Naga Soldier

I shun my home, my family, my love.
To serve my Mother is a soldiers’ sacrifice.
To brave and lead towards the foe!
Some will die for Mother’s freedom sake.

Duty to serve, duty to risk,
To run the gauntlet, I gave my life for country.
My blood I paid as ransom of my country’s freedom,
The ultimate cost for freedom’s sake.

Families pride though little solace.
I Sacrificed… Myself for country sake.
Near and dears ones I know not,
Their hearts are torn, grief for me.

The jungles are my home, trees my friends.
The songs of birds reminds me of my youths,
The rivers play me some melancholy music.
As I lay down on the rock, my eye moistened.

Sacrifice for thee my Mother, my Pride,
Though I bear the solemn grief, with pride I wear.
Let my countrymen curve my name on my grave stone,
That my children with tears will bear a pride.

Dedicated to my True Naga Soldier

With Love, Kendy Pamei

Adinno Phizo pays homage to forgotten freedom fighter

Eric Miachieo | November 5

Jakhama: Naga National Council (NNC) President Adinno Phizo today paid homage to one of the forgotten pioneers of the Naga freedom movement, late Visar Viswentso Angami, the third president of the NNC, at his grave at Jakhama village, which is currently in the process of being converted into a monument in memory of the late freedom fighter.

After laying a floral wreath, Adinno Phizo, accompanied by her colleagues, paid a visit to the home of the sole surviving nephew of Visar, Kevilezho Viswentso, where she had interactions with leaders and elders from the village. During the interactions, the villagers reminded Adinno about the contributions of late Visar in the Naga freedom struggle and how his name has become almost forgotten.

Visar Viswentso Angami had served as the NNC President just before the legendary A. Z Phizo, father of Adinno.

Meanwhile, works are underway by the Jakhama village council to convert the non-descript and decrepit grave of the late freedom fighter into a monument where a huge monolith will replace the existing headstone.

Later, addressing a meeting of the Angami Regional Council of the NNC at the Jakhama ground, Ms Phizo said the desire of the people is peace with honour and advised the people to choose the right path so that we are subdued. Emphasising that the most important agenda of the Nagas is to ensure the survival of our race, she called upon the Nagas to progress and exist as a distinct people in this fast-changing world. Gen.(Retd) Viyalie Metha, Kedahge, FGN and other noted Naga leaders also addressed the gathering. Morung Express

Conversation With Mr. Khaplang

By: Thomas | NNC Member.

After eight years of NSCN formation, Mr. Khaplang realized the wrong policy of Muivah and hence decided to apart from him, which led the NSCN split into two factions in 1988. Soon as the split took place among them, Mr. Khaplang declared he stands for unity and solidarity of Nagaland and announced that he will welcome Naga national leaders, public leaders, Church leaders and student leaders who would like to talk with him for national unity and reconciliation.

I took his declaration as a good gesture and opportunity for meeting him to talk for national unity and thus boldly decided to go to meet him. I started from Kohima on 27th November, 1990, along with two other NNC Central Committee Members namely Messrs Ku-o Angami and I. Toshi Ao. We reached the NSCN-K’s Council Headquarters (CHQ) Thingpa, Heimi Region on 6th January 1991. I take Mr. Khaplang as my own elder brother since we are from the same Heimi Region and our discussion was frankly as brothers.

I suggested him to break the barrier which prevents us to stop killings and reunification by denouncing the formation of NSCN as wrong. To form the socialist government was purely the idea and policy of Muivah but not yours, and you have the right to declare the formation of NSCN was wrong.

I felt regretted for Mr. Khaplang blatantly rejected my suggestion, saying: do you think that I was used by Muivah pinching on my ear? As we have no sustainable understanding for national unity, we insisted him and his colleagues to have peace among us (between NNC/FGN and Khaplang group), to which they agreed and signed for peace on 10th January 1991 and we returned back on January 12, 1991.

