Kohima, January 03 2017:
Naga Hoho, the apex body of tribal organisations in Nagaland, today alleged despite prolonged turmoil in the Naga inhabited areas of Manipur, the Government of Manipur and the Centre have been maintaining lukewarm attitude towards the genuine demands of the people.
"The plight of the Naga people living in the Hill areas of Manipur has been suppressed by the Government of Manipur.
The sensitivity and seriousness to resolve the issue has not been addressed," Naga Hoho president P Chuba Ozukum and Assembly Secretary K Elu Ndang said in a release here.
Maintaining that the Naga Hoho believes in brotherhood and friendly relationship between the Nagas and Meiteis, they appealed to the Union Ministry of Home Affairs to intervene and summon a tripartite meet between the Government of Manipur and the United Naga Council (UNC) .
The Hoho appealed that the two officials of UNC, including the president, who are still in police custody should be released unconditionally before any dialogue.
"A solution to any problem or crisis could be brought only through dialogue across the table," the Hoho said.
