Boundary fencing dividing the Nagas between India and Myanmar
[dropcap]L[/dropcap]et it be known to all concern that the so called boundary between the India and Myanmar in the North East Sector is nothing but the outcome of the arbitrary “divide and rule” policy of the then British Imperialism. Any attempt to finalise the so called artificial boundary without taking the consent of the indigenous Naga settlers will be liable to o~right rejection by the people of both the states and any forcible attempt of implementation of the said “divide and rule” policy is fraud with serious consequences. What was wrongly done in the history cannot be righted by the present government without correcting the mistake already made. Therefore, the present construction of boundary fencing between India and Myanmar in this sector is not only ill conceived but appears to look like an attempt to call off the ongoing peace talk. This is particularly important for all concerned to proceed with great care to usher in the opportunity of real peace to the inhabitants at this point of time when Nagas have already signed cease fire agreement to have peace talk with both the countries. Therefore, J appeal to both the Governments to stop construction of boundary fencing in the Naga territories before the Indo-Naga political settlement is finalized.
