Reacting to what was described as “misleading utterances” by Nagaland state political leaders “on the current Indo-Naga political issue”, the NSCN (I-M), through its MIP said there was need for “serious correction lest the sensitive Naga issue is exploited to serve the interest of the enemies”. Alleging that India was making a desperate attempt “to downgrade the Naga issue to something of development problem”, the NSCN (I-M) asserted it stood alerted to “this under current game plan.” Stating that “lakhs of Nagas died sacrificing their lives for the political cause of the Naga nation”, the NSCN(I-M) said this “cannot be simply wished away just to keep the New Delhi bosses in good humour” adding “what greater act of cheating the Naga people-living or dead.” Further, it said the issue was “going to be treacherous in any sense of the term” and lamented that political leaders of every hue were “shouting for Naga solution within the parameter of the Indian constitution”. It said that for Nagas “history was a living testimony of the Naga political struggle which could not be distorted or diluted under the pressure of any situation” and neither could it be blotted by India or Burma that the Nagas declared their independence on August 14, 1947. The NSCN (I-M) also said its joint council meeting had examined the “wise statements” of the MLAs in Nagaland including that of the NPCC president, K.V. Pusa. “Who is K.V.Pusa to speak on behalf of the Naga people on solution of the Naga political issue under the Indian constitution?” the NSCN (I-M) asked. The MIP statement said there was no room for doubt that the state politicians were agents of Indianization. It was also stated that the voices of such politicians would ‘never’ go down with the people even if they spoke with an angelic voice. The NSCN (I-M) was also irked by statement of the political leaders who had the audacity to say that “no group enjoys the mandate of the entire Nagas.” It regarded the statement as simply to show reckless disregard of the recent historical reality. “More than that, this is the reflection of their ill-conceived program on Naga solution at the behest of their Indian masters and nothing else,” the MIP statement added. It asserted that faithful soldiers of India would always speak of Naga solution with strong leaning towards protecting Indian interest at the cost of Naga political issue. “So to speak the truth they are just agents of the Indian colonial power,” the MIP said. It was pointed out that the NSCN (I-M) and the government of India have been holding talks for the last 12 years without any condition. “But who give KV Pusa the mandate to speak for the Naga solution under the Indian constitution?” the NSCN (I-M) questioned again.

The NSCN (I-M) said that the Naga people have never mandated any organization, party or individuals at any point of time to talk on the Naga national issue at the cost of that principle or barter the political issue for development fund. “Let no Naga walk into the forbidden zone where even Angels fear to tread,” it yearned. The NSCN (I-M) said history would speak whether the Shillong Accord was a covenant of freedom and capitulation and whether it was the will of the Naga people or that of the Indians. It went on to say that history would also speak whether “Kitovi-Mulatonu group” and others were mandated by the people or self-proclaimed. “The whole world knows they are being sheltered and financed by the enemies of the people. Can traitors represent the people?” the MIP statement added.
