More than one hundred prayer centres across Nagaland have been praying since the past three days for success of the proposed highest level meeting of the Naga political groups- NSCN/GPRN, GPRN/NSCN and FGN.
As part of the prayer, a special prayer will be held at the “Shisha Hoho” where leaders of the Naga political groups have been requested to attend informed Neingulo Krome, member of the Forum for Naga Reconciliation (FNR) to NEPS here Saturday.
He said the highest level meet could not be held in March this year due spurt of factional clash which prevented Chairman of the GPRN/NSCN SS Khaplang from arriving Nagaland.
FNR members have held a series of meetings with GPRN/NSCN Ato Kilonser N Kitovi Zhimomi and Gen Kholie to speed up the process of holding the “highest level reconciliation meet” by bringing their Chairman (Khaplang).
Krome said the GPRN/NSCN has assured they would bring Khaplang to the meet.
He said the leaders of various underground groups have also been invited to the special prayer meet.
He also disclosed that FNR convener Rev Wati Aier has talked with Khaplang wherein the latter expressed keen desire to attend the highest level meet as and when the situation allowed him to travel. “So we are seriously working as to how this program would be materialized soon,” he added.
On the objective of the meet, Krome said it would depend on the deliberations though the objective was for a continuation of the reconciliation process. “But we leave the matter to the leaders of the Naga political groups as to how they would go about after such highest level meet,” he said. He explained that “Reconciliation is for every human being,” though presently, it was focused on the infighting Naga political groups.
Asked about State Government’s response , the FNR member stated they were not “negative” but hoped it would do more than that.
On DAN Government’s role as a facilitator, Krome said it knew what it could do but hoped political will was needed. Commenting on the remarks made by NSCN/GPRN collective leadership Th Muivah and Isak Chishi Swu that Prime Minister Dr Manmohan Singh was sincere towards finding solution to the Naga issue, Krome felt that the duo must have calculated in making such “remarks” on the basis of this whole year’s peace process. So they meant what they said, he said.
He however was skeptical of the idea of the Government of India that the settlement of the Naga issue would be found by the end of the year.
He said such a statement was good but it only surprised the other faction(GPRN/NSCN) as they were yet to get involved in the process.
When asked if one group could bring settlement to Naga issue, the FNR member pointed out that the main point was they should reconcile and have common approach with collective understanding and mutual trust.
He also said they were happy that the Government of India had realized that by keeping the issue in abeyance in cauldron, it only multiplied problems. So some kind of solution should be hammered out but they still appeared to be lacking courage to do so, he added.