After ten years, that was in 2000: I went to meet him (Khaplang) again and reached at his Laa Hong CHQ on September 18. I told him; I could reach you after ten years taking the grave risk of my life, for I don’t want the killing among the Nagas and take the risk of my life in the interest of national unity. Since 1991, we could maintain peace among us, and through which we could save many lives. Again today, if we could take another positive step in the interest of peace and reconciliation, we will save many lives again. Unless you denounce the NSCN and relinquish it, there is no way to stop the killings. You may intensively fight against IM group but you can’t overpower them and neither can IM group do to you. But only losing of more lives will be counted sad fully as the result of fighting in between you (IM and K groups). You know the fact by now that Muivah and Isak have politically failed. Their failure is yours as well. Because, even if you are in two different groups, but are in the same NSCN. But if you think, you have optimistic to achieve our cherish goal, please tell me, I’ll absolutely support you and follow you. But he told me nothing. And then I asked him, why then you don’t want to rejoin the NNC/FGN again? What is the reason? Please tell me frankly.

He said; I have three reasons: “the first, I cannot accept the observing Nagaland Independence Day by the NNC. Because the declaration of independence in 1947 was, the Nagas who were under the British colonial rule declared themselves freed from the British colonial rule. As we are free Nagas, we will not accept it. We will observe only the day, our independent and sovereignty is recognized by the world. Secondly, I do not accept calling to rejoining the FGN, for the FGN was formed without participation of free Nagas but only the Nagas who were once under the British rule. Thirdly, I do not accept, the Naga country name “Nagaland”, that is only the name referred to the present so-called Nagaland State. I prefer to have our country name as “United Nagaland”.

My explanations on his points were: that the Nagas in fact did not need to declare independence in those days because we all were free and independent people, but our leaders had done it in order to safeguard the sovereignty of Nagaland in those days of changing world so that no nation could challenge us in the future. To become the British subject, we have no treaty and agreement with the British, and therefore the British have no point to declare granting independent to Nagaland and neither did the Nagas need to declare that they were freed from the British colonial rule. We all were free people and yet, the intention of our leaders to announce our age-old independence to the outside world was only to let the world know the Nagas will remain independent as in ancient time. But not as we were freed from the British rule.

On the Second point: It was explained that the FGN was formed not only by the Nagas who were under the British occupation but including free Nagas from the North-east such as Konyak, Khiamniungan, Chang, Sangtam, Yimchunger and Phom. Among free Nagas, only Heimi and Somra Nagas did not participate due to lack of information and communication.

On the third point: I told him; according to Nagaland Yehzabo (Constitution), Nagaland is comprised of all territories inhabited by the Nagas. Our country name “Ngaland” was given by the NNC leaders when the Naga National Council was formed on 2nd February 1946, and the same was approved by the Tatar Hoho (Parliament) on March 22, 1956, when the Federal Government of Nagaland was duly formed. The name of Indian puppet state was also given as Nagaland in 1960 by the leaders of so-called Naga People’s Convention. It is therefore, name of Nagaland is not only referred to Indian puppet state but all the Naga territories.

And I continued, saying; if you principally accept my suggestion to work for national reconciliation, I will be staying with you here and take time to make Heimi and Koyank national workers understand on our national affairs. When they have fully understood, we can convene a public general meeting in and around Konyak Region and from there we have to declare the NSCN-K group has formally rejoined the NNC/FGN. This is the only way that we can stop killing among the Nagas and brings national unity once again. But Khaplang showed no sign to agree with my suggestion and I returned back to Kohima again.

Later after three years, I reached to his Laa Hong CHQ once again on January 9, 2003. This time our discussion was the most animated and vituperative. When I started to suggest him again to work for national unity by denouncing the NSCN; he angrily responded me saying: “why are you always urging me to rejoin the NNC? What had the NNC done? If the NNC has the way to achieve our national goal, why Phizo has failed to do it? Why Ms. Adinno could not do it? Why are you always saying that only the NNC has the right to tell Naga national history? No! we all have the right to tell our history”.

