    Armed response, gradual removal of afspa and bjp Govt in Tripura, Assam means NE has arrived into the mainstream. Integration in full swing. Only curse is the Rohingya, BD invasion in Assam and Tripura and a hostile WB Govt.

    Did Indian Surgical Strikes Trigger 'Coup' In Naga Militant Group?
    Sunday, August 19, 2018 by Indiandefense News

    [​IMG]
    In an unprecedented move, thought to be the first time in the Naga separatist movement's history, the NSCN(K) has removed its chairman, Khango Konyak. A younger leader, Yung Aung, 45, has replaced Konyak, an Indian Naga, as the chairman of the NSCN(K). The Naga outfit has maintained that the organisation is intact and ready to give a "serious blow to the Indian Army" very soon.
    Internal sources in the NSCN(K) have confirmed to THE WEEK that it was a bloodless coup within the outfit after the recent attacks by the Myanmar Army on the outfit's camp near Sagaing in Myanmar, around 30km away from the international border. The sudden attack was seen as a failure on the part of Konyak, who was not liked by the younger leaders of the NSCN(K). However, Konyak
    was known to be a close confidante of one of NSCN(K)'s early leaders, the late S.S. Khaplang.
    Interestingly, Aung is a Burmese Naga and also a nephew of Khaplang.
    While one source confirmed that Konyak was impeached by the Naga outfit's executive body, another claimed he decided to step down voluntarily in the interest of greater Naga unity. Perhaps, Myanmar was not ready to accept an Indian Naga as chief of NSCN(K) to work on its soil.
    A third source has, however, said Konyak was injured in the recent attacks by the Myanmar army and was taken to a safe shelter. Konyak was apparently being chased by the Indian Army in recent times, during series of surgical strikes by the Indian military, and perhaps has crossed over to Thailand or Malaysia or even China.
    None of the sources have confirmed the whereabouts of Konyak, who was recently found in a difficult situation after religious groups in Nagaland got in touch with him and requested him to join the talks with the Central government. They argued that without NSCN(K), the Naga talks would remain inconclusive.
    A senior NSCN(K) leader has confirmed the change of guard.
    "But please don't ask me anything as there has been no official declaration from our side," he added.
    It was believed that recently Myanmar army stepped up attacks against NSCN(K), violating a decades-old ceasefire agreement at the insistence of the Narendra Modi government.
    Konyak was also chief of the United Liberation Front of South West East Asia (UNLFW), a conglomeration of more than half-dozen insurgent groups including NSCN(K), ULFA(I) and NDFB(S). Konyak reportedly did not find time to regroup the organisation as he had taken charge just a year back after demise of Khaplang.
    Unlike in the past, the UNLFW this time did not make any appeal to create disturbances during Independence Day celebrations even as six groups in Manipur asked people to oppose the event. As a result, after many decades, gunshots did not resound in the northeast during Independence Day celebrations this week.
    Aung is a post-graduate of political science from Imphal University and an expert in explosive management and procurement. He was trained in Bangladesh, Pakistan and China by ULFA, ISI and Chinese intelligence, respectively, in the late 1990s. A remarkable sportsman who played for his university, Aung is known to be sharp, brilliant and intelligent.
    "He also took part in a polo competition in Manipur and plays the sports very well," said a member of NSCN(K).
    An Indian Army officer in the northeast said, "We are keeping a close watch over the development. No information has come to us about the change of guard."
    It's to be seen who would take charge of the UNLFW. Sources said Paresh Barua, the chief of ULFA, is the front runner.

    Over 500 Ulfa-I, NDFB militants to surrrender


    Guwahati: More than 500 hardcore Ulfa-I and NDFB cadres, who are running from pillar to post for shelter in Myanmar, are said to have been approaching the security forces in separate groups to surrender and return home.

    Indicating that a few senior Ulfa-I and NDFB leaders are already in touch with top police officers and working out modalities to surrender, authoritative security sources told this newspaper that condition of a large number of Ulfa-I and NDFB cadres are also stated to be very critical since Myanmar Army has launched operation and demolished Taga camp of the Indian insurgent groups in Myanmar.

    It is significant that in March this year, Myanmar Army had taken over the physical control of National Socialist Council of Nagaland-Khaplang (NSCN-K) headquarters and started driving out Indian terrorists from Taga area of Myanmar.

    Pointing out that a large number of Ulfa-I and NDFB cadres are roaming from village to village in Myanmar for shelter, security sources said that rainy season has made their life more difficult.

    Referring the intelligence inputs, security source said that these cadres who were driven out of Taga camp, don’t have money to survive in Myanmar so some of them were reported to have been doing “manual work” to earn money. Informing that because of heavy rain, they can’t cross over the hilly terrain to enter India, security sources said that some of them have also approached their respective family members in Assam.

    Admitting that Ulfa-I chief Paresh Baruah, who has been shuttling between Myanmar and Ruili town in southern China’s Yunan province, security sources said that Ulfa-I chief has been trying to dissuade his senior comrades not to surrender but many of them are reported to have defied him and left Myanmar against his wish.

    Asserting that Myanmar Army has already asked all non-citizen armed cadres to leave Myanmar, security sources said that recent development in Myanmar, like the Army’s ruthless actions — killing six detainees in an operation against Rakhine rebels in western state and operation against Rohingyas, has created panic among the cadres of Indian insurgent groups.
