With the blockade entering 21 days people in the state particularly those in the valley and those in the interior part of the state has been facing severe hardship due to the price hike of essential commodities. During the indefinite blockade, before the UNC president Gaidon Kamei and Publicity Secretary Stephen Lamkang were arrested, two loaded trucks ferrying rice and chicken feed were set ablaze by blockade supporters. Many loaded trucks coming towards Imphal were also held captive by supporters of UNC.

The committee also resolved to seek appointment of Prime Minister, Union Home Minister and interlocutor of the Indian Government for Peace talk with NSCN-IM RN Ravi.
Naga Students’ Union , Delhi (NSUD) has been assigned to spearhead other form of agitation which will be follow up as a part of the movement. the student body has also been directed to take support of other Nga civil bodies based at Dalhi.
Here in the state, the UNC had given ultimatum of 48 hours for release of the two leaders which ended yesterday. As of now the UNC has not announced any other form of agitation besides intensifying the economic blockade along the two National high ways.

Naga civil societies especially those in Delhi should understand that highway blockade done by UNC is illegal to the law of the country and those responsible will be punished and law will take its own course. My summation is that any form of protest regarding this in delhi and elswere will be futile and will find no takers at thd center.

Bunch of illeterate kids. Those members act like terrorists. Who gave them the power to impose economic blockade? Jesus gave you the power? And fucking retarded assholes vandalised properties in the name of economic blockade. It is the 21st century. Its high time that you people come out of your hills. Acting strong in your hills will also affect those hilly regions near the valley. Fucking retarded people.
