Imphal: Six Naga MLAs in Manipur have
resigned in protest against the state government disallowing
NSCN(IM) General Secretary T Muivah to visit his ancestral
village in the state.
The MLAs, all independents, who were camping in Delhi,
have sent their resignation letters to Speaker Budhi Singh by
fax, assembly sources said today.
The sources said the Speaker had received the
resignation letters, but they have not been accepted so far.

The legislators are Morung Mokunga (Tengnoupal), M
Thohri (Mao), Wungnaoshing Keishing (Phungyar), K Raina
(Tadubi), P Awangbou (Tamei) and Khasing Ruivah (Chingai).

The MLAs said they wanted to resign their membership
because Muivah was not welcome in Manipur by the people of the
state.
