The NSCN-IM on Saturday condemned the Indian Intelligence agencies for linking the outfit’s general secretary and chief negotiator to Chinese factor to “question his integrity”.
The MIP of the outfit in a statement said, “We reject outright such manipulative manner of media report targeting Mr. Th. Muivah to question his sincerity and commitment”.
The outfit claimed that wild media speculation with vested interests are on the rise as the Indo-Naga political talks gained momentum and at the threshold of signing the final deal.
“It is unfortunate that certain elements are at work to sow seeds of suspicion and undo the hard earned achievement. We believe this is the handiwork of suspicious mindset emanating from panic analysis of Indo-Naga political talks led by NSCN Talk Team with General Secretary Mr. Th. Muivah as the Chief Negotiator”, it said.
The NSCN-IM said that for building a lasting peace the Government of India and NSCN need complete faith on each other without giving any room for doubt and other unfounded Intelligence agencies wild analysis and baseless calculations.
“No sacrifice comes too big for the Naga people to pave the way for the final settlement that is honorable and acceptable. But for all purpose this is not the right time to throw in unhealthy opinions with the ulterior motive to fracture the hard earned peace process when the propitious moment is round the corner”, it said.
For accommodation convenience all members of NSCN involved in the peace talk cannot be made to stay in one location in Delhi. It is, however, wrong on the part of the media to build ridiculous conjecture that NSCN members are not of one mind, it contended. We condemn such a baseless allegation which is intended to send confusing signal to the outside world, said the outfit.
