NSCN – IM lambasts former Nagaland CM
IMPHAL | Jun 10
Apropos to former Nagaland chief minister, S.C Jamir’s article ‘Nagaland and her political voyage’ published on a local daily in Nagaland, NSCN-IM today stated that the sending of Indian armed forces to Nagalim in 1954 by Jawaharlal Nehru to suppress the sovereign right of the Nagas is a historical fact.
A release issued by ministry of information and publicity stated that though the Nehru government unleashed the most brutal form of oppression and atrocity upon the Nagas, it failed to achieve its goal. His government went even to the extent of formulating colonial policy of suppressing the movement of the Nagas through the Nagas, it said.
Accordingly, the so-called 16-point agreement was made to sign in the stolen name of the Naga people solely with an eye to uproot the movement of the Nagas on the one hand and divide the Nagas on the other, it added.
The release further stated that S.C. Jamir was one of the architects of that agreement. “He was groomed and nurtured by the Government of India with the one-point agenda of crushing the Naga political movement no matter how diabolic it may be. Truly, Jamir inherited the political trait of Nehru and he came down upon the Nagas political struggle no less satanic than Nehru,” it stated.
Further it said, as seen from his narrative, Jamir is crafty enough to touch on Indo-Naga political history again and again, but to rock it in the manner that contradicts the actual political process. The historic Framework Agreement of August 3, 2015 is being handled very cautiously by Government of India and NSCN given the fact that it is a very sensitive and vital issue, it maintained.
It is however, a matter of great indignation that Jamir acted in the manner as if he is privy to the agreement, it further said. “It is an exercise of irresponsibility on the part of Jamir to have taken the liberty of giving his own interpretation on the issues of Naga sovereignty and integration to creating confusion in the minds of the Naga people and the world,” it added.
The fact is that he himself is one high profile Naga leader who sponsored factionalism to serve vested interests, particularly to weaken NSCN, the mainstream organisation, it alleged.
“When Jamir talked of the present predicament faced by the Nagas, his hands are not innocent. Multiple governments and multiple taxations are all rooted in divisive and diabolic policy which he executed with derisive pleasure during his hay time as Nagaland chief minister,” it said.
Talking on Naga political voyage in an evangelical style and shedding crocodile’s tears on disunity among the Naga national workers is but hypocrisy, it stated.
It is painful to recall the horror of brutality of the Indian armed forces under Nehru and a number of innocent Nagas killed through S.C. Jamir’s bloody policy targeting NSCN and its support groups and communities, it said. “However, NSCN has declared its stand that it has forgiven all the past mistakes committed against the people and nation in the name of Jesus. No one should harden his heart against his own people, his own nation and his own children. All Nagas should unite in the declared national line through forgiveness,” it added.
