Imphal: The United Naga Council (UNC), an apex Naga body in Manipur, expressed dismay over the recent speech of Nagaland Governor and peace talks interlocutor RN Ravi for his speech on the 58th statehood day.

In a statement, the UNC alleged that RN Ravi, whom the Nagas have trusted so much, “has been glorifying the most controversial Naga People’s Convention (NPC) and statehood of Nagaland.”

According to the UNC, RN Ravi must remember that he is a Naga peace talks interlocutor and not just a ‘mere’ Nagaland Governor.

“He must mend his ways and be a benevolent and compassionate Indo-Naga Interlocutor for the interest of both the negotiating parties and for the people in general,” said the UNC.

The UNC said RN Ravi had said “the State of Nagaland along with special provision is unique and special only to Nagaland and remains a matter of envy to other states.”

At a time when the Government of India and Naga negotiators are trying to resolve the Naga political issue, the statement made by Ravi has not gone down well with the Naga people, the UNC added.

According to the UNC statement, RN Ravi said these things ‘as he divides the Nagas further and further.’

The Naga body further said that such ‘utterances have displayed his mischievous intention towards the Nagas and that such an act at this point of time is unfortunate and unbecoming of an Interlocutor.’
