WC, NNPGs clarifies on NNC (PB) issue

DIMAPUR, JUL 28 (NPN) | Publish Date: 7/28/2019 11:27:10 AM IST

Working Committee (WC), Naga National Political Groups (NNPGs) has taken strong exception to a press release published by some anonymous person in the name of NNC (Parent Body) on July 23.

Dismissing the press release, the committee in a statement stated that it reflected mischief and isolated mindset of the individual. 

Asserting that Z Royim Yimchungru was a proven nationalist and president of NNC (PB), WC explained that he had exercised power and authority derived from NNC Yehzabo and replaced V Nagi with Toshi Walling as co-convener in the committee as per its appeal.

The committee further stated that the leadership of Royim and NNC (Parent Body) was equally important, adding it did not and could not recognise imposters and outcasts. 

“If Z Royim Yimchungru is a GB or a member in any social order, it means he is a people’s leader, recognised and accepted at grassroots level as in Naga national service,” the statement stressed. 

Alleging that there were elements who were hell bent on tarnishing image of NNPGs and discrediting the achievements of WC thus far as the contours of political dialogue with Government of India had become more pronounced, the committee said dubious characters accusing the NNC (Parent Body) president due to their selfish and destructive nature would struggle to get into village council as members, let alone becoming GBs. These elements had thrown the last dice in the name of NNC (Parent Body) and they had failed themselves, it added.

NNC (PB) reacts

Reacting to the news item “NNC-PB clarifies”, the NNC (Parent Body) through its MIP clarified that that NNC (PB) led by its president Z. Royim was the only legitimate and consensus body, under whose authority and leadership the NNPGs working Committee has recognized it to have negotiations with the government of India from the initial stage of Naga political peace talk.

MIP therefore cautioned unauthorized “self-style individuals or group” to stop using the name of NNC-Parent Body for the destructive motive to damage the image of the government, which may derail the hard-earned ongoing political talk with the government of India, which was at the final stage.

MIP also warned of stern action as per the “Azha (law)” against those publishing any kind of article without the knowledge of the government.

It reminded that NNC (PB) under the leadership of president Z. Royim Yimchungru, vice president S.K. Zhimomi Sumi, general secretary Toshi Walling Ao, asst. general secretary Liangkebo Pamai Zeliang CEC Members and Regional authorities are firmly working and functioning for peaceful settlement of Naga the political issue under NNPGs Working Committee.
