Members of Nagaland Peace Centre (NPC) Kohima mourned the demise of “freedom fighter” Trilok Nath Punwar, who passed away on January 9 at New Delhi. A condolence message issued here by NPC chairman N. Theyo and executive director Lhushi Haralu stated late Punwar was the first person to initiate peace talks in Nagaland between the government of India and the “Federal Government of Nagaland”.
The message also recalled that late Punwar was the only non-Naga who came to Nagaland for peace and reconciliation in 2007 and 2008, and held meetings with factional leaders at Imphal, Dimapur and Kohima to reduce tension when factional conflicts were at its peak. Stating he had been a “true peace maker” who never subscribed to the idea of violence, NPC asserted the demise of late Punwar was an irreparable loss not only to the centre but also to mankind.
