Imphal, Aug 9:

Large number of people today staged rally in all Naga-inhabited regions of Manipur demanding a successful conclusion of the peace talk between the Naga Groups and the Government of India (GoI) based on the Framework Agreement signed between the collective leadership of the NSCN-IM and the GoI on August 3, 2015.
The rally organised by the United Naga Council (UNC) staged at the district headquarters of Tamenglong, Senapati, Ukhrul and Chandel amid tight security, also strongly opposed to infringing of Naga inhabited areas to the demand for separate administration by any community in Manipur.
In Tamenglong district headquarter around ten thousand people take part in ‘Naga People’s Rally’. The rally started at Jadonang Park and proceeded through more than 3 km-long stretch and will end at Apollo Ground.
People hold placards like ‘Respect the Unique History and situation of Nagas’ Resolve Indo-Naga Political Issue’ Naga People’s Rally for resolving Indo-Naga Political Issue based on Framework Agreement’ “No Impose Solution’, ‘Nagas plead for return of peace and normalcy in Manipur’ Naga Flag, Constitution and Integration are Inalienable rights of the Naga people’.
Addressing the public, UNC Working Committee Secretary Ch. Thotsho said Naga issue is a Political issue not law and order issue.
“We demand sovereign power; we are never part of neither India or Myanmar. Naga people have a Unique History and position. Sovereign lies in two entities that are Nagas and India’s which is clearly mentioned in the Framework Agreement which was signed on 3rd August 2015″, Ch. Thotsho said. He appealed to the public of Tamenglong to stand united and we shall overcome someday.
Later, Memorandum was submitted to Prime Minister, Modi through the Deputy Commissioner Tamenglong District.
In Ukhrul district head quarter, the mass rally started from Mission Ground and proceeded for more than 3 km before converging at Mini Secretariat, Ukhrul district.
The rallyists held placards demanding the conclusion of the peace talks and that Naga areas must not be disintegrated.
Thousands of people also participated in rallies in Senapati and Chandel districts.
The UNC, in a statement, earlier said that the peace process made significant progress with the signing of the historic Framework Agreement between the Centre and the NSCN(IM) on August 3, 2015.
“The inordinate delay in signing the final agreement is a cause of concern and has the potential to derail the peace negotiation,” it said.
