Dimapur, September 9: The NSCN (IM) has stated that the NSCN has never divided the Naga society on the basis of ‘primary and secondary stakeholder’ of Naga cause.
“NSCN has been working all these years towards fostering unity among the family. It is in this spirit that NSCN continues to abide by the Covenant of Reconciliation signed twelve years ago under the aegis of Forum for Naga Reconciliation,” said David Mero, Kilo Kilonser, NSCN/GPRN.
“We all have to admit that some of the mistakes and wrong perpetrated to one another cannot be undone. It will be futile to continuously argue on the mistakes committed, intentionally or unintentionally, in the journey of freedom. History has sufficiently warned us about repetition of such errors.”
In an appeal issued today, Mero said it is vital that Nagas remain united and display maturity and responsibility for each other’s well-being. He prayed for wisdom for all the Nagas to collectively work to heal the badly wounded nation.
“We need to shed our personal differences and come together. Many of us have become too sensitive to how others hurt us while being not sensitive enough to how we hurt others. As sons and daughters of the soil, and as responsible heir to our legacy, let us keep building Naga nation as our national vision. Our common aspiration and vision for a Naga nation must outshine our petty differences and adversary’s policy to divide us,” he added. (Full Text) (Page News Service)
