Nagaland: GPRN/NSCN denounces NSCN (IM)’s provocative act
Dimapur, April 1 (EMN): While denouncing the alleged recent persistent and provocation act of the NSCN (IM) cadres under Lotha region, the GPRN/NSCN has questioned the motive and intention of the former and termed that such activities cannot be simply construed as some sporadic exception.
A GPRN/NSCN’s statement through its MIP has claimed that on March 23 at around 4:30 pm, its secretary along with three of his staff were nabbed by the Lotha region cadres of NSCN-IM from Yanmhon village area under Bhandari sub-division with an allegation of interfering in their financial jurisdiction. It stated that with the intervention of Yanmhon Area Lotha Hoho and the village council, the four GPRN members were released in later hours only.
GPRN/NSCN also alleged that on March 30 at around 8:40 pm, its khapur Wobenthung was taken away from his home without any reason and released on the following day after torturing him in a most inhumane way the whole night at their office at Veterinary Colony in Wokha town.
GPRN/NSCN further alleged that on March 31, three NSCN IM cadres of Lotha region went on a spree to nab the commander of GPRN/NSCN Lotha region, who was on leave to be with his family.
Stating that GPRN/NSCN along with the whole Naga people are conscientiously looking forward to maintaining peace and order in the society and pursuing for peaceful coexistence and inculcate understanding amidst the myriad elements of misunderstandings and enmity among the Naga political groups (NPGs) and society alike, it stated that such offensive and vexed activities of the Lotha region of NSCN-IM towards their own blood brethren in their own land was most uncalled-for and disdainful for the Lotha community in general.
It stated that the apparent intent of jeopardising the peaceful efforts of the area people and testing the restraint of GPRN/NSCN deserved to be condemned by everyone including concern community leaders and society.
“One cannot proclaim to champion for the Naga cause and on one hand indulge in to create antagonistic atmosphere and extremity upon its people. Therefore, it is appropriate that Lotha region of NSCN (IM) comes into sense with the ongoing realities and refrain from the mistake of conducting such detrimental acts which would yield best for the benefit and interest of everyone in the region,” the statement said.
