NNC/FGN urges non-interference
Dimapur, Sep. 27 (EMN): NNC/FGN has urged other political groups not to interfere in its affairs nor drag the names of its functionaries with the intention to mislead the public just to gain publicity and to suit their vested interests.
NNC/FGN issued a statement in response to a news report in which the NNC claimed to have elected an interim president (kedahge) during an emergency national hoho on September 23. The NNC had claimed that the meeting was held “in view of the constitutional crises created by the kedahge Brig. S Singya implicating the NNC and FGN in the ongoing talks with India for a solution under India.”
In a clarification, FGN cabinet secretary Ghuvishe V Zhimomi stated that NNC/FGN has no objection or any problem whatsoever in the particular NNC group to appoint/ elect anybody as their interim kedahge or even kedahge. However, as the NNC/FGN do not interfere in the functioning of other political groups, it urged any splinter groups not to interfere in its affairs nor drag in the name of any of its functionaries with the intention to mislead the public and to suit their vested interests.
It also stated that there was no constitutional crisis whatsoever as the activities and functioning of the government are guided by the constitutional provisions of the Yehzabo of Nagaland. It clarified that Kedahge of NNC/FGN is duly elected according to the constitutional provisions adhering to all norms and conventional practices based on Article 20 of the Yehzabo of Nagaland which states, “The kedahge shall be elected by an electoral college consisting of the elected members of the tatar hoho.”
On the ongoing talks with the government of India, it stated that the NNC/FGN, as a part of the NNPG with the approval and consent of the council of kilonsers and duly endorsed by the tatar hoho, had signed the preamble with GoI.
It reminded that the 66th tatar hoho at resolution point No.1 appreciated the signing of the agreed positions between government of India and the NNPG on resolution of Naga political issue which was signed on November 17, 2017, by GoI and NNPG working committee. It added that during the 66th and 68th tatar hoho, it unanimously resolved to support the ongoing peace talk between the GoI and the NNPG.
It, therefore, stated that the NNC/FGN is continuing the dialogue with the GoI to arrive at an honourable and mutually acceptable settlement. It further urged any self respecting political group to refrain from trying to drag in the name of any NNC/FGN functionary just to gain mileage.
