IMPHAL, April 6: The Zeliangrong Baudi, Manipur clarified in order to clear confusion created by the news report which carried on different newspapers appeared on April 2 and 3, based on the statement issued by Dr Gairiangmei Maringmei, General Secretary, Zeliangrong Baudi (Assam, Manipur & Nagaland), said a press release issued by joint secretary, Zeliangrong Baudi Manipur.
It further said that the Zeliangrong Baudi, Manipur is one of the constituent units of United Naga Council as such the Zeliangrong Baudi Manipur endorsing the decision of the United Naga Council on the Naga issue does not commit any procedural lapse in the process. The Zeliangrong Baudi Manipur has jurisdictional autonomy for making decision in the State of Manipur as per the Constitution of the Zeliangrong Baudi, it said.
It was very unfortunate that the General Secretary of ZB (AMN) issuing such statement without any resolution or decision adopted or taken in any ZB meeting is a clear case of misuse of office apart from violation of procedural and established tradition of any social organisation, it said.
Therefore, it is hereby informed to all the general public of Zeliangrong in particular and Nagas in general not to be misled by the statement of the aforementioned rather Zeliangrong people are part and parcel of the Naga family as such it is the bounden duty to adhere to UNC decision, it concluded.
