Dimapur, April 19 (EMN): The Working Committee, Naga National Political Groups (WC, NNPG) has refuted NSCN (IM)’s recent statement that signing settlement of Naga political issue based on ‘Agreed Position’ would “invite another era of bloodshed”.

“To them (NSCN-IM)we say this, it is the Naga people themselves who have partnered WC,NNPG in the talks, and are demanding and ready to usher in honorable acceptable solution. There will not be another era of bloodshed!” read WC, NNPG’s press release.

Accusing the NSCN (IM) of becoming “a huge profiteering enterprise on the pretext of Naga nationalism”, it said they fear the end of “Nagaland’s wealth” embezzlement with Naga solution.

The WC, NNPG also stated that “all national workers, irrespective of rank and status, must return to their native towns and villages post solution”.

“WC, NNPGs have negotiated and ensured ample political and administrative space in Naga areas outside present Nagaland. This is the only realistic way for Nagas to co-exist in our vast homeland. Nagaland has experienced enough trials and tribulations in the last three decades and has understood what is best for all Nagas,” read the press release.

“Since physical integration is not possible now, the future generations must pursue reintegration with higher vision. In the meantime, one’s own house must be built with one’s own sweat, wood, straw and stones,” it said, adding that Nagaland state doesn’t belong to all Nagas.

While maintaining that it didn’t mean to implicate any particular tribe or entire southern Nagas in Nagaland, Manipur or anywhere, it said the statement was issued to shed light on ground reality and expressed hope that ‘Naga brothers and sisters in Manipur, Arunachal Pradesh and Assam will take it in the right spirit’.
