Criticizing the 4-point draft submitted to the prime minister Manmohan Singh by Naga civil societies, GPRN/NSCN “kilonser” Y. Wangtin Naga said while Naga civil societies’ appeal to Indian government agencies for release of Naga political prisoners was appreciable, organizing a rally “in support of NSCN (I-M)’s political talk was nothing but re-painting the colour of Naga Hoho and NSCN (I-M) nexus”.
In a statement, he asserted that the Naga “political movement” was a collective issue and therefore no faction could claim to be the mandatory body.
He said no faction was superior than the other and that Nagas could not be part of any group holding talks with the Centre “without unanimity among the Nagas, be it over ground or National political groups”. “Nagas cannot be the part of IM’s talk as longer they continue their hidden business with GoI without unanimity among the Nagas, be it over ground or National political groups,” he stated. Naga independence of 14th August 1947, plebiscite of 1951 and uniqueness of Naga political history and situation were not NSCN (I-M)’s “private properties” as it was the political history of the Nagas which protects their political rights “from occupational forces”, Wangtin said.
Also criticizing a statement made by Naga Hoho president Keviletuo Kiewhuo on SS Khapalang’s identity that appeared in local dailies October 27, he questioned Keviletuo as to when Khaplang refused inclusion in the ongoing dialogue, and from whom he (Keviletuo) learnt that Khaplang was a Myanmar citizen. “Naga Hoho and its officials should not be the confused people,” Wangtin said. He alleged that Nagas of present Nagaland state, particularly advance tribes, betrayed Khaplang and “his people” by accepting “Indian State” through “betrayal” 16-point agreement 1963.
He termed the16-point agreement as a “great blunder” subjected to be political analysis, and said Nagas could have achieved sovereignty by now if Nagas (advance tribe) had not signed the agreement.
While leaders of Nagas of Nagaland forgot their solemn pledge that “neither Nagas of Indian site nor the Nagas of Myanmar occupation should accept imposed states from both the occupational countries,” Khaplang and his people still firmly stood on the pledge, Wangtin added.
