NNPGs respond to NNC CRC
Dimapur, Feb. 17 (EMN): In a counter rejoinder, working committee (WC) of the Naga National Political Groups (NNPGs) has termed the statement of Chakhesang regional council of the NNC “too narrow and bereft of facts, arguably an opinion of some misguided elements” to insult the great Chakhesang pride in the context of Naga national movement.
WC NNPGs statement, through its media cell, claimed that it transcends region, tribe or community because it owes its existence to all Naga tribes. The statement also clarified that WC NNPGs, from the very beginning of the political negotiations with the GOI, have clearly laid out the agreed principle signed on November 17, 2017, on which the talks would be based. It added that the essence and spirit of Naga plebiscite of May 16, 1951, is clearly retained and entrenched.
The statement also stated that the negotiations between GOI and NNPGs is between two entities i.e, Nagas and Indians, adding it has the solidarity and prayer support of all Nagas as seven NNPGs are involved in the talks on behalf of Nagas, in which Chakhesang leaders are among the most vocal in the negotiating table.
It has advised to avoid statements that do not conform to reality at this juncture as WC, NNPGs do not feel it right that few members from Chakhesang community calling themselves NNC, CRC, would seek to malign and demean the great contribution of the Chakhesangs in the Naga political struggle.
“None should attempt to belittle the enormous responsibility admirably being discharged by esteemed Chakhesang leaders in the ongoing political dialogue between NNPGs and GOI,” the statement added.
