Chinese agencies helping North Eastern militants in Myanmar, says Assam ADGP L R Bishnoi

The Additional Director-General of Police (ADGP), L R Bishnoi, said on January 10 that Chinese intelligence agencies had been helping various insurgent groups of North Eastern India having bases in Myanmar, reports the Nagaland Post. L R Bishnoi also claimed that the chief of Independent faction of United Liberation Front of Asom (ULFA-I), Paresh Barua had currently set up base in Ruili, a Chinese town in the Myanmar border. He said that Paresh Barua had drawn up plans to supply arms procured from Chinese agencies to smaller armed groups of the North-eastern region. “Chinese intelligences have been helping, directly or indirectly various insurgent groups of the North-eastern region that have their bases and hideouts inside Myanmar. These groups are under increasing influence of the Chinese agencies, and ULFA-I leader Paresh Barua is among those top leaders who have been in regular touch with the Chinese liaison office in Ruili on the China-Myanmar border,” ADGP LR Bishnoi said. 

Giving a break-up of the cadre strength of different North-eastern rebel groups in Myanmar, ADGP Bishnoi also said that while the Khaplang faction of National Socialist Council of Nagaland (NSCN-K) had over 1,000 cadres there, People’s Liberation Army (PLA) – a Manipuri group came second with over 250 men. “Taking into account at least ten North-eastern rebel groups having their bases and hideouts in Myanmar, there should be close to 2,500 militants from the region in that country. Of them NSCN-K alone has a little over 1,000 men, followed by around 260 of the PLA, 230 of the United National Liberation Front (UNLF) and a little over 200 of the ULFA-I,” Bishnoi said. According to him, the strength of the Isak-Muivah faction of National Socialist Council of Nagaland (NSCN-IM) there would be between 80 and 120, I.K. Songbijit faction of the National Democratic Front of Bodoland (NDFB-IKS) about 160, Kanglei Yawol Kanna Lup (KYKL), People’s Revolutionary Party of Kangleipak (PREPAK) and Progressive faction of People’s Revolutionary Party of Kangleipak (PREPAK-Pro) around 10 each. “Two things that have been happening there is that while the rebel groups of the region work in close coordination, they get almost 100 per cent support from the local communities close to the Indo-Myanmar who belong to various Naga tribes. These villagers not only provide them food and shelter, but also guide them through the mountainous track,” Bishnoi said.
