Ahead of the scheduled meeting in Kohima, between Centre’s interlocutor R. S. Pandey and NSCN (I-M) general secretary, Th. Muivah in Kohima, the GPRN/NSCN on Sunday asserted both parties should “clearly understand” that it considered Pandey’s visit as “primarily” to resolve the issue between Manipur government and the Nagas of Manipur state represented by Muivah. A release issued by the MIP of the GPRN/NSCN, said therefore, any issue involving Nagas of Nagaland, Eastern Nagaland and other Naga areas should be “left alone” as it felt that the meeting involved a “localized issue revolving around an individual’s visit to his native village in Manipur.” The MIP said the meeting should not be considered as political talks between government of India and the Nagas in any way.
The GPRN/NSCN expressed hope that the meeting between Pandey and Muivah would restore the “time tested” peaceful co-existence between the Meiteis and Nagas of Manipur to its “rightful position.” The GPRN/NSCN said no matter how much “animosity, hatred and bad blood” between Manipur government and Nagas of Manipur were generated recently, it believed that emotions should not betray sanity and reason. It said Naga inhabited areas in Manipur could not be uprooted and planted in Nagaland state, Assam or Eastern Nagaland. “Meiteis and Nagas of Manipur will continue to co-exist for as long as man walks on earth,” it asserted. Further, the MIP described it as “unwise, impractical and self defeating “ for civil societies, NGOs, intellectuals, community elders etc of talking about severing ties with other communities and added that future generations of Nagas in Manipur must be given a chance to live in peace and harmony with other communities. Considering that age old bond, respect for each others rights, customs, traditions must be maintained, the GPRN/NSCN further said killings, “inflammatory and counterproductive” measures should not be the only route to towards seeking objectives.
