No war with Manipur Govt : NSCN (K)

Dimapur, May 26 2010: NSCN-K or GPRN/NSCN has said that it would like to reassure "our neighbours" that there is no question of Naga people going to war against Manipur State Government.

The NSCN-K said that Mao Gate incident is a reminder that big talks and violence, more often than not, backfires.

"Those insisting on forceful entry to Manipur State should be held solely responsible for the loss of two precious lives on May 6 at Mao Gate.

The emotional spillover in the name of Nagas was enforced when calmness and diplomacy was needed at the hour.

The blood was real but the entire incident was stage managed, programmed and executed solely aimed at whipping up passion for Th Muivah to enter Manipur .

The attempt to label the incident as Naga-Manipur clash is outrageous, asserted the outfit.

The two State Governments of Nagaland and Manipur should ensure that people living in the two States coexist through mutual understanding and brotherhood.

Nagas would sacrifice thousands and more if it is needed to achieve their self determination from the occupational forces but Naga political solution is neither at Mao Gate nor at Somdal in Manipur," said the NSCN-K .

Meanwhile, the NSCN-K said that GPRN/NSCN or NSCN-K "Ato Kilonser" (Prime Minister) N Kitovi Zhimomi and "Gen" Khole Konyak, "Commander-in-Chief", Naga Army, met the Naga Hoho on May 20, at designated "Camp Khehoi" off Dimapur, wherein, the genesis of factionalism, GPRN's stand on the Indo-Naga political conflict, peace, reconciliation and Naga unity and other aspects of the future were discussed in a very accommodative manner.

The Mao Gate fiasco and the Naga Hoho declaration of 8th May were also deliberated.

"On May 22, two days after the Naga Hoho delegation met with the GPRN/NSCN leaders, the same inflammatory declaration was reaffirmed by the Naga Hoho at Kohima.

Of the 17 tribes in the State of Nagaland, only six tribes endorsed the view of Naga Hoho.

It clearly shows very little cohesion and acknowledgment in Nagaland state.

When political circuses such as the one at Mao gate are orchestrated from time to time, instead of being pushed around by Mr.
