DIMAPUR, AUGUST 13 (MExN): The Naga Students’ Federation (NSF) today extended Independence Day greetings to the Naga People living in different parts of the world. “Today marks the 73rd year of the founding father of the great Naga nation declaring the length and breadth of Nagalim free from any occupational and imperialist forces and the NSF joins the Naga people in taking forward and upholding this historic day,” a press release from the NSF said.
The August 14 celebration, it said, is “not a sign of defiance of any forces on earth but a peaceful assertion of our legitimate rights based on historical facts.”
Urging the youth in particular and the entire Naga populace to remain united, the NSF asked them to be “watchful of the policies and actions of our enemies who are leaving no stones unturned to divide the Naga people.” “Let us all rise above our isms, love each other unconditionally, accept each other’s weaknesses and together with God strive towards our ultimate destination,” it added.
