Dimapur, Oct. 7 (EMN):
The NSCN/GPRN Ao region has called upon the Ao citizens to consciously take a decision to contribute towards finding an honourable and lasting solution to the Indo Naga problem.

In a press release, the CAO of Ao region P Lima Kichu stated that a meeting of the NSCN/ GPRN Ao national workers was held on October 5 in which it was made clear that the ongoing political negotiation between the Naga collective leaders and the government of India (GOI) was for the Naga people living in the Naga ancestral homeland and most importantly for the future generation.

It also mentioned that after many decades of fighting against the Indian military might that tried to suppress the sovereign right of the Nagas, the GoI has finally recognised the “uniqueness of the Naga political history.”
“GoI cannot deny the right of the Nagas using flag and constitution (Yezabo)…. And resolved that no permanent solution on the Indo-Naga political issue can be settled without retaining the Naga flag and constitution as part of our historical and political rights,” it said, adding “all those struggles and sacrifices should not be misunderstood or underestimated by any individuals/ organisations,” the statement read.
In this connection, it informed all the Ao citizens that no individuals/ organisations are assigned to carry out any specific mission by the undersigned authority.

Further, it made clear that no individual or organisation has the right to stop the democratic exercise of any citizen or organisation.

“Any organisations/ individuals trying to sabotage the democratic process of the Indo-Naga political dialogue by putting sanctions and trying to suppress people’s voice will not be acceptable,” it cautioned.

It also reaffirmed to extend its unflinching support to the two Ao collective members under the NSCN/GPRN government and expressed appreciation to all citizens for extending support towards the ongoing political process.

The statement also mentioned that it would stand by its earlier resolutions dated 27/08/2015 and 16/09/2020, which were published in Ao vernacular newspapers.
