UNLF, banned armed group of Manipur, signs peace accord: ‘A historic milestone’

The United National Liberation Front (UNLF), which was banned by the Ministry of Home Affairs earlier this month, “agreed to renounce violence and join the mainstream”, Union Home Minister Amit Shah said on Wednesday. The organisation signed a peace agreement in Delhi on Wednesday, he added.

“UNLF, the oldest valley-based armed group of Manipur has agreed to renounce violence and join the mainstream. I welcome them to the democratic processes and wish them all the best in their journey on the path of peace and progress,” Amit Shah said in a post on X.

The United National Liberation Front (UNLF) and its armed wing, the Manipur Peoples’ Army (MPA), were among several Meitei extremist organisations in Manipur banned by the Union home ministry earlier this month. The decision to declare many Meitei extremist organisation as  “unlawfull” was taken in the wake of ongoing violence in the northeastern state. 

Manipur has been witnessing incidents of ethnic violence since May 3 this year.
