Naga Students’ Federation (NSF) and Karbi Students’ Association (KSA) held a joint meeting in Dimapur on Monday following the admonition issued by All Assam Manipuri Students’ Union Karbi Anglong District Council (AAMSUKDC) to take up a counter economic blockade. Significantly, the KSA decided to abstain from the proposed rally organized by the AAMSUKDC at Sukhanjan on May 26 in protest against the economic blockade on NH 39 imposed by NSF. Addressing a press conference at Hotel Nagi, NSF president, Mutsikhoyo Yhobu termed the fallout of the Mao gate incident as ‘very unfortunate’ for Meiteis. The NSF reaffirmed that the economic blockade would continue till the section 144 Cr PC was revoked in Naga inhabited areas of Manipur and the Manipur chief minister tendered unconditional apology to the Nagas. He alleged that the Meiteis were misleading the neighboring states and have failed to understand the Nagas. KSA president Stalyn Ingti appealed to the civil societies and government of Manipur to convene a meeting with the NSF so that a peaceful solution could be hammered out. He also urged the NSF to maintain peace and not to disturb the peaceful coexistence with the Manipuris of Nagaland. Meanwhile, a joint press statement signed by presidents of NSF and KSA stated that the two student bodies decided to work together on all aspects, reaffirm the age-old relationship between Nagas and Karbis and urge the neighboring communities to respect and appreciate each other’s rights.
