United Naga Council has intensified its pressure to the center by extending the on going blockade imposed along the National Highway 39 and 53 in Manipur by another 25 days, after the earlier blockade failed to evoke any response from the New Delhi to look into the demands of the Nagas in Manipur.
UNC publicity wing on Monday announced “the ongoing blockade has been extended to press its demand to the government of India to fill the vacuum created in the Naga areas after the apex Naga organisation in Manipur resolve to severe all political ties with the state government.” Therefore, the frontal Naga organistion in Manipur said it decided “to extend the ongoing economic blocked by another 25 days.”
Earlier, the UNC imposed 25-day economic blockade on the two arterial National Highways since August 4 and was supposed to end tomorrow at 6 am.
The UNC said that the centre have been given a stipulated time frame of 25 days to address the demands of the Nagas in Manipur. “The GOI has failed to fill the vacum in the Naga areas within the given time frame,” it stated.
