Asserting to reaffirm faith in their leadership, the “GHQ, Naga army” of the NSCN/GPRN (Khaplang) Thursday said it had resolved to stand “firmly and uprightly” after chairman S.S.Khaplang.
A statement of “maj.gen.” Nyemlang Konyak, “general staff officer-I (GSO-I), GHQ, Naga army” NSCN/GPRN Khaplang faction, released by MIP, said the resolution was made during an emergency meeting held June 22, 2011.
Stating that there cannot be two opinions, the GSO-I said “our position is clear and firm. chairman Khaplang was our leader and will always remain the same and we, the Naga Army at the GHQ vow to stand by it till the end.”
Maintaining that chairman Khaplang was “undoubtedly” the most “undisputed Naga leader”, “maj.gen.” Nyemlang Konyak said Khaplang’s “strong will and determination” to see a “liberated Nagaland” and to stand steadfastly for the cause of the Naga people has always kept him “unshakable.”
“He has not only successfully kept the Nagas of eastern Nagaland united but has also jealously safeguard the Naga territory from the marauding other ethnic groups,” the “GSO-I” said.
Asserting that Khaplang has always given equal opportunity to every tribe and community, “maj.gen.” Nyemlang Konyak said Khaplang’s contribution for the “Nation” was invaluable and cannot be questioned. “Nagas must know that, unfortunately today we may be divided in two or three different countries but our country and the rights over our land and territory remains the same,” Nyemlang Konyak said.
Wangtin responds
to ‘expulsion azah’
NSCN/GPRN (Khaplang) “kilonser” Y.Wangtin Naga, responding to “gen.” Khole’s “expulsion azah” on him, Thursday said he “felt so funny” when expulsion azah appeared in papers wherein his name and two other national workers names “appeared to be expelled from their breakaway group.”
Calling “gen.” Khole “my father”, Wangtin said “ (Khole) should realize that something goes wrong with him and his political career. Some forces behind him misplaced him to the extent of never return. Let God mercy prevail” and appealed the “group of people misguiding our great general” not to further “misuse him, let him hold honour and respect till his last breath.”
Wangtin said any “azah/azahs” from “recently break away group” was nothing to do with him or any workers under NSCN (Khaplang) group because, he said at no point of time they have been “either enrolled or inducted in to their fold.” “Still we enjoy our confidence, and services under NSCN/GPRN (Khaplang),” he said, adding “this action shows how frustrated they are.”
NSCN/GPRN (Khaplang) “kilonser” went on to maintain that “rather, any NSCN/GPRN workers irrespective of their ranks and files found involving in the activities of break away group will be expelled from NSCN/GPRN without any reservation.”
Urging Nagas that “such sinister design (s) in Naga society” was not a new thing, Wangtin said: “Let us therefore stand firmly in defence of our genuine cause and not wind blown under the direction may shake our firmness.”
He asserted that NSCN/GPRN under S.S. Khaplang was “still intact” and that “recent crisis” would have no impact on NSCN/GPRN dominancy over entire eastern Nagaland (Myanmar), southern Nagaland (Manipur sector), Tirap-Changlang (Arunachal Pradesh) and present Nagaland.
