DIMAPUR, FEB 27 (NPN):Slamming the recent statement by the GPRN/NSCN on the proposed Dr Manmohan-Muivah talks by those which it described as “Khehoi campers” (‘so called NSCN united’), the NSCN (I-M) has dismissed it as “unwarranted and misleading.”
The Ministry of Information and Publicity (MIP) of the NSCN (I-M) asserted it was never “discouraged or buffed up” by such statements made by “some disgruntled people” in the name of “Naga freedom fighters” at the behest of their “pay masters, the adversaries of the Naga people.”
The NSCN (I-M) said such write ups only exhibited their “silliness and ignorance” and clearly explained who they were and what their motives were.
In spite of their “misleading and confused write-ups,” the NSCN (I-M) said the Naga people “undoubtedly know who is who and who hold the issue.”
It asserted that the NSCN under the leadership of Isak Chishi Swu, Th. Muivah and Khodao Yanthan was not a confused political organization.
“The NSCN once again reminds them of the fact that the political dialogue between the GoI and the NSCN representing the entire Nagas is going on from 1997 till today as two separate entities,” the statement added.
In this connection, the NSCN (I-M) said it had already conducted four – five Naga consultation meetings. During the consultation meeting held at Hebron in January 2005, NSCN (I-M) said, the Naga people gave “unequivocal mandate” to NSCN leadership to carry on the political dialogue with the government of India more actively to clinch an honorable settlement for all the Nagas and the Nagalim at the earliest.
It said more than 8000 (eight thousand) people representing different sections of Naga people including Naga Hoho, apex tribal Hohos and frontal Naga public forums attended the meet.
It was stated that the NSCN leadership has been negotiating with the government of India with such mandate of the people.
On the ongoing reconciliation and unity process, the NSCN (I-M) said it was a domestic problem and an internal issue of the Nagas, which has been made amply clear. Under no circumstances, the NSCN (I-M) said, the reconciliation and unity process could condition the political dialogue between the government of India and the Nagas led by NSCN.
The NSCN (I-M) said that the mentioning of Th. Muivah’s name several times in the write-ups of “Kehoi campers” clearly showed their “immature political mindset with vested interest, biased and hatred towards a particular leader and tribe.”
The NSCN (I-M) said Muivah was not talking with India for him or for his tribe but has been shouldering the rare noble responsibility on behalf of all the Nagas. “The GoI through its notorious agencies and some Naga idiots who have no future political vision can never undo the working of the NSCN at any cost,” it added.
The NSCN (I-M) said it was firm and determined for the righteous and sacred cause of all the Nagas.
