NSCN(I-M) has again hit out at former chief minister and governor Dr. SC Jamir for mentioning to Prime Minister Narendra Modi in Delhi, that since flag and constitution were not in Framework Agreement, solution should not be delayed on account of them.
It may be noted that Dr. Jamir had said this while meeting the Prime Minister in Delhi to strongly urge the latter to bring early solution to the Naga political issue since talks had concluded officially on October 31,2019.
Reacting to the Jamir’s remark, NSCN (I-M) termed it as another “desperate attempt” by Dr. Jamir to campaign for the “new version of his 16 Points Agreement”
NSCN (I-M) through its MIP said it was not a wonder that “Jamir was in Delhi recently to knock at the door of the Prime Minister of India Narendra Modi to give strong hints to sign the Naga solution based on Agreed Position which favor his political dream.”
NSCN (I-M) however cautioned that the process, Jamir did not foresee that “it would invite another era of bloodshed”. NSCN (I-M) said the choice was thus left with the Prime Minister either to choose Jamir the trouble-maker or a permanent peaceful settlement of the Naga issue.
Further, NSCN (I-M) accused him of having sabotaged a meeting between then Prime Minister Jawaharlal Nehru and Naga leader AZ Phizo. It claimed that Nehru knew that the 16-Point Agreement would not resolve the Naga issue and therefore expressed his desire in the Parliament to meet Phizo to resolve the Naga issue once and for all.
However, NSCN (I-M) alleged that Jamir, then serving as a parliamentary secretary, protested and successfully prevented the meeting from taking place.
NSCN(I-M) reacts to Jamir’s remark on flag and constitution
Placed under such a situation following another desperate attempt by Dr. SC Jamir in New Delhi when he met the Prime Minister of India Mr. Narendra Modi to campaign for the new version of his 16 Points Agreement and his repeated disparaging remark against the inclusion of Naga flag and Yehzabo (Constitution) in the Naga solution as he misinterpreted the political meaning of every single word of the Framework Agreement to suit his own political propaganda against the Framework Agreement, the National Socialist Council of Nagalim (NSCN) is constrained to expose the ugly face of Dr. SC Jamir as a political criminal.
Needless to say, he is the only living architect and signatory of the 16 Points Agreement. At the particular time when the 16 Points Agreement was in the air, the Indian Prime Minister J. Nehru knew very well that the 16 points would not go far enough to resolve the Naga issue.
Therefore, he raised the issue in the Indian Parliament to meet Mr. AZ Phizo in order to resolve the Naga issue once and for all. But Dr. Jamir who was serving as a Parliamentary Secretary protested and successfully prevented the meeting to take place. He wrote a letter to Shilu Ao, the then Chief Minister of Nagaland state if the Government of India (GoI) is scared of the Naga underground for creating problem. “Why should I sit in the Indian Parliament? I can go back and create more problem than the undergrounds”.
During his chief ministership in Nagaland he attempted to finish the NSCN by employing every available means at his disposal. He raised forces like Nagaland Youth Front, 9th Brigade and 6th Brigade to go all out against NSCN. But God forbid these anti-NSCN forces to have their way.
All these elements were eliminated in counter operations by NSCN. Again, with the sanction of the GoI, a dreaded policy of peace offensive with Rs. 103 crores was put into action to hunt down and finish the NSCN. Going further, even 100 AKs that were meant for the Nagaland Armed Police (NAP) modernization was given to a faction to fight the NSCN as he declared that ‘chaff and paddy’ has to be separated and helplessly as a last resort, instigated his gangster faction to serve quit notice to the Tangkhuls whereby 35 innocent civilians were brutally killed including chemist, scientist, pastor, teacher, farmer, woman and students without any reservation.
With his inherent tendency to stoke fire of controversy, while the peace process was at its peak, Jamir published a book “Bedrock of Naga Society” where he stated that the 16 Points Agreement is the Alpha and Omega for the Indo-Naga political agreement. Burdened with this turn out, the GoI was thrown into uneasy position and consequently, the Indo-Naga talk was unjustly delayed. Nevertheless, there was a high pitch for the success of the Naga political solution and the Naga people’s unflinching support was evidently displayed. Finally, the Framework Agreement was signed which generated much political fervor. Understandably, Jamir went through sleepless nights as he knew too well that his 16 Points Agreement has been at risk of being superseded. After this, he has been burning his midnight oil to stop from implementing the Framework Agreement.
He started attacking the FA in various forms and outrageously misinterpreted to suit his way. Mr. RN Ravi’s coming to Nagaland state as the Governor gave Jamir the best opportunity to divert and dilute the FA. Much to the fulfillment of his scheming political agenda, in 2017, a third party/force was created known as the NNPGs and agreement was signed which is called “Agreed Position”, targeted against the Framework Agreement.
Reading between the lines, the Agreed Position is just a re-edited version of the 16 Points Agreement. No wonder Jamir was in Delhi recently to knock at the door of the Prime Minister of India Mr. Narendra Modi to give strong hints to sign the Naga solution based on Agreed Position which favor his political dream. But in the process, he does not foresee that it will invite another era of bloodshed. How we wish him to live another hundred years to witness how the Nagas defend their birthright! The choice is left for the Prime Minister of India, either to choose Jamir the trouble maker or the permanent peaceful settlement of the Naga issue.
