United Naga Council (UNC), Manipur has served an ultimatum to the government of India urging the latter to hold tripartite talk within June 30, failing which, it said: “we wish to submit in all humility that Nagas in Manipur shall no longer participate in the exercise on tripartite talk.”
The UNC, in an ultimatum addressed to the Union home minister P. Chidambaram, reminded that its letter dated May 29 last had sought his “decisive and expeditious intervention” to save the process of tripartite dialogue from imminent derailment.
However, UNC said no response– positive or otherwise– has been received from the government. “You would kindly recall that the 3rd round of tripartite talk scheduled on the May 30, 2011 entirely on your intervention was abruptly cancelled in the garb of deferment for absolutely no justifiable reason,”UNC reminded the home minister.
It went on to assert that only one thing that stood out beyond any shadow of doubt was the “unbriddled arrogance and sheer irresponsibility” on the part of Manipur government and the union government “as evidenced in and through the GOI’s letter D.O. No. 8/8/2008-NE.1 dated May 28, 2011.” The UNC underlined that Nagas in Manipur “feel called upon to take on the challenge placed before us – the challenge being ‘to take our struggle to free ourselves from the hegemonic and colonial rule of the GoM’ forward at whatever cost howsoever painful.”
Therefore, the UNC said that if the process of tripartite talk failed, all responsible should know that Nagas were not to blame for “we have done our utmost in deference to your wish and advice.”
