ENPO ‘charter of demand’ should not infringe Naga political issue — NSCN (Khango)

DIMAPUR — NSCN (Khango) has extended solidarity to the legitimate and feasible demands of the Eastern Nagaland People’s Organisation (ENPO), which would boost the economic and the holistic development of the area.

An NSCN’s statement through its MIP, however, stated that the content in the “Charter of Demands” should not, in any way or form, infringe or encumber the paramount interest of the Nagas and the Naga political issue.

It recalled that its president, Lieut. Gen (retired), Khango Konyak, had already expressed the stand of the government at Wangkhao College, Mon, in 2011, when a conglomerate of leaders met under the aegis of ENPO to formulate the charter of demands. It stated that he had explicitly stated that “The government would not interfere or exert undue influence in the formulation of demands. However, the content in the ‘charter of demands’ should not in anyway, suppress, or hijack the legitimacy of the inherent Naga political issue and there should be a fine demarcation between the two paramount issues.”

The NSCN (Khango) further advised the ENPO brothers and sisters not to succumb to the “Carrot and Stick” tactics of the government of India (GoI) in implementing the democratic demands.

“In the event that speculated demands of laying down of arms by national political workers in ENPO region by the GoI is complied with by the ENPO, the ato kilonser of the NSCN/GPRN (K), Hokato Vusshe, has remarked that such an act would have an irrevocable far-reaching consequence and would be considered as a treacherous betrayal to the Nagas,” the statement read.

It further stated that the government, in retaliation, would explore other means of exposure and warned that the responsible leaders would be held accountable for the unfavourable aftermath.
