Rejecting Nagaland chief minister Neiphiu Rio’s allegation that NSCN (I-M) has been maintaining links with extremist groups such as HuJI and other criminal elements, the NSCN (I-M) Thursday said his statement was “malicious and shocking to all the Nagas beyond imagination.” “The NSCN has no relation at all with HuJI or any terrorist organization at any point of time,” NSCN (I-M) steering committee convenor Qhevihe Chishi Swu and kilo kilonser Kediitsu Tsuzuh said in a joint press statement. The signatories further asked the chief minister to substantiate his “wild allegations” against the NSCN (I-M) of having “clandestine relation” with HuJI. “It is politically unthinkable that Mr. Rio will take such a sadistic pleasure to criticize and damage the reputation and credibility of NSCN,” the NSCN (I-M) joint council of steering committee and cabinet said. The NSCN (I-M) also cautioned that it would not allow anyone in any position to go scot free when he deliberately chose to go “headlong to defile the political image of NSCN.” Further, denying that it has any relation with HuJI or any terrorist organization at any point of time, the NSCN (I-M) said “Wild allegation leveled against NSCN for having contact with Azad alias Robin has no iota of truth.” In fact, it alleged that Azad was a close associate of rival faction, who had even gone to the extent of launching joint operation with the “Khehoi Campers against NSCN.” Also, alleging that his relation with Assam Rifles and Intelligence Agencies was a matter of “established fact”, the NSCN (I-M) recalled Azad was killed by Indian security forces in Imphal “for the reason best known to all.” (Full text on page-4)
