Imphal: The United National Liberation Front (UNLF), a rebel outfit based in Manipur, has expelled its former chairman Khundongbam Pambei from the organisation for his anti-party activities and counter-revolutionary charges.
The Central Committee of the UNLF took this decision during the second special General Assembly of the outfit held at GHQ Neina Shang on 15 February.
As per the official statement, the expulsion happened following an investigation into the charges of undermining the unity and solidarity of the UNLF, colluding with the enemy by leaking sensitive official information and framing other leaders of the UNLF falsely. The former chief allegedly discriminated against cadres and soldiers of the UNLF to further his designs of dividing the party.
The statement further said that the charge against Pambei was investigated by a Fact-Finding Commission constituted for the specific case and the prosecution witnesses for three months.
To facilitate his defence, the outfit’s Central Committee invited Pambei to participate, however, the former chairman did not participate in Assembly, which served to confirm his guilt, said the statement.
“After the anti-party and counter-revolutionary charges were debated in the session, the second special General Assembly unanimously concluded that former chairman Kh Pambei is guilty of the said heinous crime,” the Central Committee of the outfit said in a statement.
