Nagas in Manipur under the aegis of United Naga Council (UNC) have started concerted awareness campaigns to understand their age-old “friends and traditional boundaries”.
Under these campaigns the UNC is making efforts to make the Nagas understand as to “who are our historical friends” and who are not. The campaigns are also aimed at making the people understand as “with whom we share our traditional boundaries”. The UNC also said that “new comers are diluting traditional boundaries and historical friendship of the Nagas.”
“To make a strong nation we need strong people,” said UNC President Gaidon Kamei while addressing the people at the campaign in Chandel district headquarters today. The programme was organized by Chandel Naga People’s Organisation (CNPO) under the banner of the UNC. Naga frontal organizations and students’ bodies of the district participated in today’s programme.
The UNC President called on the Naga people to protect their traditional boundaries so that they remain intact. Kamei also urged the Nagas to know “who are our historical friends,” while adding, “We Nagas must respect them”.
According to the UNC leader, they have started the campaign as such programmes have “become a matter of urgency given the prevailing scenario.”
Meanwhile, the UNC leaders said that these awareness campaigns will be carried out in all the Naga areas in Manipur.
