Imphal, June 02: Members of the Secular Progressive Front Legislature Party in an emergency meeting held today have once again resolved to protect and preserve the territorial integrity of Manipur at any cost.

The emergency meeting which was presided by the Chief Minister was held following the publication of a news report in several local dailies today regarding the submission of a memorandum by some MLAs to the Prime Minister on May 27 2005 endorsing the formation of Greater Nagaland.

Members present at the meeting cutting across party and ethnic lines unanimously resolved to protect the territorial integrity of the State besides promoting social harmony and peaceful coexistence amongst the different socio-ethnic groups in the State by preserving its territorial integrity.

A copy of the resolution taken by the SPF MLAs present in the meeting today was also sent to the Prime Minister.

All the forty MLAs of the SPF Government, except for RK Theko who is out of station, attended the meeting.

The partners of the SPF include the ruling Congress party and its allies the CPI.

Meanwhile, Federal Party of Manipur president Dr L Chandramani has today stated that the submission of a memorandum to the Prime Minister endorsing formation of Greater Nagaland by some MLAs is nothing but a renewed threat to the territorial integrity of the State.

As the matter is very serious, a meeting of the Opposition DPA's partners will be held very soon, he added.
