Imphal, June 11 (NNN): The All Naga Students Association, Manipur (ANSAM) has cautioned all the Naga Ministers, MLAs and MPs in Manipur not to do anything that will damage the Naga interest.

In a statement issued by its president Paul Langhu, the student body stated that Naga politicians irrespective of political party affiliation in Manipur or anywhere else should not do anything that was detrimental towards working out an honourable solution out of the ongoing peace process.

The Naga student body urged the Naga politicians to be judicious and decisive when the situation demands adding �because history will judge us�.

The ANSAM president declared that the student body had made it known and clear that nothing was more precious and dearer than supporting the ongoing dialogue to come to its logical conclusion �because Nagas cannot afford to fail in this given time under the given leadership�.

On the current Ukhrul district impasse between the Assam Rifles and the NSCN-IM, the Naga student body expressed its serious concern.

It blamed some Assam Rifles officers for the current imbroglio in Ukhrul district.

The student body further said that the prevailing situation in some parts of Ukhrul had been precipitated under the influence of �some Indian Army officers�.

Targeting its wrath on some officers of the �Indian Army officers�, the student body alleged that the motive of the army officers had been to sabotage the ongoing peace dialogue between the Government of India and the NSCN-IM.

�We view the unwarranted situation that took place at Marou and Kachai Phungthar villages under Ukhrul district as a mechanism perpetrated by some Indian Army officers to sabotage the hard earned peace through dialogue,� said the ANSAM president in a statement issued to Newmai News Network today.

�It is our strongest appeal to responsible authorities to acknowledge the ground realities of the Naga situation and restraint themselves from doing anything to jeopardise the hard earned peace that is conducive for the ongoing peace dialogue between the GoI and the NSCN at the highest level�, appealed the ANSAM statement.
