Hundreds of Nagas from various places in Manipur joined the mass rally on Tuesday organized by the United Naga Council (UNC), Manipur at Senapati district pressing the Centre to hasten the “Indo-Naga peace process”.
The rally started from six different places and converged at the main stadium where a public meeting was held.
Leaders of the UNC who delivered their speeches at the meeting alleged that Centre was using ‘delay-tactics’ and urged the intervention of International communities to expedite the process.
If the Centre was sincere in bringing about an honourable and acceptable settlement for the “Indo-Naga” issue, it will help promote peace in the entire South Asian region, the UNC said.
Various slogans like “Sincerity and pragmatism- key to restoration of peace, don’t disturb the peace negotiation, we support Indo-Naga peace process, 13 years of peace negotiation-time for international community to intervene, expedite peace process” were voiced during the rally.
A memorandum was also submitted to the Prime Minister, Dr Manmohan Singh through the Senapati DC which urged the PM’s office to take forward the peace process to a logical conclusion at the earliest and thereby usher in an era of peace and stability to the Indian sub-continent.
“We, the Nagas in the present state of Manipur extend our heartfelt gratitude to your (PM Dr Manmohan Singh) leadership for upholding the Indo-Naga Ceasefire and taking up he Indo-Naga peace process,” the memorandum stated.
The memorandum was signed by presidents of seven Naga based civil organisations who expressed grave concern while observing the peace process has been tardy.
If the peace process is not translated into a reality with sincerity and political will, the lasting peace lies before could be wasted for both the “Great Indian National and the Nagas, it reminded the Prime Minister.
Samson Remei (president of UNC, Manipur), M Dili (president of NPO), Solomon Ningshen (president of Tankhul Naga Long, Ukhrul), Grace T Shatsang (president of Naga Women’s Union Manipur), St Nunghlug (president of Chandel Naga People’s Organisation), Adani David Mao (All Naga Students’ Association Manipur) and A Ashohrii (general secretary, UNC Manipur) were the signatories of the memorandum.
Leaders of the UNC delivered their peace at the meeting.
