NPC condemns firing incidents

Nagaland Peace Centre (NPC), Kohima has strongly condemned the firing incidents that occurred at Nyasa village and Longwa village under Mon district on Monday.
In a press release, NPC chairman Pedi Miachieo said that thew firing incidents occurred at a time when the country was celebrating its 75th year of Independence and when Nagas have been holding onto peace to solve the ongoing unresolved issues. NPC stated that the “irrational and uncivilized actions of some people” trying to complicate the situations cannot be tolerated.
It stated that such people were a threat to peace and the society, adding that “severe disciplining” should be given to them.
Asserting that now was not the time to have multiple factions, organizations or leaders, the NPC said “What we need now is shed all forms of selfishness and unattainable ideology.”
NPC, however, lamented that “Naga Political Settlement” issue was experiencing “a kind of ‘arrested development’ because of selfish motives.”
NPC has, therefore, urged every stake holder to be mature and practical and work for a common solution at the earliest.
