Imphal, May 15 2010: Describing NSCN (IM) general secretary Th Muivah's proposed visit to manipur as 'provocative', the United Committee Manipur (UCM) has submitted a memorandum to the Prime Minister Dr Manmohan Singh today.

The memorandum addressed to the PM has been handed over to the Governor Gurbachan Jagat, according to a copy of the memorandum bearing UCM statement president Yumnamcha Dilipkumar's signature that also suggest that copies of the same were addressed to the Union Home Minister P Chidambaram, UPA Chairperson Sonia Gandhi and Governor of Manipur.

The representation described as 'ultimatum' said UCM on behalf of the people of Manipur 'would like to draw the kind attention of the Prime minister of India to exercise political wisdom in cancelling the controversial visit of Th Muivah to manipur latest by May 20 .

Cautioning that in case the Government of India do not act positively to pre-empt the explosive political here in the State, the people would be left with no other choice but to resist the alleged evil design of the Centre with the hidden agenda of disintegrating manipur, by launching peoples democratic movement with the declaration of 'public emergency' throughout the State of Manipur with effect from May 21 .

UCM also accused the Centre for the current impasse arising out of Muivah's attempt to enter Manipur with the contention that the visit had the clearance of the Union Home Ministry (vide message No.VI-23014/128/2010-VS: dated 29th April 2010) .

Highlighting that manipur is now in deep political turmoil due to the one sided 'naga Appeasement Policy' of the Union Home Minister P Chidambaram, the memo also blamed the Central leader of igniting the political time bomb by prolonging the agony and ecstasy of people of manipur on the verge of the disintegration of manipur, with Muivah looming large on the border of manipur near Mao gate.

"The track record of Mr P Chidambaram as the Union Home Minister of India in connection with the Telangana issue and the anti-Maoist strategy has proved his incompetency beyond doubt," the UCM alleged and urged the Prime Minister to advise P Chidambaram to resign on moral ground considering the acute psychological trauma suffered by the peace loving people of manipur due to his wrong 'Naga Appeasement Policy'.

UCM had yesterday announced that its total blockade imposed on hill-bound vehicles would be lifted with effect from 5 am of May 15 .
