Land is our inseparable and inalienable rights: UNC affirms

DIMAPUR:Accusing the government of Manipur of adopting a “communal” mindset in order to suppress people’s democratic movement for political rights and aspirations, the UNC today called for immediate attention of the Government of India for its political intervention.

The State government will be held solely responsible for any eventualities resulting out of the hindrance of the political aspirations of the Nagas and the tribals, the United Naga Council warned in a press note issued through its general secretary, S Milan.

Consequently, the Council also ‘out-rightly’ condemned  and rejected the infamous anti tribal 3 Bills and 2 Resolutions passed by the Manipur Legislative Assembly on  August  31 and consequents events that resulted in killing of 9 innocent civilians including a minor and seriously injuring many more civilians while defending their “inalienable rights.”

“All through our history, Nagas people and its land is inseparable and have been defending our ancestral homeland since time immemorial” it maintained adding, “It is the obligation of the Naga people to protect and safeguard the lands that we have inherited from our forefathers.”

Hundreds and thousands of precious lives had sacrificed and countless worth of properties had been destroyed for the cause, UNC claimed arguing that a time have come for the tribal people to stand unitedly and fight against all forms of “state sponsored terrorism.”

Arguing that “communal” Government of Manipur is determine to take up different forms of “suppressive or oppressive” and “grab our land and to further divide tribal unity” through whimsy instrument like Bills, Acts, Orders, Political and Administrative Decisions, Directives etc, the UNC appealed to Nagas and tribals peoples to remain alert to give “befitting response to its evil designs and policies.”

The UNC have been closely monitoring every steps of the communal Government of Manipur in its attempts to suppress peoples’ democratic movement for its political rights and aspirations, it added.

“In view of the prevailing political situation,” the UNC declared, “immediate attention of the Government of India is drawn for its political intervention to fulfill the political aspiration of the Nagas and tribals.”
