NSCN (I-M) on choice before Nagas

DIMAPUR, OCT 17 (NPN) | Publish Date: 10/17/2019 12:14:00 PM IST

NSCN (I-M) through its MIP said Nagas were driven to the point where they had to decide which way to go, “either we allow ourselves to be exploited because of our insanity or we decide ourselves by taking the right decision at the right time.”

Stating this, MIP pointed out that it was certainly the reckoning time for the Nagas as the world was watching how “we Nagas” handled this defining moment.  NSCN also maintained that above everything, God was also definitely keeping an eye on how Nagas, irrespective of groups or factions, civil society organizations, the church and individuals, took their ground to uphold the course of Naga history. 

 NSCN (I-M) said that in the present testing moment, no sacrifice was too big to save the Naga nation from drifting away into oblivion and no individuals were untouchable, to come to common ground to save the Naga nation. 

It also said no leaders were too big before God to find the meeting point with other leaders to save the Naga nation.

NSCN (I-M) also pointed out that on many occasions, much has been said about hundreds and thousands who were martyred and also unfailingly acknowledged, that it was because of them (martyrs), that NSCN (I-M) has come this far to negotiate with the Government of India to present “our historical and political rights in the manner that ultimately won the recognition of our unique history and situation to put us in the winning position.” 

However, NSCN  (I-M) alleged that Government of India and its agencies too were working sleeplessly to exploit “our vulnerabilities” to pull away many Naga individuals or groups with monetary baits and other highly rated economic packages” adding that these were short-term gains that did not merit the blood of “our martyrs”.  

NSCN (I-M) said Naga history would not certainly end here and that it had cautioned that a time would come in history when “our children” who would take over the reins to finish the unfinished task from “us” would question “us for our failure to take the right decision at the right time”.

NSCN (I-M) said unfortunately, there has been a rise of many black sheep “who shamelessly took their venomous write-ups to the media”, while a selected few civil society groups went extra vocal putting pressure upon the stakeholders to sign the agreement within the time limit set by the Prime Minister notwithstanding whatever was to be lost.

It said there was no doubt that these were the people with dubious standing, least bothered to defend the legitimate historical and political rights of the Nagas. 

However, NSCN(I-M) said it was not too late to “rethink over the steps” that had been taken lest the wrath of “our own people comes in heaps” because it involved Naga people’s pride and identity. 

Further it said this concerned Nagas’ covenant with God “when He gave the rainbow flag to them more than seven decades ago to bring us to this day”.
