UNLF Chairman RK Meghen received a grand welcome upon his arrival at the Imphal airport on Thursday.

Meghen alias Sanayama has returned to the state after 44 long years. Released on November 9 from the Guwahati central jail, Meghen was taken away by the security agencies and kept at an undisclosed location in Delhi.

17 days later, Meghen along with his son and lawyer have been allowed to return to Manipur.

According to sources, officials of the Union Home Ministry had then ‘requested ‘ Meghen to not travel to Manipur, where the “situation is volatile”, with the Naga peace talks yet to be concluded.

Talking to media persons upon his arrival, Meghen said he was happy to return to the state.
Meghen added that he was treated very well in Delhi during his 17 day stay there. The UNLF chief refused to make any comments on peace negotiations.
