NSA condemns SF raids


Dimapur, June 6: The Naga Scholars’ Association (NSA) has expressed concern on the excessive and diabolical scheme of the Indian army and the para military in the midst of crucial negotiation between the Government of India (GoI) and the Naga Nationalist groups for political settlement.
“The duality of peace talk and the act of infliction on the Naga national negotiators and their cadres has become very prominent. Of late, several disturbing excessive acts of the Indian army and the para military on the members of the negotiating groups have come to the fore,” it said in a release.
NSA said one of the most destructive schemes is the raid of the house of V. Nagi, General Secretary of the Naga National Council (Parent Body) and co-convenor of the Working Committee of six NNPGs on June 2 at Jotsoma.
NSA also said the apprehension of Moses Zeliang, a cadre of civil wing of the NSCN (IM) at Naga Gaon village, Dimapur on June 2 by the Assam Rifles is quite another.
Stating that the GoI is answerable to all such excesses, whether or not it is a deliberate scheme or was done at the behest of the army personnel themselves, the NSA said the ambiguity needs to be cleared and addressed to restore the trust deficit and usher congenial atmosphere for peace talk.
“The GoI should be sensitive and be sincere to the on-going political negotiation. Necessary prompt measures should be taken as it strives to solve the Naga political issue,” it added.
