Condemning the factional clash between the two NSCN factions in Eastern Nagaland, the Eastern Naga Students’ Association (ENSA) has appeal to both the factions to cease all kinds of offensive as the “ugly gun battle” has taken many precious lives.
According to a statement received here Tuesday from ENSA president Michael Kaita many innocent villages were harassed and tortured by both the factions by ordering villagers not move out from their villages even for cultivation.
Expressing its belief that sovereignty did not lie with factional fights, the ENSA said the goal of Naga people’s desire could be achieved only through unity and reconciliation amongst various factions.
The ENSA asserted that it was unfortunate on the part of Naga national workers for displaying their bitterness within Naga family especially in front of innocent Eastern Nagas, who they said were wholeheartedly supporting Naga cause from the beginning of Naga national movement till today.
They, however, maintained that till now eastern Nagas were suffering under the hands of Myanmar army for the sake of Naga cause.
“And now we are suffering even under the hands of our own brothers and sisters and how long it will continue this way,” the eastern Naga students asked.
Further, the ENSA pointed out that Eastern Nagas were already “fed up” of seeing bloodshed, which had spread throughout the land of eastern Nagas.
Recalling Naga national workers were once regarded as one of the “supreme organisation and visionary movement”, the eastern Naga students said: “but now they are just become mere factional movement and has no more vision at all if they were to continue in this manner.”
Also, the ENSA said Eastern Nagas were not happy with Naga family for “playing games of double standard” by maintaining peace and reconciliation in “western Naga area (India)” and declared battle field in Eastern Nagaland (Burma), adding eastern Nagas were still confused whether FNR was for all Nagas.
Questioning FNR why it remained silent if it was for all the Nagas, the eastern Naga students also asked why many Naga NGOs did not voice out against factional fights. “Are we not Nagas?” they queried.
Describing the act of National workers as unfortunate, the ENSA alleged that national workers taking advantage of no media coverage were using extreme methods of firing several rocket launchers in the village vicinity.
Stating that those weapons were poisonous gas which could affect the human health, the ENSA expressed apprehension that those gaseous weapons would kill many villagers after few days, cautioning it would be the responsibility of Naga national workers.
On the other hand, while maintaining that the on going Naga peace talks has already excluded the eastern Nagas “which was officially declared by our Naga leaders,” the ENSA said “it has no right to enter eastern Nagaland before solving the western Naga problems.”
Meanwhile, the eastern Naga students have appealed to all the Naga people for financial assistance and medical aid to those displaced villagers.
