Imphal: In yet another initiative in building a good relationship between the Nagas and Meiteis, civil society leaders from Manipur on Friday called on NSCN-IM army chief Anthony Ningkhan Shimray at its headquarters in Dimapur.
A representative of All Manipur United Clubs’ Organisation (AMUCO) along with Meira Paibis met the Naga army chief at Hebron and discussed various issues faced by the people of the northeast region.
“The meeting is about establishing a closer relationship between the two indigenous people. With AMUCO, which is under the umbrella of Coordinating Committee on Manipur Integrity (COCOMI), came together with Meira Paiphis is not about new development but a renewing of good relationship to convert into practical step as we, the Nagas and Meiteis, journey together for a better future,” Shimray told EastMojo.
Our relationship with COCOMI no doubt is strong enough to sail on stormy weather but with the involvement of Meitei women, a milestone is being laid through their participation, he added.
With COCOMI, a strong relationship is already built and we look forward to work together with them, Shimray added on a positive note.
This is not the first time that valley-based civil society leaders met the NSCN-IM collective leadership. Last year, leaders of civil society organisations met NSCN-IM general secretary Thuingaleng Muivah and discussed various pertaining issues.
