Naga People Verses NSCN (IM) Framework Agreement

By EMN Updated: Oct 26, 2016 1:43 am

The most sophisticated and political conscious Naga People becomes most confused and worthless group of people today in the hands of most selfish and stubborn leaders of different Naga Political Groups. The most remarkable and worthier period were the regime of NNC between 1940s to 1970s, till NSCN came into being in 1980 under the leadership of Lt. Isak Chisi Swu, Th. Muivah, Khole and S.S. Khaplang accusing some workers of NNC of being the part of infamous Shillong Accord of 1975. They failed to use their wisdom to judge the situation and began to attack one another. The best solution to the given situation could have been expulsion of accord signatories instead of condemning their own government i.e. NNC. But the said leaders installed the parallel organization which resulted into downfall of Naga Political Movement.

They might felt proud of what they did without realizing that, their action torn down the unity of the Naga people which was regrettable and unfortunate for the Nagas. The NSCN/GPRN which they have installed in 1980 witnessed disintegration only after eight years of its formation mainly due to selfish and suspicious character of the leaders and the undivided NSCN/GPRN vertically divided into two i.e. NSCN-K and NSCN-IM. The leaders refused to reconcile and began to bath with fellow Nagas’ blood. Now, unfortunately, the single NSCN/GPRN produced four NSCNs, namely, NSCN-K, NSCN-IM, NSCN-U and NSCN-Reformation. The formation of NSCN- Reformation was not out of choice but abnormal situation have created it after S.S. Khaplang expelled Y. Wangtin Naga and P. Tikhak, followed by unilateral abrogation of 14 years old cease fire without NSCN party meeting against the wishes of the Naga People. Today, even the NNC/FGN have been divided into seven houses of which NNC/PRN recently merged with NSCN-Reformation. Then who should we blame for all these developments? The leaders of different NPGs should realize their mistakes and begin the process of seeking one another to become one and single force. The unity of the Naga people should precede the independence.

After its formation, the NSCN-Reformation collective leadership undertook its journey of meeting with the leaders of different NPGs and shared the ideas of meeting together in solution table and that was why, the NSCN-Reformation leadership met with NSCN-IM leadership consecutively after Framework Agreement signed between NSCN-IM- GoI on 3rd August 2015 and suggested for wide consultation with all stake holders but the leadership of NSCN-IM have not used their wisdom and have come on their way and continue to stressed on open door policy, which means all the NPGs should join NSCN-IM. The leaders of NSCN-Reformation on the other hand advised the NSCN-IM leaders to consult all the NPGs instead of talking with GoI because it will not be possible to solve Asian longest political problem by talking to GoI alone. If GoI has power to solve the Naga problem, it could have been solved long back during Nehru-Indira periods. The NSCN-Reformation does not demean the Naga Civil Societies but the NPGs who are in battle line should be best consulted but the proud ness and boastful character of NSCN-IM leaders have unshaped the Naga Political situation pushing it to impossibility. While the Naga people disapproved and refused to accept Framework Agreement and factional solution, the NSCN/GPRN-Reformation will also equally disapprove and reject it whatsoever. Therefore, the NSCN-IM leaders should change the present atmosphere by consulting other NPGs.

About Mr. Khole habitual defection, the NSCN-Reformation is in exclamatory mood because, he first defected from NSCN-K claiming that, he wanted Naga unity and formed NSCN-U but one wondered as to how he claimed that, he have defected for Naga unity by disintegrating his own organization (NSCN-K)? The same man once again defected from NSCN-U by betraying good numbers of his followers in Khehoi and joined NSCN-IM. Was it good thing they have done? If he wanted to unify with NSCN-IM, as a President of NSCN-U, he must take all his army and civil authority on board and merge officially shocking every single Naga. On the part of NSCN-IM, it could have been far better to consult with NSCN-U as a whole instead of stealing Mr. Khole alone. All what we did have lacked God’s wisdom. The Shillong Accord of 1975 must be all out condemned because it becomes a bone of contention in Naga National Movement.

In regards to Wokha incident where 28th Assam Rifles attacked and killed NSCN-U Cadres, the NSCN-Reformation condemned the barbaric and uncivilized action of Indian security forces who have no human compunction. The NSCN –Reformation who lost five Naga Armies with five arms in Zeliangrong Region last year in the hands of Indian security forces and inhuman killing of four Naga Army in Changlang District (Arunachal) this year in the hands of merciless Indian Army shared the pain and distresses of the GPRN/NSCN. These act of Indian Army is direct violation of not only ceasefire clause but also disrespect the human rights of the mankind. We need to have equal respect to understand one another to ensure permanent solution.

M.I.P. NSCN/ GPRN (Reformation).
