Nagaland People’s Front (NPF) has clarified that the DAN government was absolutely neutral towards all underground groups and was neither against nor in support of any particular group.
Responding to the statement of commander-in-chief of NSCN (K) ‘Gen’ Khole Konyak that the DAN government’s “policy of partial and one-sided attitude” towards a particular faction would only encourage further loss of lives and bloodshed, general secretary, NPF, Dr. Kath in a press release said the DAN government had, on several occasions, made its stand very clear as far as its approach to the peace process and the Naga political issue was concerned.
Kath said the DAN had always advocated understanding, reconciliation and oneness among all underground groups and, time and again, appealed for cessation of hostilities between various underground groups. He said DAN had also appealed to all groups to adhere to the ceasefire ground rules in the interest of peace and maintenance of normalcy in the State.
The NPF party also pointed out that the DAN Government had set up the Political Affairs Committee at both the Government and the party level to facilitate the peace process and to work towards understanding within the Naga family.
“Despite the fact that the State Government is not a direct party to the ongoing negotiations, we are sincere and dedicated in our role as an active facilitator and we will continue to strive so as to bring lasting peace,” NPF added.
Stating that Naga people were crying out for peace and an end to the senseless killings, the party also it would welcome any positive suggestion from senior leaders like Gen Khole Konyak that would lead towards peace and understanding.
It may be mentioned ‘Gen’ Khole had also alleged that the NPF-led government that came to power the second time had ignored Nagas’ aspiration and endeavour for restoration of peace and unification of Nagas.
On CLP leader Chingwang Konyak’s allegations against the State Government and the chief minister on the utilization of the Nagaland Road Development Project fund, the NPF said the Congress had only succeeded in exposing its immaturity and negative attitude to the public.
