‘One Nagaland’: ‘Eastern’ NSCN-IM leaders reaffirm

Dimapur, July 19 (MExN): The threat of a separate state or ‘union territory’ within the already strife-torn Nagaland has led NSCN-IM leaders from the so-asserted “Eastern” Nagaland to reaffirm in one, complete, proper Nagaland. Twenty-two NSCN-IM leaders from Tuensang, Mon, Longleng and Kiphire districts today issued a joint statement opposing any idea, program, policy or ideology to further disintegrate the Naga homeland in any way, whether as a ‘union territory’ or a separate state.  “We will take such move as anti-Naga activities instigated by the enemies and hence we will not be held responsible for any consequences that would follow” the NSCN-IM leaders warned. They reminded that the Nagas, as a people have been fighting for the last 60 years to live together with dignity and honor among the nations. “…all Nagas are deadly against all artificial boundaries including the so-called international boundaries between Myanmar and India” they stated adding that a solution for the Naga issue from the GoI-NSCN(IM) talks is “at the doorstep.”
