Constrained by Assam Rifles (AR) alleged action of “aggression” in raiding the “designated camp” of the NSCN (I-M) at Namsa on August 26, the Nagaland Peace Centre (NPC) Saturday pointed out that the AR authority was well aware of the existing ceasefire and the ground rules. “They are also well aware of the ongoing political dialogue between the NSCN (I-M) and the government of India,” said NPC chairman N. Theyo and executive director Lhusi Haralu in a press release. Stating that AR’s “empty claim” of firing in “self defense” did not hold good since they went to the designated camp and carried out the act of aggression and for which NPC said it reflected that the sense of discipline was weak and undermined the authority of the government.
Disappointed at the chairman CFMG, Lt. Gen. (Retd) Mandhata Singh, who was in Jaipur, the NPC said it appeared that Singh did not monitor his responsibility. It further stated that if AR did not know how to apply the brake “then their motto ‘friends of the hill people’ was illusionary.” “It is like breaking up trust and Naga people do not like this kind of dishonest act,” the NPC underscored.
Meanwhile, NPC terming the Mekokla village incident as “unfortunate”, it said the killing of one NSCN (K) cadre by NSCN (I-M) was shameful. Reminding that after so much bloodshed among Nagas, a covenant of reconciliation was signed by “supreme commanders” of various groups, NPC said it was a blunder and insult to the signatories of the respective leaders if such ugly incident continued to surface, adding “how can Nagas live together?”.
