Source: Chronicle News Service

Senapati, May 16 2024: All Naga Students' Association, Manipur (ANSAM) commemorated the 73rd year of Naga Plebiscite Day at Maram Union conference hall, Old Monday Market here on Thursday.

Naga Plebiscite was conducted on May 16, 1951 to reaffirm the declaration of Naga Independence that was announced before the world on August 14, 1947.It was a day when the Nagas portrayed themselves loud and clear with their thumb impres -sions with 99.9 per cent of the Nagas voting for Sovereign Naga Nation.

Speaking on the occasion, ANSAM president Luikang Luckson expressed that observance of the day is a significant one in the history of Southern Nagalim.

While remembering the Naga leaders who made supreme sacrifice for the cause of the nation, the student leader called for opposing and condemning the act of divisive rule and policy of Indian and Burmese governments by disintegrating its territories through artificial boundaries.

The ANSAM president appealed to the central government to explore honourable and acceptable political solution with NSCN7 GPRN by honouring in letter and spirit of the Framework Agreement which was signed on August 3, 2015.The student leader also urged international communities to support and recognise the unique history and sovereign political rights of all the struggling nations to initiate political actions for resolution of the conflict.

Luckson exhorted all to take a resolute stand and march forward in unison to protect and safeguard the people, their land, identity and right without fear and without reproach.

NSCN/GPRN collective leadership member Kraibo Chawang, as a guest speaker of the programme, stated that the there is no record of the Nagas being part of India, not by agreement.

There was a strong wave in 1950 when Sardar Patel, the Iron Man of India, brought 565 princely states under the Indian union.

Nagas were also invited to Shillong in 1951 where the first NNC president refused to be part of the Indian union.

The Nagas fought 11 times against the invasion of the Britishers when they first came to Kohima, reaffirming their stand against colonial rule, he recalled.

The senior leader called for strengthening stand against any force to claim one s rights and properties.

Different Acts were implemented in Naga areas like Disturbed Area Act in 1955, AFSPA in 1958 and Naga Restricted Area of 1963 with an aim to completely sup-press the Nagas.

When God has given one's share, it is the people who must protect, Chawang said.

On dialogue with the government of India, the senior leader said that there is no point of talk and termed it as endless, meaningless and fruitless talk.

Regarding the Framework agreement, government of India is stated to be regretting signing the agreement.

In case the talks fail, there are many International communities like the International Court of Justice in the Netherlands which are very much aware of the agreement, he said.

Chawang lamented that Government of India is trying to run away from the Framework agreement which he called as International documents live telecast in all leading TV news, signed in the presence of the Prime Minister, Union Home Minister, Defence Minister and other designated officials.

The collective leadership member also explained the contents of the Framework Agreement signed in 2015 and further urged all not to be discouraged, adding that God will deliver it when the right time comes.

Representatives of United Naga Council, Naga Women's Union, Naga People's Movement for Human Rights-South, Joint Tribe Council and Chandel Naga People's Organisation shared their solidarity messages during the programme.

Units and subordinate bodies of the ANSAM, tribe Hohos, district apex bodies, Naga churches, politicians, social activists, intellec-tuals and well-wishers attended the programme.
