He said Irom Ibotombi had decided to join the mainstream as he trusted the changes seen in the country and the state.

He said the homecoming of such a senior member of PLA has shown hope and a new beginning in Manipur and appealed to all to lay down arms. 

Biren said the Manipur Government would uphold the commitment of Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Union Home Minister Amit Shah not to use a single bullet or lodge FIR against any insurgent who was ready to lay down arms and join the mainstream. 

He said that the State Government would make all arrangements to ensure security and rehabilitation of the surrendered cadres.

Biren said that the government had been making arrangements for rehabilitation of surrendered cadres, who were once members of various militant groups, under schemes and programmes provided for them. Various training for rehabilitation is also given to them at the rehabilitation camps.  

Earlier on June 1 last, fourteen cadres of the United Tribal Liberation Army -James Group (UTLA-J) laid down their arms and ammunition before the Chief Minister at a Homecoming Ceremony held at the Banquet Hall of 1st Battalion Manipur Rifles.

Regarding eviction of illegal encroachment and constructions at Waithou Chingol, the Chief Minister stated that the State Government had taken up the eviction process in the larger interest of the people of Manipur and to conserve nature and mitigate the climate change which we are experiencing today. 

He said that eviction had been taken up following procedures as per the law of the land. 

The State Government doesn’t do anything which is beyond the ambit of the Constitution of India, he added.

Stating that he, as a human being, also feels bad on pulling down certain houses and structures, the chief minister assured to provide arrangements for rehabilitation if any affected party has no other land of their own to stay. 

He further appealed to all encroachers and illegal occupants at Reserve Forest areas to voluntarily dismantle their structures as the Government would be continuing with its eviction work.
