Will confront any endeavour to derail Framework Agreement: UNC

Newmai News Network

Senapati | August 7


The United Naga Council (UNC) strongly asserted today that it will confront any endeavour which is working to derail the finalization of the “Indo-Naga Framework Agreement” in any form.


“While the whole Naga people are hopefully and prayerfully waiting for the finalisation of the historic Indo-Naga Framework Agreement, the UNC will confront anything that will be detrimental and damaging to the finalisation of the historic Indo-Naga Framework Agreement in any form,” the Naga body said. UNC also affirmed that the Naga people will not be held responsible for any fallout and untoward eventuality.


According to the UNC, Nagas are closely watching all the activities of “other communities of the present state” opposing the finalisation of the “hard earned historic Indo-Naga Framework Agreement”  signed between the Government of India and the National socialist Council of Nagalim (NSCN) on August 3, 2015 in New Delhi.


UNC was also irked by the Kuki Inpi, Manipur (KIM)’s August 8 bandh while terming it as unwarranted and uncalled for. “According to a news item appearing in some local dailies that the Kuki Inpi, Manipur (KIM) had announced to a call 24-hour total shut down from 6 am of August 8 is very unwarranted and uncalled for,” the UNC said. It then cautioned that the Naga people “will never stay away from anything that will tarnish or serve detrimental consequences to the Indo-Naga peace process which had begun prior to India’s Independence of August, 1947.”


The UNC then directed that any “unmandated or unauthorized” Naga individual, organization,  political  leader, political party or elected representative should not, in any way, express “in words or deeds” which are detrimental and damaging to the “established” Naga political position both inside and outside the Assembly/Parliament.
