 It has become paramount to enlighten the Naga people about the bigotry and deceit of Yonghong led NCA group lest our ignorance condemns us to participate blindly in the falsehood. On all account, the Pangmi rebels has relinquished the Naga Sovereign rights by ceding to Myanmar Union consequent of signing the NCA.In the month of June 2018, the delegation of rebels led by Kilonser and Chairman of Cease-fire Committee Ankan Pangmi reached Nyapidaw and signed the NCA pact with the Central Authority of Myanmar Government.The NCA stipulates that the signatories of the pact cannot under any circumstances secede from the Myanmar Union, the demand for independence hence cannot be discussed.

 It further specifies that any dialogue or settlement shall purely be within the bounds of Myanmar constitution and limited to delegation of powers within Myanmar Federation i,e a federal state of Myanmar.Accordingly, the NCA signatories shall also be entitled to economic and developmental packages from the Myanmar Government provided that the signatories fully endorses the central authority of Myanmar Government over it’s territories and people.It is therefore a brazen act to claim to be still fighting for Naga sovereignty when they have already surrendered to Myanmar Union.The NCA group led by Pangmi renegades must undergo a serious retrospection before accusing others of racist and divisive policies. 

The pangmi workers ever since the formation of NSCN had always been resentful of the NSCN leadership by the West Nagas, their inherent timidity, shortsightedness and narrow tribalism had always been the bone of contention that resulted in the successive splits of NSCN and recurring fratricides.Despite having been sustained solely by the resources pooled from the West Nagaland, the Pangmi workers were extremely covetous and never allowed the West Nagas to spearhead the Naga struggle, their envy and dubious nature induced them to expel the West Nagas from their inhabited areas for the fourth time during the 38 years of NSCN existence.

If we were Niki Sumi, we would rather cower in shame and maintain dignified silence instead of exposing his ignorance. Doesn’t Mr.Niki know the content of NCA and it’s implication?What does he intend to say by claiming to be fighting against Myanmar and India for Naga Sovereignty?Since the abrogation of ceasefire with GOI, Mr.Niki with the tax and extortion money raised from Nagaland through Akaho Zhimomi has engrossed himself in running Gold and jade mining in Taka valley and around ten Sumi cadres following him are wholly employed in the mining venture. Some cadres are made to dig for Jade in Mecham village with crude implements for days and nights in the manner of running a slave labour. Not a single battle against Indian forces has ever be directed or managed by Niki so far, instead with huge tax money and profits derived from mining venture, he has invested in real estates at Khamti and Lahe townships and the rest spent on his luxury trips across Myanmar.Is dining regularly with the North-West commander of the Juntas stationed at Khamti and touring Myanmar cities under the Junta commander’s patronage and permission a fight for Naga sovereignty?Doesn’t Niki realize the fact that he is being used as a poster boy by the NCA group to maintain the lifeline of the group by continuing to tax the west Nagas? Is he so adamant about taxing the west Nagas that he is blind to the highest act of treachery committed by the Pangmi rebels? Can Niki ensure the independence and sovereignty of the Nagas from India by accepting Myanmar constitution and becoming Myanmar citizen?

 Doesn’t Niki realize the fact that the Pangmi workers thrice denied him the opportunity to become the Army Chief of Naga Army?Mr.Niki must clarify before the Nagas why he was neither consulted nor involved in the attempt to oust Khango Konyak by 36 Pangmi workers?

 Similarly Mr.Niki must also enlighten the Nagas why he was not consulted or his consent sought in the selection of Yonghong as the leader of the Pangmi sect?Mr.Niki despite his unwavering stand to tax the west Nagas on the pretext of fighting for Naga sovereignty must realize that Nagas are no longer naïve to continue to support and feed the Pangmi led NCA group who have surrendered to Myanmar Government in lieu of economic and development packages and for rehabilitation of the Pangmi leaders.

It is therefore left to the wisdom of the Naga people to decide who are truly fighting for the Nagas and who are only trying to fill their own coffer in the name of Naga sovereignty.It also needs to be noted that Mr.Niki is a billionaire funded by tax and extortion money from Nagaland having palatial buildings from Suruhuto to Mokokchung,Kohima, Dimapur, Lahe ,Khamti etc where as Khango Konyak even as the President and having dedicate 55 years of his life to the national service doesn’t even own a single abode anywhere except his parental cottage at his own village. Therefore Mr.Niki must think twice before pointing his finger at Khango Konyak, Niki is not even qualified to mention the name of Khango Konyak or to question the credibility of Khango.
