Is Rishang Keishing one of the icons of the Naga Youth? Part II

(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 ….

Rishang Keishing

# 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.
Good day!

# 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

# 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

# Being an Indian he had but being a naga he did no wonders i guess@na

# 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?


Is Rishang Keishing one of the icons of the Naga Youth? Part I

(Some of the opinions shared by some Naga facebookers from 10th -20th May 2012)


“Rishang Keishing became one of the first Lok Sabha members in the year 1952. As a veteran Naga politician, what do people expect from him? Today, social networking is becoming a great platform where the people freely express their views from their heart without fear. Keishing has really worked hard to earn the present status in Indian Parliament and many people respected him. However, the many Naga people and national workers are not proud of him” 

Rishang Keishing

# What some of the Naga Facebookers said about him on his 60th Anniversary as a first Lok Sabha member? We have people who appreciate and proud of his great success as the first Lok Sabha member and we have also the people who appreciate and respect him as veteran politician but not for the Naga cause. Some of comments about him are given below but their names are removed to avoid their identity.

# Congratulation. I hope as a Naga, you will also find an important place within naga society. I think that would make someone more complete.

#All the Indians should be proud of!

#Congrates..60years is not a joke Mr.Keishing….Whats on your mind

# I would have been proud if he had spend all these years in the Parliament fighting for a just solution of Nagas Struggle…

# I can digest it when he is praised by his ‘adopted family’ members ;-).


# He and the other fellow from Nagaland who refuses to die are the enemy from within..

# atleast…..our names are known through HIM…..atleast in some mainland circles…….”something is better thn nothing”

# Btw what did he do????

# I think Ak is asking, What!!! besides selling the future of his grand parents, his father, mother, brother, sister, cousin, nephew, neice, grand children etc etc What else did R Keishing do for the Nagas?? I guess being the longest parliamentarian is no BIG deal.. Infact any NAGA who is ready to sell himself and his people can beat the record!!! provided he/she needs to live for 60 to 70 years maximum. And avoid assasinations!! :-)))  and stay in imphal valley most of the time!! hahahaha..

# Ha3… He looks more like a meetei too.

# Some of the guys here seriously need a Reality check

# nah nah nah……….if the nagas themselves doesn’t know abt thmselves how can we expect others????? thats the sad thing wether good or bad

# Pt@,,, y dnt you do something for GoI so that you wud also be honoured at the highest in the GoI’s throne..? You are such a prominent person among the loggers in Nagas histor lol

if ny1 prominent who wud like to be eminent in the Indian constitution should just have to do, write or say a statement that de-legitimate the Naga cause and join their head with the GoI’s deplomates to hach out strategies, policies and plans how to tackle with the Insurgencies of NE.. That way he or she would be shortlisted for such an honorary n recognition. Jai-hind! May 13 at 6:24pm via mobile ·

# A proud moment indeed for the Entire NE India

# John… what the hell!

# See the smirk on his face… inwardly laughing at us… “i gotcha ol by the balls” ha3

#Jo, i don’t dislike you for joining the indian army but i am not going to shed a tear when you are killed by your own fellow army friends while watching Criket or kabaddi on TV!! :-))) or they smash your guitar on your empty head!!! lolas…

# I guess he is a statesman on par with Muivah and enjoys enormous support within the Masses though not through intimidation and guns.

# poor joke…

# Pt@ Lol This is India and the Right people are fighting for the case.. I’m no less Indian than the Mayangs

# atleast he dont extort, kidnap, bully like the NSCN do :P

# If i am not mistaken this also happened when Jamirs picture was posted at Nagablog.. :-)))

# Lol… @pt…. he still doesn’t get it :)

# Guess there are an equal no. of supporters n opponents..But hell yeah, he is an inspiration to me and anyone against him is gonna face my music. Lol Right on the bulls eye,

# ‎DK@ “Heads off” to R Keishing once more. I like your slogan  ahahahhaha

# okay okay.. you guys win!! Lets build a statue of him at parliament or ukhrul. Find a spot D and J. :-)

# Without a head… As d@ would like it that way :)

# why in Ukhrul only.. His statues deserve to be in each n every corner of India.

#  hahaha…typo mistake. hats off thats wat i meant.

# no probs bro… You killed him. Too late. how can he survive without a head?

# Deal????? D and J.. If he is as popular as you guys say he is amongst Nagas and made sacrifices for us, I guess india and TNL will not object to his statue being erected at this places..

