SENAPATI, May 5 - The United Naga Council (UNC), during its �presidential council meeting� held in Ukhrul town on Saturday, seriously viewed the manner in which the Assam Rifles operates in Naga areas, UNC said in a press release.
The meeting of the UNC came few days after the Sihai village incident where there was a stand-off between the Assam Rifles and the NSCN-IM.
Saturday�s UNC presidential council meeting �seriously viewed the aggressive nature of the Assam Rifles and its chronic tendency� to harass the Naga villagers in all forms which �prevail till today,� according to the release.
The meeting then strongly condemned the Sihai village incident, while accusing the Assam Rifles of �creating the situation intentionally just to show off their true colours and also to disturb the peaceful environment of the area�, the UNC added. The meeting then resolved that the Naga people will not tolerate �such a diabolic policy any longer�.
The UNC �presidential council meeting� said that the �spirit of the hard earned Indo-Naga peace process must be honoured in letter and spirit�. The meeting also �strongly� urged the negotiating parties to translate the �historic Indo-Naga Framework Agreement into political reality at the earliest�.
