In the backdrop of “unconditional” reconciliation and unification of GPRN/NSCN and NNC/FGN on July 15 last at Monyakshu village, Konyak region, under the “Covenant of Reconciliation”, signed by top leaders of Naga political groups, the co-ordination committee has convened a “thanksgiving service” at Vihokhu village, Niuland road on August 5 at 10 a.m.
According to a joint statement issued by GPRN/NSCN’s MIP and NNC/FGN’s “Rali Wali”, the co-ordination committee of GPRN/NSCN and NNC/FGN has appealed to all Nagas, irrespective of party allegiance or affiliation, to “commune together under the Journey of common hope.”
The publicity wings of both said the service was being organized not to celebrate human achievement, but to acknowledge the Grace of Almighty God, “the creator of Nagaland and the sustainer of the Naga people and their history”, and for offering the Naga people “a small measure of understanding” which could sprinkle the Nagas to greater glory.
The joint statement further asserted that “the merger of two political parties is the first answer to the prayer of the Naga people. In a Nation trying to heal itself of steep division and a blood splattered history, only a divine inspiration would urge tolerance and acceptance of all as brothers.”
The MIP and “Rali Wali” jointly said the merger drew strength from the fact that the destiny of the Nagas lay in the hands of God and that without His intervention, the wisdom of humans would always be “found wanting.”
“GPRN/NSCN and NNC/FGN have in their own little capacity, fulfilled what the Nagas asked of them,” they said and added that they were also ready to listen and march forward, without fear, to fulfill the “ardent wish of our forefathers.”
Meanwhile, the co-ordination committee has especially extended its invitation to Forum For Naga Reconciliation (FNR), Naga Hoho and all units, ENPO and its units, JCC and its units, DBs’ and GBs’ Forum, GB federation, Naga Council, Naga Christian Forum, NBCC and its members, NSF and its federating units, ENSA and its units, NPMHR and its units, UNC, NWUM, Non-Naga communities in Nagaland, Senior Citizens, village headmen/village elders, pastors, youth leaders, women leaders etc. The committee has specially requested media fraternity, local and national, both print and electronic, to cover the event.
It may be recalled that the MIP, GPRN/NSCN in its earlier statement had said that the culmination of the unity was a “triumph of the Naga spirit seeking new meaning” to the tumultuous political journey. It said the unity was also a fulfillment of the Naga people’s desire to seek a common approach “based on recognition and entrenchment” of the inalienable rights “to exist as a nation with our own political identity.”
The MIP had described the decision as a “historic moment borne out of the common desire to raise the Naga political issue to higher ground and onto logical conclusion.”
