Senapati, May 07 2010: The United Naga Council has today appealed to all organisations concerned to allow 'safe and undisturbed passage' from Imphal to other parts of Manipur.

The UNC statement signed by its general secretary, A.Ashohrii pointed out that a situation has been created by 'the communal Manipur State Government at Mao Gate on May 6, where the life and security of the Naga people is threatened by the very Government that is duty bound to protect its citizens'.

"Taking a cue from the State Govt, the valley based mass organisations has imposed restriction on the mobility of the Naga population in Imphal and have prevented them from travelling to their respective villages" it said.

The UNC then asserted 'in view of this development the UNC is constrained to request to all the concerned valley based organizations to allow safe and undisturb passage from Imphal instead of confining them on the pretext of assuring safety to them'.
