The area of Ceasefire coverage which has been the bone of contention between the NSCN (IM) and the Government of India finally spilled over with the NSCN (IM) walking out of the Ceasefire meeting held at Police Complex, Chumukedima, on Thursday.
Talking to media persons after walking out of the meeting, Convenor of the Ceasefire Monitoring Cell (CFMC), NSCN (IM), Kraibo Chawang, said the NSCN (IM) disagreed with the meeting mainly on two issues – the ceasefire coverage and the summons issued to NSCN leaders by the National Investigation Agency (NIA).
“On the ground, these (GoI representatives) are the people who should create a conducive atmosphere for solution, but we find it very difficult when the Ceasefire Monitoring Group (CFMG) Chairman says that the ceasefire does not extend beyond the State of Nagaland. That is an insult to the whole Naga people,” Chawang said.
Chawang said NSCN (IM) leaders Isak Chishi Swu and Th. Muivah are not fighting for the cause of the people of Nagaland only but for the people of all Naga inhabited areas.
The other issue, Chawang said, is the summoning of NSCN leaders including Chairman, Isak Chishi Swu; General Secretary, Th. Muivah and Emissary to the NSCN (IM) collective leadership, VS Atem.
The CFMC Convenor disclosed that recently more than 20 members of the NSCN (IM), including the top leaders, have been summoned by the NIA to appear in its court on the pretext that the Naga leaders were waging war against the Union of India.
“But the fact is that NSCN has been struggling with arms and because of this there is a ceasefire,” Chawang said. He reminded that the Government of India and NSCN (IM) has signed the ceasefire agreement as two entities.
Pointing out that imposition of Indian laws was not acceptable to the Nagas, he said Naga people would now decide on the future course of action.
Chairman of the CFMG/CFSB, Lt Gen (retd) NK Singh, admitted that the NSCN (IM) members had walked out of the meeting on the issues of ceasefire coverage and summoning of their leaders by NIA. “I told them that my jurisdiction as CFMG Chairman is only in the State of Nagaland,” Singh said. The CFMG chairman further stated that, in the meeting, the NSCN (IM) leaders “did not agree to stop extortion.”

  • Ameingam Shimray In Nagaland, Assam n arunachal, the Nagas blood r not boiling bt remains silent. Only in manipur there is boiling in some Naga areas. Even if Paul Muinao is elected from Chingai Constituency on NPF ticket due to Muivah -Muinao clans relationship he would nt b able to do much. During election campaign when he pronounced his name as POR how far can Paul influence the meitei n Assam riffle n Indo Naga peace talk.?
