Yung Aung-led NSCN (K) has extended it support to the mass agitation against the Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA) in the North East. NSCN (K) said the bill would legalise and escalate the influx of illegal immigrants from neighbouring countries and dramatically change the demography of the region.

Talking to News18 from an undisclosed location, ‘lt. col.’ Joseph Lamkam of NSCN (K) said, “As much as we opposed India’s hegemony over the Naga country, we opposed all its policies and laws imposed on our people. Some of our elected Naga politicians has blindly supported the Bill without even consulting the people they represent. They are exposing their political immaturity and shortsightedness. 

They had lost their credibility as elected leaders by trusting too much in the Narendra Modi government. They owe an explanation to the Naga people for their decisions.”

“The NSCN, being the legitimate torch-bearer of the Naga struggle will go any length to defend our right, our land and our people, and to implement that, the Naga army and its combat units are duty-bound and capable of striking anywhere and anytime,” Lamkam said.

“The Indian government’s policy is to subjugate the northeast region and wipe out our joint freedom struggle. Unless we are completely sovereign, we will cease to exist as people. The present laws will not protect our land, our identity and right to live as free and honourable people.”

Lamkam also appreciated the stand of Nagas and other people of the region to come together and denounce the citizenship Act. “This Bill was specially amended to sideline and target individuals based on religious grounds which implies that Indian secularism is slowly dying,” he added.
