GPRN/NSCN on Saturday organized a formal reception for 50 members of the erstwhile Naga National Workers People's Support Group (NNWPSG) at its designated camp Khehoi.
According to the MIP GPRN/NSCN, its 'ato kilonser,' N. Kitovi Zhimomi expressed "great happiness" and conveyed revolutionary salute to the national workers which also consisted of representatives from NNC and FGN. He said it was Jehova's grace that protected the Naga patriots during the difficult times and enabled the Naga national workers to come together in such a manner.
Stating that humans were powerless against the coming and going of Winter or Summer seasons, Kitovi said similarly, Nagas cannot postpone or hasten God's plan. He pointed out that Nagas have tasted bitter years and that it was now time to find peace within themselves and find a solution to the problems between the Nagas and their neighbors. "Nagas need not search for peace in foreign lands because peace could be had here right in our beloved Nagaland," Kitovi said according to the MIP.
The 'ato kilonser' also said that since the NNWPSG no longer existed it was time for every patriot to work for the glory of the Nagas. He cautioned the gathering against the ploy of satan who in the form of humans would create several hurdles to sabotage the Nagas' quest for peace and reminded that even Christ, the Son of God was condemned and crucified on the cross.
"Differences among the Nagas did not and will not originate from Heaven but it is created from the preconceived minds and the actions of the wise leaders and it is the duty of every Naga patriot to guard himself/herself against people who sow seeds of disunity," Kitovi exhorted the gathering. He said nothing was impossible with God however difficult the road might be.
The MIP said that the Convener of the erstwhile NNWPSG, L. D. John also expressed "great happiness" at the coming together of different Naga groups and expressed hope that it would strengthen Naga unity. Stating that it was the will of God that Nagas should unite, John praised God and declared that since coming out of NSCN (I-M) three years earlier, NNWPSG did not fire a single bullet and that none of its members were injured.
He said the erstwhile believed that Nagas should march ahead in true nationalistic spirit and that GPRN/NSCN was always at hand to encourage and promote national spirit. According to the MIP, John also felt that Khehoi camp was never a factional camp but a starting point for the Naga patriots to march ahead. He said Nagas must establish and strengthen Naga unity from this very place. Referring to Psalm 127, John pointed out that Nagas could defend their right only if God interceded. The MIP also said John cautioned that it was not fools who were destroying the Naga nation today but it was the men with wisdom who were tearing the Nagas apart. In such an hour it is upto the National workers to work under the guidance of the Lord, he added.
Others who spoke on the occasion included Vitoi Aye, secretary. National Political Advisory Council (NPAC), Hevukhu Yeptho, speaker Tatar Hoho and Hothrong Yimchunger, 'kilo kilonser' the MIP stated.
GPRN/NSCN refutes
Reacting to the statement issued by NSCN (I-M) 'Col.' Levi Zimik mentioning about NNWPSG commander joining their group at Senapati, the MIP GPRN/NSCN said that 'Major' Z.D Akho, the military Commander of the erstwhile NNWPSG was among the 50 Naga patriots who proudly attended the welcome ceremony organized by GPRN/NSCN at council camp Khehoi. It said that the publication by Zimik was an "immature statement bereft of truth" and a violation of a military code of conduct. Further, the GPRN/NSCN said inventing and inserting lines supposedly spoken by the NNWPSG commander was "dubious, unbecoming of a high ranking military officer." "Indeed the statement is indicative of the unethical propaganda machinery that thrives on distortion of facts," it added.
