NSCN (YA) owns responsibility for the death of former MLA
DIMAPUR — NSCN (YA) has claimed responsibility in the death of Yumsen Matey, former MLA of Khonsa West, Arunachal Pradesh, saying the latter was awarded capital punishment on December 16 allegedly for his active involvement in all sorts of anti-NSCN activities.
An NSCN’s statement through its MIP stated that he was found guilty of masterminding anti-NSCN propagandas and slogans in Tirap district of Arunachal Pradesh. It alleged that he conspired against the NSCN/GPRN and allowed himself to be the tool of the adversaries.
“This act is no less than treason to his own people and to the ongoing Naga national struggle,” the statement read.
It stated that the NSCN/GPRN has exercised maximum patience by overlooking his misdeeds to avoid unwanted situation in the interest of the Naga public for the last few years. However, it claimed that despite several warnings, he continued his illegal activities and went overboard to provoke and compelled the NSCN/GPRN to take the extreme step.
“This case is not in any way related to the upcoming Arunachal state assembly election as some suspected because the NSCN/GPRN will never meddle in a petty Indian state politics,” the statement added.
It further stated that such individuals with anti-Naga characters would not be tolerated and be spared even in the days to come. All his accomplices are sternly warned to desist from anti-NSCN activities or face the same fate.
