Chairman, Lotha Region, GPRN/NSCN, John Lotha has responded to the statement of one Opon H Kyong, “so-called secretary” of Kyong Region published on November 10 terming it as “clearly the utterance of a confused man egged on by a confused group”.
According to the GPRN/NSCN, Peter Lotha, the victim of the “brutal assault” by IM gang at Wokha on October 30 was an “innocent” public and added that the perpetrators of the crime thought he was a GPRN/NSCN National worker.
It also said Peter Lotha cannot be “”smeared in black to justify the “misdeed of the culprits” and went on to add that the real “anti-social, anti-national elements” were the ones who assaulted an innocent public.
“Ignorance of the reality and political degradation, indeed, is becoming more visible through statements issued by men like Opon H Kyong, who is a mere A.S.O”, it said.
GPRN/NSCN further expressed belief in the power of truth and reality for the Naga nation and opined that Lothas had never fallen short of the expectation in the long drawn Indo-Naga political struggle while stating that no one should be alarmed whether Lotha Region Chairman lived at home or a thousand kilometers away.
