People’s Army of Nagaland GPRN/NSCN has said that it was seeking a pacific approach despite numerous attempts by subversive elements to sabotage the hard-earned peace initiatives and creating unprecedented tensions and apprehensions among the crucial stakeholders of the Covenant of Reconciliation.
‘Maj. Gen.’ Niki Sumi, GPRN/NSCN accused the NSCN (I-M) of taking undue advantage of the prevailing truce and willfully defying the “peace covenant” with all purpose and intent to provoke the Naga Army personnel into conflict. Niki said this has resulted in many of GPRN/NSCN’s activists on peacekeeping duties being arrested, detained, tortured, weapons confiscated and even shot dead. He said bond agreements to abstain from further national service, were also made to sign under duress.
“Had we retaliated with the same murderous passions, the outcome would have been bloody and irreparable but in upkeep of the commitments to peace and reconciliation, pacific approach is being sought after,” Niki said. Further, “to pre-empt such deliberate breach of trust and consequent victimization of our cadres,” the ‘Maj. Gen.’ informed all its unit commanders deployed throughout Naga inhabited areas including regional and civil attaches to be vigilant against any unethical provocation, forceful intrusions and un-resisted capture by NSCN (I-M). He warned that firm disciplinary action would be initiated against responsible commanders/workers if there were loss of any government properties, weapons and cadres. Niki directed the Naga army units not to allow armed movements of the counterparts under their respective jurisdictions without prior information.
The NSCN (I-M) authority was also urged to take heed of the Naga people’s call for peace and honour the “covenant” and accordingly direct their field workers to desist from “further stimulating and counter-productive actions.”
