Reconciliation meet: All are welcome
Invites Politicians and Bureaucrats
Dimapur, February 25 (MExN): The Forum for Naga Reconciliation has said that the “Naga Reconciliation Meeting” scheduled for February 29 to be held at the Agri-Expo Centre in Dimapur is organized by the forum and all citizens, leaders and organizations are welcome. “The FNR wishes to clearly state that no one is excluded. All are welcome to join the ‘Naga Reconciliation Meeting’” the forum said.
“In the course of ‘Naga Reconciliation: A Journey of Common Hope’ the Forum for Naga Reconciliation has in numerous public meetings over the last four years asserted that it would eventually organize a large Naga meeting,” the forum said in a press release received here today. The proposed meeting is the very meeting that the forum had envisaged a couple of years ago, the forum said.
“The purpose of the meeting is for the FNR to report to the people on the status of the reconciliation process and that during such a meeting it would also invite leaders of all Naga groups (factions) to share its position on reconciliation and its vision for a shared Naga future,” the forum said.
The press release said that the Forum for Naga Reconciliation was ‘not formed in a vacuum’ and the concept emerged out of the Naga Peace Convention in 2008; after a series of meetings, the ‘FNR’ was formally endorsed by 29 Naga organizations at Hotel Japfü in Kohima. “Since then, the more Naga organizations have reaffirmed the ‘Naga Reconciliation: A Journey of Common Hope’ at different intervals – September 25, 2008; February 22, 2009; August 25, 2009; November 18, 2010; April 8, 2011, besides visiting various Naga towns and villages.
“And now on February 29, 2012, the FNR seeks to report to the Naga people on the status of Naga Reconciliation. Furthermore, FNR has extended warm invitation to the leaders of all the Naga groups (factions) to stand before the Naga people and to share their views on Reconciliation and their vision on a shared Naga future.”
On February 14, three Naga groups publicly expressed support by extending invitation to the “Naga Reconciliation Meeting,” the note said. “…since then other Naga groups have also endorsed it. The Forum for Naga Reconciliation would like to inform the Naga people, that the ‘Naga Reconciliation Meeting’ is for the Naga people and “because public trust was put on FNR to facilitate a reconciliation process among the Naga groups (factions), it is duty bound to share with the people its experiences in the Reconciliation meeting.”
Once again, the forum extends invitation to the leaders of all the Naga underground groups (“factions”), the Naga Hoho, tribe hohos, ENPO, UNC, Nagas in Myanmar, Assam and Arunachal, all women organizations, all the student organizations, colleges, schools, village leaders, churches, senior citizens, GBs and DBs, Naga Council, Dimapur, politicians and bureaucrats “and the Naga public at large.”
