Doubts on Naga peace accord intensified: UCM
“Naga interlocutor, RN Ravi said Naga’s unique history is more organised as compared to Meitei’s. However, several ethnic groups of Manipur are included to build up Naga’s aspiration and make its history unique.” said UCM secretary, Kh. Athouba.
He was speaking at the ‘Tarpon Katpa’ ritual organised today by UCM for the 18 martyrs who sacrificed their lives to protect the territorial integrity of the State.
He said Naga’s history was elaborated on a nomenclature recognised by the government of India which led to the convolution of between Manipur and Naga’s history. The government of India is taking advantage of the segregation of Manipur and Naga, he alleged.
While stating that it is high time the people of Manipur stood up against India’s government melodrama, Athouba said we have to face the crafty policies of the government of India.
He further alleged that the State government is still a novice and yet to know the details inside the Naga peace accord. It is not the time for the State government to remain idle but to unite with the people and plan a formidable solution for the future of the State.
UCM president, Sunil Karam said the people of the State will never forget the 18 martyrs who gave their lives to protect the integrity of Manipur. The people will face every hurdle which will jeopardise the integrity of the state, he said.
The Indian government and NSCN (IM) have signed a framework agreement on August 2015, which is likely to bring to an end, have been kept confidential up to date raising scepticism to the State. From time to time, the State has met RN Rabi to discuss the agreement and also, have submitted several memoranda to the centre, including the Prime Minister, to safeguard its integrity. Yet, the State has received no competent response from the centre which has further intensified the doubts raised over the agreement, he said.
Besides, Sunil said UCM has set up an Alert Campaign Committee which will organise a “one-day public meeting on the possible settlement on Naga peace accord” on September 19, 2019, at Lamyanba Shanglen. He appealed the public to take part in the meeting to develop a strategy to safeguard the State’s integrity and to avoid having the same fate similar to Kashmir.
