FNR, Naga bodies call on political groups to honour commitment
DIMAPUR — A meeting of Naga apex bodies and the churches, convened under the aegis of Forum for Naga Reconciliation (FNR) on Monday, urged the Naga National Political Groups (NNPGs) and the NSCN/GPRN to meet without delay and honour their commitments.
In a press release issued by the FNR, the groups were urged to meet without delay and honour their commitments – the ‘September Joint Accordant’ of Sep. 14, 2022, the ‘Kolkata Meeting’ of Oct. 18, 2022, and the ‘Nagas are Moving Ahead,’ of Jan. 14, 2023.
“Besides, the meeting also agreed to organise events in order call upon the Government of India to accelerate the Naga political agreements before the general elections,” the release stated.
Emphasising the urgency and expectation for the NNPG and the NSCN/GPRN to listen to the call of the Naga people, the meeting also highlighted the importance of regional aspirations.
“Nagas from every side must cooperate with each other without compulsion. Our cooperation must emerge voluntarily by respecting every cultural (tribal) group and political organisations,” it asserted.
“Changes are a fact—politics and political forms are also changing. If we are to come together as a nation, we all need to acknowledge each other and cooperate. In case, due to personal reason, one is unable to cooperate, we must respect their position. The Nagas at large shall not allow room for undermining nor overbearing anyone. In everything, we seek peace with all and for all,” the release stated.
Further, it called upon Naga people and citizens of the land to “render support to the forms of transformative changes being dreamt of in accordance to global relevance.”