I responded him saying: if the NNC did not sow the seeds of Naga nationalism, today you and I will not be here to work for the Naga nation, and we will have no history. The NNC has done a lot for the Naga nation and today what we talk about our national history are only the records of the NNC. For the failure, you talk about is not only to be blamed Phizo or Adinno. As Phizo was sent to abroad by our people, he has done his duty to inform the outside world of the Naga national right, the suffering and plight of the Nagas in the hands of India. His efforts captured world opinion to support the Naga cause presenting before the U.N. However, by the news that Naga People’s Convention had accepted statehood under the Indian Constitution hampered his work in 1960s. Again in 1968, the formation of revolutionary government made his work suffered a severe setback again, and moreover the formation of NSCN did the same to his achievement. The Nagas have no unison voice to support Phizo and his daughter Adinno Phizo and neither did extend financial support to them. Then how can they do to make achievement. Even if you were there, you can’t do so.

You are right to say all Nagas can tell the Naga national history, but my point of view is; even if you or Muivah and Isak tell or write the history of the NNC/Naga nation, it won’t become as a history of the NSCN and neither can use it by the NSCN leaders as a history of the NSCN. This fact already proved by Isak and Muivah that without historical background they have no alternative to achieve Naga national goal. Because when they moved away from the NNC, they also moved away from the history and mandate of the people. The history and mandate of the people are not private properties to be taken away or used as one’s own will, but can be used them within the platform of the NNC, since the history is written and mandate is given on the platform of the NNC. This truth Muivah and Isak firmly said in 1976 that “without the NNC there is no short cut way to achieve our national goal”.

However, in 1980, they reversed their stand, stating; “It is arms and arms again that will save our nation and ensure freedom to the people” and hence started a new history in 1980. But they have failed to achieve their expected goal through arms struggle. We are obligated to fight for our national objective is solely based on truth and historical facts. For this reason I urge you to rejoin the NNC. The NNC belongs to all Nagas and rejoining the NNC doesn’t mean surrendering to the NNC. Please don’t compare our national affairs with mere party politics. The politicians of political party are playing politics to form their own party government, and they can dissolve their parties if necessary in the interest of jointly forming a new party whatever the name they agreed upon. But we can’t do the same way, because we are building our nation and striving to solve the conflict with the aggressors by addressing our history. After the problem is solved with the aggressors, then only party politics will be followed. But for now, we should not divert our nationalism into petty party politics or dilute it with other issues or political ideology.

You are a renowned leader among our Heimi people, your life should not be ended in bad record. Our lives are in the hands of God and we don’t know when our lives will be taken away by our Lord God. The killing among the Nagas started in our time and it should not be handed down to the younger generation without solving it. This is needed to solve by you before you die in the larger interest of our people and for the sake of your good record as well. The enemy is playing delaying tactics to solve the conflict with the Nagas. And as long as we are divided we can do nothing to achieve our national goal in our life time, instead we will be adding to succeeding the enemy’s policy.

As you asked me the question “what the NNC has done?”; so also some Nagas will ask you, what the NSCN has done? What will be your answer? He said nothing. I continued saying; as soon as you have formed the NSCN; you, the NSCN crushed down Khiamniungan Region in 1980, where the NSCN killed more than 500 Khiamniungan people, and then in 1984-85, the NSCN waged war against Lainong Nagas and there too the NSCN killed more than 800 Lainongs and razed down their villages into ashes. In 1988, the NSCN split into two factions, and now the two factions are joining hands with the enemies and fighting against each other. When the Indian elections are conducted the two NSCN factions are intentionally and diligently involving in the Indian elections. By forcefully they are collecting money from the Naga people and building their luxurious lives. All these are not that the NSCN has done? He said; some of Western Naga leaders have been doing as what you said.

The fighting among the NSCN factions is happening according to prophetic words which told you in 1984 through the boy Kummo Heimi in Eastern Nagaland and also Evangelist Athui Zeliang from Western Nagaland. The boy told you the words emanated by the Holy Spirit, that you should relinquish the NSCN setup and rejoins the NNC. If you do not obey Me, more killings will be happened among yourselves. On this Mr. Khaplang said: yes, we failed to obey the words of the Holy Spirit. We were told to summon FGN leaders including President Zashei Huire from Western side and have a meeting hosting a white flag on the hill top between Tsünkhao and Kingphu villages and declare reuniting with the NNC in the spirit of forgive and forget. He narrated it with regretfully. But no action was followed up accordingly.

