Tenyimi Union Dimapur affirms on ‘one people, one nation’

Tenyimi Union Dimapur (TUD) Wednesday declared its decision to stand on the political principle of “one people, one Nation” (without border) taken by AZ Phizo based on the ideals of the 1951 plebiscite.
In a press release, TUD president Vekhosayi Nyekha and vice president Luangbe Zeliang said the union unanimously adopted the resolution during a consultative meeting held on June 28, 2022. The union said the decision was taken in view of the developing situation arising out of the ongoing political talks between the Government of India and various Naga national groups. Expressing concern over the political development taking place in Naga homeland in recent times, the union, therefore, stated that any settlement/solution should be acceptable, honourable and inclusive of all Nagas and groups.
On the formation of Nagaland People’s Action Committee (PAC) under the aegis of NGBF, the TUD said it has viewed the development with all seriousness. The union stated that GBs, being agents and appointees of the government, had no authority to initiate such programmes, which it maintained “may further divide the Nagas when every section of the society longs for permanent peace.”
TUD has, therefore, resolved not to participate in any programme organized by NPAC. It also appealed to every right-thinking citizen to refrain from participation in any such programmes, which it said “may be detrimental to peace and tranquillity.”
The meeting was attended by TUD officials, representatives of affiliated tribal units and frontal organizations including Tenyimi Students’ Union Dimapur, Tenyimi Women Union Dimapur and Tenyimi Youth Organisation Dimapur.
