Myanmar met with militants from Manipur, Assam, Nagaland
Myanmar’s army, which is crushing democracy supporters at gunpoint, has also stabbed India in the back. Myanmar’s army has allowed insurgents operating in Northeast India to set up camp in their area. These insurgents are taking training in Myanmar and carrying out bloody attacks in Manipur and Nagaland with the help of Chinese weapons. In return, extremist organizations operating in Northeast India are attacking people of the pro-democracy People’s Defense Forces in Myanmar to help the army.
India has given from war weapons to humanitarian aid to the Myanmar army. Even after this favor, the Myanmar army is helping the militants of the Northeast. According to the Asia Times report, when militant groups carried out a bloody attack in Manipur on November 13, India’s once soft and sometimes warm relations with Myanmar once again boiled over. Seven people including an officer of the Assam Rifles were killed in this attack. This includes the officer’s wife and a 6-year-old child.
It is easy for extremists to flee to Myanmar by attacking India.
This attack on the Assam Rifles was carried out jointly by the militants of the People’s Liberation Army of Manipur and the Manipur Naga People’s Front. The camps of both these groups are present within the border of neighboring Myanmar and reports are pointing to the fact that the militants fled to the Myanmar border after carrying out the attack. India has a 1600 km long border with Myanmar. This range is filled with many hilly and inaccessible areas. This makes it easy for militants to flee to Myanmar after attacking India.
Naga, Manipuri and Assam militants have been making their bases in the Sagaing area of Myanmar for the past several years. From this they attack in India and then run back. These camps have been the subject of dispute between India and Myanmar for a long time, but in January 2019, when the Myanmar army took action on the camp of the rebels, it was believed that there has been a change in its policies. The Myanmar army carried out a clean-up operation in Taga, the self-proclaimed capital of Naga, Manipuri and Assam rebels. This improved relations between Myanmar and India.

Militants are attacking democracy supporters in Sagaing area
After this relationship and arms deal, India did not publicly oppose the military rebellion in Myanmar on 1 February. It is now learned that the Myanmar army is not only once again harboring militants from the Northeast, but is also using them to crush the pro-democracy People’s Defense Forces. These pro-democracy are taking on the army of Myanmar across the country. Militants from Manipur, who belong to the majority Meitei community, are attacking pro-democracy supporters in the Sagaing area. This area is on the other side of Moreh area of Manipur state of India. In return, they are being allowed to stay in Myanmar.
