NSCN (R) wants civil societies, churches to intervene
Dimapur, Aug. 25 (EMN): To settle the renewed tension between NSCN ((IM) and NSCN (R), the latter has sought the help of ‘all the important civil societies and churches.’
In a statement issued on Sunday, the president of NSCN (R) Wangtin Naga maintained that the killing of NSCN (IM) ‘Maj.’ Toishe on August 16 as well as the attempt on the life of NSCN (R) ‘kilonser’ Khekhato on August 20 were uncalled for.
He stated that the NSCN (R) harbours ‘no negative intention towards any Naga brothers’ and there was no reason for its members to take the life of any Naga at this juncture.
According to him, all right-thinking Nagas should ‘deliver impartial investigation report’ in order to peacefully resolve the tension between the two groups. He assured impartial judgement to any NSCN (R) member found guilty of involvement in the murder of Toishe.
However, till such report is established, he appealed to the NSCN (IM) leadership to display maturity by refraining from taking any further steps. He appealed to “all important civil societies and churches to go into a deep investigation of the incident to resolve the issue before it goes out of hands.”
