The Zeliangrong United Front (ZUF) today stated that it had joined the Naga National Political Groups (NNPGs) to be a part of the peace process in order to secure a better future for the Zeliangrong people living in Assam, Manipur and Nagaland.

The ZUF, in a release issued by its information and publicity wing, said that it had decided to join the NNPGs, which were holding talks with the Government of India alongside the NSCN (I-M), to resolve the Naga issue.
The release said that as the Centre had taken a decision not to admit any more tribal outfits in the process, the ZUF decided to ally with the NSCN (Unification) for a political solution to the Naga issue on the one hand and the better future of the Zeliangrong people on the other.

It added that after a careful analysis of the pros and cons, the ZUF joined the NNPGs in the peace talks as an integral part of the NSCN (Unification) or the GPRN/NSCN with the assurance that the political aspirations of the Zeliangrong people would be kept alive and pursued through democratic political processes in the post-solution scenario, the release said.

Stating that the Zeliangrong people have been struggling for a single administrative and political system for a common homeland, the ZUF said the Zeliangrong areas were being encroached on, and colonised by non-indigenous Zeliangrong tribes on the pretext of a political conflict with India.

The ZUF said it had realised that if it did not become a party to the peace process, the younger generation of Zeliangrong people would have no future post solution of the Naga issue.
