NSCN-IM urges Nagas to reaffirm to protect their land
Source: The Sangai Express

Imphal, July 09 2015 : The NSCN-GPRN has urged all the Naga civil societies, students and intellectuals not to remain silent but put up strong fight to the 'naked attempt' to steal their land and identity by their neighbours.

A statement issued by the MIP of NSCN-GPRN affirmed that they will live and die to protect their land, people and their political rights while urging the Nagas to reaffirm to hold their ground for their land. Naga people have their ancient land holding supremacy over wherever they are even today.

The legitimacy of Naga nationhood is no longer questioned because for one priority issue the governing dogma over land established on traditional belief of creation-creator world view is as primordial and as redemptive as any judicial system in existence today, the NSCN-IM statement said.

There is no pact to bother that lands of the Naga people is part of Union India or, for that matter, the former Burma.

The political rights of the Naga as a free people are incorruptibly established all along this lengthened peace process between the Government of India and Government of the People's Republic of Nagalim.

Recognition of the truth as it is, therefore, never interferes with self-centered interests of states that came into existence without informed consent and acceptance of the Naga people.

Such a marked shift of perception from both the parties as to adopt total cessation from armed confrontation represents a paradigm that is urgently needed everywhere where there is conflict of interest on different scale, it said.

The Joint-Council of July 2, 2015: Council Headquarters, reaffirmed to zealously safeguard against violent elements to undermine political legitimacy that has long sustained a conflict such as the Indo-Naga case, it said.

Trust, total commitment, understanding and the resolve to embrace lasting peace both by the Naga people and the Government of India evokes a strong sense of appreciation today.

Despite differences of opinion the Naga leaders' yesterdays have faithfully lived this legacy under cruel and variable circumstances ever since the Naga undividedly determined to retain their right to self-determine their political future.

It is this resoluteness of the Naga people that has survived trials of extreme; 'we dare not deter and allow immature thoughts to upset the promise of new set of life in view now.' Any intruding administrative demarcations over the lands of the Naga people wherever they are today should never be allowed to decide the fate of the Nagas.

"We must fully claim what is ours.

We do not covet others," it said.

Imposed boundaries that severely affect the Nagas where they are today as minorities and exploited can never be the criteria for negotiation; neither any race nor usurped system can rewrite the history of the Naga people to assume sanctity of their convenience to which the Naga people have undeservingly served to suffer for such long time.

NSCN will fight tooth and nail any diabolic policies being employed by States where Nagas are in minority.

Policies of deliberate land grabbing administrative mechanism at work in the State like Manipur and Assam must cease immediately, it demanded.

Influx of outsiders in NC Hills and Naga Rengma Hills in Assam, population transfer of Bangladeshi, Biharis etc in Naga areas of Assam and in Nagaland bordering Assam is nothing but to destabilise indigenous Naga population and create "dumping zone" of non-Nagas in Naga territory.

Moreh in Chandel district has been forcefully occupied by non Nagas.

Yangpokpi areas and many other Tangkhul villages have been included into Imphal police districts designed to expand Meitei territory, it posited.

4-tier management of "New land use policy" propounded by Manipur State Government, all in the name of development is symptomatic of manufactured policy forwarded to interfere with indigenous land holding tradition and village republicanism directly impeding old age governance over Naga ancestral habitats.

Deployment of massive military population in a small district like Tamenglong is indicative of land grabbing policy, the statement said.

Despite the numerous security forces stationed, many illegal fronts antagonist to Naga unity and political movement are being allowed to roam freely, establish camps and flourish.

Creation of Sadar Hills district by carving out of Senapati district in Manipur are another open instance of usurping Naga territory by instigating communal rivalry with other tribal inhabitants.

Government of Arunachal needs to be cautious while dealing with the issue of "Naga Identity", the statement said.

The ongoing effort to dilute and delete the word "Naga" from the five Naga tribes ie, Nocte, Ollo, Tangsa, Tutsa and Wangcho which occupies the three Naga district of Tirap, Changlang and Longding is seriously viewed and stand unacceptable, the NSCN-IM statement added.
