Manipur,IMPHAL, August 13: The United Naga Council has today re-imposed a 96 hour total bandh from August 20, which will be followed up with more protest activities to protest against the lack of sincerity and political will on the part of the GoI, said a statement of the Naga body.
It has informed that the United Naga Council had deferred its 96 hours total bandh slated to be observed in the Naga inhabited areas of the state following an assurance of the Ministry of Home Affairs that the matter of the demand for an alternative arrangement is under active consideration.
“However, the assurance of the GoI has not been translated into actions till date and the faith and confidence of the Nagas in Manipur in the democratic process of dialogue has been betrayed.”
“We solicit the cooperation and goodwill of the general public towards making it peaceful and violence free. Violation of the bandh would be considered as an insult to the Naga people and to the issues that we are fighting for and anybody violating the bandh would be doing so at their own risk” the statement ended.