# P and D says it a “Typo mistake” hahaha

# but you seems to be a hardcore fan of nscn. :P

# Extra-ordinary achievement as a person and individual, he is all of 93 years old today,heard that he started his political sojourn as an MP at age 26 years, But his phenomenal political innings have not helped his district not even his own constituency benefited from his stints, very sad, and tragic for the national movements…..

# Peace out brothers.. Its nothing but jst a li’l bit of difference in opinion..

But he sure has made us proud..God bless him with health.

# When someone like me from Nagaland who has never been directly affected by the policies of R Keishieng cannot digest his deeds towards the Nagas of Southern Nagaland and his own tribe!!!! Am quite amazed that those who were effected and suffered for his political crimes can SALUTE HIM!!!

# lets discuss this at munirka. Lolz. I am heading towards munirka in a few mins. :P

# and D@ i know you didn’t meant me but just because a person is pro naga does not mean he is pro NSCN or NSCN IM..There is more to NAGA than NNC’s and NSCN’s.. Nor does it mean that just because am against india and her policies does not mean i am going to join the pro active NSCN’s..

# P@, you perfectly echos my sentiments buddy…………

#‎DK, I don’t a support a particular group. But when it comes to fight for our rights or in protecting our identity, i would give it all. Muivah and Isaak may not be good leaders but then we are not fighting for them,we are doing it for Nagalim.

# this man has not done anything for the Nagas. nothing to be proud of. all these years, he has been serving the interest of Indian state, that has given license to its army to rape and killed innocent people in Northeast India.

#dude i wat i mean s ….did u notice anythng he did fr da naga????to be spoecific sustainable…..???????

# Facial looks and deeds doesn’t match.

# He will be highly respected for what he has done against. All the best keishing.

# One of the most outstanding gentlemen coming from the naga tribe, successful both personally and professional, I congratulate and respect him on this day.

And for all those men who cannot reach his level of success, its okay if you abuse him from the back, it won’t matter to him at all, he won’t even know what all of us are writing here, coz he is above all this.

# R@io It matters.I have no doubt that some members of this group are well educated and highly placed in their respective societies.And that they can play an important role in bringing change and educating people that we should not breed this sort of powerful yet very harmful politician(s).Lastly i think you do not know the importance of social network. Some big and important revolutions are happening in India and abroad because of this.

# And why are you in this group at all if you think what we are discussing here won’t bring any change?

# He will never know that we don’t like him but neither will he that you are praising him as well

# I appreciate your knowledge on the “importance of social network”. :-))). In a social network, you can expect to meet people of different opinion, like in this case. So the best thing is you keep your opinion, and I will keep mine. Okay? If I respect someone for the good I see in them, I am not afraid but rather proud to express that. Yes P@, a part of him. Not the killer part, but the ability to plan and execute, thinking out of the box. If those talents were utilised for a different purpose, it would have been heroic. So be it Hitler or Osama, even if I can’t appreciate what they have done, I must admit that they had something ‘great’ in them, which was just misused.

# I am going against you because you respect or support.But what people discuss here does matter in a big way.And are you sure that this discussion will not impact him in any way?

# Wow wat a great leader,,, ! 60 years in the parliamnt with no identity!,,, n that too without any portfolio , just a member huh? Great yaar,,,

# R@ that’s exactly it. I didn’t notice anyone here saying they hated R keishieng. But i feel that being PROUD of him or Adolf Hitler or Idi amin is not very educated and learned of a person.

# I will conclude here with what I said about this man that I Respect Him for his Achievements as an Individual and a Professional who Pursued Politics as Career. Am sure he would have been successful in any other profession too if he had opted for alternative profession. Like we respect any other naga fellows who excel in indian government services like the IAS or Indian Army or any other. Having seen him only once or twice, my opinion about him is that he is one of the most polished gentleman, outstanding social mannerisms (they do reflect quality of a person), and a good team player, coz when its congress v/s any party I think he represents his polical party to the core, and when its about tribals and meties on state level politics, I think he is solidly rooting for his people , the nagas. That’s my observation, and therefore I respect him. Wish him many years of good health.

# haha..You’re misled, seriously misled.

# He opposed peace and unification process of Naga communities by leading a delegation to Delhi to block the extension on NSCN(IM) in Manipur.This just one out of tons of reasons that we call him a traitor.Now I have no doubt that you are against the struggle.

# Pro Manipur

# Wish if I were in his place… In his place,, I wud push thousand miles away the Naga political issue to arrive at the Junction of solution so that our Children could become an architecture of the Nation n I the foundation.

