    Myanmar moves to set up base at Chandel district


    Myanmar Army has initiated the spade work for setting up a temporary Platoon Base camp at the disputed Holenphai village under Moreh subdivision in Chandel district.

    Holenphai village is located 3 kilometres South of Moreh Police Station, adjacent to Border Pillar 76 .

    The Myanmar Army has also claimed that the area is within their territory.

    Based on inputs fed by Lalkholun Haokip, chief of Holenphai, ADC of Moreh, Robert Singh Kshetrimayum along with SDPO of Moreh, H Balaram Singh and OC of Moreh Commando, Sada-nanda rushed to the site for spot inspection.

    Coming across the Myanmar army clearing the ground for setting up their base camp, the officials called on the OC of Myanmar Army's 87 LI.

    The ADC pursued the CO with a request to halt the work until a final settlement is reached between the higher authorities of the two countries.


    Since the area is 10 metre away from the Border Pillar, Robert also urged the CO to meet his 9 Assam Rifles counterpart while also urging him to uphold the cordial relations between the two countries.

    Robert further reminded the Myanmar Army officer that construction of Integrated Check Post near Border Pillar 78 was aborted as a mark of respect to the request of the Myanmar Govt earlier.

    Responding to the request, the CO of Myanmar's 87 LI said that the temporary Platoon Base Camp was constructed at the order of Myanmar's Govt higher authorities.

    "According to the Myanmar map, Holenphai falls within Myanmar territory," he said adding, 'The Myanmar army is setting up its temporary Platoon base camp within its territory.

    "Unless the higher authority said so I cannot halt the work," he said while assuring that he would convey the matter to the higher authorities.

    He added that the matter was already conveyed to the CO of 9 Assam Rifles a month back.

    A number of civil society organisations had earlier inspected the border fencing works taken up and called for a halt to the work on the ground that Manipur stands to lose a huge chunk of her territory.

    Myanmar Army erecting camp in Manipur territory, allege officials

    The Manipur government has taken a serious view of the Myanmarese Army preparations to construct a temporary Army camp at Holenphai village, located 3 km from the police station at Moreh — the border town of Manipur. The State government is in contact with the Centre regarding the development, according to official sources.

    Attempts to defuse the crisis by dissuading the Myanmarese Army officers from suspending the work till a final settlement is brought about were not fruitful as the officers said that they cannot do anything against the orders from their higher officials.

    Meanwhile, several voluntary organisations and political parties in Manipur have been demanding the suspension of the work by Myanmarese Army personnel to erect a border fence as large chunks of the State’s land will be lost. Once the fence is erected, almost half of the 14 tribal villages in Chandel district will go to Myanmar. In the case of Choro in Ukhrul district, the entire village will be on the Myanmarese side of the fence. These political parties and NGOs have been threatening massive agitations to protect Manipur's land.

    Earlier, on the basis of complaints from Myanmar, erection of the 10 km-long border fence at Moreh had been suspended; Myanmar had said that its land had been encroached upon. The construction of the Integrated Check Post office was also suspended on similar ground.

    The Myanmarese Army had started cutting trees at Holenphai village for the construction of the temporary Army base-camp, following which the village chief informed the district officials about the development. Robert Khetrimayum, Additional Collector of Moreh, accompanied by sub-divisional police officer H. Balram and Moreh police commando unit office-in-charge Sadananda visited the village on Thursday.

    The official team found the Myanarmese Army cutting trees in the village. The Additional Collector told the commanding officer of 87 Light infantry of the Myanmarese Army to suspend the work till a settlement is brought about. However, the commanding officer was not happy that the Indian officials had come inside the “territory” of Myanmar. He told the Indian officials that he cannot do anything unless his higher officials gave him orders.

    He also told the Indian officials that according to a map of the Britishers, this area is well within Myanmar.
