Imphal: Amid increasing pressure from different corners to protect the territorial integrity of Manipur in post-settlement of Naga peace talks, Manipur governor Najma Heptulla is likely to leave for New Delhi on Tuesday.

Heptulla’s visit to the national capital assumes significance as a large section of the state has urged the state governor to take adequate measures so that the territorial integrity of the state can be maintained.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi has already set October 31, 2019 as the deadline to conclude the negotiation with all Naga groups.

Ahead of the crucial NSCN (IM)-Centre peace parleys in New Delhi, a high-level delegation from the state unit of the Manipur Pradesh Congress Committee (MPCC) submitted a memorandum to the Prime Minister, through state governor, on Monday.

A delegation of the MPCC submitted a memorandum to Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Union home minister Amit Shah on the ongoing Naga peace talks and its possible fallout on Manipur.

Submitting the memorandum to Manipur governor Najma Heptulla, the MPCC delegation demanded the Centre to take initiative so that the territorial integrity of Manipur shouldn’t be affected because of the ongoing Naga peace talks.

There are reports that an all-party team is planning to meet Central leaders, including Prime Minister Narendra Modi, home minister Amit Shah to put pressure so that the Naga peace talks don’t affect the territorial integrity of Manipur. It is also reported that a team of Manipur BJP has already left for Manipur to fix appointment with Modi, Shah, etc.