And lastly, I gave another suggestion to form a committee from his group comprising five or seven members. The NNC/FGN has a committee and the two committees should have continuous and intensive talk for reconciliation. I could come to you once after ten years or five years, we therefore should have continuous talk through our committees in order to build up well understanding for reconciliation. On this my suggestion, he said; I have Council of Kilonsers (Ministers) and should have to discuss with them for your suggestion. But till date he has done nothing for the reconciliation. Now it is running more than ten years again.

A Tribute to Naga Army on Their Golden Jubilee Celebration

By: Kaka D. Iralu, 5 Jan. 2014

As a writer who had followed the Naga army right from 1956 to the present, I would like to present the following facts to the Naga public in appreciation of one of the most outstanding army in the world.

1. When the Naga army was formed in the 1950’s as the Safe Guards and then the Home Guards, it was only a rag tag army of courageous and determined soldiers. It became the Naga army only on 3rd Jan. 1964. At its initial stages, among its ranks of officers, there was not a single Military Academy trained officer who was trained in the modern arts of military warfare. Most of their officers were class six seven passed students instructed by some Naga soldiers from the Naga Regiment in Assam and elsewhere. They also did not have any modern weapons like Tanks, Artillery or even Mortars. But in spite of all their draw backs, armed with only some derelict Second World War rifles of a few Bren guns and Sten guns, they were able to hold back a modern army that was assisted by heavy artillery, light armored tanks and even Jet fighters. As to the numbers of this invading Indian army, even at the initial stages, their numbers were over 53,000 troops. The Naga army simply increased their armories with the seized arms of their slain enemies. This rag tag army subsisted in the jungles on almost half rations and starvations though out nineteen years of fierce fightings (1956 to 1975. In these 19 years of fierce battles, they slipped into East Pakistan and even China many times to bring back guns and ammunitions on their backs. They went in batches of hundreds and even thousands but always fought their way back to Nagaland across international boundaries.

Despite their heroic effort and sacrifices, they were not able to defeat India’s mighty armies. But the opposite is equally true- that the Indian army also was never able to defeat the Naga Army in the battlefield. Their fierce battles came to a stalemate when an inter-national Cease Fire was finally agreed to in 1964 by both the parties in conflict.
Now, for a rag tag army like the Naga Army to be able to achieve such an international cease fire with the second biggest army in the world is no mean feat of military achievement. Here, every Naga citizen should salute the personnel of the Naga army for their undefeatable spirit of patriotism to the nation. Never shall their names be ever forgotten in the annals of military history.

Other armies of other nations also have their own unique achievements. For example the Afghan guerrilla fighters under their War lord Sha Masoodh were able to force the Russian army back to Russia from Afghanistan. They were however able to achieve this splendid victory due to the heat seeking Stinger Missiles that were supplied to them by the United States. With these missiles, they were able to blow off the Russian Helicopters and fighter planes from the skies of Afghanistan. Equally splendid was the victory of the Vietnam soldiers who were able to drive out the mighty American forces from Vietnam. But here again, the Vietnam army was assisted by all kinds of modern weapons massively supplied by Russia. In the case of the Naga army whatever arms they could procure from other nations like the then East Pakistan and China were only the arms and ammunitions that they could carry across international boundaries on their bare backs!

2. Another great feat of our Naga army was their successful crossing of the uninhabited and unthrodden Hukwang valley in western Burma. This valley was feared for its impenetrable thick jungles and dangerous terrains. Even the Japanese army who were considered the best foot soldiers in the world was afraid to cross this valley in their quest for the conquest of India in the Second World War.

