 The 3rd anniversary of signing of Framework Agreement between the Centre and NSCN (I-M) was observed in Ukhrul district on Friday.

Addressing the commemoration function, senior NSCN (I-M) leader MH Raikhan said that signing of Framework Agreement was a great achievement for the Nagas and added that it has brought the Naga political movement forward.

He added that after the signing of the agreement, leaders of both the two entities have been relentlessly working to resolve the Indo -Naga political issue with an honourable solution. 

Claiming that government of India has now understood the Naga political issue, he said that Nagas have to be united for any common cause in order to safeguard our inherent rights. Chairman of Ukhrul Autonomous District Council (UADC) Dickson Kumrah asked the Tangkhul community to contribute their potential in the movement for Naga political solution for their self-determination and free from political domination.  

TNL president, in his welcome address, talked about how Naga living in the contiguous areas of Arunachal, Manipur, Assam, Nagaland and Burma had been suffering and endured from military atrocities. 

He claimed that India government, after realizing that Naga issue was a political problem and not military problem had signed the peace agreement with the leaders of NSCN (I-M). 

The commemoration function was attended by members of Ukhrul ADC, leaders of civil society organizations like TNL, TMNL, TKS and TSL.

Later, at the end of the commemoration program a memorandum was drafted by Tangkhul Naga Long (TNL) to be submitted to the Prime Minister through Ukhrul DC.

The memorandum contained three-point resolution, to keep the Framework Agreement as a bilateral one between the two competent entities asserting that “dilution of it sanctity in any form unacceptable to the Naga people and peace.” 

It stated that  delay and procrastination of the implementation of the Framework Agreement was dangerous for peace, and therefore should be brought to resolution at the earliest. 

The third point stated that “the peace effort between the two entities should not be contingent upon the whim and fancy of non-entity third party.” 

The memorandum was jointly signed by president of TNL, TMNL, TKS and TSL and four zonal chairmen of Tangkhul region.
