A public peace rally, hosted by Longmai (Noney) Area Villages Council, was carried out in Manipur’s Noney district on Monday urging to ‘stop human slaughter’ and to give peace a chance.

The peace rally was organised in the back drop of recent gun fight between two rival outfits actively operating in the area that killed one. During the rally in which hundreds of denizens took part, placards with various slogans like we condemn killing in cold blood, stop gun culture, give peace a chance, love your identity, govt of Manipur maintains law and orders in hill areas, stop human slaughter etc were displayed.

Tension has been prevailing in Longmai or Noney in the last few days after a gun fight between NSCN(I-M) and ZUF at Khumji-II, Noney on August 7. Alleged threats to the leaders of some Zeliangrong based civil bodies opposing trifurcation of Zeliangrong have also been reported.  In the gun fight, a former NSCN-K cadre Gaibungpou, who defected to NSCN (I-M), was killed.

Meanwhile, at a meeting after the rally, a four-point declaration was adopted which includes ‘not to allow any underground/factions taking shelter among the civilians and to move around wielding gun in public area.’

Asserting that early solution to Naga issue was the ardent aspiration of every individual of the area, the second declaration said, “We pledge our strong unflinching support towards this end (Naga issue) for lasting peace and development”. At the same time, the meeting also declared that no individual of the area (Noney) should be an informant to any group or faction and “if anyone is found to be after this declaration, he/she would be considered as abettor who is liable to be disassociated from the area”.
