The Forum for Naga Reconciliation (FNR) which has been spearheading the Naga reconciliation process since March 2008 has expressed hopes that the common journey of reconciliation was reaching its destination. “We foresee that moment,” the FNR asserted adding that it had never wavered from its commitment to the Naga reconciliation efforts despite many human limitations. Stating that the desire and hope of the people living in “Naga-Land” was reconciliation, unity, peace leading to a Naga Political solution, the FNR in a press statement said it had sustained the reconciliation efforts with the encouragement and support of all the apex Naga and non-Naga organizations, including the state government. The FNR reiterated that it was not the only body working for Naga reconciliation and recognized other organizations like the Naga Hoho, tribal bodies, GB’s and DB’s, Political Affairs Committee, the Church, Mothers’ organizations, senior citizens, student bodies and more as also working for Naga reconciliation. The Forum said it was only one among the many organizations to be engaged with Naga reconciliation. It attributed its achievement, if any, to the encouragement and prayers of people longing for a common cause and added it remained ever grateful top them. By the same token, the FNR said all the “Naga Political Groups” and “The Naga National workers’ People Support Group” have been very supportive to Naga Reconciliation. It urged the public to understand that, despite, many difficulties, the two mentioned groups have made concerted efforts for the people to witness the de-escalation of killings and violence in the state. It appealed to all to render them every support and cooperation. Pointing out that the job before them was challenging, the FNR said “we must also admit that we have often been un-sensitive to the Naga National Workers.” It felt that the time had come for the people to be more constructive and reassuring to the Naga national leaders and their rank and file for their commitment to Naga reconciliation. The Forum for Naga Reconciliation also reassured all the Naga political groups that reconciliation was for all and that “nobody will be left out.” It requested the Naga national groups to understand the difficulties of the reconciliation process. The Forum said it would continue to be engaged in making the “Covenant of Reconciliation” inclusive and added that it was already headed in that direction. As a step towards that direction, the FNR informed that it was organizing a meeting with Naga Hoho, tribal hohos, GB and DBs, various councils and associations, churches, Naga civil society organizations and Naga political groups on August 26, at the Hotel Saramati, Dimapur from 9:30am onwards. The Forum for Naga Reconciliation has requested the mentioned organizations and other Naga civil society organizations to delegate two representatives each for the meeting. The Forum appealed to all not to be confused or be led by the perceptions alone but rise up above petty ambitions and biased calculations. The FNR also called for commitment to the Naga Reconciliation and political settlement.
