Special envoy to the collective leadership of GPRN/NSCN, Kughalu Mulatonu who delivered a short speech during the 30th NSCN Raising Day at Khehoi said the Nagas were not going to give up the demand for sovereignty and that it would be attained sooner or later. Mulatonu, however, called for exercising restrain in the demand for sovereignty saying “if Nagas don’t attain sovereignty and try to claim somebody’s territory that will be tantamount to destroying somebody’s constitution.” “We do not disclaim that the Naga inhabited areas do not belong to us,” he added. He said sovereignty was not a social problem for which the Nagas should not mislead themselves with what they have not created during the past 60 years. He said the split within the NSCN in 1988 was due to personal differences and not political ideological differences as many had thought. Stating that the NSCN was formed after the NNC signed the Shillong Accord, Mulatonu said another political course would take place when the two entities unite. “Whether we unite or disunite, no Naga can say that we don’t deserve sovereignty. The issue lies ahead and will be attained,” Mulatonu affirmed. The special envoy called upon the national workers to take socialism to the villages where their strength lay. Commenting on the ongoing talks between the government of India and the NSCN (I-M), Mulatonu said any outcome of the talks was not going to affect the NSCN as they would never be able to solve the Naga problem even if another 100 rounds of talks were held. He advised the NSCN (I-M) to “solve the problem and not only learn to talk.” He said solution to the Naga political problem lay with the people and under one umbrella – NSCN. Stating that the GPRN/NSCN was awaiting invitation for talks from the government of India, Mulatonu said “when we talk, we will talk for a limited time and wind up either positively or negatively. We will not talk for 60-70 years. We will not play with the sentiments of the people.” Asked to comment on the formation of the Naga National Workers People Support Group (NNWPSG) which has also pledged to work for early Naga reconciliation, Mulatonu queried as to why disunited people should come to Nagaland and brief about unification when there is misunderstanding and disunity in Ukhrul, Tamenglong etc.