The Japanese army had conquered almost the whole of south East Asia mostly on foot by 1944, and the shortest route for conquest of India would be through the Hukwang valley. But fearing death through starvation, disease and hardships, they came through the Arakan. On the other hand, our Naga army, not only once, but several times hacked their way across this endless forest. On many occasions, they even had to fight all across the thick jungles for several months. Some of the Naga soldiers who trekked across this valley described their experiences as like walking across a spring mattress as the forest floor was so thick with centuries of decomposed leaves. They also told me that sometimes they walked for weeks not seeing the sun’s light even during daytime. This was because of the tall giant trees that covered the whole valley with their leaves and thick foliage. One of their heroic trips is mentioned in my book “The Naga Saga “under the title, “A journey into the jaws of death”

We Nagas as a nation have a courageous army of which we can all be proud of. At Sakraba, on 3rd January, it was indeed very moving to see all those elderly Generals, Brigadiers, Colonels and even Majors in full uniforms still refusing to surrender. Let us all remember that what we are today is all because of their sacrifices yesterday. NPN

Naga army raising golden jubilee celebration Greetings 2

Brig. (Retd) S.Singnya, Kedahge, Federal Government of Nagaland.

Dear Countrymen,
On this historic occasion of celebrating Naga Army Raising Day, Golden Jubilee, I greet you all on behalf of Naga Army and on my own behalf. I give thanks to our Almighty God who has protected and sustained us till this memorable day.
At this moment, I salute all our martyrs who gave their supreme sacrifice for the cause of our Nation and for whom we are remaining as a people and a Nation today. Heartily, I express my profound gratitude to all the living National Workers for remaining steadfast and upholding the National and Historical rights despite the tremendous hardships and afflictions that have befallen our people and engulfed our land.
When the atrocious actions of India on our people became unbearable, the NNC decided to maintain a Safeguard Force with Gen. Thonti Chang as Chief from 1955-1957. This was changed to Naga Home Guard with Gen. Kaito Sukhai as its Chief from 1957-1963. Due to necessity, the formal Naga National Army was declared on the 3rd January, 1964 after the return of Alee Command from East Pakistan in 1963. Gen. Mowu Gwizantsu was the Chief of Naga Army from 1964-1968. Gen. Thinoselie Keyho succeeded him and was the Chief from 1968-1971. Gen. Viyalie Metha was the Chief from 1971-1997 whose term was the longest. Lt. Gen. Menukhrielie Shorhie served from 1997-1998.  After his demise, Lt. Gen. Lhipelo Alo became the Chief from 1998-2003.
Under the Kedahge, FGN Brig. Retd. S. Singnya, Lt. Gen. T.M. Rhakho is serving as the Dy. C-in-C of Naga Army from 16 April, 2006 up to date.
In defence of our land the Naga Army had bravely fought unaccountable number of battles with the Indian Army in the course of our history of conflict for the cause of freedom; thousands and thousands of our braves perished, thousands of our people were tortured using third degree method, unaccountable number of woman raped and molested. Many of our braves perished in Indian jails and the mortal remains are yet to be retrieved. The mortal remains of many braves even now lie scattered in foreign soils.
All these hardships and sufferings are because of defending our land and people. It is incomprehensible how villages and granaries were being burnt down and people grouped in concentration camps where many died of starvation. Countless numbers of our people were slaughtered like egad animals. This is the gravity of how our people suffered. The Nation is ever indebted to all braves who defended our land which the outside world never knows. We honour them and shall ever remember them.
Under these unimaginable situations, the Naga Army shot down a Dakota plane of IAF at Matikhru on 14th August, 1960 and arrested 9 crew members. In relaliation, 6 villages were entirely wiped out and the menfolk of Matikhru village were butchered. It is however note worthy that the crew members were civilly treated, escorted and safely deported to their homes. Crew member of this time are a living witness to this fact today. This is how the Naga Army combated occupation, domination and terrorism of India.
Following the partition of 1980 and further divisions later, fratricidal killings had affected our people and the national cause up to 2008. Because of these misadventures, our people became victims of divisiveness. However, I express that through the NNC/FGN, the 14th August Declaration of Independence, 1947 and the Plebiscite of 16th May, 1951, the uniqueness and the identity of Nagas as a nation is safeguarded to this day.
I am happy and thankful to God for giving me the privilege to be the Dy. C-in-C, Naga Army on this historic National Day. At this moment I congratulate all the recipients of Awards, Medals, Commendation and Promotion in the rank and file of Naga Army. Together we will continue to defend our land and our people till our will and goal is fulfilled.
May the Almighty God enable us to remain steadfast in our determination to be bearers of the will and aspiration of our people to be free and independent people in letter and spirit in the world comity.
May God bless Nagaland and the Naga Army.

