GPRN/NSCN has accused the Naga Hoho of “throwing flaming balls into the neighborhood in accordance to the script written by Mr.Th.Muivah” while regretting that, as an apex body, the Hoho belied expectations of Nagas to display maturity and elderly wisdom.
Further the GPRN/NSCN in a statement by its MIP, said that the Naga hoho “in the truest sense” comprised of only less than half of the Naga tribes in Nagaland state. It said the Hoho was also answerable to the ENPO and other non-affiliated tribes in Nagaland and other states, for stirring up “unjustified anger over a tiny issue, tarnishing the image of Nagas in the eyes of the neighbors and Naga well wishers across the globe.”
The GPRN/NSCN also castigated the Naga Hoho for press statements which it said, had “created wider rift among the Nagas and also created much apprehension in the neighboring states.” It pointed to the May 9 issue in the local papers where the Hoho’s statement was published under the headline “Manipur government’s open declaration of war against the Nagas.” Commenting on the Hoho statement, the GPRN/NSCN said “only a group of men having hidden agenda would attempt to whip up people’s sentiments and emotion so suit their own interest”.
While saying it was unfortunate that precious lives were lost (on May 6), the GPRN/NSCN said instead of “declaring vengeance against Manipur state on behalf of the Naga people”, the Hoho should have calmed down and see what had “transpired preceding the incident.” It asked, if Manipur government has accused Muivah of “committing heinous crimes” in Manipur, did it merit that the Hoho “unilaterally declared war on behalf of all Nagas against Manipur state?”
The GPRN/NSCN further asked the Hoho whether it would not have been wiser on its part to “first investigate, whether the accusations against Th.Muivah are fabricated or factually true?”
It said all leading Naga and Manipuri organistions “must realise that a man’s entry or exit from his native village is not worth a battle, let alone war” , adding what the Nagas want the Hoho to do was to let “the father and son solve their own domestic issue.”
Further, the GPRN/NSCN said in the event of Manipur state resorting to violence against Nagas, the Naga Hoho general secretary and speaker “should bear full responsibility” for this consequence.It also expressed shock at the Hoho’s “gratitude” to the JWG for supporting Muivah’s visit to his native village and termed the hoho’s statement as “highly illogical, utterly twisted, unbecoming of a regarded platform.” (more on page-4)
