+100%-

Dimapur, September 11: The NSCN (IM) today said that the Government of India is talking with NSCN because NSCN represents the issue of the Nagas that covers all Nagas and their territories, adding NSCN represents the Naga people and the national issue.
It also said the NSCN represents the Naga people including village chiefs, civil societies/organizations, political parties and the Churches whereas Government of India represents India including its states.
The NSCN (IM) stressed that the talk is between Government of India (GoI) and the National Socialist Council of Nagalim (NSCN) as two entities and the question of stakeholders does not arise.
Quoting Th Muivah, the NSCN (IM) said the stakeholders are welcome if they want to be part of the ‘Framework Agreement’.
A statement issued by the MIP said that it would be a horrible loss for both the Nagas and the Indians if they miss this second bus.
“No one should doubt that Framework Agreement is the meeting point for the Nagas and the Indians. The Nagas and the Indians are inseparably inter related in many fields. We must learn to co-exist for mutual benefits,” it said adding, “The Nagas will not merge into the Union of India, but they will co-exist with the Union of India as two entities. Nagas are a recognized entity. Nagas do not accept Indian constitution, but Nagas and Indians will share sovereign powers based on competencies.”
Stating that “to every problem, there is a solution,” the NSCN(IM) said every possible way must be explored to find the long-cherished solution. [Full Text]
