Imphal, May 11 2010: The government of Manipur should ask the Union Government of India to give in writing that Manipur's territorial boundary will not be changed at all under any circumstances, and if the Centre can give the assurance in writing, then the Government of Manipur and also the people of the state should not have any reason to object to NSCN-IM leader Th Muivah visiting his ancestral village, Somdal in Ukhrul district, many observers suggested.

They said, the State Government should inform the Union Home Secretary, GK Pillai and the Centre's interlocutor, RS Pandey that even if the State Government agrees to let Muivah visit Manipur, it should be done only when complete normalcy returns to the state.

Moreover, if Muivah is to visit Manipur, he should visit only his ancestral village, Somdal in Ukhrul district and no other place.

Even there, he should not be allowed to stay longer than a few hours, may be two or three hours.

He should not attend any other meeting or programmes.

If the Centre agrees to these, the State Government and the people of Manipur have no reason to block him from coming to the state, the observers asserted.
