GPRN/NSCN has said that the “consumer friendly statements” of its rival NSCN (I-M) in the last 14 years of talks on Naga sovereignty and solution, was one probable reason why “Naga people, irrespective of status or gender, have allowed themselves to be hunted, even inside their own kitchens”.
Referring to the May 27 attempted assassination on Imtila Jamir, retired registrar of cooperative societies, the outfit’s MIP citing eyewitnesses, said she escaped certain death through “sheer miracle”. Terming the action of the assailants as “utterly demonic and unforgivable” the MIP however, regretted, that the crux of the problem lay in the inability of Nagas in general and organizations in particular, “to point straight finger” at those committing the crime and “ the ones ordering the assassinations in Nagaland.”
MIP maintained that women in Naga custom were accorded highest respect and assassination of women have never been heard. Stating that “Naga history would testify to this fact”, the MIP added “only killers and anti-Naga agents would dare attempt such a heinous crime.”
According to the MIP, the affable personality trait of Nagas which gave advantage to adversaries, has inexplicably “controlled the conscience driven Nagas” in adopting “a defeatist mentality against merciless killers taking shelter in Nagaland.”
Drawing attention to the statement of the Watsü Mungdang Kohima, the MIP said the former named the accused as “Worshim Tangkhul” and his accomplice as only “belonging to a certain underground faction”. MIP said it was unfortunate that the Watsü only managed to generalize all national workers for the assassination while it clearly knew that it “was committed by IM”.
The GPRN/NSCN accused the rival NSCN (I-M) of having wiped out the cream of Naga youth-budding entrepreneurs, social activists and potential Naga leaders, in the early 1990s “mainly in the city of Dimapur and Kohima in the name of controlling crime and anti-social activities.” Later, it said assassination attempts on politicians, bureaucrats and businessmen “became the order of the day.”
GPRN/NSCN said if Naga people minutely observed the course of the crimes committed over the decades, these indicated “sinister plan, a hegemonic agenda being nurtured in the guise of Naga political struggle.”
GPRN/NSCN said it wanted to point out to the Nagas that solution to the “Indo-Naga problem is beyond the reach of IM” citing the demand for “alternative political arrangement” for Nagas of Manipur with the UNC “representing the IM, is for all to see.” MIP concluded that Naga people “must have the courage and will to reject illogical propaganda of the day.”
