(Some of the opinions shared by some Naga facebookers from 10th -20th May 2012)
Contd. from Part I
#Of course my statement “Ao,Sumi,Poumai,etc are not with the naga issue” might not be legitimate and informative…If my information is not reliable kindly ignore it…But the question is “Do we have unity among ourselves???”…Let us not be too emotional and one sided..We(Nagas) have the tendency to dig out the dead issues,dead histories and mistakes of some one..We should learn how to forgive and forget,also to be slightly diplomatic so as to bring unity among ourselves..Govt of India will not take our issue seriously until and unless we build unity among ourselves ….
# We are not united, Yes!! we will overcome it.. and what did Reshieng kishing do to mend it as a leader?????? He poured fuel on the fire. Considered ‘Lion of manipuri naga’s’ i was told by a tangkhul friend in NSCN IM.. bahhhhh!!! he is not a lion, he is a scavenger an opportunist, a hyena!!
# Oops…thought I posted this in the morning. Can’t see it so here it is again….
whoever said that Mr. Kieshing ‘should be hanged’ may like to withdraw his statement. That is extreme. Which competent authority of the naga society have judged him and found him guilty. Nagas are a pro-life community and a violent attitude and statement like this will ruin our today and tomorrow. When discussions go sour like this, people say things that has double meanings. So please read points in full context and not pick a line to attack each other.
And what more are we expecting from a gentleman who is in 90s, who shone during his time, went high to become CM in a state where nagas are minority compared to mieties, proving that nagas can take the top job in the state of manipur. Its now time for all the young men and women here to take up the challenge, and stop bitching a gentleman of 93.
# While we are basking the glory of few individuals excelling in the Indian states, the rights of the Nagas have been compromised by this people in their attempt to gain power and fame. As a result the common men continue to suffer under the arms of the imperialists. Rishang life was attempted by Naga nationalists, but the bullet missed by an inch. How I wished he was battered to death in those days. Our history could have been different. There is no age bar for the traitors. Rishang will be remembered as a traitor all through the history of the Nagas, like Jamir is recorded as traitor on every ears of the Nagas. Had they work sincerely for the cause of the Nagas, India would never say that it is only the underground fighting for the rights of the Nagas, but India would acknowledge that Naga politician in Indian states are equally desiring to achieve the goal of the Nagas. All that sincere heart beating for the Nagas can wish now for this gentleman of yours is to lie low for himself if he doesn’t want to be insulted at his old age.
#R@ you are giving very sensible comments but he is a politician by choice. And we have everyright to judge him!! We still judge even our lord Jesus Christ and a person like Mahatma Gandhi and you want people to zip their mouth on a controversial character like this fellow????!!!!! Come on miss :-).
# Rishang Keishing belongs to the eastern part of ukhrul, that is known for inaccessible road condition to the far flung villages, highest illiteracy region in Manipur, most backward in the region. The villagers from Roni-Ronshak, Jamu-Khayang continue to walk 3-4 days to come to nearest town. Kumram-Nongman villages continue to face famine unabated even after Rishang serves chief ministership for the longest term in Manipur. These are the only sorry tales of his constituency, then think about other region. Rishang has been the worst chief minister in all over India.
# While the rest of the Nagas fell in line to fight together with UNC for the common cause of the Nagas, Rishang Keishing was the first to abrogate the unanimity in the 2007 Manipur election, simply for the sheer interest to elect his son (whose name I forgot). After him, many other Nagas followed his suit. So, Rishang was the worst example of Naga unity, thus, his life stand today as the epitome of betrayal. Statue and portray of people like Rishang should be used as an epitome of betrayal. He is the Judas of Naga cause.
# rishang did shine? Lol…. May b da light cun reach da nagas. He was da light of da meiteis. They used him 4 many yrs…….. Nw he is 93 n is useless even 4 da meiteis…. They send him to delhi………. This proved that he existed just s a device………. he became da first slave in manipur, sold his moral rights n sold his family to da indians.. His life has no positive relation with da naga issue..he chose to ignor da rights of da nagas…….he is one of da greatest indian servnt. India shud lov him to death….. lol… liv long awo rishang.
