The two factions of the NSCN drew attention to recent media reports about top NSCN(I-M) leaders lobbying for the Naga cause abroad. While the GPRN/NSCN attacked the NSCN(I-M), the latter has expressed ignorance of any such move. The Publicity cell of the GPRN/NSCN has said that the NSCN (I-M) lobbying in foreign lands has become a “good joke” and that it was akin to haphazard doctors seeking medicines abroad without diagnosing the ailment of the patients at home. It pointed out that a thousand Naga national workers abandoned NSCN (I-M) in late 2007 since the latter pursued the right of the Nagas without consulting them. The GPRN/NSCN said the ailment of the Nagas got “chronic” as Th. Muivah chased his “rigid dreams.” It pointed out that the crying need of all Nagas in the 1990s and in the new millennium was to forge a common platform. The GPRN/NSCN said the unity of the Nagas was only a handshake away but that Muivah completely missed the opportunity. It accused the NSCN (I-M) of employing every “anti-Naga trick” to blackmail the Nagas. GPRN/NSCN also directed the “so-called MIP” of NSCN (I-M) to convey to Th. Muivah that Nagas have risen from their slumber and were now ready to defend the Naga people against destructive their politics.(full text on page 4) Reacting to reports on lobbying in the media, the NSCN (I-M) through its MIP said it was not aware of the recent press article of the its leaders going to elsewhere foreign countries to lobby for the Naga cause except for the purpose of attending meeting with the Indian government delegation on the ongoing peace process. The MIP said it was the “only authentic organ” of the NSCN (I-M) that disseminates information to the media.
