Senapati, January 07 2017:
Today's meeting of the Naga organisations and leaders under the banner of the United Naga Council (UNC) affirmed to 'utilise all available resources' in the intensified agitation against the Government of Manipur.
Besides the UNC executives, Naga frontal organisations, leaders and activists participated in the day long meeting held at Senapati town over the district creation issue.
According to the UNC, all available resources will be used while carrying out the ongoing agitation including the picketing of Government offices, economic blockade and the banning of the construction of Trans Asian Railways, Jiribam to Tupul and other National projects in all the "Naga territories" in Manipur.
On December 28, the Naga people's consultation under the banner of the United Naga Council (UNC) held at Senapati had resolved to launch 'democratic picketing' of State Government offices in 'Naga districts' from midnight of December 31, 2016 and prevent the district administration from functioning.
This additional mode of agitation was launched even as the ongoing economic blockade continues.
Educational institutions, medical services, and power sector are exempted from being picketed.
"We are not targeting any community.
We are protesting against the communal Government of Manipur," UNC general secretary S Milan said.
Meanwhile, before the meeting was held today, a one minute standing-in-silence was observed to pay respect to Late Prof Gangmumei Kamei who passed away a few days back in Imphal.
