Dimapur, Sep. 20 (EMN): Citing the need to prevail over ‘internal bickering’, the split within the Khango-led NSCN (K) group has been plastered, according to a press release from the working committee of Naga National Political Groups (NNPG) on Sunday. According to the committee, its political negotiation with the government of India is now on the verge of arriving at its “logical conclusion”.

“Whereas, to have internal bickering resulting into split within any group at this critical juncture amounts to undermining the efforts of the negotiators and of the facilitators alike. In fact, any such action particularly of the national workers that impedes the process of the negotiation is considered a betrayal to the aspiration of the Nagas.

“In the light of the above, Lt. Gen. (Retd) Khango Konyak, chairman of NSCN and president GPRN (K), in presence of NTC peace mediation team, the NGBF and the rest of the WC, NNPG members, has revoked the expulsion of Col. (Retd) Isak Sumi, general secretary, NSCN and ‘ato kilonser’ GPRN (K) and reinstated him in the same status and position held earlier. He will also continue to represent GPRN/NSCN (K) as co-convener in the WC, NNPG,” it stated.
