Nagaland News

DIMAPUR, NOVEMBER 24: The NSCN (R), headed by its collective leaders Y Wangtin Naga and P Tikhak, has expressed hope that good sense would prevail upon “our good friend” Akato Chophy, who had recently announced a split from the group and formed an outfit under his command.

In a statement issued on Wednesday, the NSCN (R) said: “It is extremely painful and saddening to thrust our people with burden rather than hope, which we had been prayerfully waiting and expecting for years”.
Sensing “unwarranted situation”, very painstaking and genuine efforts were made to bury the differences between the then NSCN (R) leadership on October with the intervention of WC-NNPG Convenor, Kitovi Zhimomi, it stated.
“…but unfortunately, Mr. Akato himself chose to defy and went ahead by announcing the split. But, we would like to assure all our Naga men and women and all tribal hohos that, NSCN/GPRN (Reformation) will never go against the wishes of the people and we will abide by what our people will command”, read the statement.
It also lauded the “maturity and statesmanship” shown by the Sumi Kukami Hoho. The group appreciated the magnanimity and sagacity shown by the Sumi Kukami Hoho.
“It is an undeniable fact that the Sumis are one of the most contributing tribes among the Nagas in the Naga national political struggle. Be it physically, financially, socially or emotionally, the Sumis have always stood their ground. The contribution of our Sumi brothers and sisters will always be etched in golden letters in the history of Naga political struggle”, it stated.
