Describing NPCC president S.I. Jamir’s remarks as a “morbid fascination” of the Congress to the NPF, Press Bureau, Central Office of the NPF said the remarks was predictably a “misconception on the entire Naga political issue” and only to please people at the other end. The Bureau said that the NPF strived to pursue the cause for unity and integrity of the Nagas in contiguous area to be under one administrative roof. It asserted this was duly provided by the constitution of the party and “already enshrined” in the constitution of India.
The expansion of the NPF beyond the border of Nagaland was “not an encroachment in our neighbors’ territory” but a matter of only introducing the policy and programmes of the NPF, it said. Further the Bureau said the NPF is a registered and duly recognized regional political party with the Election Commission of India and S.I. Jamir’s utterances blaming NPF for creating enmity were “misinterpretation of fact and distortion of political reality”.
It said any Indian citizen could be a member of the NPF and that the party can be established anywhere in the country. It affirmed that the NPF endeavour was to fulfill aspirations of Nagas to live as one family which no force could divide or stop. It also said NPF has not diluted the Naga political issue and the desire to live as one being its fundamental agenda and therefore, pursuit for political integration “shall be relentless”.
In the light of the “damning statement” such as S.I. Jamir’s recent remarks, the NPF concluded that “NPCC is anti-Naga”. Further, NPF said its “legitimate apprehension” of alleged “cynical politicking of NPCC” has reached a critical state while the irony was that the NPCC leadership was bent on blurring the future of the people. Stating that it now understood the “thin limitation of S.I. Jamir”, NPF said his aim on the Naga political issue was to drag it back to square one “like his predecessor.”
