Redress ‘final quit notice’ & students’ issue – Naga Hoho to NSCN-K

Dimapur, Jan 31 (MExN): The “final quit notice’ served by the NSCN-K to the Tangkhul community as well as preventing students from the hill districts of Manipur from appearing their academic examinations in  Nagaland is disturbing the minds of every conscious Naga citizen, the Naga Hoho says. The Naga Hoho appeals to the NSCN-K to “redress” the issues in view of larger political ramifications. 

“We issue this statement because we love Nagaland and its people; because we love peace, unity and stability for our country; because we believe in the welfare of our people and above all, because we believe that India does not stand for peace, reconciliation, unity, stability and the development of our country and our people” a Naga Hoho statement issued through its President I Bendangmayang Jamir reaffirmed.

Stating the “final quit notice” and preventing students of the four hill districts of Manipur from appearing their exams in Nagaland by the NSCN-K is disturbing the people, the Hoho said this is a contradiction of the recent historic statement of Ato Kilonser of the NSCN-K N Kitovi Zhimomi. The Hoho quoted the Ato Kilonser’s statement: “…hazardous internecine trends that have developed during these decades of uprising have eventually entrenched the very socio-polity fabric of the Nagas to the point of virtual extinction…and the root cause is the vortex of factionalism in all spheres, which degrades the innate interpersonal chain of brotherhood”. 

The Naga Hoho, reiterating its stand of peaceful existence of all Naga tribes, asked the NSCN-K authorities to “redress the issue in view of larger political ramification”.
