SENAPATI, JUL 30 | Publish Date: 7/30/2021 11:17:26 AM IST

There will a “total shut down” from midnight of August 2 till 12 noon of August 3 in all the “Naga areas” in Manipur for 12 hours “to demonstrate our strong support to the Framework Agreement and also in protest against its failure to materialise even after prayerfully waiting for six long years,” said United Naga Council (UNC). Informing this in a statement issued, UNC said that it was doing this by way of observing the anniversary of the signing of the “Indo-Naga Framework Agreement” which was signed on August 3, 2015 in New Delhi.  According to UNC, whatever it will demonstrate on August 3 will be done by strictly observing COVID-19 SOPs/guidelines. In this regard, UNC “directed tribe presidents” to ensure that the “total shutdown” is strictly enforced in their respective jurisdictions.

Meanwhile, All Naga Students’ Association, Manipur (ANSAM) has expressed appreciation the initiative of the Parliamentary Core Committee on Naga Political Issue of Nagaland state government for facilitating a reconciliatory process for the “Naga Political Groups” (NPGs).

“We are grateful to all the Naga national political leaders for their leadership and standing firm and their willingness to hammer out differences towards an honorable and logical solution for our land and people,” ANSAM said in a press release.
