‘We will fight for justice in Naga-land’
NSUD demanded CBI enquiry into brutal killing of civilians in August 30 Ukhrul rally
DIMAPUR, AUGUST 31
The Naga Student Union Delhi (NSUD) expressed its extreme displeasure against the government of Manipur for its inhuman and callous treatment on civilians at a rally organized on August 30 by the United Naga Council (UNC), the apex body of the Nagas inhabiting in Manipur.
“Words are insufficient in condemning the GoM’s brutal way of snatching the lives of three young and promising men from the Naga community and causing grave injuries to hundreds of peaceful demonstrators,” stated a release issued by NSUD.
The student union said, indiscriminate and deliberate firing by an agency of the state government on unarmed civilians during the rally has clearly shown that the Nagas in Manipur cannot live with the dominion community under one administrative roof any longer. “The communal colour of the state government has been repeatedly displayed and there is no respite from its oppressive approach toward the Naga people.”
NSUD extended heartfelt condolences to the family and kin of those who laid down their lives for the cause and dignity of the Nagas. “We will continue this fight and strive for truth and justice in Naga-land.”
Acknowledging the courage and sacrifice of its ‘heroes and martyrs’ the NSUD said, “they shall continue to inspire generations to come in our fight against tyrant rulers and undemocratic governments.”
Stating that revoking of CrPC 144 in Ukhrul is not enough, the NSUD demanded CBI enquiry into the brutal killing of unarmed civilians and immediate intervention of the Government of India for a lasting political solution.
