Sept Joint Accordant: Defining Moment of 2022 For Nagas
The signing of the September Joint Accordant between the NSCN (IM) and the NNPGs through the effort of Forum for Naga Reconciliation (FNR) is the defining moment of the year 2022 for the Naga people.
This turnaround is what the Nagas have been longing and praying for—to stand together as one people and work with a unity of purpose towards our rightful place.
The Naga Rising extends deep appreciation to Team FNR under the able-leadership of Rev Dr Wati Aier for successfully mediating between the Naga Political Groups (NPGs) despite the existing trust deficit and divisions.
We applaud the humility and courage exhibited by leaders of the NSCN (IM) and NNPGs to have come out in public to admit that they have ‘differences’, yet displaying the foresight to engage in dialogue and committing to move forward in nation building.
We welcome the resolve of the NPGs to honour the Covenant of Reconciliation of June 13, 2009 signed by Late Isak Chishi Swu, Late SS Khaplang and Brig (Retd) S. Singnya. It has instilled new hope in the midst of the present confusion and divide.
Much expectation remains on the NPGs to put words into action and to fulfil the public resolve made on September 14, 2022.
