However, according to the MIP, the most serious violation of set-up law of the revolutionary government was his ulterior motive to form parallel organization. It added “with that, devilish plan, he forced Tuitimiu Makury, chairman Makury Region to hand over all arms from eastern sector and convinced him to form parallel organization. But, Tuitimiu chairman Makury Region refused to hand over any arms saying that, the arms belong to the government and not Army Chief.”

The authority of NSCN (R) has tendered unqualified apology to the Naga nation in general and to workers in particular for having conferred a highest position to such “un-reliable person to lead the Naga Army.” It also apologized to Pochury community for going such extreme action on Maj Gen Jackson Pochury and requested the tribe leaders not to misconstrue this action as discrimination or targeting the Pochury tribe, it stated.
