KOHIMA — The mass rally called by the United Naga Council (UNC) in Senapati, Ukhrul, Chandel, and Tamenglong districts of Manipur, demanding the government of India to resolve the Indo-Naga political issue, ended peacefully on Wednesday.

Thousands of people participated in the rallies held in all the Naga-inhabited districts of Manipur before a memorandum was submitted to Prime Minister Narendra Modi through the DC of Senapati.

‘In the propitious rallies held on Wednesday in the Naga district headquarters, under the aegis of the UNC, the Naga people in the present state of Manipur wish to register once again our collective sentiment and earnest desire to the GoI for exercising its political will to conclude the protracted negotiation on the Indo-Naga political issue in the true spirit of the 2015 August 3 Framework Agreement (FA) signed between the GoI and the NSCN (IM),’ read the memorandum.

It called “upon the GoI to honour the Framework Agreement in letter and spirit by accepting the universal fact that sovereignty lies with the people and by extension, that the Naga National flag and constitution must be an integral part of the shared sovereignty”.

Maintaining that the Naga people will not accept disintegration of Naga land or any act that will adversely affect the interest of the Naga people while attempting to address demands of any other communities, it said such misadventure could provoke senseless violence.

Meanwhile, addressing the rally at Senapati headquarters, Solomon Arow, president of the Naga Peoples’ Organisation (NPO), pledged unwavering allegiance to the Framework Agreement, saying that regardless of the challenges ahead, the people are committed to standing by it with unyielding resolve until the very end.

In the meantime, he implored everyone to maintain patience and continue to wait for a final settlement with prayerful optimism.
