Dimapur August 05: Expressing “shock and regret” over the recent declaration of the NSCN (I-M) banning the Sumi Hoho and Western Sumi Hoho, the Naga Students’ Federation (NSF) has appealed the NSCN (I-M) to re-consider its stance taken against the two Sumi frontal hohos in the larger interest of Naga people.
“While respecting the sentiments of both the NSCN (IM) and the two Sumi Hohos, we sincerely believe that any differences under any circumstances have to be resolved through mutual respect and understanding,” NSF president Imchatoba Imchen in a press release said. Stating that anything that lacked mutual respect would not serve any purpose, NSF added “our society is too small and such actions will only further make us smaller and weaker. We cannot afford to lessen and devastate our already weak and torn apart society any further.”

Dimapur August 04: Political Affairs Committee (PAC) of DAN has appealed to the NSCN (I-M) to lift the ban imposed on the Sumi Hoho and Western Sumi Hoho (WSH) and said differences, if any, should be resolved through dialogue in the spirit of reconciliation and forgiveness.
Chairman, PAC, Dr. TM Lotha in a press release said the PAC was against the banning of any civil society group and social organizations by underground factions in any manner, since the need of the hour for the Nagas was not to distance themselves from one another but for all sections to work towards understanding and oneness.
“Towards this end, the PAC has been working overtime meeting all the underground factions, various civil societies and tribal hohos to bring about reconciliation and unity among the Nagas so as to facilitate the fnal solution to the Naga political issue,” Lotha said. He also said that banning each other would only hamper the goal of reconciliation and unity.
Meanwhile, lauding the initiative of the Forum for Naga Reconciliation (FNR) instituted through the efforts of civil societies and the Church, PAC also congratulated the Forum for the “progress” made in the previous two Chiang Mai meets and wished the Forum all success.
PAC also urged all citizens to extend their fullest support and cooperation to the Forum so that the longing of the Naga people for peace was achieved.
Further, PAC appealed to all underground factions to maintain restraint and to totally stop fratricidal killings, as “fratricidal killings are only creating more hatred and distrust within the Naga family.”
“If the underground groups are sincere in their claim that they represent the aspiration of the people, they should listen to the voice of the Naga people,” PAC said.
