PREPAK refutes, ridicules

By Our Staff Reporter
IMPHAL, Nov 17: The proscribed PREPAK has refuted any connection whatsoever between the outfit and those men who surrendered to the Government in the name of the outfit yesterday.
The outfit, in a statement issued by its department of publicity and propaganda, publicity officer Mangal Khuman, has also ridiculed the home-coming ceremony held yesterday at the 1st Bn Manipur banquet hall, terming it a stage-managed, false propaganda aimed at discrediting the revolutionary movement.
The claims made by the leaders of the incumbent Government that peace and stability have returned in Kangleipak after installation of the BJP Government are words of a sycophant, it alleged.
The outfit further alleged that the surrender function held yesterday was a stage-managed drama aimed at securing funds from the Home Ministry and at the same time discrediting the revolutionary movement.
The Government has been deliberately creating a confusion among the people whether the liberation movement is about bringing reformation or revolution, it alleged.
It is rather astonishing that the Government has been floating propaganda as if the people have started seeing the revolutionary movement guided by a political ideology as a reformation movement.
All the efforts of the Government to mislead the people and marginalise the liberation movement will never succeed.
PREPAK and its Red Army are always prepared to fight all such attempts of the Government, it added.
