Western Sumi Hoho (WSH) has expressed surprise and dismay over the “turn of events” following the split within the NSCN (R) and “one-sided total support” extended to the “new NSCN group led by Akato Chophy” by the Western Sumi Kukami Hoho (WSKH).

In a press release, WSH president Shikaho Zhimomi and general secretary Kisheto Chishi affirmed that the Western Sumi Hoho was “cent per cent neutral to all the Naga national political groups.” WSH termed as “very unfortunate” the expressed opinion of the WSKH (main frontal wing of the WSH), which it said was “in direct contradiction with the stand of the WSH.”

The hoho maintained that Akato Chophy was “not a leader of a small pocket area, but a Naga national leader”, who it said was “one among the equals.” 

“To declare him a leader as proclaimed by the WSKH just because he happened to be the son of the Western Sumi soil, just because he belongs to a particular area, or a particular tribe or community, only serves in belittling and denigrating him as a local leader, and not a national leader,” WSH stated. Reiterating that it equally respects all the Naga national political leaders, the hoho said that it was “in this spirit of equality that Akato Chophy is respected as one among the equals.”

As the apex public organisation of the Western Sumis, WSH said it “takes back the expressed opinion of the WSKH and seeks due apology from the Naga people for the one-sided pigeon hole opinion of the WSKH.” 

Further, WSH affirmed that it stood for the unity of all the Naga national political groups “to fast forward a solution to the protracted Naga political issue.”
