PSU observes 62nd Pochury Black Day

Pochury Students’ Union (PSU) observed the 62nd Pochury Black Day on Tuesday, at Freedom Park Matikhrü village under Meluri sub-division.
In a press release, PSU assembly speaker, Jakob Thuu informed that while speaking on the significance of the day, PSU president, Müphatho Nyuthe said “Matikhrü massacre should be acknowledged by every Naga as it is the supreme sacrifice done in the history of Nagas struggle”.
He stated that enough of blood was shed and tortures were meted upon the Nagas in all the Nagas inhabited areas.
In this regard, he urged upon everyone to rise and not to be enticed with packages and temporary solution.
Lamenting how the Naga freedom fighters were “forming new groups for self-benefit on the pretext of taking Naga issue forward”, Müphatho appealed to the negotiating parties to expedite the talks. He said the solution should be honourable, inclusive, acceptable and lasting for the younger generation.
Pochury Mothers’ Association (PMA) president, Sürhothsü Phoji in a solidarity message acknowledged the sacrifices made by Nagas.
She urged upon the gathering to usher peace for a harmonious society and also called on all the Naga political groups to unite and fight for the Naga cause with utmost sincerity.
Earlier, the programme was chaired by Matikhrü Students’ Union president Tsiarhotho Tsangkhure, welcome note was delivered by Matikhrü Village Council chairman Wilson Katiry and words of gratitude was proposed by Matikhrü head GB Kuorho Pojar.
Solidarity messages were also read out by A. Kenneth of Naga Peoples Movement for Human Rights and member, Collective Leadership NSCN/GPRN Zarsie Nyuthe.
