In an unexpected development pertaining to the planned summit of the highest-level leadership meeting of the Naga political groups, the GPRN/NSCN has decided not to attend the meet scheduled some time between September 18–20, citing violation of the Covenant of Reconciliation by the NSCN (I-M).
P. Tikhak, deputy kilonser GPRN/NSCN (MIP), reminded that the Covenant of Reconciliation was signed at the highest level to pave way for new changes in the Naga political struggle which GPRN/NSCN chairman, S. S. Khaplang personally felt it a necessity, irrespective of group or ideological differences. Therefore, Tihak said, putting aside all differences, however bitter, he (Khaplang) buried it in the name of God and signed the Covenant of Reconciliation prayerfully to let peace and harmony prevail in the land.
In response, “messages were passed to all military headquarters to stop all forms of offensive till further orders were issued and not a single shot has been either fired intentionally or un-intentionally by any of our armed comrades,” Tikhak said.
However, he said despite having signed the Covenant of Reconciliation by NSCN (I-M) chairman, Isak Chishi Swu, its general secretary, Th. Muivah “kept on instigating and killing our cadres violating all limits of the reconciliation process and every other day they will come out with concocted stories.” Tikhak alleged that the same happened with Lt. Ngampang when he was abducted and “killed mercilessly but the NSCN (I-M) denied it and claimed through a press release published in the local dailies, that he (Lt. Ngampang) was very much alive and in their safe custody. However, Tihak said Ngampang “has never been heard of thereafter.”
Tihak recalled the Mekokla incident where one of its Rajapeyu late Zaremo Lotha was killed on August 26, was no different. He said the truth was that another Naga soul precious to all Nagas, was lost and that the reality has to be accepted.
Describing the Tesari Region incident as another episode of “deceit and treachery,” by the rival, Tikhak said taking advantage of the reconciliation process, the “Muivah gang,” befriended with one of its boys and lured him with huge amount of cash provided that he passed all sensitive information.
Tikhak said that on that fateful night, when everybody was asleep and taking advantage of the insider, the NSCN (I-M) activists overpowered the sentry and captured men and weapons. He said the cadres never surrendered to the NSCN (I-M) nor did they go willfully rather, they were betrayed. Tikhak said these incidents raised serious questions about the sincerity and honesty of the NSCN (I-M) leadership. “None of their (NSCN - IM) justification is above the Covenant of Reconciliation,” Tikhak said.
In the light of these incidents, Tihak said it would be “very-very difficult” for any party or group to join hands those who always had “nefarious designs in their mind.”
Tikhak said the FNR had no doubt done a “very wonderful job” and highly appreciated their efforts. However, he said the GPRN/NSCN was “deeply hurt” with new incidents unfolding every day and therefore, the President, GPRN has decided not to send any of its representatives in the September conclave.
