Commander-in-chief of NSCN (K) ‘Gen’ Khole Konyak has blamed both NSCN (I-M) general secretary Th. Muivah and the DAN Government for the continuing factional killings among Naga groups.
‘Gen’ Khole in a press release said during the time of Ramyo and Yale in NNC, the duo had always opted for violent means to inflict on Naga brothers, including the house arrest of present NSCN (I-M) chairman Isak Chishi Swu and Th. Muivah.
“When I objected their action, they said if you Koyaks don’t want to join with us don’t join, it will be a loss for you (Konyaks) only. Today Nagas can say whether it is a loss for Konyaks only or for the whole Nagas,” the NSCN (K) leader said.
Khole also said since he had released Swu and Muivah from their house arrest, he felt considered himself as their “saviour” even if the Swu and Muivah did not show any gratitude.
“Not surprisingly, Muivah followed the same policy saying he won’t let his prey to escape. When I objected his violent attitudes, said he refer himself to a tiger and will pounce on the back neck of its prey.” Khole further alleged that the “pouncing” had led to bloodstream flowing through each and every inch of Nagas’ soil.
The NSCN (K) Naga Army chief also said when the earlier DAN Government led by Neiphiu Rio had come to meet him at Changlangshu village under Tobu sub-division, he apprised the government on the foremost need for peace and unification.
He lamented that the same NPF government that came to power the second time had ignored Nagas’ aspiration and endeavour for restoration of peace and unification of Nagas. “Your (DAN Government) policy of partial and one-sided attitude will only encourage further loss of lives and bloodsheds,” Khole added.
Asking whether it was not the Angamis and Aos who started the Naga national movement and struggle for sovereignty, the NSCN (K) leader also questioned whether the present tribal leaders and educated youths were trying to betray the national spirit of their great heroes and leaders who had laid down their lives for Naga sovereignty.
He said the tribal leaders and educated youths should also “justify” instead of remaining silent spectators to the present unification move.
Appealing to all Nagas to come forward and stand unitedly for the cause of Naga unity and sovereignty, Khole reminded that killing and bloodshed amongst Nagas would not pave the way for Nagas’ sovereignty.
He further said the recent incident at Vihokhu unification camp was “not a defeat to Nagas.”
