With life saving medicines feared to run out of stock in the next few weeks after the transporters refused to bring goods to the state owing to extortion demand served to them by a Naga underground faction, the GPRN/NSCN on Monday alleged the NSCN (I-M) to be behind the extortion demand. Last week, medical dealers said that almost 50 % medicines have run out of stock in the state and that they would be compelled to down shutters due to non-availability of medicines, if the crisis was not resolved soon. Publicity cell of the GPRN/NSCN in a statement accused the NSCN (I-M) of initiating another agenda to choke the Nagas via destabilization of medical supplies to the state and added that only an organization which thrives on duplicity and provocation of the Naga society would indulge in cutting off supply of life-saving drugs meant for Naga people. “Extortion by NSCN (I-M) on medicine dealers has become so fierce that dealers are simply forced to close their shops,” the publicity cell said. The GPRN/NSCN said that the NSCN (-M) resorting to weakening the Nagas society by ensuring that more Nagas were killed for lack of medicines was “politics in its ugliest form.” “A new game plan of NSCN (I-M) gang has correctly been unearthed,” the GPRN/NSCN added.
