In the memorandum made available to media houses the UNC term the Manipur Police Commando personnel as indiscipline force. It said that a 24 hour peaceful total bandh in Naga areas was observed with effect from the midnight of 15th July, 2014 in protest against the highly vitiated situation brought about by the Government of Manipur(GoM) after promulgating Section 144 of Cr. PC in Ukhrul district headquarters in the wake of the killing of one Mr Ngalangzar Malue by unidentified person on 12th July, 2014.“The sentiment of the Naga people on the militarization of Ukhrul town with the deployment of Manipur Police Commandos and the IRBs who are well known for their notoriety, indiscipline and disregard for human lives and Rights was demonstrated loud and clear”, it added.Terming the government of Manipur communal the memorandum stated that in the four Imphal valley districts, hundreds of innocent mainland Indian (non-Meiteis) businessmen have killed and maimed by valley based undergrounds under the very nose of the Chief Minister of Manipur. Bombings and shootings are routine and even the Chief Minister’s official residence has been attacked 3 times. In sharp contrast to the Naga areas, the Disturbed Area Act has been conveniently lifted from 7 Assembly segments of greater Imphal.The UNC further demanded immediate intervention of the Prime Minister to the present militarization in Ukhrul town and urged him to make an alternative administrative arrangement for Naga Inhabited areas. The memorandum stated that the Nagas in Manipur have declared on the 1st July, 2010 the severance of political ties with the GoM due to unmistakable facts that it is impossible to protect our right to life, land, time-honored institutions, customary practices and values under the administration of the dominant and communal GoM. Consequently the Government of India (GoI) initiated the process of tripartite talk of the GoI, GoM and the United Naga Council(UNC) to address the demand for an alternative arrangement outside the GoM, pending settlement of the Indo-Naga issue. In the 7th tripartite talk held on 6th February, 2014 it was agreed that a high powered committee would be instituted by the GoI to translate the demand of alternative arrangement into a political reality.
