DIMAPUR, MARCH 24: The Janata Dal (United), Nagaland Unit, today said that any solution to the Naga political issue must be ‘unique’ in nature as the Government of India has recognized the ‘unique history of the Nagas’.
It further said, “in this very uniqueness lies the symbolic issues which includes both the Flag and the Constitution and any solution to the Naga problem must address this symbolic issues in such dimensions honourable to the negotiating groups.
In a press release issued by its publicity wing, the JD (U) Nagaland alleged that certain Naga individuals and political leaders are trying to deviate from such core issues within an intention to vitiate the fragile mind of the Naga populace and such Nagas are desperately trying to woo innocent Nagas with high sounding economic and developmental package.
“Such elements must be resisted and such people must also refrain from misleading the people. Naga cause is very dear and therefore, no individual or groups must indulge so as to make gains for themselves or please others at the higher helms for intended political mileage”, it stated.
At the same time, the JD (U), Nagaland, called upon national workers to ensure that they refrain from indulging in electoral process being held under the Indian Constitution and said such intervention, officially or otherwise, only downgrade the noble status of the Naga National Movement and it creates disdain in the minds of the Naga public towards the Naga political struggle.
“If there are elements within the National Workers who has the tendency to indulge, they must come out and openly participate in the electoral process, instead of acting in camouflage or de facto for their individual gains and causing bad image to the whole issue”, it said and called upon those so-called National Workers who are using Naga National Movement as an industry for their selfish interest to desist from such action.
