The outfit clarified that the three individuals included in the homecoming ceremony, Yumlembam Malemnganba @ Chinglemba (23) from Sugnu Bazar, Nameirakpam Mani from Patchao Part-1, Jiribam and Khundongbam Ranabir @ Joyson (35) from Heirok Part-2, “are all renegades that deserted the party years ago”.
The proscribed KYKL has refuted the claim of the government of Manipur on the recent ‘homecoming ceremony’ that highlighted the surrender of some insugents hailing from Manipur.
In a press note, the procribed group accused the Manipur state government of conducting “yet another fake homecoming ceremony”. The outfit said that a “farrago of fake news has been disseminated by the Manipur state government to paint the national liberation movement in a negative light over the years. All of them are designed to mislead people into believing that the movement is collapsing and will cease to exist soon. As part of the state’s project of promoting fake news to squelch the national people’s democratic movement underway in the state against Indian colonialism, fake homecoming ceremonies are often held. One of the most recent ceremonies of this kind was conducted on 16
KYKL said that as part of the ceremony, the state chief minister argued that Narendra Modi and Amit Shah have transformed the Northeastern part of India, which was once regarded as an insurgency-hit region, as if they have uprooted the “national liberation movement”. “Rather than celebrating their accomplishments, this rodomontade seems to be a hagiology of central leaders trumped up to gain their support for his regime. The state government must believe that this propaganda has the potential to incite rabble-rousing effects on the patriotic youths of Kangleipak thereby reigniting revolutionary flames even in the minds of renegades” said the proscribed group.

Therefore, all Kanglei people are urged not to be misled by the news disseminated by the state government”, said KYKL and assured the the people of Manipur
that it “will continue” the movement until “sovereignty is restored”, said the proscribed outfit.
