‘Threat to NPMHR, a time to reflect’

Dimapur, Dec 10 (MExN): Threats and intimidations directed against Naga People’s Movement for Human Rights (NPMHR) are the telling realities to retrospect on its standing and tasks, said Neingulo Krome, first Secretary General of the organization and present Naga Hoho General Secretary. He was addressing the International Human Rights Day observance held at Highway 39 conference hall Dimapur. 

“After 10 years of ceasefire we don’t know if it is moving forward or backward. Threats and intimidations are a reality. Not only are they (underground groups) killing themselves but the church, the NSF and the Naga Hoho is also targeted” he said. “It is time for the NPMHR to retrospect and reflect” Krome reminded. On the stand of Naga organizations vis-à-vis underground groups he opined thus: “We talk about NSCN-IM, NSCN-K, ‘commanders’, and ‘Kilonsers’ but many of them I believe joined only after 1997 and these (those who joined after 1997) are only to bask in the glory of Naga heroes and people who laid down their lives for the people” Krome said reminding that the NPMHR continues to be a strength and an inspiration to the movement and the people.  “We should facilitate understanding that they are leaders of the people” he added.
