IMPHAL, August 21: The Autonomous district council, Tamenglong has entreated every individual, organisation and community to exercise maximum restraint towards violence and seek reasonable understanding with one another as the issue of the demand for Sadar hills into full fledged district entails a complex settlement whereby the seriousness of the government has to be questioned.
It reminded the government that as per the memorandum of understanding signed between the government of Manipur with the UNC, ANSAM and other Naga organistions in 1981, 1996 and 1998, the resolutions adopted clearly underlined, the need for forming a cabinet sub-committee which would consult all sections of the people including the representatives of UNC, ANSAM and other Naga Organisations. Henceforth only shall a final decision be taken, it held.
It blamed the government for the impasse for not respecting the succeeding MoUs and that a reasonable conclusion could have been brought about based on the seriousness of the government.
It appealed the government of Manipur to respect the sentiments and right of its people under its own diversity and conclusive dialogues to be initiated, to ensure an early solution.
Further it also appealed the Sadar Hills Districthood demand committee for relaxation of the on-going blockade and to broadmindedly examine the situation in the larger intest of the people of Manipur at large.
