NSCN (I-M) general secretary, Th. Muivah has extended “deep appreciation” to the Chakhesang people under the leadership of the Chakhesang Public Organization for the warmth and openness with which they have welcomed him and his team in their “beautiful” Pfutsero town.
Muivah in a message described the contribution of the Chakhesang people to the national cause as “undoubtedly unique” and said he can assure the fact from his personal testimony. “Your people from every nook and cranny of your land gave us protection and sustained us during the hard days of our struggle. Not even a single day we went hungry and not even a single village failed us. Why I am here today bears testimony to your sincerity and honesty towards the Naga cause,” Muivah said.
He said various pressing issues that confronted the Nagas entailed an urgent need for an open and honest dialogue. Muivah said, “We have come to your land to have a better understanding because the time has come for us to decide our future together again.”
Muivah acknowledged that the decisions taken by the elders and leaders in the Naga National Council, when the history of the world was turning and the imperialist forces were retreating, were “firm and right.”
Reminding about the 1929 memorandum to the Simon Commission, the 1951 plebiscite, August 14, 1947 declaration of Naga independence and other national decisions, Muivah said Naga people’s right of self-determination was salvaged by these historical decisions.
“We will accept only an honourable and negotiated political settlement and in the event of final political settlement we will seek your understanding and we will come to you,” Muivah said. (Muivah’s appreciation letter to Pfutseromi village on page-4 )