# whatever he(Shri. Rishang) maybe-good, bad..God allowed him to be chief minister, accupying the highest seat for many years, there must be a reason/s for that. The sweet,sour and bitter phase taught us many things-so God must be allowing us to go through all kinds of experiences.who are we mortal human to talk about death of a person old enough to be our father or grandfather. I can,t belief we are so full of hatred!.
# I agree, nicely said.
# god gave him da power n he used it against da wish of his ow pple…….bt da nagas 4giv him. Where do find hatred mis or mr gangmei?
# Do you think Rishang alone is the cause of disunity among the Nagas? to blame on one person alone is too lame…can you turn the table of bygone by talking shit about him? instaed learn to appreciate the gud of others however little it maybe, and discard/ignore the negative qualities.
# First Mr. F@, you may say “rest of the nagas fall in line” but I just proved you wrong by declaring here that I am NOT with you. So you keep your attitude, I will keep mine. Best thing. Mr. Rutsa, I don’t know you but I must confess I have become a fan of yours ☺, just reading your posts and seeing you using a platform like social networking site fb to translate ideas to action (TNB), while the rest just bark, bark. I usually agree with your viewpoint but some difference of opinion here (I think that’s quite ok). Until we become a free nation, like it or not, we have to operate within India. Some join Indian politics, some join IAS, or Indian Army and serve the Indian government and safeguard Indian borders. I will judge a Naga Army Officer in the Indian Army for his role in the Army and not accuse of him not fighting for the Nagas freedom. Similarly for all other profession. Let’s face the truth, we are not at the juncture yet where all of us should give up our role in the Indian system and all of us become Naga Nationalist. People chose their career path, and I wish everyone to excel in the chosen path. The role of our Nationalist leaders is to fight for our freedom. Their heart and soul should be dedicated to the cause. And for the people who chose to work in the Indian political system, their role should be to bring growth and development in our land, to fight for a bigger pie for us from the government budget (until we reach that juncture). They also play important role until then, otherwise our interest will be unrepresented. Someone else will enjoy on our behalf. So please rate a doctor as a doctor, a teacher as a teacher.
#.. i agree with you but i still don’t like him! :-) No offense taken from you nor any given. I like all the points you made in your comments. And i think if i spend too much time with you, i might get convinced to change my opinion of him hahahahaha.. I am someone who’s opinion can be changed if the right person makes me see otherwise and you are one of those people. :-).
# all those talking nonesense on rishang keishing big time looser(waste scholars)…alrite! this old man has done what suppose to be done as a chief minister of manipur for past 25 yrs and serve as MP more thn decade…it doesnt suprise me all this criticism,he has proved his capablelity and i dont expect him to do much at age 100+ yrs…he may b corrupted,selfish,greedy etc etc that God will judge…
# Haha…good one Peter. Please continue to dislike him. Its good to be firm sometimes. Never let someone change ur mind unless there is a solid reason that you can see right through. :-)
# And here comes our Smiley Chong all guns blazing!! If history is to be repeated one or two of his shots will misfire or fire back on him face. hahaha..
# Pt … that is wat i was trying to say…. u put the right word….
# your forum TNB chased me out for no reason..very bad! you turn out to be ugly bitchs hahahahaha wise doesnt judge in that manner though i may b not scholar likd u but i think i can deliever better fair judgement than you between good and bad….thats mean “you are waste”lol
# Hey, C@ i have absolutely no idea about that!! Promise..
# i know @ it was not you…although im happy you were around here…now we can fight till midnite ,just kidding!
# gangmei,4 ur kind in4maton….. No 1 said he was da causes of all naga problems bt he played one of da biggest role in confusin da nagas..i may talk shits abt him bt thats non of ur business….. Nway, keep appreciatin da pple who sold ur ryghts. You may get da chance to eat rishang’s shit….
