The Danger of Playing into the Enemy’s Hands Through Piecemeal Solutions
There can be no greater treachery in the history of a nation then the treachery of a few of its citizens betraying a nation’s identity through piecemeal solutions with the enemy. But some present Naga leaders seems to be playing such a game by having secret talks with the government of India behind the backs of the general Naga public. This is the exact case, because though more than twenty years have passed since the third peace talks began, the Naga public still do not know about even a sentence of what agreements these Naga leaders have made with the GOI.
Looking back at our history, when the whole nation rallied behind the NNC and its Plebiscite of 1951, we proved ourselves a formidable foe against all that mighty India and Burma could throw against us. The tragedy began, when some of our own leaders walked away from that formidable NNC rock and formed their own Revolutionary Government. This tragic event happened even as the then 1964 Indo-Naga ceasefire was still ongoing. Further tragedy was ushered in when some other leaders yet again, launched another` revolutionary government in 1980. This was done despite the fact that Zashei Huire, the then President of the FGN had rejected the 1st and 3rd clauses of the Shillong Accord of 1975. Today, besides the originally mandated NNC and FGN, there are seven other splinter groups. Now, if these splintered groups- however well-armed and well organized they may be- will have piecemeal solutions with the Indian government, they could very well betray the original stand of the NNC and FGN which is complete sovereignty and independence of the nation.
As for the original NNC and FGN, despite all the storms of betrayal and fratricidal killings that have overtaken the nation, the NNC and FGN still continues to uphold the sovereignty and independence of the nation which was declared on 14th August 1947. As for this original NNC, there exist no such other bodies called “NNC Parent Body” or “NNC Son Body”!! The one and only NNC was established on 2nd Feb. 1946 to become the political institution of the Naga people. This political institution belongs to all the citizens of Nagaland and can never be hijacked or impersonated by any political groups or parties whatsoever.
