IMPHAL, June 23: The United Naga Council (UNC) has termed the statement of the so called ‘Naga Crusaders’ as a ‘fictitious publication’ and strongly condemned it. The UNC demanded from Nagaland Post newspaper to come out openly in this connection while identifying who the so called ‘Naga Crusaders’ are.
The UNC was reacting to the June 22 edition of Dimapur based daily Nagaland Post where the so called ‘Naga Crusaders’ in its purported press release had served a quit notice to Meiteis living in the hill districts of Manipur with July 10 as the deadline given.
Informing this to Newmai News Network from Senapati this afternoon, the publicity wing of the United Naga Council said that since the opening of the Pandora’s Box by the State Government of Manipur, many unusual things are happening to the detriment of its people in particular and the North East people in general.
“The June 22 edition of Nagaland Post publication which carried a statement from the ‘Naga Crusaders’ informing the Meiteis residing/staying in the hill districts of Manipur to leave before 10th of July, 2011, contradicts the political approach and decision of the Nagas in Manipur,” it said.
The UNC asserted, “It is presumed that, such fictitious publication is a ploy to once again derail the ongoing political process. UNC believes in political talk and solution through talk.
We want peaceful parting of ways with our oppressors. We condemned the “ghost” (Naga Crusaders) notice as irrelevant, unhealthy, misguiding and against the spirit of peaceful resolution”.
The United Naga Council condemned and urged the Nagaland Post to “come out openly” in this regard for the good of all.
