Dimapur, September 18: The NSCN (IM) has reiterated that the Naga national flag and Yehzabo (constitution) must form a part of the Indo-Naga political solution in order to qualify the Naga deal as honourable and acceptable.
A resolution to this effect was unanimously adopted in a joint council meeting of NSCN/GPRN held on Friday at CHq Hebron. The meeting deliberated on the historical and political rights of the Naga people and how the Indo-Naga political talks has reached this far.
A statement from the MIP NSCN/GPRN informed that the meeting also resolved that the Government of India and NSCN must seek a final agreement based on the historic Framework Agreement of 3rd August, 2015.
‘Social media misuse’
In a separate statement, the NSCN (IM) expressed indignation at what it alleged was the “social media misuse” to tarnish the image of Naga Army chief and thereby smudge the organization’s name.
“Such a social media nuisance is being floated on Facebook by resorting to hacking personal Facebook account by certain unscrupulous person and using ICICI bank from Madhya Pradesh, targeting the Naga Army Longvibu (Chief) Gen. Ningkhan Shimray, MC @ Anthony Shimray and recklessly pestering him to transfer some money. It is understood that this is being done deliberately for the purpose of character assassination as a part of the malicious propaganda against NSCN,” said the MIP NSCN/GPRN.
“The truth shall, however, withstand any wave of adulterated social media contents and no hacking shall prevail over the truth,” it said.
‘Intangki WS’
The NSCN also termed as “absolutely baseless” the outcry raised by the Zeliangrong Baudi (Nagaland) alleging that NSCN chairman Q Tuccu claimed Intangki Wildlife Sanctuary as “No man’s Land.”
“At no point of time NSCN Chairman during his consultative meeting with the tribal hohos in Dimapur stated that Intangki Wildlife Sanctuary is “No man’s land”. Such allegation is misleading, unfounded and far from ground reality,” the MIP said in another statement.
Recalling that during the Gilgal Camp (National Hoho) held from the 27th March to 2nd April, 1996, one of the resolutions adopted was to protect all reserve forests in Naga areas and preserve from human exploitation and encroachment, the NSCN said the Intangki Wildlife Sanctuary is one such that attracted NSCN’s attention for the preservation of wild life.
“Since then, NSCN had stood by this resolution and protected the sanctuary from illegal encroachment in the face of many attempts made by people with vested interests,” it added. (Page News Service)
