IMPHAL Sept 10: The Zeliangrong Union (Assam, Manipur and Nagaland)has appealed to the public not to create rumors which may affect the communal harmony in the state.
A release of the union stated that that an unfortunate incident took place on September 10 at Moidangpok along the NH 53 stretch. An Alto car (MNO IW-4837) and another van MNOIW-5569 was vandalized whereas the passengers inside were also verbally abused and assaulted. This is an unfortunate incident and the ZU condemns it.
The conflict was due to a rumor and the ZU had also confirmed it as false.
The economic blockade is imposed by the Kukis for their Sadar Hills demand, whereas the stance of the Nagas by imposing the counter blockade is that areas of Ukhrul,Tamenglong and Senapati belonging to Nagas have been included in the Sadar Hills.The Nagas are only opposing what is wrong and the counter blockade would be automatically removed after the Kukis have revoked their stance also,the statement by ZU general secretary K Poushinglung said.
