Imphal, November 30 2012: UNC has kick-started its grass-root level awareness campaign on Naga issue.
In its first leg, the UNC leaders landed at a village called Ramrei, which is situated in the adjoining place of Senapati and Ukhrul districts today and carried out a fiery campaign where the Naga leaders have told the gathering that the Indo-Naga political issue should be settled at the earliest. “If the Naga solution is not brought about at the earliest time the government of India should give the Alternative Arrangement to the Manipur Nagas pending Naga solution as the Nagas in Manipur have severed ties with the Manipur government and that Nagas can no longer live under the Manipur government,” UNC general secretary Gaidon Kamei told the gathering.
The UNC leaders and members of Alternative Arrangement demand committee including Ashinpao Gangmei and Milan Shimray also spoke on the ocassion. They clarified in today’s meeting that the UNC is never part and parcel of the NSCN-IM but stated, “Any Naga movement will be supported by the UNC” . The UNC had earlier issued written ‘guidelines’ to all the Naga tribe presidents and Naga frontal organisations to abide with when any eventuality crops up in their campaign for the ‘Alternative Arrangement’.
In the days to come, the UNC will touch most of the villages in the hill districts starting from today. TSE/NNN
