UNC Boycott Call Paves Way For Tamenglong Bandh

IMPHAL, Dec 9: Endorsing the stand of the United Naga Council (UNC) against the participation of the State Chief Minister, Council of Ministers and MLAs in the forthcoming State Level Orange Festival in Tamenglong headquarters, the Naga Youth Front (NYF) has called a 48-hour Tamenglong district bandh starting from December 10 midnight.

Echoing the boycott call  of the UNC, the Naga Youth Front said that it is upholding the July 1, Naga People’s Convention (NPC) declaration to sever all ties with the Government of Manipur at Senapati district headquarters.

The Orange Festival has been slated for Ministers and the MLAs to keep themselves away from the Orange Festival, December 11 and 12. ‘The government of Manipur will be responsible for any consequences thereof,’ cautions the Naga Youth Front.

Mentionably, two days ago the United Naga Council (UNC) had urged the Zeliangrong people to prevent the chief minister of Manipur, his council of ministers and MLAs from participating the forthcoming Orange Festival to be held in Tamenglong district headquarters.

‘At the backdrop of this development, the UNC reminds the Zeliangrong people in particular and Nagas in general to uphold the Naga decision and stop unwanted persons from inaugurating and  participating in the said festival because it will amount to re-terrorizing the tribals . However, UNC encourages the spirit of the festival,’ the Naga body said, adding, ‘It is apprehended that their coming is bound to disturb the prevailing peaceful atmosphere in the hills’.

The NYF said that the participation of the chief minister, ministers and MLAs in the event is bound to create disturbances of the peaceful atmosphere. ‘The government of Manipur under the leadership of chief minister O.Ibobi Singh has records of terrorizing the innocent Naga public and because of this we have apprehension of the recurrence of such ugly episode,’ asserted the Naga Youth Front.
