Christians are the next target in India

👍The BJP government has cunningly and cleverly included Christians in their CAA to avoid criticism on racism and biasm based on religion and minorities aspects. Do you think the Christians are free from their target, welcome and embrace by the majority Hindus in India? A million dollars question.

👍The BJP Government has preplanned and well drafted CAB, and they want to target the Christians, Muslims and other minorities one by one. However, sadly our Christian leaders from NE especially from Nagaland and Manipur have supported the CAA.

👍 Just watch and see. The days are coming soon and the Christians shall surely reap what they have done for the BJP to pass the bill in the parliament.

👍It may be sensitive and senseless for some people. But the realities will come soon.

DIMAPUR, FEB 27 (NPN) | Publish Date: 2/27/2020 11:46:07 AM IST

Against the backdrop of both the Centre and the Working Committee of NNPGs moving towards the goal of finalizing the final agreement for solution to the Naga political issue, the NSCN (I-M) has reaffirmed the decision of its Tatar Hoho on September 3,2019 and the collective leadership on July 23,2019 “to uphold the 3rd August Framework Agreement.

NSCN (I-M) MIP said the resolution was arrived after an intense deliberation on the “Indo-Naga political talks” at the February 27 emergency joint council meeting comprising of the collective leadership, members of the collective leadership, steering committee executive members, steering committee members, kilonsers, tatars, head of departments and colonel and above of the Naga Army held at the Council Hqs, Hebron.

The meeting also resolved that the Naga national flag and constitution represent Naga national identity and their recognition was “absolutely a matter of Nagas’ rights for an honourable political solution.”

It was also resolved that “the political solution shall be ‘Naga Solution’ of the Nagas, wherever they are” and therefore, NSCN (I-M) said it was a bounden duty to uphold the unique history and sovereign rights of Nagas that was “in consonance with the historic 1951 Plebiscite.” Further, the meeting resolved to uphold the “mandate of the Naga people given to NSCN on 21st January, 2005, to conclude an honourable solution to the Indo-Naga political issue and the unification of all Naga areas.”

It was resolved that political talks between government of India and NSCN (I-M) “must move forward in the spirit of mutual respect”. It also “condemned in the strongest term, the double-standard policy of GoI” and warned the latter against using its agencies, including the NIA to arrest and harass NSCN (I-M) members “who are in political negotiations with the GoI for the past 22 years.” The meeting also resolved that NSCN “shall continue to endeavour to conclude an honourable political solution that is acceptable to Naga people.”

Amidst speculations of a stalemate between the government of India and NSCN (I-M) for inking the final agreement, convenor of Working Committee (WC) of NNPGs N. Kitovi Zhimomi, made it clear that “Nagas of Nagaland should not be sandwiched between government of India and NSCN (I-M)”.

Kitovi said this to Nagaland Post over telephone, ahead of the meeting with Nagaland Governor and Interlocutor for Naga Peace Talks, RN Ravi on February 24 (Monday) in Delhi. The 18-member WC delegation led by Kitovi will finalize the negotiated points (after signing of the ‘Agreed position’ on November 17, 2017), NNPGs media cell stated.

Commenting on the impediment against signing of the final agreement despite conclusion of “negotiations over contentious issues” on October 31, 2019, Kitovi said, “Some groups are purposely prolonging the signing of the final agreement. They only know why they are prolonging the solution.”

He said it was apparent that it would not be possible to “bring all the groups together to unanimously sign the final agreement, when some groups are deliberately prolonging it”.

Referring to the resolutions made by tribal bodies, civil society organisations, GBs and Nagas in general for early settlement of the Naga political issue, Kitovi asked, “Why solution must be delayed for some groups with vested interest?”

Kitovi made it clear that Nagas of Nagaland should not be “sandwiched” between government of India and NSCN (I-M) and that their rights “should not be crushed”. On the prolonged negotiations between NSCN (I-M) with government of India, Kitovi said, “The outcome of 22 years of negotiations of NSCN (I-M) is nothing but PAN Naga Hoho, which also lacks clarity”. Kitovi also said that the proposed PAN Naga Hoho (a social-cultural body of all Nagas) had confused the Naga people for a while. However, he said the people of Nagaland have now “out-rightly rejected PAN Naga Hoho without integration”.

Maintaining that there was no reason to prolong signing of the final agreement, the WC convenor said WC has come to an understanding that “whatever is not possible today would be pursued though a democratic process after signing of the final agreement”.

Kitovi rubbished speculations that NNPGs are negotiating only for Nagas of Nagaland. He reiterated that special status like separate Regional Territorial Council has been worked out for Nagas living outside Nagaland. Asked about Monday’s meeting with Ravi, Kitovi reiterated “There is no agenda; nothing to discuss. We will only talk about the final agreement signing ceremony”.
