Urges President to revoke ‘expulsion order’

Dimapur, September 15: At least 25 members of the NSCN/GPRN (K), including Council of Kilonsers, Military Wing and entire functional regional authorities, except the Konyak Region has affirmed their support for General Secretary and Co-Convenor, WC, NNPGs, Col (Retd) Isak Sumi.
“We feel that the so called impeachment or expulsion drama is extremely dictatorial and unilateral since the decision was taken without following protocol or serving show-cause notice. There was also no prior consultation or deliberation among the council of Kilonsers, Tatars (CCM’s), the general party workers including the regional authorities and the military set-up as is the usual procedure as demanded of any such major issues,” the members stated in a press statement.
The members also considered the decision as “not only against the spirit of the Constitution (Yehzabo) but also null and void”. They appealed to the President to revoke the “illegal and unconstitutional expulsion order” so as to avoid any misunderstanding or disunity within the NSCN (K) but to convene a general party session to discuss and decide the issue for we are of the firm belief that such unilateral decision would only cause irreparable rift and embarrassment before the entire world and the Nagas.
They also requested the President to honour the covenant between the NNPGs with regard to the anti-defection agreement signed and reaffirmed four times, at this crucial juncture when a political solution is finally being anticipated “we cannot afford to create disharmony, antagonism and distrust amongst the NNPG/WC by inducting an outcast and a habitual defectors into high profile positions.”(Full Text)
