ZCOs statement to claims of the dialectal groups

 As the proverb goes “empty vessel sounds much” is relevant to dialectal groups i.e. Zeme, Liangmai, Rongmei under the platform so called “Joint Tribes Council”. The Zeliangrong Civil Organizations (ZCOs) i.e. Zeliangrong Baudi, Zeliangrong Youth Front and Zeliangrong Students’ Union considering of no worth to react to such unfounded claims of the dialectal groups have been maintaining silent even though these dialectal groups have been creating so much noise frequently in media just to please somebody who in fact is making fun of them. Some individuals of these dialectal groups of Zeme, Liangmai, Rongmei are too much obsessed with the hope that the NSCN (IM) may bring stars and moon out of the Naga political issue thereby acting as a “mouthpiece” under the banner of “joint tribe council” and parroting the verse of the NSCN (IM) and trying to mislead the innocent general public. 

Some individuals of the dialectal groups i.e. Zeme, Liangmai, Rongmei are completely unaware that there are tribes who speaks different dialects but no dialectal groups of those tribes ever claimed themselves as separate and distinct tribe. There are some tribes who are comprised of totally different origin and background unlike Zeliangrong family, yet they don’t claimed themselves as different people. 

However, some individuals in the Zeliangrong family are injected with venomous poison as such they are like robots working under the command of electronic devices used by somebody. 

Every time some individuals of Zeliangrong family without relying on their background and originated history are claiming that Zeme, Liangmai, Rongmei is a distinct tribe after the NSCN (IM) granted separate tribes recognition. 

Why should the law abiding citizens uphold the order issued by the underground group ? The NSCN (IM) is just one of the Naga underground groups, therefore, separate tribe recognition of Zeme, Liangmai, Rongmei by the NSCN (IM) or any other underground groups cannot be binding on the future of Zeliangrong family. Underground groups came and go but the Zeliangrong family will remain as it is. The NSCN (IM) who enjoyed the support of majority Naga people once upon a time on their claimed of “uniqueness of Naga history” has now completely loss the trust and confidence of the Naga people after they distorted the Naga history. The Zeliangrong family is one of the victim by the NSCN (IM) distorted Naga history as evident by the so called separate tribe recognition as Zeme, Liangmai, Rongmei. 

The Naga civil organizations such as Manipur based United Naga Council (UNC) and Nagaland based Naga Hoho (NH) were very powerful bodies once upon a time but now victims of the Naga political issue after they succumbed to the diktat of the NSCN (IM). It is unlikely that the United Naga Council (UNC) and Naga Hoho (NH) will regain its loss image and reputation. The love, respect and honour of the Naga people for the United Naga Council (UNC) and Naga Hoho (NH) is diminishing day by day therefore it cannot be ruled out that these organizations may not face its natural dead anytime. 

Any peoples’ organizations not based on reason, truth, reality and correct history cannot last long is exemplified by the diminishing reputation and image of the United Naga Council (UNC) and Naga Hoho (NH). 

Regarding the Central Govt. granted separate tribe recognition for Zeme, Liangmai, Rongmei, it is well known that the Central Govt. will recognise any nomenclature for any tribe if requested for separate tribe nomenclatures recognition. 

It is advised to those individuals of dialectal groups of Zeme, Liangmai, Rongmei to be aware the different nomenclatures given to Zeliangrong tribe in different Indian States such in Assam State of Dima Hasao (North Cachar Hills) we are recognised as Zeme Naga and in Cachar valley known as Hills Tribes in plain, in the State of Manipur we are recognised as Kabui, Zeme, Liangmai, Rongmei, Inpui, Kacha Naga and in the State of Nagaland we are recognised as Zeliang tribe. 

Those individuals who claimed to be the leaders of the dialectal groups of Zeme, Liangmai, Rongmei or the so called “Joint Tribes Council” will surely come to realise their mistake as soon as the final agreement for the Naga solution is signed and the NSCN (IM) is absorbed. 

The Govt. of India is not blind to the supreme sacrifice of Haipou Jadonang for the cause of India’s freedom movement from the bondage of British Colonial Rule and the maximum contribution rendered by Rani Gaidinliu during the India’s freedom movement therefore, the Govt. of India will definitely repay for the great injustice done so far to Zeliangrong people.
