Dimapur, September 6: The NSCN (IM) has put on record that it stands for peaceful solution of the Indo-Naga political issue.
“That was the reason how the Second Indo-Naga Ceasefire was brought about in 1997. But it is a matter of regret that the Government of India has failed to demonstrate the desired sincerity and commitment despite 23 years of peace talks. This is the crux of the ongoing talks,” the NSCN said in a statement issued by its MIP.
The statement urged the Government of India to revisit the hard earned achievements of the Indo-Naga peace process and push forward in the desired direction to bring solution that is honourable and acceptable to both the parties.
Meanwhile the NSCN (IM) has condemned what it alleged was the “selective war mongering reportage of The Telegraph.”
“It is understood that The Telegraph has sensationalized one particular sentence quoting from the Nagalim Voice August 2020 Editorial: “They are still ready to fight another war if their political rights and history are not respected” (in its news report titled: NSCN-IM: Nagas ready for fresh ‘war’) dated September 3, 2020 which went viral already on social media,” it said.
“NSCN regret the selective war mongering reportage of The Telegraph and NSCN condemn it with all sincerity.” (Page News Service)