# do you respect and like him because of you have the same political agenda or because of you are ignorance about his political agenda? For me he is one of the most selfish politicians.

# I am a corporate executive and not a politician. So I neither have same or different political agenda. I have no political agenda. And if you understand my comments well, note that my ratings for him are not basis of any political agenda. It is on the basis of my judgement of him as an individual as a professional who is successful.

# I do respect your opinion on him. I just want to know only. Have a blessed day ahead.

# We should honour him unconditionally…As a human being he might have not fulfilled the will of the people in every angle..Nevertheless,we cant deny his outstanding success as a parliamentarian..Criticism is a part of the democratic society but at the same time we should also look at the greenery side of someone…

# There is difference between unintentionally and intentionally not

# He looks still strong!

# Our so called freedom fighters attempted his life two three time but God by His saving grace has still keep him alive. Praise the Lord!

# Icon of the Naga Politics .

# Waa… If we look to the the likes of this person as an icon of Naga politics,we have got a bright future.:-))))).

# List atleast one good reason why Nagas should endorse him.

# Well going by his age,he must be a fitness freak:-)))

# hats off to our Proud Leader!!

# Respect him, for his age as a senior citizen of the country but not with his poor quality performace…

# this is great achievement! hats off old man….and you pple who talking ill on his achievement “wats wrong with you guys”? does he harm anyone individually or Nagas over all….

# Great going guys! We must admit that he did well in his career. But how he achieved that stature is a question to some people here. Some people doesnt care which path you take to achieve your goal. Some people cares. If you reached your stature through an acceptable honest means- indicate your professionalism. If however, you are not honest it- indicates unprofessionalism. So to me I congratulate him on his success, but I need to find his relevance on nagas issues. I feel staying relevant to where one came from is important. This is what I feel at this moment. We must repect his age. It a gift of God.

# please stop the boys from fighting with each other. ;)

# Not is fighting here. Albert, I agree with u, regardless of contribution, let us respect him for his old age as a senior citizen.

# now i have seriouse question to those tangkhuls guys who talk nonsense on Rishang Keishing,specialy tangkhul who doesnt realise yet and think Muivah is super hero,Rishang keishing is God fearing man and do concern for Tangkhu,forget your individual benificiary schemes(myself doesnt gain any penny from his rulersip)…..e.g Jasami road which was strongly opposed by meitei community and still this very Mr Keishing open way from ukhrul to Nagaland Bcos this man knowns wat will happen in future for tangkhuls,today 83 days,42 so n so band happen in Manipur but doesnt effect tangkhul community..and biggest Rice godown of manipur center in ukhrul which was against by meitei,kuki communities but Mr keishing builded center and biggest rice goddown in ukhrul,he is from Phungyar constitute….let me be very honest here those Nagas reading my post im Tangkhul by birthday but not from Ukhrul…realy hate to see this small brain so called scholar who doesnt anythiny..

# Lol.Who thinks Muivah is a super hero? Forget about that Jessami and rice stuff.What has he done in his 60 long years of successful political career in the struggle of the Nagas?Struggle for our rights and identity precedes all those negligible development that he brought.And i hope you do not consider him as a superman. :)))))

#TR@..why do you expect contribution and solution of Nagas from Rishang Keishing who was elected as a candidate from India constitutitued,even Muivah n Issach who lead the struggle for past 60yrs doesnt bring any solution yet…..dont expect golden egg from four footed mammal ….Rishang served as longest MP in Lokshaba and indeed deserved award thn why all this critic n irrevelan comment on Award cremony is totaly bullshit …..if i were a CM,MP from india constitute honestly im helpless on Nagas issue bcos i”ll taking odd to serve country not Nagas issue…be logical man! his career on indian parliment why do you expect to fight lik Muivah or other freedom strugglers..

# Longest serving MP Vs development and his contribution for Nagas struggle in last more than 60yrs. The same Naga people having different priorities. Everyone is right in their own personal views but when it comes to common aspiration and dreams, there are lots of differences. Peace to all :)

# it seems tat u know evrting bout Nagas.yes we r ful,we hop tat Rishang wil definitly do smting 4 us.Coz he is ta person to fite on behalf of manipur as wel as 4 ngags…But ….

# I like him because he is Godly man though he is not very supportive to Naga Issue, everyone has there own living agenda and you have all freedom to do what you want, right? so why can’t he??? but we can pray for him that he will support as most of us want him to raise our issue….. God is miracle working God anything can happen.. kuknalim.

