Denying media reports of its involvement in the recent incidents along the Assam-Arunachal Pradesh border,leading to joint operations launched against it, the NSCN(I-M) said thee reports sought to drag its name into different conflicts, armed confrontations including anti-social activities and therefore dismissed them as “false allegations” .
The NSCN(I-M),through its MIP asserted it was a responsible organization, with its own government and system and such false allegations against it was “hypocritic and ridiculous, and it damnably rubbishes such irresponsible acts of those inimical forces towards it.”
Clarifying on the “fighting” that took place between Assam Police and 11th Gurkha Regt. at Kumkuh area on August 20, the MIP said “any blame should not be put on the NSCN for anything that happened in Arunachal Pradesh or anywhere else”.
On the joint operations launched in the Assam by the security forces against it, the NSCN(-M) maintained it was a responsibility and concern of the government of India which was a party to the ceasefire agreement of 1997.
The NSCN (I-M) mentioned that there are countless insurgent groups in the northeast due to what it described as “all round mismanagement of the people in authority for decades together”. The NSCN(I-M) therefore, said blaming it for any incident anywhere was “being prompted by sheer jealousies”.
According to the MIP, the acts were “deliberate insinuations of the NSCN, but the NSCN is not deterred in its march towards its goal.”
Further it asserted that the “troubles or disturbances” in the Assam-Arunachal Pradesh border were the result of border disputes between the two states. The NSCN(I-M) accused Assam of playing a major role in the disturbances due to what was described as having “colonialist and expansionist” agenda as taught by the British. The NSCN(I-M) clarified it had not hand in such activities and added, that it was a matter of great concern that Assam has border disputes with all its neighbouring states.
It went on to allude that the “firing incidents and armed confrontations in Arunachal Pradesh” were due to massive military build-up in the state by the Indian Government “in the fear of Chinese army and Burmese insurgents” and asked “why the NSCN be dragged into such a mess?”
