DIMAPUR, Sept 14 - Forum for Understanding Naga-India Conflict and Human Rights (FUNICH) convener Lakpachui Siro raised critical points to the demand for inclusive political talks by six Naga Political Groups (NPGs) supported by Naga Tribal Council (NTC) and Against Corruption and Unabated Taxation (ACAUT) Nagaland.
According to a press release issued by Media and Publicity Wing of FUNICH, Siro stated that the leadership and organisation have continuously displayed their moral political ground based on the Naga historical and political rights as one people.
In their long political struggles they have remained steadfast in their commitment and conviction to the Naga people�s political rights.
The leadership led by Th Muivah and late Yaruiwo Isak Swu have strengthened the Naga people�s struggle for political justice by condemning the creation of Nagaland State in 1963, which is not Nagaland in true sense as it encompasses only a small portion of Nagaland and their political aspirations completely ignored, he said.
The FUNICH further mentioned that under the leadership of Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Th. Muivah, solution based on shared sovereignty is worked out and accordingly Framework Agreement was signed in 2015.
Now, it is clear that the solution is bound to come soon as it is the best interest of Government of India and Naga people, it said.
�Let us also remember that a large number of Nagas from the present Nagaland State remained silent or supported the Shillong Accord. It was only because of few leadership and their supporters; whether be it from Southern Nagalim or the present Nagaland State or other Naga areas that have saved the Naga people�s political rights,� the release stated.
The FUNICH further stated that when two negotiating parties are about to conclude 20 years of political talks with great sense of maturity and patience, there is a rising sectarian agendas raised by newly formed six NNPGs with the support of the newly formed NTC and ACAUT.