Naga army raising golden jubilee celebration

By: Lt. Gen. T.M. Rhakho, Dy. Commander-In-Chief, Naga Army.:    3 Jan. 2014 2:08 AM IST

 Dear Countrymen,

On this auspicious and historical occasion, as we celebrate the Golden Jubilee of the Naga Army Raising Day, the NNC/FGN would like to greet and congratulate the Naga Army and all rank and files of the establishment. The NNC/FGN Government is people’s government, established to maintain the integrity and dignity of the people and the nation. Therefore, as we commemorate this day, it takes us back to 3rd January 1964 where the formal Naga National Army formation was recognized and declared. However, our history of self-defence to safeguard our territorial integrity goes back to 1955 where Gen. Thonti Chang was honoured with becoming the first Chief of the Army. Whereupon, in 1957 the army set up was reckoned as Naga Home Guard where Gen. Kaito Sukhai, took over as the Chief of the Army till 1963.  This day, the 3rd January 2014 is a celebration of the heroic dedication and commitment of those brave souls who stood tall in the service of the nation.
In our commemoration, we must take this to heart that our nation, along with her setups, especially in the military sphere has come a long way. We have stood strong and committed to the cause of the nation then, and now the same is demanded of this generation. We must take pride in safeguarding our territory and the integrity of our establishment through loyalty and honesty without wavering back and forth and turning to left and the right. In this regard, we must once again dedicate ourselves without reservation to hold on to the principles as set forth in the President Assent to Bill of the Naga Army Rules and Regulations of the 5th of January 1971.
On this day we must remind ourselves that no individual agenda is greater than a corporate effort. We must not allow our self-interest and greed to take over the cause of the nation. If we should succeed and must move forward it will depend much on our concerted effort from the lowest in the setup to the highest. We must display an unqualified dedication as soldiers and exhibit genuine commitment to the cause of our nation. At no point of time in our history such an attitude is seen as wanting and desired. As your service to the nation is recognized through promotion and awards today, it calls for greater obligation through commitment and dedication. In doing so, the Raising Day is a reminder to all of us that we are called into the service of the nation to sacrifice what we can best offer.
We must adhere strictly to the discipline of setup. We cannot and must not allow pride and arrogance to dominate our attitude in the service of the nation. We can only earn the public appreciation and recognition through hard work and discipline. We must not pull down the pride and glory of the bygone years and generations through callous behaviours that often lure us. We have come a long way in defending our nation from outside forces by displaying loyalty to the nation. We have gained respect enabling the Government of India to enter into a ceasefire agreement in 1964. This act in itself, testifies to our strength and we must continue to harness the benefit of it by showing further devotion without losing our ground through careless behaviour holding on to displaying a responsible attitude even in times when things do not seem favourable and conducive. To do so is the call of duty.
The sacrifices that the generations of yesteryears had made can only be honoured if we continue to stand and walk in the path that they have walked. In the history of our nation, we have come to a continual threat of deserting this path over and over again. But, thus far our government has withstood the pressure by staying true and faithful to the principles of upholding the historical rights of the Nagas.
This, I must admit is not the effort of the few who are put in the position of leadership but each and everyone in the setup has played a significant role though many times this are less recognized as if it were ignored. But today let it be known and be put in record that we are all an important block of the NNC/FGN government in civil or in military.
Today, to those who will be moving ahead in the ranks and files I must say this that you are today given a greater responsibility. You cannot take your recognition and promotion for granted. It is in the first place, not a privilege but a responsibility which you must dispense through sincere dedication and devotion to the service of the nation. You must realize that you are occupying a position in history which is in itself historic. Some of you are occupying positions whose place are hard to fill and therefore, the only call that you have is to be like those who have gone before you. This commitment has made you deserving of the position. Thus, may I urge each one of you to serve the nation with pride and unqualified dedication; nothing should come your way in dispensing your duty respecting the wish of the people and the command of your superiors. Remember, all of us are accountable to each other and to God Almighty who is our Commander-in-Chief.
I wish you God’s blessing and may you serve the nation in good conscience knowing that in our service we are not alone. May God bless your family and the nation on this day and in the days to come.

