Imphal, July 27 2010: Serving an ultimatum to the Government of India to intervene within five days on its demands, United Naga Council (UNC) has threatened to resume its temporarily suspended agitation in the event of failing to act on its demands.

The demands of UNC are institution of a judicial inquiry into the May 6, 2010 incident at Mao Gate in which two students were shot dead and more than a hundred peaceful protestors were wounded by police action, immediate withdrawal of restrictions under 144 CrPC and demilitarisation of Naga areas, removal of 'wanted' tag and fixing rewards on Naga leaders and dissolution of the 'undemocratically instituted' Autonomous district councils.

Submitting an ultimatum to the Prime Minister in this regard, UNC categorically stated that in the event of failure to meet the demands within the set deadline, it would have no other option but to resume the temporarily suspended agitation till the aspiration of the Naga people is fulfilled.

The ultimatum signed by its president Samson Remei further warned that 'this step is the expression of our democratic rights and will be intensified in different forms and at different level till the issues are addressed in the right perspective.

UNC, however, reiterated its strong commitment and support to the Indo-Naga peace process.


the restrictions imposed under section 144 of the CrPC has been withdrawn from the hill areas by the State Govt a long time back, while a Magisterial Inquiry has been instituted to probe the May 6 incident at Mao gate, in which two students were killed.
