Naga body to submit memorandum to PM Modi today
Source: Chronicle News Service / Newmal News Network

Imphal, August 08 2023: United Naga Council (UNC) will submit a memorandum to Prime Minister Narendra Modi at the end of Wednesday's rallies through deputy commissioners.

Sources informed Newmai News Network on Tuesday that the memorandum will "strongly stress" on two points.

The first point presses the PM "for translation of the Framework Agreement, which was signed between the Government of India and the NSCN-IM eight years ago in New Delhi, into political reality for enduring peace", The UNC memorandum stresses that, according to the sources, "Naga National flag arid Constitution must be an integral part...".

The sources continued that the second point of the UNC memorandum asserted that "Naga areas" should not be touched while attempting to address demands of "any other community".

This assertion of the UNC comes at the backdrop of the demand for "separate administration" by a certain community in Manipur.

In the memorandum, according to the sources, the UNC warns that "such misadventures will have serious ramifications that will provoke further senseless violence..." .

This expression of the UNC is actually the continuation of what the Naga body had told Union home minister Amit Shah on May 31 through a memorandum.

In that representation, the UNC had sent out a strong message to the Government of India that the "Nagas will not accept any disintegration of Naga areas in attempting to address any appeal or demand by any community" .

The UNC had also cautioned in the May 31 memorandum to Amit Shah that "breaking up Naga areas or adversely affecting the Nagas in any way will have serious ramification..." .

In that memorandum to Amit Shah, the UNC had also said that the Government of India must uphold the sanctity of the "historic FA of August 3, 2015, in letter and spirit for enduring and peaceful co-existence of India and the Nagas and to expeditiously translate the same into a political reality".

Meanwhile, the Naga Hoho said on Tuesday that it "unequivocally extends its unwavering support to the UNC's call for rallies in the Naga areas of Manipur on Wednesday, to address the longstanding Naga political issue based on the historic FA signed between the Government of India and the NSCN (GPRN) on August 3, 2015" .

For decades, the Nagas have endured immense challenges in their pursuit of political justice and recognition of their identity, the Naga Hoho also stated.

The FA represents a ray of hope and a crucial step towards resolving the longstanding conflict.

It is essential for the Government of India to fulfil its promise and refrain front further delay or denial in the Indo-Naga process, it added.

The statement also conveyed, "We firmly believe that resolving the Naga conflict is not only crucial for the Nagas but also for the entire Northeast region.

A lasting peace in the Northeast will undoubtedly have positive geostrategic and economic implications, fostering stability and development for India and the Nagas, as well as the neighbouring nations in the region".

It also stressed the Nagas have a historical and legitimate claim to their ancestral land and have consistently upheld their right to self-determination.

Naga Hoho further urged the Government of India to honour its commitment regarding the FA and engage in honest and productive dialogues with the Nagas to find a comprehensive and inclusive solution.

Denying or prolonging the Indo-Naga peace process will only perpetuate the suffering and uncertainty in the region, it also added.
