Naga Council welcome NSCN (K) peace offer
DIMAPUR, JULY 5 (MExN): At a time when there has been a spurt of factional clashes and bloodletting once again, the statement of NSCN (K) through its CFSB supervisor Lincoln that ‘NSCN (K) is willing to talk peace and sit with rival group to end factional violence’ is a breather, stated a press note issued by Naga Council President Savi Liegise. The Naga Council “representing voice of Dimapur civil society” expressed appreciation and hope that the NSCN (K) will sustain such an “open door policy with all factions and the GoI which will but only promote goodwill among all concerned to usher in conducive atmosphere for dialogue”.
“It is the fervent appeal of Naga Council to all Naga National political groups to once again step up peace initiative both with the GoI and amongst factions in the larger interest of the undying Naga dream of self aspiration”, the press note stated. While appreciating the positive step of the NSCN (K), the Naga Council reiterated its call to the Government of India to respond with seriousness and sincerity as assured to the Naga people time and again.
The Indo-Naga political imbroglio has been one of the hottest subjects in the world of insurgency, watched by thinkers, writers, peacemakers and nation-makers across the world, the Naga Council stated and pointing out that the “Naga story is not an unknown story of political struggle of a people anymore but widely read, debated and documented by researchers”.
“And therefore, such a struggle is often bound to fall prey to fragmented interests of vested groups and inimical forces both in India, the world and the Naga homeland itself”, the press note stated while adding that the “Indo-Naga issue has undergone more than its share of resistance to resolution” and that “all these have not helped in any way the people at the core of the struggle, the Nagas”.
Stating that it was “time for both the Nagas and India to sit together and resolve the issue without losing anymore time”, the Naga Council pointed out that the GoI’s fear of losing Nagaland or reluctance to give peace to the Nagas is based on nothing but a display of sheer lack of courage and miscalculation by a nation led by accomplished statesmen of the world’s next superpower-in-waiting. “India must take the bold initiative and claim its due credit for resolving the issue. This bold step will not only bring India closer to its inevitable stature as world leader but peace to a people who have been wrongly deprived for almost a century”.
