DIMAPUR, FEB 11 (NPN) | Publish Date: 2/11/2019 11:33:09 AM IST

Nagaland Tribes Council (NTC) has complimented Joint Coordination Committee (JCC) for spearheading democratic protest against the Citizenship Amendment Bill (CAB) and the delay by the Centre in concluding the ongoing Naga peace process. 

The council also thanked and appreciated Nagas for their sacrifice.

In a statement, NTC further said it was encouraged and felt elated at how the Nagas had responded positively to the call of JCC, comprising civil bodies, tribal organisations and Indigenous citizens, to observe bandh on Monday across the State. 

The council added that it was left to every individual’s choice whether to observe the bandh or not.

And seeing the success of the bandh across the State due to the spontaneous response of the people, the council said it felt encouraged by realising that the Nagas had not lost their spirit. 

“The cohesion so exhibited today has given sense of security that we still possess the potential to synchronise our acts together for common good. 

The spontaneous response from the citizens is a clear sign that people are behind the issues raised in public domain and the messages are loud and clear to those in power,” it added. The council further noted that Nagas were passing through a very critical phase in the light of the Naga political negotiations between government of India and the Nagas, being at the last leg. 

While quoting deputy National Security Adviser and Interlocutor, RN Ravi’s recent statement that the negotiation will “be concluded soon”, NTC however expressed dismay to observe “the evasiveness of the Nagas in matters of common interest of which how crucial the issue may be.” 

NTC said it was pertinent to introspect on how individual and cluster egos had taken better of our common approaches and perspectives, where common interests have been bottlenecked. 

Nevertheless, NTC said it was elated to see how the Nagas of Nagaland responded to the call given by the JCC. 

CC: Coordination Committee (CC) for CAB and Naga political solution under the aegis of NGBF has extended appreciation to all tribe hohos, civil society groups, NGOs, various committees, mass based organizations and the citizens of Nagaland for making the Nagaland Bandh a “resounding success.”

In a press release issued by its media cell, the committee said that the spontaneous participation by the general public of Nagaland itself spoke volumes of the two burning issues at hand, which were close to the heart of the people. 

The committee said that the central political leaders should take heed to the voice of the citizens of Nagaland on early Naga political settlement and their fierce opposition against CAB.

It asserted that CAB was also “another form of internal aggression” against the indigenous people of North East India that infringes into their basic rights and survival.

The committee said it would leave no stone unturned to see that the Naga political solution reached its timely logical end.

Further, the committee has supported the JCPI deadline to the Abhishek Singh Committee for submission of final report making Dimapur an ILP zone. 

Stating that it was in touch with activists and movements in various states of North-East to oppose CAB, the committee has, therefore, appealed to the  citizens of Nagaland to be prepare for further course of action.
