In a significant development, a five member team of the Coalition for Indigenes' Rights Campaign (CIRCA) met representatives of the United Naga Council (UNC) at Senapati district headquarters today and highlighted the immense suffering of the people in different parts of the State due to the economic blockade, which came into force from November 1 .
In a statement, the media co-ordinator of CIRCA said that during the discussion session, the UNC members said that it would be in the fitness of things for the Government to keep in mind the interest and well being of all communities while taking any decision.
The UNC members also expressed their idea on how they may put across certain points to the Government so that the blockade may be lifted, said CIRCA.
Today's meeting with the UNC was line with the discussion session organised by CIRCA on December 5 on the theme, 'Ethnic Divide-A challenge to the future of the Indigenes' and the decision 'action for reconciliation and concession building' taken therein after the discussion session, added the statement.
