IMPHAL, Aug 29: Zeliangrong Students’ Union, Manipur (ZSUM), in its emergency meeting held at Manipur Press Club, Imphal, has endorsed the decision of United Naga Council (UNC) and All Naga Students’ Assam, Manipur (ANSAM) with regard to creation of Sadar hills district and Jiribam district.

Issuing a statement in this regard, information and publicity secretary of the student body David Kamei categorically stated that Government of Manipur should not go ahead with creation of Sadar hills district until a consensus is arrived among the stakeholders, particularly, the Nagas as per the MoUs signed between the Government and UNC and ANSAM.

ZSUM is not against Sadar hills district provided not an inch of belonging to the Nagas is carved out while creating the proposed district.

In the event of going ahead with the creation of Sadar hills district without any consensus, the Government of Manipur should be held responsible for any eventuality, the student body warned.
