NSCN (IM) brushes off MNRF

Dimapur, May 9 (MExN): The NSCN (IM) today brushed off the reported new outfit in Manipur called “Manipur Naga revolutionary front,” by stating that the “NSCN does not spend time on such shadowy issue.”

“It is immaterial to the NSCN to give attention to every blabbering of those seeking media attention. Of course, it is often disturbing to the ears but to dig the past, even the recent past will be shameful to few and unpalatable to swallow for many” stated a note from the NSCN (IM) ‘MIP.’ Asserting that “only the parent knows better how difficult it is to deal with a spoil brat,” the note added “we are fully aware of the brain behind it and these are all signs of their desperation.” 

It ‘came with no surprise’ when an ‘acronym, “MNRF” appeared in the media’ it said. The MIP gave the explanation that during the course of more than 60 years of Naga political struggle, ‘adversaries have appeared in different forms in different opportune time to alienate the “true revolutionaries” from the people’. “But the Naga people and the true patriots withstood all those and no more in confusion. And it will continue to happen until a negotiated political settlement is arrived” it added.  

In a separate note, the NSCN (IM) has informed all in concern that the “ministry of information and publicity” (‘MIP’) is the only ‘authentic organ’  of the NSCN (IM) to disseminate information to the Media. “Whereas, the MIP is not aware of the recent press article of the NSCN leaders going to elsewhere foreign countries to lobby for the Naga cause except for the purpose of attending the meeting with the Indian government delegation on the ongoing peace process,” it stated.
