Speech of Yilow Humtsoe the Acting President of NNC (Parent Body) on the occasion of Naga National Republic Day of 22nd March, 2021

We the Naga National Council (Parent Body) praise God for His wonderful and merciful guidance and strength for the Nagas to establish a Government with a democratic constitution as a people and nation 65 years ago on this day of 22nd March,1956.

The Naga National Council on this day with sincerity would like to honour and remember the Naga Martyrs who sacrificed themselves for the cause of Naga Sovereignty and those who are still working for the Naga Nation to be recognised as a country and nation in the world. We salute the martyrs on this occasion and we will continue to pray for the salvation of our Naga Homeland.
However, today it is sad and shameful that two Republic Day is celebrated- that of democracy government and socialism government with sharp political division within the same people and nation.
And till date we the Nagas could not come together to resolve this basic differences of two political stand and Governments, it is a shame in front of our own people and the world at large. This is all because of hatred , stubbornness and divisiveness that exist within ourselves.
The Nagas especially the national workers and groups must come together to work out the consensus political stand for solution for all and whole Naga people. There will never be a solution as seen very clearly unless Nagas become united for the purpose of the achievement of our freedom. The Government of India (GOI) at this point is taking full advantage of Naga division with the motive to prolong the political problem between the Naga people and GOI as seen time and again in the past and present dispensation. But if at all GOI were to take their own bias decision for their own interest for Naga solution without honouring the historical and political rights of the Nagas then GOI will be fully responsible and held accountable if any unwanted political situation arises out of it.
In regard to the present political turmoil in Burma, the NNC is concerned and must tell our people in the region to stand firm for the Naga rights as free and independent people from time immemorial, and also must stand for the best system of democracy governance for progress and development.
The NNC being the parent body of the Naga people have seen enough and come across all the political development of coup and military rule for the last many years of tyranny and brutality for the people of ethnic and indigenous inhabitants, it is best for the people to be separated from military rule for their own independent governance, therefore the down trodden people of Nagas, Kachin, Karen and Shan should be officially recognised by the United Nations and other democratic countries of the world for this long and rightful original people to establish their recognised Government to rule themselves for peace and development. Therefore the Naga National Council strongly stand for the right of these nationalities in Burma region for freedom. For the Nagas have historical and political rights to live together as one people and nation.
The Naga National Council once again reiterate our stand for the Naga National unity as this is the only way to bring peace and tranquility in the Homeland, and to achieve our very freedom for the best interest of our people and Homeland. Therefore we appeal once again to all the political groups to take it seriously the very appeal mentioned above to come together for the salvation of our people and nation. The Naga National Council will always stand for peace and non violence as it has always been the stand of the NNC from the beginning.

Once again we praise God for this occasion and thank all the Naga people for upholding in prayer for the National rights and freedom. May God save the Naga people. KUKNALIM
