Coordination Committee of Naga Civil Societies(CCNCS) has said that despite opposition, it went ahead at initiating a meeting with the All Manipur United Clubs’ Organisation(AMUCO) at Guwahati and on the latter’s request for more time, the date was extended to May 14 .
However, even after extension of the date , CCNCS expressed disappointment that AMUCO again said it would not be able to attend due to “prevailing situation” in Manipur.
In the light of AMUCO’s refusal, CCNCS said a meeting was held at Kohima with the Naga Hoho, Naga Mothers’ Association,Naga Students Federation, Naga Peoples Movement for Human Rights, United Naga Council(Manipur),Naga Women Union Manipur,All Naga Students Association Manipur and Tenyimia Women Organisation.
CCNCS convenor Neigulo Krome,joint convenor Kenyuseng Tep and member secretary Rosemary Dzüvichü said the meeting noted that the offer to AMUCO came even as Nagas had just buried those killed, nursing the injured and hundreds who have been displaced.
The meeting regretted that despite “these humiliations” Naga civil societies sought to walk the extra mile by inviting “people who are responsible for these tragedies” for a face to face talk so as to explore all options to restore normalcy, as people deserved to live in peace.
However, it regretted that the initiatives of the CCNCS for peaceful resolution was “again turned down” by AMUCO.
Further, they pointed out that even in the recent years including the June 18,2001 “Manipur Uprising” against the extension of the cease fire “without territorial limit”, the Meitei society organizations had refused even to respond to the invitation for talks.
CCNCS also said it was unfortunate that Nagas have always been projected as the “bad guys” adding, their enthusiasm for peace, despite provocations were “thoroughly misunderstood”.
In the light of these, the meeting of civil bodies Friday made two demands on the Manipur government –(1)withdraw all its polics,IRB and command forces from the hill district and (2)withdraw all restrictions on movement of Nagas including that of general secretary NSCN/GPRN.
The meeting also resolved that Naga people would not be responsible for any eventualities following the rejection of its peace overture.
It may be recalled, that CCNCS had initiated the proposal for a face-to-face meet with Meitei civil societies under AMUCO at Guwahati on May 13.AMUCO responded via media that it needed more time and eventually expressed inability owing to the “prevailing situation”in Manipur arising out of the road blockage by NSF.
