Reacting to the earlier statement issued by ‘Col’ Zimik of the NSCN(I-M) over the factors leading to the arrest of four GPRN/NSCN activists of its Rengma region, Victs Semy, Region Adminstration Officer (RAO) of the GPRN/NSCN claimed that what actually happened were contradictory to whatever Zimik had stated in his press release. Semy said the entire incidents were due to the designs of the NSCN(I-M) commanding officer ‘Col’.Chinayo Tangkhul and the region’s Central Administrative Officer(CAO) Sinkilo Kath who wanted to control the Rengma region in a dictatorial manner. He said the GPRN/NSCN, had fully cooperated with the declaration of the entire Rengma area as “ a peace zone” as made by the Rengmas and also in tune with the call by the Forum for Naga Reconciliation for unification of Nagas. He alleged that the NSCN(I-M) created tension in the region while the GPRN/NSCN restrained from confrontation. Semy said ‘Col’.Chinayo and CAO Sinkilo Kath “arrested and tortured” Shioto Kath, Political Organiser(PO) on November 9 followed by the arrest and alleged inhuman torture of Puhoto Khing(Razou Peyu),Kulalo Khing(Khapur) and Sohilo Kemp(PTE) on November 18.He said described as ‘false propaganda’ NSCN(I-M) ‘Col’. Zimik’s statement that the GPRN/NSCN regional members were asked to vacate from the vicinity of the NSCN(I-M) designated camp and warned against tax collection, which created tension in the region. According to Semy, the GPRN/NSCN regional members were “20 kms away from the designated camp” and were only “…dispatching the yearly tax letters which the NSCN(I-M) group are also collecting yearly…”. Semy urged the Rengma hoho and frontal organizations to take note of activities of the rival faction who do not “ respect or understand the social ethics of the Rengmas” and trying to break the hard earned reconciliation and unification efforts by the FNR.
