UNC added, Meitei legislators, who have submitted to the hardline Meitei group, Arambai Tenggol on the January 24, at Kangla, cannot claim anymore to be a part of the government of the entire state of Manipur and has limited its powers, functions and relevance to the valley and the Meitei community only.

UNC further stated that Meitei legislators and the Government of India owe it to the people of India to explain what it has been doing for the last 9 months with the situation detoriating from bad to worse, while Nagas becoming victims of its neutrality to the conflict. UNC has also warned of taking up appropriate measures, if their appeals go unheeded.
