DIMAPUR, NOV 16 (NPN) | Publish Date: 11/16/2019 11:19:17 AM IST

NSCN (I-M) through its MIP expressed apprehension that the longer the “Indo-Naga political issue” keeps wrangling, many more bizarre incidents, particularly with the ubiquitous Assam Rifles may follow anytime anywhere. “This calls for urgency and this calls for sincerity and commitment on the part of the two entities engaged in political talks for final Indo-Naga political agreement,” it asserted. 

NSCN (I-M)’s statement comes after its commander of Phungtha Brigade, Naga Army, ‘brig.’ Thotmathing was detained by Assam Rifles on November 14 evening between Hoomi and Talui, Wung Tangkhul Region (WTR). 

However, NSCN (I-M) said Thotmathing, who was on his way to Ukhrul from Dimapur was released as a goodwill gesture. 

While appreciating the positive response exhibited by the Assam Rifles, NSCN (I-M) said the Tangkhul civil society groups, wasted no time to activate themselves to launch peaceful operation in a democratic manner to get the Thotmathing released.

It expressed gratitude and lauded the Tangkhul civil society groups, particularly women groups like Halang Shanaa Long, Tangkhul Shanaa Long, Hunphun Shanaa Long and others for bravely rising up to face the AR by “proving themselves the stuff they are made of when confronted with such an incident that provoked their conscience,” particularly at this critical juncture when the Nagas were at the threshold of starting a new era after signing the agreement that is being given a final touch. 

NSCN (I-M) said its vice chairman/vice president Tongmeth Wangnao was all praise to the Tangkhul women society groups who were involved in showing solidarity with ‘brig.’ Thotmathing. He said the bravery they had shown was extraordinary. He called upon Nagas not to fear doing such act of bravery while Indians and Nagas were in peace and the process underway to work out for the final agreement. 

Meanwhile, Wangnao prayed for God’s blessing and courage to be upon the Naga people.
