Kohima, October 17 (NEx): The Working Committee (WC), Naga National Political Groups (NNPGs) condemned the grenade lobbing incident at Dimapur Assam Rifles camp on October 10, 2020.
A press release from Media Cell, WC, NNPGs said that it is deeply shocked and pained at another despicable incident wherein a grenade was reportedly lobbed at Assam Rifles transit camp at Purana Bazar, Dimapur on October 10, 2020. All Nagas, at this hour, must commit themselves to fulfilling common aspiration and violent activities is a direct challenge to our people which deserve mass condemnation, it stated.
The committee states that Naga people are keenly awaiting the honorable and acceptable political solution to the long drawn Indo-Naga political issue. WC, NNPGs, with active support and co-operation from the Naga tribes and civil societies, have exhibited utmost commitment and transparency in relaying the status of the political dialogue, the negotiated points and the political structures post solution in Nagaland as well as in our ancestral lands presently under the states of Manipur, Arunachal Pradesh and Assam.
Peace, like war, must be waged. It is the duty of all tribes and civil societies to retake our towns, villages, colonies from anti-peace elements and criminals. Creating fear psychosis in the garb of National workers should not be tolerated anymore. None should attempt to keep the Naga society at ransom. Those who do not understand the value of peace should not claim Naga future, said the press release.
While acknowledging Naga wellwishers across the globe, the WC said that honorable, acceptable and peaceful political solution will not fly in from USA, UK, Netherlands, Japan or Thailand and the reality is that, the issue is between GOI and the Naga people. With this clarity of thought WC, NNPGs claims it has negotiated with the GOI and confided with the Naga tribes on all negotiated points without ambiguity.
The working committee reiterated that beginning from Agreed Position signed on November 17, 2017, and all along the negotiations, the political and historical identity of the Nagas have been entrenched. We reiterate this truth before God and the Naga people, it added.