# We are the future.Let us make our land our’HOME’.Let us forget our foolishness.let us eradicate the feelings of selfishness n etc..let us make our mind as broad as the ‘mighty earth’.let us not differentiate ourself that he/she is etc..etc.we are of same blood..
# why do u allow yourself to be confused?…ur confuse no doubt…haha
# g@,i wud not act n write like u if i was confused…. … U don seem to nderstand even ur pple n tgeir leaders. Don get mad m jus tellin u da truth. nway, i like ur jokez…. Lol
# n plzzz remember wat we were talkin abt. Dis is not abt u n me…. Hehe..
# Let the traitors be excellent traitors like Rishang and Jamir, where the rights of the Nagas are pushed to the extremity of slavedom. LOL
# However, I quite like the attitude of Ruth, let the national workers be truthful to their works and assasinate all those traitors at once..lol
# However, Ruth failed to follow the argument cos she has no reason or evidence to proof that Rishang was not a traitor, neither she has any justification to say that Rishang’s life was not attempted by the national forces three times for his betrayals.
# I’ve been always suspicious about you cos I know where you are from and how closely related you are to Rishang. Cos a man will not go against who feed him. Though you may talk blah…blah…blah…aboutNaga nationalism, I will still doubt because you still value Rishang more than the rights for the Nagas. I’ve read many of your posts with double tongue sometimes supporting the Naga cause and sometimes your personal interests towering higher than Nagas’ cause. Unlike you, I steadfastly standstill for the rights of the Nagas, what ever come may. If you are not with my cause than you are obviously my enemy is my principle. Unfortunately, Rishang was not with my cause and he betrayed my cause so, I consider him as enemy. And you are becoming part of the enemy…which is bad for you boy.
# I think someone here needs to go on a good Vacation and come back REFRESHED.
# It is interesting to read some of the views, forcing others to like RishangKeishing.
Please tell me something what he has done for the Nagas and let me also respect him not as selfish political leader. If you have taken something for your stomach from, Jamir
Keishing It is good for you but you should not go against the aspiration of the Nagas.
Why not talking about other people in different organizations? We the Nagas have political problem and people may talk aspects when we solved our political problem. How many of you are like great followers of RSS principles and ideology? Let me repeat here, Rishang Keishing is like Rakhi Sawant, popular in different ways. His political motives is like RSS.
All the best guys but please don’t FORCE OTHERS TO Like HIM IF THERE IS NOT ANY REASON. May 17 at 8:11am via mobile
# correction: *please tell me *other aspects, Delete ‘like’ and read as ‘you are great followers of’
# Whatever Rishang Keishing is, he sure is famous!!! His photo has been on ‘top of the charts’ for the past 3 days :-).
# Keishing is very popular as I have said above. Lol
# uncle Rishang may have fail to fulfill Nagas aspiration but nevertheless he is still heros to many other tribes. All the tribal living in Langol camp village and nos of Communities church build their were through him, if not tribal people will be still tenant of Meiteis Landlord, watever he may b n whoever he may b i reli HATE him
# There is no reason to like Rishang or Jamir if we have to look at them through the prism of Naga National cause. There may be certain individuals or families who might have earned livings through them like Theophilus cited about Langol Housing Complex. However since the greater cause of the Nagas have been foiled at many instances by these Indian Politicians they deserve public condemnation. Thus, to avoid such mistake again in the future. Rishang undoubtedly is a pain in the neck for the Naga national cause. I second THOHE POU’s statement.
# i dont appreciated when you sd” a man will not go against who feed him” i earnd my bread and butter myself neither my family were feed by rishang….. Mayungchang if rishang keishing was awared from Nagas for being sincerity toward nagas struggles thn i would definetely go against but here senario is different he was awarded from goi for serving lokshaba more thn 6 decades and there you pples crying….please have a thought sometime….im talking his career achievment and their you guys accussing on his achievment.
