Pointing out that the government of India has not addressed the issues relating to the Nagas living in Manipur even after 39 days of the temporary suspension of the economic blockade, the United Naga Council, Tahamzam, Senapati has threatened to resume the agitation.
UNC president Samsom Remei and general secretary, A. Ashohrii in an ultimatum to the prime minister said it would resume its agitation if the government of India did not intervene within five days into the following issues: Institute a judicial enquiry into the May 6 incident at Mao Gate, where two students were shot dead and more than 100 peaceful protestors wounded by the Manipur State Armed forces; immediate withdrawal of the imposed section of 144 CrPC and demilitarization of Naga areas by removal of the Indian Reserve Battalion and Manipur Police Commandos; removal of “wanted” tag and fixing of rewards imposed on Naga leaders and dissolution of the undemocratically instituted Autonomous District Councils.
The UNC said that the step was an expression of their democratic rights and would be intensified in different forms and at different levels till the issues were addressed in the right perspective. The UNC reiterated its strong commitment and support to the “Indo-Naga” peace process to its logical conclusion.
The UNC stated that the respect and honour with which the request of the centre was conceded in temporarily suspending the blockade has not been reciprocated.
