The GPRN/NSCN (I-M) today described India as the “worst liar in the world” when it claimed that is was sincere in resolving the “Indo-Naga political problem” and on the other hand stating that the demand for “sovereignty and integration of Naga inhabited areas is not negotiable”.
Kilo Kilonser of GPRN/ NSCN (I-M), Keditsü Tsuzüh said this while addressing the NSCN (I-M) Angami Region annual conference cum- pre-Christmas celebration under the theme “Look forward” held at the Mengujuma village ground, about 5 kms away NH 39 from Lalmati here Saturday.
Keditsü said that there is no certainty on when the next round of talks would be held but at the same time he told the national workers and the general public not to lose heart but to look forward with hope. On the other hand, he revealed that there would be a major reshuffle in NSCN (I-M) set up by March next year. However he did not elaborate further on the issue.
Kedustu also asserted that Kohima is the capital city of not only the Angamis or Nagaland state but belongs to the Nagas as a whole; and called upon the NSCN (I-M) Angami region as true national workers to check all the anti-social elements and illegal activities and maintain peaceful environment. He cautioned that while dealing with such elements, it should not use force but to be considerate and respect fellow human being. He also said that if any wrong had been committed in the past, it should never be repeated. National worker is beyond our thought, he added.
He reminded the national workers to teach and guide the people and not to allow anybody to have free hand to do whatever one likes such as extortion which brings bad name to the government. In this regard, he stressed the need for respecting oneself first and not to misuse one’s authority. “Leadership is a gift of God”, he added.
Further, he went on to remind that there are two things in life; the right choice and the wrong choice. Right choice always ends with happiness and success while the wrong choice includes hurting people and disrespecting people. He also urged the people of all sex and age to go for the right choice in their life.