# I have not read anyone accusing him. Not one is against his mischievous achievement. Today some people are working in the name of NE people and earning much like he works against in the name of Nagas and earned very high status in his working field. If we the Nagas are going to work like Rishang Keishing, we will never achieved what we are aspiring for. Therefore better we give up before we lost out of shame. Let us try to respect each other’s likeness and dislikeness. Let us not force anyone to like his achievements. Instead of forcing others to appreciate his mischievous achievements, let us give thanks to God for giving him a LONG LIFE.
# Interesting to read…. hatred and appreciation comments; instead of pouring out our hatred, like or dislike, blaming and cursing this Guy, Shall we think something Positive, that can bring peace and solution of the Naga’s. by reading all the above comments we should be able to raise a voice to the leader who are able and can do something for Naga’s why should we simply bark around who can do nothing…..
# U R Right………….Rishang Keishing = CK@ lol he has done all this because he wanted to knew something about Rishang Keishing (Rishang Keishing may be CK@’s father/grandfather/relative).
#JR@ i dont understnd wat you trying to convey here…and now related me as grandson,daughthers tats annoying
# to conclude, let me sumup in this way, Rishang is a traitor being cast out by his own people, as simple as that. everyone knows why…….
# lol.”In every action there is a reflection” Do not mention so and so for so and so. still i didnt get you>>lol…
# Founder of “Modern Manipur”
# What about Victor Keishing…
# He is a Newbie and we are yet to see his true color. If he follows his father’s footstep in regards to Naga Issue no Naga will support him except few people from his family and constituency and not beyond that…
# whether we like him or not,he is not going to be honoured by us but by the GOI,n whether india really would like to honour him or not it is natural for them to honour him becoz he is one of the most successful indian politician ever .his indian political achievement needs laurels indeed.
# He is really very popular among the Naga facebookers. His picture is coming up again and again in this group. Lol
# indeed … he was Gr8 man to be a politician..but zero benefit for his tribes man or the Nation(Nagalim) he live within with his breath
# If he was the CM of Nagaland he might have die long ago……..but i m confuse,,,,
yaaa he is a great men of himself and of his supporter and of his support people, that people need to respect him, and BTW i don’t see anyone respect Naga’s by people because of him, i guess no body know he is a naga outside Nagas territory or outside manipur state, even many manipuris considered thts his ancestor were manipuri,,,,,, ET@ if you do’nt know wts i mean go and research some CM of Nagaland like S.C Jamir Biography them come back to me,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,okayyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy not to every successful politicians in Nagaland i m talking abt ET@ a request to you pls do’nt try to know too muc or nothing, this is very dangerous,,,,,,oooooooookkkkkkkkkyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy haha Mr ET@ if you have a guts of men go and speard this kind of words that you know to evryone,,,,,,,,,or else i recommend you to go out n sit outside take off your shock and smell for sometime you ll get fresh…………….lol
# I dont know much about him. But if anyone is selling the sweat of nagas, that is not good. They are called thieves and very selfish. And the supporter are even selfish. Some of the supporter even talks about the award by GOI. But this awards are the sweat of the nagas.
# I like Rishang Keishing and people who didnt like him can do nothing likewise i cannot change ur perception about him but Rishang has done wonders that has become a history.
# I like rishang keishing………n thank you bikramjit fr the post
# With the present trends of our comments Nagas will go long way to free from their greed and selfishness. Many of our people love more greed than sacrificial life for Naga cause. We can see many promising Naga leaders like Rishang Keishing coming up soon. Let us hope to see many Rishangs within 5-10yrs.
