GPRN/NSCN MIP Sunday rubbished the allegations made by NSCN (I-M) ‘kilonser’ V. Horam that it was involved in the killing of “major” Ngachonmi at Namsa, Tizit. Dragging its name in the killing was “utterly disgusting” and “absurd” it stated.
MIP, GPRN/NSCN in a press release said Horam, as a Christian had devalued himself miserably by indulging in an inconceivable lie and said such outrageous accusations could only originate from Hebron camp and from people like him who have nothing but destructive policies. The public in the area were the witnesses and the Assam rifles have clarified that they fired in self defense which killed the victim, MIP stated.
Meanwhile, the MIP said that the killing of Zaremo Odyuo, a civilian worker, at Mekokla in Lotha Region by Hebron campers was also a reminder to the Nagas that there was a group operating in Nagaland who believed that reconciliation and killing must go hand in hand.
Describing the killing as a “deliberate violation” of the Covenant of Reconciliation, the MIP said it was a “murder and not a factional clash” as the group of men attacked an unsuspecting victim who had no intention to cause harm to anyone especially during reconciliation process. The MIP said FNR and all peace loving Nagas may well differentiate between factional clash and non-retaliating victims who were “murdered” in time of peace.
It accused the NSCN (I-M) of employing “blatant accusations, killings and justifications” as tools against the Nagas in the name of Naga political struggle. It said many prominent Naga intellectuals have been killed simply because they chose reason over emotion. Thousands of civilians and national workers have been murdered over the decades accusing them as traitors, it added.
The MIP also said that the greatest challenge for the Nagas today was to understand the ground reality and prepare future course of action towards their inalienable political right in relation to: The dead of the peace talks between NSCN (I-M) and government of India as announced by the Indian home minister in the parliament; the welcome progress and scope of Naga Reconciliation Process spearheaded by the FNR; the groundwork being prepared by a section of people at Hebron camp aiding and abetting demand for alternative political arrangement for Nagas in Manipur state. It was not necessary to elaborate these points as they were self explanatory, the MIP stated.
