‘Home comers’ numbering 38 along with arms and ammunitions were felicitated on the sideline of the ‘yaruiwo of Nagalim’, Isak Chishi Swu briefing on March 4.
On the eve of departure for Delhi for another round of Indo-Naga peace talks, ‘yaruiwo of Nagalim’, Isak Chishi Swu convened joint council meeting at Hebron on March 4 and briefed on the present status of the talks. The ‘yaruiwo’ expressed positive outcome in the ensuing talks.
The ‘yaruiwo’ urged the home authorities to encourage one another and build up better co-ordination among themselves. He also cautioned the members to firmly shoulder the responsibilities placed on each one. While stressing on the need for total commitment of the national workers to God, he quoted St. John 8:32 “And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall set you free”.
Delivering the welcome address, Rh. Raising, ‘Kilo Kilonser’ expressed happiness for the right step taken by them and said “to err is human but to rectify one’s mistake is wisdom”. The ‘Kilo Kilonser’ assured the home comers that as long as one professed its faith, one nation and one principle, ‘no force on earth can divide us’.
Speaking on behalf of the home comers, Kiyekhu Awomi, member NPAC said “We do admit our misadventure as we were misinformed and misled’ while Kitovi said that there was no agenda for political talks with the government of India and Naga Reconciliation.
“In Khaplang’s Kehoi Camp we see no future, no political vision and no system of governance” said Keyekhu while adding that they only indulged in amassing wealth for individuals. He also justified that with no future prospect for “Naga Nation”, he along with others left Khehoi camp and had come to serve the “Nation” under the leadership of chairman Isak Chishi Swu and general secretary Th. Muivah. Shikato Chishi Swu, Kilonser Law & Justice and Qhehoshi Chishi Swu, deputy Kilonser NSW also spoke at the programme. Earlier, Rev. A. Puni, V/P CNC pronounced the special blessing prayer for the ‘home comers’.
