“Integration of all Naga areas is our birthright,” affirmed NSCN (I-M) chairman Isak Chishi Swu on the occasion of 32nd NSCN Raising Day Celebration even as the next round of talks was soon to be held between the NSCN (I-M) and government of India in New Delhi.
Swu, whose message was read out by chief principal secretary NSCN, Samson Jajo at Hebron on Monday stated that it was the duty of every Naga to fight for integration of ‘Nagalim’ at any cost.
He asked how the suffering Naga people could watch helplessly when other people were attempting to disintegrate ‘Nagalim’ into pieces. Swu stated there was no balcony in ‘Nagalim’ from where the Nagas could watch the drama of life but that every Naga was an actor. “Every Naga is expected to participate in our struggle for the integration of Nagalim,” he stated.
The NSCN (I-M) chairman reiterated that he was committed to reconciliation among the Nagas and added that for those who really love ‘Nagalim,’ working for reconciliation was not an impossible task. He asserted that the Nagas would certainly find a meeting point for reconciliation if they were guided by the love for ‘Nagalim’ for Christ.
Swu stated that he had come to Delhi for the third time at the invitation of the prime minister of India for political talks. He thanked the government of India for making necessary arrangement for his safe arrival.
As the two sides were preparing for holding the next round of talks, the NSCN (I-M) chairman sent out a clear message that any proposal which was acceptable to only one party was not for solution. It should always be acceptable and honourable to both the parties, Swu stated. Stating that political negotiation was always for arriving at an honourable agreement, he stated that the NSCN (I-M) was seriously seeking to arrive at an honourable political settlement.
On the occasion of the NSCN Raising Day, Swu saluted all the comrades who have laid down their lives for the national cause. He expressed gratitude to all the international support groups, civil society organisations, and Churches in ‘Nagalim’ and abroad for their priceless support for the Naga cause.
Swu called upon the Nagas to be prepared people for any eventuality adding “prepared people will never be disheartened, for we know that only the prepared people are the people who are destined for victory.”
Atem’s Message: Echoing the chairman’s message, steering committee convener ‘Gen. Rtd.’ VS Atem asserted that the NSCN would not go for a solution or for peace so long as its land and people were kept divided and sub-divided through arbitrary boundaries. Addressing the NSCN functionaries as the chief guest, he said the NSCN also would not compromise on its inalienable right of distinct identity through its “unique history”. (Speech on P-4)