Unresolved solution of Indo-Naga political problem by NNC & FGN

P. Wati Jamir, Secretary, Ministry Kilo Affairs, NNC (N/A).:    11 Nov. 2013 3:16 AM IST

1. In the year 1946 the Naga National Council was formed for their self-determination and to decide for their own future of the Nagas as a political organization.
2. In the year June 1947 the British Indian Government represented by Sir Akbar Hydari Ali, the then governor of Assam entered with the NNC known as the nine point agreement, but it ended within days of signing of the nine point’s agreement.

3. The Govt. of NNC of 22 March 1956 announced the establishment of the Federal Government of Nagaland (FGN) as an armed wing of the NNC and take up arms to resist the Indian, armed forces.

4. The creation of Nagaland state in the year 1962 under the banner of Naga people’s convention (NPC) which is known as the sixteen point agreement under the constitution of Indian Government.

5. The Indian government and the FGN signed the first cease-fire agreement on May 24, 1964 which came into effect on 6 September 1964 therefore, the first peace talks between the Indian government and FGN was held at the peace camp Chedema on 23 September 1964.

6. The biggest mistake in the course of Naga national movement history that shocked the entire Naga people was the signing of the Shillong Accord on 11th November 1975 between the NNC/FGN and Indian government.

7. The unconditional acceptance of the Indian constitution.

8. To surrender of all the arms and ammunitions the outright rejection of the Shillong Accord by the Naga people’s and totally condemned by the NNC leaders and officially denounce the Shillong Accord the senior leaders of the NNC and FGN asked the then president of NNC A.Z. Phizo Angami to condemn the Accord unconditional and without any delay and repeatedly urged him a number of times to condemn theAccord as it was the works of some traitors, but instead he went on welcoming the traitor’s including his own younger brother Kevi Yillie the architect of the accord.

However the NNC leaders repeatedly requested A.Z. Phizo to condemn the Accord, because this was against the will of the Naga people fighting for their sovereign rights. But he totally refused to condemn the Shillong Accord till he went to the grave in 1990.

After that Shillong Accord Agreement the government of India provided rehabilitation packages to the NNC and FGN government and confined under the protection of occupational force by the Indian armed security forces in their designated peace transit camps and providing all the essential commodities and basic need possession’s which has been going continuing till today.

Then why these organization the NNC, NNC (Accordist) NNC (Parent body), FGN, NNC/FGN posing themselves under the name of National movement are imposing forceful taxation, donation, contribution and etc. from the Naga people because they getting enough money rehabilitation packages, privileges prestige and services from the Indian government and abroad.

The (NNC/FGN) leaders based in London living in lavish residences cannot bring back the Naga people’s sovereign rights which they have sold out in the infamous Shillong Accord. But bring the death bodies led by A.Z. Phizo and the so-called executive members and leaders after 40-50 years to be cremated in the grave of the Naga soil.

So, we are very sorry to say that the Naga Revolutionary Movement started by the NNC government and the armed wing (FGN) government has ended their national movement on 11th November 1975 in the Shillong Accord by accepting unconditional agreements, surrendering of all the arms with the Indian government and came out overground under the Indian constitution.

This was the greatest betrayal to the Naga national movement the government of NNC and FGN no longer represent the Naga national struggle for the Naga people. The government of NNC (N/A) totally condemn the infamous Shillong Accord.

The leaders of non-accordist (N/A) totally condemn the Shillong Accord as this lead to the formation of NNC (N/A). The government of NNC (N/A) under the leadership of His Excellency president Kiumukam Yim and General Secretary Hozetho Chophy are standing against all odds and are ready to sacrifice and safeguard the political social economic and territorial rights of Naga people.
Therefore, the NNC and FGN government of the Shillong Accord are requested not to make business and identity using the name of this organizations for their selfish interest, so that the past mistakes should not be repeated. Let us all preserve and respect the basic history of our Nagas. Kuknalim. NPN
