The Northeastern state of Manipur has been embroiled in a bloody conflict with the Indian State. This insurgency is a part of the wider insurgency in Northeast India. it combines elements of a national liberation war as well as an ethnic conflict. Manipur joined the Indian Union on 21 October 1949. Shortly after acceding with India, a number of insurgent groups were formed that demanded secession from India.

On 24 November 1964, United National Liberation Front (UNLF), a separatist faction was founded. Until 1991 they did not resort to arms. The People's Liberation Army of Manipur (PLA), the People's Revolutionary Party of Kangleipak (PREPAK), and the Kangleipak Communist Party (KCP) were formed between 1977 and 1980. They immediately joined the war after their formation.
