On being asked about the Central government invitation to the UNC representatives, the Chief Minister said that the state government was informed about the invitation only at late hours.

As Delhi is a far away place from here we cannot go and attend immediately", the Chief Minister was indirectly hinting the central government negligence to the state government in the dealing of the issues relating to UNC. Okram Ibobi Singh however is silence to the demand of the Sadar Hills District as well as the opposition by the UNC to the creation of the Sadar Hill revenue district.