# asshole so far wat he did 4 d nagas he is too old i pray let him die soon

# He is humble n God fearing,n thus dis achievment.

# c keishing .fine he is a godly man… if he rely is than he would have known where hs he cum frm n hu is he…!!!!!!!!!!!! n c he hs ta ryt 2 2 wat he want…….bt jst imazin he hs serve ol his lyf as an mp……n dsnt raise our political issue instead he opposed it then wtf 2 u think he will raise te issue nw……i thnk he is damn selfish 4 his well being!!!!! tats ol i cn say guyssssssssssssss!!!!!!!!!!!!

# We can bark,raise eyebrows,complain, ask wat he has done,shuda done dis done tat..a simple questn,ask urself wat hav u done 4 nagas.?

# he is great man …… Bt not 4 da nagas. S a naga, i respect him not s a politician becos he serves not my pple……i wsh he was born by a bihari, in delhi… So that he cud serve da indians in a btter way . Good to know that da indians r learnin to respect its leaders…. May rishang keishing njoy da day !!! cong8888zzzzzzzzzz

# at leastttt he changed chassad to kamjong chassad …it takes this much yr …good …..funny ….good..

# Guys the questions is. Does he raise to this stature by selling nagas? Well he might have help the community that has got nothing to do with the naga issue. The question here is- as everyone here in the group might be aware that since the naga issue is well known, there are high chances that there are business ones marketing the naga issues. Let us say, somes nagas are suffering. what would u do?

# dont knw much bout his politics bt if m not wrong Rishang Keishing is a member of parliament today cos he was defeated by the late Mr.Wungnaoshang Keishing who was strongly supported by the NSCN in state assembly essembly rite???? Otherwise who knws he might still be the CM of manipur today. So m sure the MLAs of the NSCN wud sure have look into their concern. He is not God ..jst one of us, very much a human being… ‎”election”

# Absolutely there is not relation between the service of Reishang Keishing and Naga Issue..Reishang Keishing serves within the constitution of indian whereas the Naga Issue is not within the constitution of Indian..Lets us try to introspect why some of our Naga Tribes are against the issue of Naga..As of today why “Ao,Sema,Poumai etc tribes are not with the Naga Issue”..My humble request is, before we talk of Naga Solution let us first build the unity within ourselves(Naga Brothers and Sisters)

# ‎????????????????? Ao Sema Poumai are not with Naga ISSUE!!! THATS BREAKING/SHOCKING NEWS.. K@

# LOL… Unity is indeed crucial.But right now you seem to be out of your mind,what are you smoking?? ROFL

# ‎”Ao ,Sema and Poumai are not with Naga issue”.Please provide us the whitepaper to a backward people like me. Sorry for being another St. Thomas to this.

# i wonder which tribes fall under the ETC ETC’s??? :-).

# Very sad to hear this bad news hahaha

# I don’t want to read whatever you guys have discussed under this thread, but I keep the faith that all the sons and daughter of the Naga soil must have abused this Indian stooge for making our cause more difficult by siding with Meitei in all his political career. Now finally he is dumped by Meitei and he find himself helpless even without any power to get cabinet seat for his only MLA son. He has nowhere to run, but crying over sour grapes for being the only loyal congress once from manipur even when all other duped him for Akoijam. This foolish man should be hanged by neck until death. He is the reason why the meitei thinks Nagas are after money and power.

# ‎”Ao,Sema and Poumai are not with Naga issue”.I’m still waiting for the proof.

# I have a high respect for Rishang Keising. He is a great person. So as a great person I was/am expecting from him that he will do something for the NAGA. :)

# let us hear from him. I don’t know if T@ is representative for Ao,Sema and Poumai.

Here, I want to boldly claim and say that we the Poumais are with the Nagas from the commencement of Naga struggle for self-determination. Today, if some of the Poumais are not with the Nagas, they are only the traitors. Using Poumai name does not means he or she is representing for the entire Poumai community. Let us hear from him, he must be having some things to say on “Ao, Sumi and Poumai are not with the Naga issue.

# Besides the three tribes he mentioned, etc etc also represents other tribes :-). Maybe my tribe Angami could also be one on his list! hahaha..If this statement was made by a prominent personality of acceptable intellectual and public standing, he would be in trouble BIG TROUBLE by now. But since its widely accepted that there are lots of local Naga nuts on facebook fit for the mental asylums, its better to just excuse this person who assumes himself to be a sort of spokesmen for multiple tribes!!
