Yes this is the gameplan actually.Kuki tribals came over from Myannmar side including your insurgent groups, some directly crossed over as "refugees", giving heartburn to Manipur govt, and were detained, some were given open borders and red-carpet by Mizoram govt, since Mizo and Kuki are related tribes.
The already existing Kuki folks in Manipur are a minority along with the Nagas and live in the hill areas( 90% of state's land area ), Metei's live in the Imphal valley.
I guess the scheme here is to start a Kuki insurgency with the stated demand as a seperate country of Cookie-stan or whatever, but the actual play is to negotiate into getting a seperate Kuki state being carved out of Manipur.
TLDR this is an imported unga-bunga problem, I doubt the local/native Cookies would like to start some shit in which they will get smacked in response.
Govt should cleanse the state of the imported Cookies and drive them back into Myannmar, otherwise Meteis will run their own insurgency, and Govt will have to play police, mediator etc, too messy
Summed up well.
Was waiting for someone to write all these, as I myself was feeling lazy.
Tom also explained categorically.
