DIMAPUR — In response to the quit notice served to the Mao community by the Southern Angami Public Organisation (SAPO) and the Angami Youth Organisation (AYO), the United Naga Council (UNC) on Thursday underscored the need for a rational approach to address the underlying issues.

The UNC, in a press release, noted that land disputes are common among Naga villages, given the overlapping traditional boundaries. Recognising the potential for further escalation and division within the communities, it appealed to both the parties to refrain from exacerbating tensions and instead, embrace the tenets of peace, love and forgiveness.

Citing reports that the Mao Council responded to the ultimatum by meeting key demands, including the restoration of a rest house, lifting of CrPc 144, and relocation of security personnel from the disputed area, the UNC pointed out that the Tenyimi People’s Organisation (TPO) had also inspected the area and confirmed compliance with the ultimatum, as a step towards peaceful resolution and restoration of peace and tranquillity between the two kindred tribes.

In this context, the UNC appealed to the SAPO and Mao Council to cooperate fully with the TPO in the pursuit of justice and honour its verdict as per Naga customary law.
