|Rejoinder to NSCN (IM)|
Apropos the article, ‘NSCN (IM) response to the NSCN (K), FGN’ published in some local dailies on July 27′ 2007, the FGN is prompted to state the following for the introspection of NSCN (IM) and discernment of the public.
Firstly, the NNC/FGN is ever committed to uphold and defend the sovereignty of Nagaland. But the NSCN (IM) is only demanding and fighting for a greater Nagalim to have a federal relationship with India.
The NSCN (IM) is the one which deviated from the main course of the Naga national stream. Using the Shillong Accord of 1975 as the main justification they are killing our own people for the past 27 years since 1980. But now what had made them to turn the tables overnight. Let our people think over what they are doing in Phek district by joining forces with the Shillong Accord Transit Peace campers whom they accuse. Let the NSCN (IM) explain to our people what is the difference between the Shillong Accord where the accordists accepted the constitution of India and the NSCN (IM) demand for a greater Nagalim to have a federal relationship with India
Do the Nagas stand for this cause or for sovereignty which our people pledged to uphold in the historic plebiscite of May 16′ 1951.
If the NSCN (IM) is confused. Let them understand that there is only one NNC/FGN. Shillong Accord Transit Peace campers are rehabilitated people by India. Nagas must clearly know the truth and be no longer confused by the utterance pf these people.
Federal Govt. of Nagaland
