Strongly refuting the news report on “likely” visit of its chairman S.S. Khaplang to Nagaland and “likely” meeting with NSNC (I-M) chairman Isak Chishi Swu, the NSCN (K) president’s office Tuesday said there was “no truth in it.” “The chairman, NSCN has not given any consent on meeting Isak,” the spokesperson P.Tikhak said in a communiqué.
Asserting that “Covenant of Reconciliation” was signed based on the historical and political rights of the Nagas, the statement said: “unless if the historical and the political rights are honored there is no question of meeting.” Maintaining that hundreds and thousands of “Naga brothers and sisters”, both armed and un-armed, have lost their life for the “sacred cause of the Naga nation” on the Indian side and an equal number of Nagas on Burmese side, the statement said the supreme sacrifice made “will never be compromised.”
According to the statement Isak and Muivah through their 31 points of charter demand placed before government of India has abandoned the eastern Nagas wherein they purportedly mentioned that: “The eastern part of Nagaland will not form a part of the present peace negotiation.”
In spite of this fact, the NSCN (K) said its chairman went a step ahead and agreed to sign the covenant of reconciliation hoping to bring peace and an end to fratricidal killing.
“But, unfortunately they are continuing their parleys with that same agenda and many more secret agenda in hand; which is not acceptable and hence it is also not possible to reconcile with people, with an ulterior motive,” the statement said.
It affirmed that “sovereignty” was the only solution for the Nagas. “Nothing less than it, was acceptable or will be acceptable for the Nagas,” the statement said, and declared that: “we withdraw all our commitment on reconciliation from those parties who had committed a national crime by selling the sovereign rights of the Nagas to the occupational forces.”
The NSCN (K) also said it was taking “strong exception” on the “term” used by NSCN (I-M) steering committee convenor Atem.
“He might not be aware but, he must know and must also tell his comrades who had fallen and also to those who are alive that, it was the wrong policy of their leaders which were responsible for the crisis,” the NSCN (K) said, adding Khaplang was “an undisputed Naga leader.”
Also, stating that dysentery and malaria was not new to “our people”, the NSCN (K) said: “We live and we die with it. It was there then and it is here even today.”
The NSCN (K) observed that it was these diseases, and Burma being under military rule with a very slim chance of coming to terms, that prompted Isak and Muivah to look for a greener pasture under the Indian democratic system with many constitutional remedies.
