A joint review meeting on “Indo-Naga” peace process, organised by 

United Naga Council (UNC), the apex Naga organization in Manipur, under the aegis of the Naga Hoho at TNK, Senapati Community Hall on Thursday, expressed discontentment with “inordinate delay” in finalising the “historic Indo-Naga framework agreement” signed on August 3, 2015 in New Delhi.

The joint review meeting was attended by about 500 delegates including the UNC present and former executives, All Naga Students Association Manipur, Naga Women’s Union, Naga Peoples Movement for Human Rights, All Naga Tribe presidents from Manipur, senior advisers of the UNC and Naga leaders from four districts of Chandel, Senapati, Tamenglong and Ukhrul. 

At the meeting, the house unanimously urged the negotiating parties to bring an acceptable and honourable political settlement  in a time-bound manner.

The house also reaffirmed and called upon Nagas to remain united and support the historic hard earned peaceful “Indo-Naga” political issue till the political aspirations were achieved. It also affirmed that Nagas would not compromise their inherent rights under any circumstance. The house cautioned any Naga elected representative, political leader, political party, unmandated or unauthorized Naga individual or group not to attend or participate in any assembly or meeting that would sabotage the “Indo-Naga” peace process. The house declared that anyone defying the Naga political principle and its position would be treated as anti national and their entry into Naga territory would be banned. The declaration signed by NH president, Chuba Ozukum, and UNC president, Gaidon Kamei, read “the above declaration were made by the Naga people on this day, the 23rd August, 2018 at TNK, Community Hall, Senapati village, Tahamzam (Senapati).”

Earlier, a silent prayer in honour of late Isaac Chishi Swu, then chairman of NSCN (I-M) was also observed.

UNC president, Gaidon Kamei, delivered welcome and keynote address and NH president, Chuba Ozukum, spoke on review on “Indo-Naga” peace process.

The programme was chaired by UNC general secretary S. Milan, invocation prayer was said by pastor Taphou Naga Baptist church Rev. K. Daniel, vote of thanks was proposed by vice president UNC Ng. Lorho while closing prayer was given by pastor Christian church Senapati A. Pulle.
