Flag & constitution face of Naga struggle: NSCN (I-M)

NSCN (I-M) has once again reaffirmed its stand on the demand for a separate Naga flag and constitution (yehzabo), asserting that these were the face of Naga political struggle and identity. 

In a statement, NSCN (I-M), through its MIP, asserted that “Naga flag with divine origin cannot be traded or bargained to make the Nagas as infidel people”.
Further, NSCN (I-M) pointed out that the huge burden of Naga political issue that the Government of India (GoI) was struggling to unload was not the making of Naga people, but “deeply rooted in India’s malicious pleasure violating the historical and political rights of the Naga people for more than six decades.” 
Accusing the government of India of starting to indulge in divisive policy and flattery in the name of finding the Naga political solution, NSCN (I-M) alleged that “made in India collaborators” had been planted to confuse and hoodwink the Nagas with typical high sounding promises but having no political commitment to fulfil as done in the past.
NSCN (I-M) said it was however no longer naïve to be carried away by such outrageous flattery, adding that the Naga national flag and constitution were holding up the Naga solution.
“The chequered history of the Indo-Naga political issue is clear enough before us, with accords and agreements that were never meant to be implemented in letter and spirit. Naturally, the Nagas are still haunted by this flamboyant show of dealing on the Naga issue,” the NSCN (I-M) stated.
According to NSCN (I-M), the demonic mask of government of India with ‘post solution’ offer was being brought back to life again as it was desperate to manoeuvreits way to trap the Naga people again to accept whatever was being offered to hurry up the Naga talk. 
The statement mentioned that the bitter lesson of the past was driving away NSCN from giving any face value after seeing through the crafty wickedness of the offer.
Therefore, it said that “NSCN’s stand is loud and clear that it would not follow the forbidden route to the Naga solution that is linked to foregoing the Naga national flag and Constitution which is the face of the Naga political struggle and identity. That would be no better than making comical entity out of the Naga solution.”
