With 20 days deadline set to expire on October 19 for AA…. UNC kickstarts mobilisation drive

Imphal, Oct 13 : The United Naga Council (UNC) has begun its mobilization in ‘Naga areas’ in Manipur regarding the ‘Alternative Arrangement’ model while asking the Nagas to remain prepared for any even-tuality after October 19.

Sources informed Newmai News Network tonight that under the aegis of the UNC the Naga leaders held its meeting in Chandel district headquarters on October 12 and a similar meeting was held in Ukhrul district on today.

The sources said 20 days time have been given to the Government of India to fulfil the demand for the ‘Alternative Arrangement’ for the Nagas in Manipur.

“We are mobilising the people in Naga areas asking them to remain prepared to face any eventuality if our demand is not met by October 19,” said the sources.

It is worth noting that on October 3 last, the United Naga Council (UNC) had threatened to agitate in the manner it had violently resorted to last year if the demand for the ‘alternative arrangement’ outside the Government of Manipur is not granted within 20 days counting from September 29.

The UNC said it had communicated with New Delhi on September 29 in connection with the ‘alternative arrangement’ for the Nagas in Manipur.

Highlighting the background on the demand for the ‘alternative arrangement’,  the UNC had  said, “ When the tripartite talk of the government of Manipur , government of India and the Nagas in Manipur under the aegis of the United Naga Council(UNC) was initiated by the Hon’ble Home Minister of India in September 2010, the agitation programme launched by the Nagas in Manipur to demand for the intervention of the government of India with an alternative arrangement outside the government of Manipur was withdrawn as a confidence building measure for all concerned.

Now after more than 1 year of submission of the memorandum in demand of alternative arrangement for the Nagas in Manipur and three rounds of tripartite talk, there has been no forward movement in addressing the core issue of the demand.

On the other hand, the democratic process of dialogue has been subjected to the comfort, approach and position of the communal government of Manipur,” said the UNC today. It had also said the situation in the present state of Manipur, it had been reiterated, is fragile, sensitive and delicate with grave potential for communal confrontation and violence which could possibly lead to catastrophic consequences.

The UNC added that the democratic process of tripartite talk had kept in check the injured sentiments of the Nagas in Manipur with the expectation of a peaceful negotiation. But now the Nagas are of the considered view that nothing positive can come out of the tripartite talk. But the suppression and exploitation of the Nagas in particular and the tribals in general by the communal government of Manipur cannot be allowed to continue any further, the Naga body stated.

“Therefore in a communication to the Government of India on the 29th of September, 2011, the United Naga Council , in response to the former’s request for a “concept paper” on alternative arrangement for the consideration of the govrnment of Manipur, has requested the government of India to initiate the process of intervention with an alternative arrangement outside the government of Manipur for the Nagas in Manipur within 20 days of that date and should the same be not forthcoming, the Nagas will have no option but to revert back to sustained agitation till our demand for an alternative arrangement is met. This stand has been taken because the demand for alternative arrangement cannot be a matter of consideration by the government of Manipur and to urge for an early intervention by the government of India”,  the UNC had cautioned.

NSUD takes anti-Sadar Hills stand to PM

NSUD on anti-Sadar Hills district protestNEW DELHI, Oct 13 : Calling upon the Prime Minister of India to inter-vene for non creation of Sadar Hills District in Mani-pur, the Naga Students’ Union Delhi ( NSUD) today held a protest demon-stration in New Delhi.

A memorandum for the same cause was also submitted to the Prime Minister.

Students shouted “We are against Sadar Hills District creation”, “Ibobi’s policy is to divide and rule”, “No Sadar Hills district without the consent of the Nagas”, “We don’t want bloodshed”, “Sadar Hills is a bloodshed” etc.

Student leader Joshua said, “We came here today to protest against the proposed creation of Sadar Hills district. We believe that the Govt of Manipur should think over it so that we can all live together peacefully”.

On the question of UNC’s counter blockade, the student leader  said, “the UNC is an apex body, we stand by their stand and support.”

A practising Advocate in Delhi,  Worso Zimik who participated in the protest told media persons that the Manipur Government has been indirectly supporting the Sadar hills district demand and therefore the continued silence on the issue and moreover to create conflict between the tribals.

“Nagas are fully against the Manipur Government as much as the Manipur Govt is against the Nagas” said Zimik.

On the question of NSCN’s role and involvement in the anti-Sadar hills district stir, the Advocate said “any Nagas  or any organization are all Nagas.”

Stating that the protest demonstration was staged as the Manipur Chief Minister had come  was staged as the Manipur Chief Minister had come to Delhi to meet the Prime Minister, Worso Zimik said “this is very crucial for the Nagas, as the meeting is to prepare the groundwork for creation of Sadar Hills District with the consent of the Government of India but without consent of the Nagas.”  “This is a ploy of the Manipur Government at the expense of the Nagas”, he added.    Over the possible outcome if Sadar Hill district was created , Advocate Zimik affirmed “This would ignite bloodshed”

On the matter of Sadar Hills being an Autonomous District Council, wherein the demand was upgradation to a full fledged district and that its has already existing areas of administration. Advocate Zimik countered “the ADC is not functioning, it is not legal.”

He further claimed that Nagas are the original land owners and that the present inhabitants are from “outside”.

Upon the State Government’s move for reorganization of district boundaries. Worso Zimik  opined that the intention is to bifurcate Naga areas.  It is also a move to create Meitei district such as Jiribam.

Meanwhile Chief Minister O Ibobi Singh met the Union Home Minister P Chidambaram today afternoon.

Sources from media reported that the Chief Minister informed that no decision has taken and would not be taken until the District re-organization committee submits its report.  Reportedly the Home Minister asked the Chief Minister to brief him on the situation and whether the CM would require his support.  The CM also reported that State Assembly elections would be held in February next year.

Till the time of this reporting there has been no report of any discussion upon the ongoing economic blockade.
