United Naga Council asks Amit Shah to recognise Naga flag and constitution
Civil Society Organisations (CSOs) under the aegis of the United Naga Council (UNC) urged the Government of India to recognise the Naga National Flag and Constitution.
In a memorandum to Union Home Minister Amit Shah, the UNC reaffirmed the declaration of the Naga people's mandate given to the collective leadership of Nationalist Socialist Council of Nagaland (NSCN) on January 21, 2005 to settle the Indo-Naga political issue which should be accepted and honoured based on the unique history and situation of the Nagas.
The United Naga Council (UNC) expressed their appreciation to the Union Home Minister Amit Shah during his visit to Manipur on Sunday for the initiatives taken by his government towards finding a logical conclusion of the Indo-Naga political peace process.
The UNC asserted, “with regard to Naga territory or Naga areas from time immemorial, the Nagas living in the present state of Manipur have lived in our own ancestral domain with well-defined traditional boundaries. We do not share common land, origin or history with any other communities nor have we infringed upon the territories of any other community".
Some of the bodies which submitted the memorandum under the aegis of the UNC included the Khurmi Naga Peoples' Organisation, Chandel district; Naga Peoples' Organisation, Senapati district; Joint Naga Council, Tamenglong district, etc.
