FGN has accused NSCN (I-M) general secretary, Th. Muivah of violating the Covenant of Reconciliation by way of deploying armed cadres openly in the name of security measures.
FGN deputy secretary MIP, Bendang said while the reconciliation process was going on, Muivah on the other hand was giving more importance to his journey in Nagaland.
Bendang wondered if there could be any hidden designs to derail the reconciliation process. “If there is a wolf in a lamb’s skin lurking among us, we must be careful and avoid ourselves to be its feed,” he added.
Alluding to “a lot of questions” raised by the people on current journey of Muivah in Nagaland, the FGN said what mattered was whether it was an invitation by the people or an imposition of one’s will on the people.
Bendang said it was for Muivah to express himself transparently. FGN held that it was also the concern of the people to understand whether Muivah’s visit was in the true spirit of love, peace and brotherhood or that he has “got some hidden agenda behind the screen.”
“Accidents and tragedies are rare but intentional victimizing of the people are many which Naga way of life might refuse to bury lightly,” FGN said.
The FGN deputy secretary said it was confusing why Muivah, when he is a Naga leader, must seek the permission of the government of India to visit his ancestral home.
“Over and above it, does it befit Naga nationalism to deploy Indian army to be his personal security force even in his very own Nagaland”? the FGN asked.
Bendang said such issues required transparency to remove any harmful doubts that might linger in the minds of the people.
He asserted that without careful study of the matter, many ignorant Nagas would be making themselves “cheerleaders of Muivah’s journey.”
He called for everyone to introspect whether the wound in their body was completely healed or the thorn in their heart was still pricking.
The FGN said its statement was must not be an obstacle to the reconciliation of the Nagas but that there was the need for transparency and frankness to be stressed at this juncture.
The FGN said despite 30 years of mistrust and accusations, hatred and animosity, fratricidal killings and stagnation of Naga national progress, it would be a welcome note if Muivah was sincere to admit where he had been wrong. “If Muivah really meant that he got his political inspiration from the NNC and if he retract his condemnation of A. Z. Phizo, there is no need for further confrontation. The Shillong Accord of 1975, the theme on which partition of the nation was pivoted in 1980, need no longer be a barrier to Naga unity,” FGN statement read. Bendang said each and every Naga was equal and a responsible player in the national cause under the NNC, the institution of the Nagas.
He said the Nagas were eagerly looking forward to permanent peace and tranquility in the land since the signing of the Covenant of Reconciliation by NSCN (I-M) chairman, Isak Chishi Swu, GPRN/NSCN chairman, Khaplang and FGN kedahge Brig (Retd) S. Singnya. The FGN also acknowledged the “selfless efforts” of the FNR through which there was present respite in Nagaland.
