NSCN (I-M) general secretary, Th. Muivah, on behalf his organization thanked the Angami Public Organisation (APO) for organizing public interaction on “Naga political journey”
Stating that Nagas were fortunate to have people who understood “the change of season”, Muivah said Naga National Council (NNC) and its leaders including AZ. Phizo, Imkongmeren, T. Sakhrei, Whenha, Kughato Sukhai, Khodao Yanthan and others were sufficiently aware of inevitable changes that might possibly overtake the Nagas.
There was no doubt that they took the right decision and “saved the Naga nation” when several other nations submerged on account of failing to take the right stand, he added.
Muviah also said there was no other foundation for Naga nation apart from historic stands and that any agreement or accord which did not have the mandate of the Naga people can not claim to represent Naga people’s aspiration.
He reiterated “we are for reconciliation amongst Nagas” and stated reconciliation must be worked out on a realistic line respecting the sovereign aspiration of the Naga people.
He also asserted that thus, reconciliation should first be made in the name of God, which could be achieved through faith in Christ and stated that it signified the people’s respect for the Naga national motto of “Nagaland for Christ”.
Muivah also said reconciliation should take the political approach with the people respecting the “unique history of the Nagas” which, he stated, was officially recognized by the government of India at the Amsterdam Joint Communiqué of July 11, 2002.
In his message, Muviah also said it was a great honour for him and his organization to pay respect to departed leader A.Z. Phizo, and described Phizo as one of the “guiding star of the nation.”
“We attribute eternal glory to president A.Z. Phizo and all the other leaders,” he said.
Lauding the Angami community, Muivah said their contribution to the cause was indeed historic, while adding that it however, must be sustained through strong resolve based on the Naga national stand and further maintained that an opportune moment has come for all Nagas to stand together.
