 NSCN (I-M) steering committee convener, Rh. Raising, has affirmed that the group will never betray the people’s trust and aspiration while reiterating that sovereignty of the Nagas has never been compromised.

According to MIP of NSCN(I-M) Raising said this at a consultative meeting with Nagaland GBs Federation(NGBF) at Hotel Saramati Dimapur on August 10. He maintained that NSCN (I-M) had survived the harsh attempt of its adversaries to annihilate the Naga political movement “because our movement is a principle and issue based backed by the GBs besides the benevolent Almighty’s will.” Raising also gave a brief description of the “unique” history of the Nagas and the long struggle against the Indian government. 

Also, speaking at the meeting, Naga Army Longvibu “Lieut. Gen.” Anthony Shimray, who is also political commissar to the collective leadership, asserted that it was the fundamental rights of the Nagas to protect and secure the land that God blessed. Shimray said the “Nagas must cling to God as He is the only one who can give us what is rightfully ours.” 

In his speech, NSCN (I-M) Kilo Kilonser, Hukavi Yepthomi, said that solution to the ongoing peace talk, which the Nagas were patiently waiting, was the only way to settle the “Indo-Naga issue.” He also said that any settlement of “Indo-Naga” conflict would be based on the political and historical rights of the Nagas. NGBF president, Shalem Konyak, maintained that Naga leaders and followers must unite and fight for the common cause and extended their support to the Framework Agreement.  He also expressed hope for an early solution to the “Indo-Naga” conflict. 

NGBF general secretary, Shikuto Zalipu, on behalf of the NGBF, expressed gratitude to NSCN (I-M) for rendering their “invaluable service and sacrifices made thus far for the Naga nation”.
