Ever since the formation of the Naga National Council (NNC) on 2nd February 1946, it became the Naga political institute and the main platform to defend and assert our God given rights to this day. Under the aegis of the NNC, Naga Independence was formally declared on the 14th August, 1947 and the historic popular Plebiscite was conducted on the 16th May ,1951. We expect India to admit these realities and sincerely come forward to settle the issue of Naga Sovereignty amicably and honorably but which India refuse to do so far.

Naga’s right for self-determination cannot be compromised under a mere so called ‘final agreement’ that would contain our inherent right to sovereignty under any countries’ constitution. The Nagas will not be intimidated to a fringed insignificance by the Indian Government for too long. The NNC has always stood for the true cause of the Naga people and thus we will act according to the mandate of the people. The principle of the NNC is based on non-violence. It has always stood for the legitimate rights and aspiration of the Nagas to exist as a Nation among the Nations of the world.

At this juncture of the on going talks between the 6NNPGs and the Government of India there is much speculation and confusion among the Nagas. Therefore, it had become necessary on my part to clarify and declare that under the leadership of the President, NNC General (Retd) T.M Keyho. We are committed to uphold and defend Naga sovereignty to the end. The NNC will never involve in any talks for solution within Indian constitution. Further, I call our people to ponder carefully and come forward to strengthen Naga cause together.

TS Keyho
Vice President (NNC)
