New Delhi, May 06 2010: Various Delhi based social activists have appealed to the Prime Minister to intervene and allow Th Muivah to visit his home.

In its appeal, the activists have sought the attention of the Prime Minister to the fact that the visit was finalised with the Government of India, but the State Government's reaction has created a potentially dangerous situation that negates the spirit of the Naga peace talks.

The sudden deployment and unprovoked destruction of traditional welcome gates have triggered panic and heighten the tension between different communities, said the activists.

It further urged the PM to stand by his recent statement that he hoped to reach an amicable solution to the Naga peace process very soon.

The activists asserted that it is imperative that the PM intervene to defuse the current situation and allow Th.Muivah to visit his home without further delay.

On the other hand, members of the Naga Students' Union, Delhi staged a protest in front of Manipur Bhawan today, demanding that the Resident Commissioner come out and brief them on the situation in Manipur.

At the time of filing this report at 8.30 pm, the RC had not yet briefed the students.

The NSUD is also set to stage a protest rally tomorrow at Delhi to allow Th Muivah to enter Manipur and visit his birth place at Somdal.

The rally is tentatively fixed to begin from 1 pm.

Well known Naga sympathiser Nandita Haksar is also scheduled to hold a news conference tomorrow.
