GPRN/NSCN slams summons from SIT

DIMAPUR, JUL 9 (NPN) | Publish Date: 7/9/2020 12:55:46 PM IST

GPRN/NSCN has termed as “unacceptable” the summoning of its top functionary by Nagaland police SIT branch adding the move “appeared to be ill motivated and uninformed.”

GRPN/NSCN through its MIP demanded to know what crime was committed by its leader ? It asked “Did he kill or order killing of elected members? bureaucrats or high ranking police officers? Local or mainland businessmen?” 

MIP said it was “flabbergasted” that SIT was “barking at a wrong tree”, which it said was “most unpleasant.”

MIP has urged the Nagaland police to understand that “Indo-Naga” political conflict was “a legacy of blood and tears on the Naga side.” It said that equating “genuine Naga revolutionary leaders and workers” with “social parasites like government looters, swindlers, petty thieves, criminal gangs, street thugs, market goons and self aggrandising godfathers to illegal immigrants” would not only be socially and politically disastrous, but it would also “equally hasten the death of Naga conscience.”

Stating that there was a ceasefire between Government of India and GPRN/NSCN, the MIP said ceasefire mechanism was in place and all conflicting ground rules issues were tackled at a CFMG meeting headed by chairman. “Clearly summoning Naga revolutionary leaders to a police table is unprecedented and is never agreeable,” MIP stated.

Further, MIP said that sustenance of a political movement for over seventy years was never done through abominable word called “extortion”. “It is a people’s ready contribution, desirous of an assured honourable political future that GPRN/NSCN, as equal member of WC, NNPGs, is negotiating with GOI,” MIP added.

Therefore, MIP cautioned that whoever ordered the physical presence of the Naga revolutionary leader on July 7, 2020, “will live with stigma down to his off springs.”  It also questioned whether there was a deliberate ploy of Nagaland police SIT “to demean, devalue and muddy the water” when both WC, NNPGs and Government of India were “on the verge of announcing honourable and acceptable political solution?”

MIP said there would be troubling questions when police force indulge in “gangster behaviour in the streets and in office table.” It claimed that the “cold blooded murder” in broad daylight of one alleged extortionist in Kohima on June 23, 2020 and the summon letter served on senior GPRN/NSCN leader by SIT branch bore testimony. “The Kohima incident is a clear case of murder by police in front of bystanders and yet the killer is being shielded,” MIP alleged.

In any unresolved political conflict, MIP said there would be “a rippling effect on the people socially and economically even in peace time and naturally Nagas are no different.” 

MIP underscored that it clearly was a period to exhibit utmost restraint, engage in constructive dialogue between police force, administration and “Naga revolutionary members” through ceasefire mechanism.
