NSCN (I-M) Saturday held a consultative meeting with Naga civil societies at Kilha Panchayat,Viswema village in, what it described, as “keeping with need of the hour to face present situation created by the Manipur state government against the Nagas.”
According to the MIP/GPRN from Viswema, the meeting, chaired by its “ato kilonser” Th.Muivah focused on how to face the situation and solve the problem that had been “forced on the Nagas by the Manipur state government”, and on how the union government “connived” with Ibobi government against the Nagas.
According to the MIP, Th.Muivah who addressed the meeting told members of the Naga civil societies “ if you don’t stand your ground for your right, you are a lost nation.” .
“I believe we have a bright future and we have to work towards that goal,” said Muivah and posed a challenge before Naga representatives, stating “if you want to do something for the Nagas, do it now”.
The focal point of the meeting, according to MIP gave clear indication that “Naga-Naga relation is as good as close and there is no meeting point whatsoever.”
It also said that all those who attended made a commitment to contribute “all their might” and “never to waver under any circumstances until and unless” the Naga problem was solved.
The house also vowed to stand the ground and not to succumb under pressure “come what may”, it said .
Further, the MIP statement also revealed that the meeting also reiterated the stand that destiny of the Nagas lay with the Nagas and that Meiteis have nothing to do with it.
The common opinion of the Naga civil societies, according to MIP was: “what has happen to the Nagas under the chauvinist Meiteis had driven the Nagas to the point of no return, and the Nagas are not wrong to take this stand”.
The Naga civil societies, which attended the consultative meet included Naga Hoho, NSF, NMA, ENPO, NPMHR, UNC, NWUM, ANSAM, Senapati district students’ association, Mao students’ union, Poumai Students’ Union, Naga Ex-Parliamentarians’ Forum, Elders of Viswema village, Coordination Committee of Naga Civil Societies and NPMHR (Manipur sector).
Meanwhile, the MIP stated that the Eastern Nagaland People’s Organisation (ENPO), represented by its vice president, had told the meeting that ENPO “very much” understood the problem of the Southern Nagas, though they could not do much to reach out to them.
Further, it said the ENPO representative, clarified that ENPO had given full support to the ongoing “Indo-Naga Peace process” during the 4th Naga Consultative Meeting held at Hebron in 2004.
“He also expressed displeasure against the Khihoi camp for using its name without its knowledge and approval,and therefore, not to have anything with such statement against its name,” MIP stated.
