Dimapur, Oct. 22 (EMN): The NSCN (IM) has ruled out dropping the ‘agreed principle of honourable and acceptable solution’ for the sake of comprising with contemporary reality, even as its negotiators are set to meet with interlocutor RN Ravi for yet another round of Indo-Naga talks on October 24.

In a statement issued on Tuesday, the Naga group maintained that ‘political decency and Naga sentiment’ cannot be simply discarded ‘in the name of going along with contemporary reality’.

“Unfortunately, the government of India’s insincere approach has brought down the Indo-Naga political talks to this level. Going further to push the Machiavellian handling of Naga political issue, the government of India machinated the use of primary stakeholders by adopting ‘yes men groups’ and ignoring the others,” it alleged.

However, it claimed, in the ‘absence of majority Naga tribal groups, these so-called primary stakeholders’ is not only a misnomer but also against the Naga’s democratic practice.

“This is simply sowing the seed of division in the name of pushing Naga solution without getting the mandated blessing. Strange is the way the government of India represented by Ravi handled the Naga political issue by blaming the NSCN negotiators for practicing procrastinate (sic) negotiation.

“It matters Naga’s pride and identity. It matters Naga’s future and security. It matters Naga’s covenant with God. And, this is the reason why Nagas are sentimentally attached with flag and constitution,” it stated.
