Responding to the point raised by the Congress Legislature Party which had demanded an answer from the chief minister if he had told a delegation of the Konyak Union that he (CM) was neither going to advise for or against the demand for statehood; the NPF Monday said that the CLP’s statement contradicted with an earlier statement made by NPCC president S.I. Jamir on the same issue.
NPF president, Shurhozelie Liezietsu said while the earlier NPCC statement by S.I. Jamir was well appreciated, the CLP statement was contradictory adding both the NPCC and CLP were expected to have one voice on such sensitive issue. He said that the main objective of the NPF was to work and assist in any manner towards a peaceful solution of the “Indo-Naga” political issue while keeping alive the “relentless endeavour” against any force to further divide the Nagas.
He said the demand for a separate State has become a sensitive issue which was being influenced by the “divide and rule policy” of others from outside. He said, under such a situation, no amount of debate among the Naga people could alter the course, unless Nagas came together to make people understand the ground realities.
Shurhozelie said the NPF believed in the goodness of the Naga people and nobody would agree to any move that would create further division among the Nagas at this juncture when the political turn of events has reached such a crucial stage. While lauding Nagas of eastern Nagaland for their contributions in protecting the Naga political right throughout, Shurhozelie said he believe they will themselves not dismantle it He stressed on the present need for creating understanding among the people so that Nagas could take the right stand together as one body. He cautioned against attempt to use the ENPO demand to impress others and refrain from provoking the situation as a mature response. Calling for patience for healing, he said Nagas would continue to stand together as one body.
