Published on July 8th, 2013

IMPHAL: The United Naga Council (UNC) has urged the government of India to convene the next round of ‘tripartite talks’ involving the UNC, the government of India and the Manipur government on the UNC’s demand on the ‘Alternative Arrangement’ for the Nagas of Manipur.

In this connection, ‘consultative meeting preparatory’ to the next round which is to be the 6th round of tripartite talk of the Government of india, Government of Manipur and the United Naga Council was held on Saturday at Taphou Naga village, Senapati.

According to the UNC, the consultation was participated by intellectuals and scholars, social leaders, tribe Hohos, regional organizations, women and student leaders, social activists, frontal organisations, MLAs, Naga contractor’s association, former UNC presidents and general Naga public.

It then said the interactive programme focused on two aspects, for which there were two separate sessions. In the first session an analysis of “the tripartite talk process so far” was taken up. In the second session, views and suggestions were generated from amongst the participants on the perspective and the effective approach to the 6th round of talk. The pre and post talk strategies for the people’s movement for alternative arrangement outside the Government of Manipur were also deliberated. Ms. Ningreichon Tungsang and Mr Chingya Luithui moderated the 2 sessions of which Mr Pungdi Celestine and Mr Boveio Pou Duo were the respective rapporteurs. The panelists of the consultation were Dr Benjamin Gangmei, Mr Modoli Puni, Dr Gina Sangkham, Mr Sword Vashum and Mr G. Gaingam, the UNC stated.

At the conclusion of the programme, the participants resolved to urge the Government of India to convene the next round of talk at an early date as agreed upon in the 5th round held on the February 12, 2013.

The meeting also registered serious concern over the delay of the settlement of the Indo-Nagas issue and strongly urged the Government of India to expedite the peace process to its logical conclusion, the Naga body added.
