No Pan Naga Hoho without integration, says WC-NNPG
Dimapur, June 21 (EMN): The Working Committee, Naga National Political Groups (WC-NNPG) has said that the Pan Naga Hoho (PNH) is not acceptable to the Naga tribes without integration.
In a press release issued on Tuesday, the group claimed that the proposed Pan Naga Hoho (PNH) is “communist inspired” with a design for people from other states to enter Nagaland through the backdoor in the near future and nationalize private and tribal ancestral properties in the state.
“Today the communist-socialist inspired philosophy from within Nagas, in the form of obnoxious PNH powered by a despicable code called Yehzabo is being marketed in Nagaland. This political philosophy exists only in the imagination of few southern Naga IM (NSCN-IM) leaders. It will have no buyers in Nagaland,” read the statement from WC-NNPG.
It went on to say that “Southern Naga IM leaders have forgotten few basic natural laws of Nagaland in their PNH and Yehzabo plan which even GoI, during negotiations, honoured and acknowledged”.
Maintaining that the GoI had repeatedly said the present boundary of Manipur state would not be disturbed, the WC-NNPG said it had agreed in principle with the GoI to give adequate political space to Nagas of other states without disturbing the state boundaries.
It went on to say that “there are certain inalienable rights of Naga tribes in Nagaland which the Southern Naga leaders within IM must stay away from”, citing indigenous Naga tribes inhabiting particular areas with full community ownership.
“The diversity among Nagas of different states, the ancestral lands and rights cannot be annulled and erased inside a small room in Hebron camp or Delhi through PNH or Yehzabo,” it added.
