Eastern Naga Students Association (ENSA)said while it was “cautiously” formed with the objective to uplift the education system and social liberation desired to urge “every right thinking Naga people” whoever was in touch with the Naga political issue, to be far sighted and possess inclusive political vision.
ENSA president Michael Kaita and general secretary Y.Khomong Khiamniungnan said Nagas living in present Mynamar “are Nagas not by choice but by right” and not something as wanting to be Nagas.They said they were, are and will be Nagas whether in Burma,India or China.
The signatories asserted that their stand on the “Naga political issue is not negotiable” They said the sufferings of Nagas in Myanmar through religious exploitation,forced labour,ill treatment and human rights violations imposed by the Myanmarese junta “is an impact of our all out support to the Naga issue” .
In view of their sacrifices, ENSA said any attempt to neglect or ignore eastern Nagas at any stage would be –politically a lie against our own peope;humanly a crime against one’s fellow being and theologically a sin against God.
ENSA said when reconciliation was launched as the “latest agenda and the last hope for Nagas in the national movement”spearheaded by the FNR where all Naga NGOs,church and political leaders were involved, there was no official invitation extended for representative from the eastern Nagas to be part of the process, even though eastern Nagas have been logically and morally supporting Naga reconciliation and unity throughout.
In this regard, ENSA requested all responsible leaders to “enlarge their vision and look at all angles” and not to sum up such efforts in some corner since Nagas are not only in Arunachal Pradesh ,Assam and Manipur but Nagaland and Myanmar.
ENSA said it desired that Naga leaders apply the same yardstick “cautiously” since missing out on any group or community at this critical juncture would be “ a greatest mistake in Naga history”.
They said for Nagas in general, the Naga political issue served to remind that it is “multi complex and very sensitive” that “boys of yesterday” cannot take a ride without knowing the genealogical fact which involves “thousands of lives, blood and tears”.
After six decades of struggle for the Naga political movement for self determination, ENSA said eastern Nagas are being ignored and cautioned that they would be compelled to take their own course of action on the stand. “People can no longer take us for granted and never expect the passion of eternity”, they added.
