it is necessary to declare the Meitei extremist organisations along with all their factions, wings and front organisations as ‘unlawful associations’, for a period of five years, it said.

The notification said that these Meitei extremist outfits have been engaging in activities prejudicial to the sovereignty and integrity of India, employing and engaging in armed means to achieve their objectives, attacking and killing the security forces, the police and civilians in Manipur, indulging in acts of intimidation, extortion and looting of civilian population for collection of funds for their organisations.

The notification also accused these outfits of making contacts with sources abroad for influencing public opinion and for securing their assistance by way of arms and training for the purpose of achieving their secessionist objectives and maintaining camps in neighbouring countries for the purpose of sanctuaries, training and clandestine procurement of arms and ammunition.

Of the eight northeastern states, Manipur has the maximum number of militant outfits active in the bordering state for several decades.

The state has around 400 km unfenced border with Myanmar, where tribal and non-tribals outfits are taking shelter and getting arms training.
