Naga sentiments cannot be discarded: NSCN (IM)


Dimapur, October 22: The NSCN (IM) has accused Government of India of sowing the seed of division in the name of pushing for Naga solution without getting the “mandated blessing.”
In a statement, the NSCN (IM) accused the GoI of machinating the use of primary stakeholders by adopting “yes men groups” and ignoring the others.
“But, in the absence of majority Naga tribal groups, this so called primary stakeholders is not only a misnomer but against the Naga’s democratic practice. This is simply sowing the seed of division in the name of pushing Naga solution without getting the mandated blessing,” it stated.
The NSCN (IM) also insisted that in the name of going along with contemporary reality, the political decency and Naga sentiment cannot be simply discarded into the dust bin of flattery.
“Under the pretext of compromising with contemporary reality, which is a machination of the Government of India to hoodwink the Nagas into submission, the agreed principle of honorable and acceptable solution cannot be sidelined into oblivion. Unfortunately, the Government of India’s insincere approach has brought down the Indo-Naga political talks to this level,” it claimed.
On Government of India represented by Interlocutor RN Ravi blaming the NSCN negotiators for practicing procrastinate negotiation, the NSCN (IM) said, “It matters Naga’s pride and identity. It matters Naga’s future and security. It matters Naga’s covenant with God. And, this is the reason why Nagas are sentimentally attached with flag and constitution.” (Page News Service)
