Endorsing the decision of the Sumi Hoho in opposing the proposed visit of Th. Muivah to Pughoboto area under Sumi Region on June 21, the GPRN/NSCN said Muivah’s proposed visit would amount to gross violation of the cease fire ground rules and also a violation of the covenant of reconciliation.
Conveying a message to the government of India and Nagaland state government, the MIP of the GPRN/NSCN, maintained that cease fire “does not authorize Th. Muivah to loiter around Nagaland with heavily armed men”.
It reminded the government of India that provides “heavy security to Th.Muivah” to realise that “ the Sumi Hoho do not solicit his visit to the region” which is GPRN/NSCN administered area.
The MIP said elders of Pughoboto area have given a written undertaking to prevent Muivah’s visit and warned that in the event of “any confrontation resulting from Th.Muivah’s forcible entry into Sumi soil, the Naga Army should not be held responsible”.
Impressing upon all Naga organizations and civil societies that “Th. Muivah’s entry into Sumi soil is never for Naga reconciliation process,” the MIP said for the first time, since the beginning of the ‘Journey of Common Hope’ initiated by the FNR began, “Naga people finally realise the true measure of Mr. Th. Muivah’s call towards reconciling with other Nagas.”
It slammed Muivah for rejecting any reconciliation or meeting with GPRN/NSCN ato kilonser N.Kitovi Zhimomi a few minutes after declaring to media on June 16 “in the name of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, we have proclaimed that there should be reconciliation among the Nagas”
The MIP said that no Naga leader in the history of the Naga political movement has “ever tried to use the name of Jesus Christ as cheaply” and asked what was Muivah’s idea of reconciliation. It asserted “Nagas are wiser now” and that the politics of telling a lie a thousand times to make people believe in it, “does not work anymore.”
On the decision of the Sumi Hoho, the MIP said “Sumis have realized the futility of divisive politics” of Muivah and the decision was a reminder “that every tribe in Nagaland retains its ancestral power and authority derived from the people.”
It said Nagas for centuries question strangers crossing their territory and as per tradition, once visitors were told they were not welcome, no one in his right mind would dare to ignore. It termed as “admirable” that Angamis and Chakhesangs welcomed Muivah into their land “despite the lingering unforgettable past crimes”. For Sumis, it was a different as Nagas would agree that it was impossible for Sumis “to allow the very person who banned the Sumi Hoho”, it said.
It endorsed the decision of the Sumi Hoho “because Th. Muivah by his very declaration, is now a stranger to Sumis” adding the Sumi Hoho decision was “only a reiteration of the age old law of the landowners.”
