NSCN (I-M) has alleged that the incident taking place in Tirap district of Arunachal Pradesh has exposed the “incontrovertible” evidence of Assam Rifle’s animosity towards NSCN.
“India’s proxy war against NSCN is getting obnoxiously demeaning. This time round the GoI will have much to explain with regards to Arunachal situation,” the NSCN (I-M) in a release issued by its MIP stated.
It claimed that the Assam Rifles, to confront NSCN in Tirap, have joined forces not only with “K-group” but invited “Manipur’s People’s Army (MPA)”, Assam’s ULFA and “Burma’s Kachin Independent Army (KIA)”, but in the guise of “K-group” cadres.
The NSCN (I-M) maintained that “combine forces” in recent weeks were a source of nuisance to the villagers in Lapnan Village in Tirap.
It alleged that “combine forces” not only harassed the public but drained their meager economic resources by forcing them to contribute in the form of rice, pig and even mobile handsets.
Manfolk of the village, the NSCN (I-M) claimed, left the village fearing abduction and reported the matter to the AR authorities, but the AR’s were not the least bothered to listen to their woes.
“Eventually the situation turned for the worst when the Naga Army has to launch operation against the marauding forces of ULFA, MPA, KIA and K-group,” MIP release asserted.
It went on and claimed that Assam Rifle instead of trying to identify the “terrorist groups” showed their discriminating character by openly taking side with the “very groups” they have been fighting in Assam, Manipur and Indo-Burma border.
“This reflects the AR’s overriding aim to suppress the NSCN at any cost, using inconceivable forces. This is the absurdity of the situation in Tirap at the hand of the terrorist groups with AR backing them,” MIP/GPRN charged.
Meanwhile, the NSCN (I-M) alleged that the “outlandish idea” of AR was going the way of any “terrorist groups in North east.”
“But for Home Ministry’s intelligence agencies morality does not exist and they will go on instigating K-group to align with any terrorist groups just for the heck of countering the NSCN,” the MIP release added.
