The visit of centre’s team along with ministers of Manipur state to Tahamzam (Senapati headquarter) on Saturday was greeted by the Naga people with a lightning bandh. According to the publicity wing of All Naga Students’ Association, people responded to the visit with closure of all shops and establishments and complete halt of vehicular and pedestrian movement. Student volunteers blocked the highway and burnt tyres in the middle of the town and also put up placards at different spots reminding the ministerial team that the Nagas area was “no more under the Manipur map.” The United Naga Council, All Naga Association and other Naga organisations refused to meet the team led by the “communal Manipur state ministers” since the Nagas have severed political ties with the “communal government of Manipur.” The students’ association said the Nagas wanted the government of India’s intervention with an alternative arrangement as declared in the Naga peoples Convention (NPC) on August 1 at Tahamzam. It said that the ministerial team was seen meeting some few district level officers in the chamber of the deputy commissioner. The Nagas fixed the responsibility on the cabinet ministers of Manipur who ordered the IRBs and Commandos to Mao Gate and killed two students on May 6. The students’ said that the boycott was a reminder that Nagas would meet the government of India only.
