Another resolution is to oppose tooth and nail to the construction of the multi-purpose project at Chakpi River in Chandel district. The third resolution is that the 2013 seed sowing festival of the Nagas, the Lui-Ngai-Ni be celebrated in Chandel district and the last resolution has been that all the Nagas should not welcome Manipur chief minister O Ibobi Singh and his 'followers' gracing the Orange Festival, the sources added.

"Personalities who are anti-Nagas should not be entertained in Naga areas and people like Ibobi Singh and his puppets who have been the strong advocate against the Nagas should be opposed by all the Nagas in Naga areas," said the UNC leaders in the consultative meeting today, according to the sources, while adding, "For a long, long time the government have been neglecting the tribal people and the hill districts of Manipur but now the much-talked unity shows by organising functions will not do." The UNC leaders also stated, "It is too late now; the tribal people cannot be appeased now by all these cosmetic shows and stage-dramas." The UNC leaders however said, "We welcome the spirit of festival pertaining to the Orange Festival."

Meanwhile, the UNC presented 'small gifts' to all the Naga tribe presidents of the Chandel district during today's advent Christmas.
