Nyemlang contemplates joining NSCN/GPRN (R)

DIMAPUR, SEP 15 (NPN) | Publish Date: 9/15/2020 12:55:01 PM IST

“Lt.gen” (retd) Nyemlang Konyak, chairman of the breakaway faction of NSCN (K), has expressed willingness to join the NSCN (Reformation) after “realising the mistake” of clinging on to the “orthodox ideology” of NSCN (K) for such a long time.

In a statement, “lt.gen” (retd) Nyemlang Konyak said that “politically and militarily, I have been born in NSCN/GPRN under the leadership of late. Isaac Swu, Th. Muivah, late SS Khaplang and late Khole Konyak way back in 1982 and constantly worked for more than thirty years.”
Konyak said his “first nightmare” was 1988 split of NSCN into two confronting forces, adding that even after the split he had been through all the ups and downs and thick and thin in NSCN setup. He said that confusion and distrust continued to reign the leaders often drawn the suspicious line between them leading to another split in 2011 further separating the leaders — late Khole and Kitovi on one side while late SS Khaplang on the other side—leaving him with the latter. 
Konyak said that the “unrest and inconsistent in the ranks and file continued to hunt the leaders pushing NSCN (K) to the verge of another confusion when late SS Khaplang unilaterally abrogated 14-year old ceasefire with Government of India and expelled Y Wangtin Naga, the then convener ceasefire group NSCN (K) for attending proposed ceasefire meeting as usual in March 2015 without any warning.” However, Konayk said he still remained with late SS Khaplang.
After the demise of SS Khaplang, Konyak said vice-president “lt.gen” (redt) Khango Konyak replaced the former as president. However, within short period of time, Konyak said Khango was expelled by NSCN (K) rank and file. “All these actions are nonsense and shameful making the genuine Naga political movement a mockery,” “lt.gen.” (retd) Nyemlang Konyak said.
He said NSCN (I-M) on its part was engaged in dialogue with government of India for more than twenty years and “kept themselves warm and intact although no tangible agreement was arrived at.”
Konyak said that beginning 2018, the conglomeration of six Naga political groups began fresh dialogue with the Government of India, but now it seven Naga national political groups (NNPGs) were involved in the dialogue.
He said that both NSCN (I-M) and WC/NNPGs have “reportedly” concluded major junk of crucial issues heading towards final solution. 
Having realised the mistake of clinging on to the “orthodox ideology” of NSCN (K) for such a long time, Konyak said that he has “finally decided” to join the peace process for solution by choosing and joining any political group(s) engaged in talks. “This process of my thought pushing me to choose NSCN/GPRN- Reformation to be my ultimate platform,” he said.
Therefore, Konayk said he has decided to begin contact with NSCN (R) top brass and shortly announce his joining once official contact was established.
