NISC asks NSCN-K to spell out agenda for Naga solution

By Oken Jeet Sandham - Asian Tribune

Kohima, 05 Marrch, ( The Amsterdam-based Naga International Support Center, NISC, asked the NSCN (Khaplang) to spell out their political agenda as to how they would bring solution to the Naga political issue, when they did not fight against the so-called their "enemy-the Indian government."

In an open letter to the NSCN-K, the NISC explained about the contradictions of the outfit that at one point it claimed that Indian Government was their enemy, occupying the "land of the Nagas"; on the other they did not engage in driving out its armed forces. Strangely, the outfit did not try to meet the Indian leaders to "negotiate" for an "honorable settlement" either, argued the open letter.

The Rights body also asked the outfit to come forward with "credible policies" to achieve "sovereignty" on behalf of all Nagas and with whom they aspired and planned to achieve their desired goal.

The open letter reminded that the Nagas had been fighting against their invaders for long, while some, through money, weapons and imposition of statehood, had sided with their adversaries. They made life difficult for the "civil society and the Naga forces", it stated, asking the outfit to come together as one to "sincerely pursue the goals of what the NNC once stood for, to stand for the sovereignty of the Naga people."

The NISC body said it supported the right of self-determination of all Nagas, including the NSCN-K. They also said it would happily discuss matters with the outfit when the latter kindly revoked the "death threat" served to them.
