NSCN (I-M) condemns raid by Assam Rifles

DIMAPUR, APR 6 (NPN) | Publish Date: 4/6/2021 12:48:36 PM IST

NSCN (I-M) has condemned the raid carried out by Assam rifles at the residence of kilonser Lentherie, who is a member of Cease Fire Monitoring Cell (CFMC), here on the midnight of April 4. 

Terming the raid as unwarranted, NSCN (I-M) said it also put AR in a bad light for arbitrarily violating the agreed Cease Fire Ground Rules (CFGRs). 

Referring to the AR claim that the raid was carried out under the direction of the Union Home ministry (MHA), NSCN (I-M) said this demeaned the office of the chairman of CFMG and CFGRs. 

It said the paramilitary force’s notoriety for bulldozing any agreed rules was showing its ubiquitous head again, adding the agreement signed on June 14, 2002 between NSCN (I-M) and government of India (GoI) on ceasefire without territorial limit was not been honoured in spirit and action. 

“Ironically, this nuisance of AR to dampen the ceasefire spirit never ends and it has become the eyesore of the Indo-Naga political dialogue,” NSCN (I-M) stated. 

NSCN (I-M) regretted that the critical importance of maintaining cordial relationship between it and AR/MHA was not respected as demanded by the need to resolve the Indo-Naga political issue at the earliest. 

Alleging that AR personnel conducted “unwarranted raids in many houses all over Nagalim,” NSCN (I-M) also expressed surprise that the force repeatedly raided the same houses where nothing incriminating or illegal was recovered. It asked AR not look at it with criminal intent and said raiding the houses of CFMC members by the forces were violation of CFGRs.

However, NSCN (I-M) declared that it was totally committed to the “Indo-Naga ceasefire agreement and the historic Framework Agreement” to peacefully co-exist with India as two friendly entities. 

It, therefore, called upon MHA to stop AR from “overindulgence in freewheeling raids” against its members. Peaceful atmosphere and political talk could not be separated, it stressed.
