“Will never walk down the path of capitulated peace”
NEWMAI NEWS NETWORK
DIMAPUR, 13th Oct: NSCN-IM on Sunday asserted that it will never "walk down the path of capitulated peace".
Issuing a press statement, NSCN-IM said that true revolutionary patriots will continue to uphold the national trust and "our glorious history".
Ridiculing the stand of the rival group Working Committee (WC) of Naga National Political Groups (NNPGs), NSCN-IM said that when the painful reality got exposed, it became a matter of shame and disgrace for the Nagas "because there are forces at work waiting to exploit this absurdity on the part of some so called Naga leaders claiming to be talking with the Government of India on Naga political solution". It also said, "This is what is happening now at the hands of the confused lot of people who are heading the Working Committee (WC) of Naga National Political Groups (NNPGs) but speaking in contrasting tone".
Recently, when Al Jazeera international news channel interviewed Alezo Venuh of the NNPGs and questioned him on Naga constitution, he came up with the "most abominable answer, saying that unless a country or nation is declared as a nation, how you can have a constitution?” On the other side, Kitovi, the leader of the NNPGs, rubbished the existence of Naga constitution, and said that it can be drafted after signing the agreement for Naga solution, NSCN-IM alleged.
"But, to the media, this same WC of the NNPGs leaders is saying that flag and constitution are an integral part of the negotiations. When this group present themselves as a confused bunch of people, disconnecting themselves from Naga political history as a nation, they are easily manipulated when sitting across the table negotiating in the name of Naga political solution and became 'Yes man' for all practical purposes," NSCN-IM also stated, while adding, "This is the tragic fate of WC of the NNPGs today negotiating with Government of India in the name of Naga political solution".
According to NSCN-IM, any layman on the street would be able to know if the WC of the NNPGs has done any hard negotiation with Government of India representative and interlocutor RN Ravi other than being made to listen attentively on the so-called “Economic Package” in the waiting in the name of Naga political solution. Visibly, the WC of the NNPGs has argued that it should be for the Nagas of Nagaland only. "This is the picture today in the hands of WC of the NNPGs negotiating in the name of Naga political solution", it pointed out. "A milestone for them as they are in damning hurry to sign the agreement anytime soon," it also said, adding, "This is the manner of price they (NNPGs) want to pay for the hundreds of thousands of Nagas who died in the name of Naga freedom".
