We are committed to Naga cause: NSCN (IM) on 45th Raising day
NSCN (I-M), GPRN/NSCN and NSCN-K (YA) on Wednesday observed the 45th Raising Day at their respective council headquarters.
Leaders of Naga political groups including NSCN (IM), GPRN/ NSCN (Unification) and Yung Aung-led NSCN (K) have urged the public not to lose faith but to recommit themselves to the Naga cause, in their messages issued on the 45th NSCN Raising Day.
Addressing the members of the NSCN (IM) at its designated camp in Hebron on Wednesday, the chairman of the group Q Tuccu reflected on the historical trajectory of the Naga political government and the current state of negotiations with the Government of India.
n a message, NSCN (I-M) chairman Q Tuccu reaffirmed that the political and peace agreement that Framework Agreement stood for remained the only viable and ideal solution to the long-delayed Naga political solution. Asserting that the NSCN (I-M) had stood the test of time, he asserted that the group’s commitment to Naga political cause remained steadfast in the face of rapidly changing times, adding that the NSCN (I-M) had shown remarkable resilience and loyalty to Framework Agreement despite all difficulties.
“We have proved our credibility as the torchbearer of Naga political issue and national principle. We have stood the ground to stand by our flag and yehzabo that symbolise our history and national identity….,” Tuccu stated.
He demanded that the Indian political leadership walk the talk on the Naga issue, stressing that the Central government had the moral responsibility to act since negotiations had completed. Pointing out that Naga people were patient practitioners of ancient democratic values, he reiterated that negotiations had officially concluded on October 31, 2019.
In a statement, NSCN-K (YA) president Yung Aung said despite the unquestionable right of the Naga people to sovereignty, the Central government and pro-talks Naga political groups were on the verge of committing another historical blunder by conspiring to end the hard-fought movement under the Indian constitution. He opined that the so-called Naga solution was meaningless for the Naga people as the main ingredient “sovereignty” was not on the agenda.
