ENNWF says no to ‘imposed solution’


Dimapur, October 28: The Eastern Naga National Workers Forum (ENNWF) of the NSCN (IM) has said that “imposed solution” with some economic package that the WC of NNPGs is vying for is a “pure mockery and betrayal” to the Naga living history and their easy agreement with the Government of India within 2 years of the so-called peace talks only for Nagas of Nagland is nothing more than an insult to the souls of thousands of Naga martyrs, who sacrificed their lives for a shared future in the course of freedom struggle.
The ENNWF said that after a tough resistance, the NSCN earned the second phase ceasefire setting the principle that the Indo-Naga political imbroglio would be solved through peaceful negotiation is not a childish game and 22 years of negotiation is not for a section of Nagas but for all.
It asked the NNPGs to realize that Naga national struggle is not only meant for the India crafted Nagaland state alone.
“Having used the nomenclature as ‘Naga National’ and on one hand betraying the Naga people does not qualify a good statesmanship, which cannot be justified by history and principle, and such an action is a disgrace to revolutionary fraternity at large,” it stated.
Calling for unity to fight against all the evils so as to live as a dignified nation amongst others, the forum said, “Let us not forget that human drawn boundary lines do not actually divide people but it is disunity and misconceived pride that divides us in reality,” adding, “Our position as inclusive solution should not concern other Nagas that we the Eastern Nagas are trying to, for instance, settle in the Nagaland state. We have our land and territory but we look for all inclusive solution so that we exist as a sovereign nation with the distinct identity. We have to overcome all the artificial boundaries imposed on us.”
Reacting to the press statements of NNPGs with the effort to seal off the solution for Nagas of Nagaland alone, the ENNWF called upon every Naga regardless of tribes and regions to outrightly condemn and reject such a deal.
To make its position clear, the ENNWF said any solution which denies the Eastern Nagas and dishonours the Naga people as a sovereign nation, the forum would not own any responsibility in the future for any eventuality.
It further reminded the NNPGs that solution must be acceptable and honourable which encompasses all the Nagas wherever they live.
The forum declared its support to the collective leadership of NSCN in an effort to secure Naga National Flag and Constitution which are the backbone of Naga people as a sovereign nation with the distinct identity. (Page News Service)
