Vehemently condemning the pre-dawn raid conducted by the 16 Assam Rifles on its cadres at Kohima at 3 a.m. on January 9, the GPRN/NSCN has demanded the immediate release of the cadres along with all the weapons seized. According to the MIP of the GPRN/NSCN the cadres had decided to rest for the night in Kohima while on their way to their respective units after visiting their families during the festive season.. Terming the action of the AR as a show of “bravado” the MIP said it was a “serious error of judgment”. The GPRN/NSCN claimed that on January 6 during the Ceasefire Supervisory Board (CFSB), both sides agreed that the CFSB members would first be informed in case of any report of CF ground rules violation by any party. The MIP said that in view of the agreement at the meeting, the “unilateral action” (pre-dawn raid) on the part of Assam Rifles was “unjustified.” Further it said the raid conducted upon a party that adhered to the CF during peaceful atmosphere was a “provocative exercise” against the backdrop of all conflicting parties having committed themselves to avoid confrontations in the absence of very little or no offensive intentions. The MIP said the CF between two entities cannot be snapped because of the “irresponsible behavior” of the Para-military forces. Admitting possible “negligible stray moments” by its cadres, the MIP said that the GPRN/NSCN on its part had tried its best to maintain CF ground rules in letter and spirit and demanded that the same must be exhibited by the rest. The MIP further ridiculed the AR’s slogan of it being the “friends of the hill people” as it had time and again, created situations to constantly remind the Nagas that they were “aliens who represent occupational forces in Nagaland.” Stating that the hilly people who were different did not belong to the AR, the GPRN/NSCN added “The hand of friendship can either be accepted or declined by the Hilly People and it’s the latter.” It called for Assam Rifles to invoke wisdom and discerning power rather than act like robots going all out to destroy the hard peace in Nagaland. “Accommodative spirit is best exhibited to the Naga people lest the slogan becomes ‘Enemies of the Hill People’,” the GPRN/NSCN added.
