NNC/GDRN (NA) no longer exists, claims former leaders

DIMAPUR, MAY 1 (NPN) | Publish Date: 5/1/2019 11:17:54 AM IST

Reacting to the statement of NNC/GDRN (Non-Accord) denying reports of its dissolution, Kumcho Chilimong and Hangping Zeliang who claimed to be former president and general secretary respectively said NNC/GDRN no longer exists as it had merged officially with NSCN (I-M) on October 28, 2016. Hence, there is no NNC/GDRN (NA) thereafter, they added.

In a joint statement, the duo alleged that financial mismanagement was at its peak when Kiumukam was in the government and accused the latter of heading the government only to lead a luxurious life. However, Chilimong and Zeliang said his ambition could not be fulfilled as he was arrested by 32 Assam Rifles from his home at Naharbari, Dimapur and released after eight days.

Mentioning that the arrest shocked all NNC (NA) members, the duo recalled that national hoho was convened to deliberate the issue. But as Kiumukam refused to attend the meeting despite being urged by general Secretary, they said Kiumukam was removed from through proper channel by national hoho, after which Kumcho Chilimong was unanimously elected as president.

Recalling the association with Kiumukam for a few years, the duo, however, alleged that his activities like extortions, financial mismanagement and misuse of writing pads by describing himself “His Excellency President” and distributing it to the public led them to derogate. They, therefore, urged information & publicity wing of NNC (NA) not to repeat the allegation.
