UNC seeks PM�s intervention to allow Muivah visit

By Newmai News

SENAPATI, May 3 � The United Naga Council (UNC), the apex organisation of the Nagas in Manipur, has sent its missive today to Prime Minister Dr Manmohan Singh in connection with the impasse over NSCN-IM leader Th Muivah�s visit to Manipur.

The UNC in its representation said that it has been awaiting the visit of Muivah, the �peace negotiator� of the Naga people, to his native village Somdal, Ukhrul and Senapati and other places during the scheduled �national peace tour�. The Naga people look forward with great fervour to the opportunity to warmly receive him, the UNC said.

�However, following the quixotic Cabinet decision of the Government of Manipur to ban the entry of Muivah, a war-like situation has been created at Mao/Tadubi/Maram, Somdal, Ukhrul, Senapati, Jessami and several vulnerable places from May 2 with the sudden deployment of thousands of its State armed forces in civilian areas, construction of bunkers, positioning of armoured cars, water cannons, etc.

The insensitivity of dismantling of the traditional welcome gates erected by the Naga villages to welcome Muivah by the State armed forces at Mao Gate is an insult to the Naga tradition and culture and speaks eloquently of the Manipur Government�s disregard for the people they claim to represent.

�We humbly submit the above mentioned facts with the request to kindly intervene in the matter to enable his scheduled visit peacefully and to also reiterate the support and aspiration of the Nagas for peace as a means to bringing a negotiated settlement through the Indo-Naga peace talk,� the UNC missive to the Prime Minister said.
