The protection of the existing state is very important: Manipur CM N Biren Singh
FLASH: The people of Manipur, the history, the background, remembering all these things, the protection of the existing state is very important. If something happens due to ongoing peace talks(with Naga groups), then reaction of people will be uncontrollable. My concern is that Central Government should formally inform the Manipur assembly and government before taking any decision. Right now I cannot say this(whether solution would be Manipur territorial compromise) will happen. We want to see a peaceful solution. If our voice is not heard, if the consent of the state assembly or of the people is not taken if changes are made(post Naga talks) then we will be nowhere. Then automatically we will have to leave our posts. We met Home Min today, told him the purpose of our visit & discussed our apprehensions. During assembly polls campaign as well, PM Modi, Amit Shah & Rajnath Ji met us & assured that territorial integrity of Manipur won't be touched. We still have the same hopes: Manipur CM N Biren Singh.
