‘Belittling NSCN-IM is ridiculous’

Dimapur, August 26 (MExN): The NSCN-IM responds, to an article by one UA Shimray titled “…on confession essay,” by stating that the write-up has “own meaning and interest” from the “academic point.” However, in the context of the Naga political movement, the article “feigned blindness” to the reality of the Nagas’ struggle, the NSCN-IM’s MIP stated in a rejoinder. It stated that the NSCN-IM has been guided by the Chinese revolutionary leader’s “theory.” The MIP stated that Shimray’s attempt to belittle the NSCN-IM leadership is “ridiculous in the true sense of the term” and quoting Mao Tse-tung’s teachings “is all the more funny.” When the “Naga group” visited China, they were given the “revolutionary lesson” – “take the masses along with your political struggle.”
The NSCN-IM has all along been guided by Mao Tse Tung’s “revolutionary theory,” the MIP note asserted. Further during the last Indo-Naga political talks in
Delhi, the Indian delegates were told that the Naga people must be consulted and the “NSCN is in no position to take single-handed decision on the Indo-Naga ceasefire extension.” In fact, the consultative meeting at Camp Hebron and the 60th round of talks at Dimapur are all to do with the organization’s “program of making people’s affinity to the Naga political issue more meaningful and people-oriented” the NSCN-IM claimed.
The NSCN-IM further explained that the role of popular masses depend on what political and ideological guidance they have ‘at the moment.’ The MIP asserted that “long time back NSCN was born to bring home to the Naga masses that revolutionary situation is there, to awaken their revolutionary consciousness and arouse the Naga people’s determination.” It maintained that so far the NSCN-IM “has been able to achieve as a capable revolutionary party to rally all progressive Naga people.”
Referring to UA Shimray, the NSCN-IM advised him “not go overboard” to touch ‘some revolutionary theory unnecessarily.” One has to be realistic and not just be academic while making any reference to the Naga political movement, the organization advised.