# Jamir excels in Nagaland, Rishang have been excellent in Manipur, Rajkumar did well in Arunachal, and the supporters of these leaders dislike Naga cause and we Nagas continue to suffer. Lol
# I had the previledge of meeting this icon a decade ago through a mutual friend and I’ve not stop admiring him since not only for sheer political acumen but more for the ‘person’ he is. May Nagalim produce more men like him. *for his sheer…
# His life was attempted three times by the Naga nationalists. Any reason for such disgrace for your good man?
# Mostly because of difference in political idealogies and clash in philosophies on the national movement I would say.
# oh yess he is a great men need to be respected, being a CM of manipur and menbers of Rajya sabha, but what actually do his photo necessary to post here, is he a menbers of this blog???????… if not there are thousand of other Indian like him, and if we keep posting all those photos here i think this blog will be more or less like a Indian photo blog,,,,,,, Anwy he is nt related to Nagas in general although he is a great men,,,,,,,, From the core of my kidney i request the concern Adm to remove this old men photo from here……………….. ET@ although he maybe a Nagas wts make us to admire him, haaaaaaaa!!!!!!!!,, his work is basically about Indian politic and if we are to go there are more than many who work for Indian politic, Also ET@ when have you come across that people respect Nagas because of him,,,,,,,, you can praise his name as muc as you want i do’nt mind, but mind this when people said we are respected because of him,,,,,Understand@@@@@@@,,,
@well sd…[[;pple respect Nagas bcos of Rishang Keishing..wat a joke E T@..dont you have anything to sd thn talk nonsense.
#every1………… whoeva says so….let him also be in his shoe……… n they will understand….. there is no such leaders who can command every1…….not even abraham lincoln…so….u can expect critics….. but it doesn’t mean…. we hate them…
# can someone tell me wat he has done for naga? he is the longest served cm of manipur.
# MR Rishang keishing was a strong advocate of Nagas independence before he was a CM of manipur, an aftr he retire from CMship of manipur & before he was a menbers of Indian parliament he again started to support for Nagas cause….. when he find his chair he criticize of those people who fight for the nagas people………………..this is really grts yaarrrrr is like a dog eat his omit,,,,,,,,,,,,Mr ET@ what is the things which Gaikhangan speak the truths for the Nagas pls share yaaaarrrrrrrrrrr………………
# Never in the history there will be no one like Rishang Keishing. He himself is the Hero. Do You think at the given precarious situation of politics in Manipur a Naga will get a chance to become CM again? I doubt. Nagas politics is wrong Rishang’s movement curbed by NSCN was wrong.
# Not one can deny that Rishang Keishing is not a veteran politician. He is one of the greatest politicians of this century BUT NOT FOR THE NAGAS. WE NEED Naga politician who will work to solve the Naga political problem. Let us pray that we may have a great politician like some of the present politicians who will work for the Nagas cause unlike Rishang. Let us continue to respect him as a great Manipur tribal politician BUT NOT FOR THE NAGA CAUSE.
# KTP@…Can you please share with me the source where Ao,Sumi,poumai etc.,are not in the Naga issue…i m curious to know. do you have any source that support your statement. thank you.
# rishang keishing is no doubt the greatest and veterant politician of manipur. no one can question this, however when comes to naga issue, he and gaikhangam seems the two sides of same coin. personal gain politician. just my point of view. no offence.
# There cannot be any cheaper person than the one who uses public platform for personal gains.
# an opportunist is never a good politician n i want to say fuck off to all the opportunist..
# if i were CM of manipur for 6months i can change the table . why rishang didnt do anything? muivah was never Cm of any state.
# We should be proud that Shri Rishang Keishing, One of the Living Legend of Indian Parliamentary Politics is a NAGA….a great parliamentarian, Let us wish him good luck and long life instead…. Hon’ble Sir May you live long and healthy .
# mine urself,claim urself but praise them,what they hav done weter it’s gud or bad.If u wana blame u stand in their porition b4 u proceed..!.a Qot of a famos writer
# Can someone elaborate why Rishang Keishing goes against the Naga cause if you think he has gone wrong?
