DIMAPUR, April 24 � As expected, the return of SC Jamir to Nagaland politics is starting to create ripples.

The former Nagaland Chief Minister is currently campaigning for the May 7 Aonglenden Assembly constituency by-poll which he is contesting.

In every public meeting, Jamir has been advocating to shun the gun culture in Nagaland. He has also been saying that decades of conflicts among the Nagas have resulted in creating more divisions and miseries in the Naga society. He predicted that if this trend continues, the future of Nagaland is bleak.

The NSCN-IM has accused Jamir and his younger brother Sungit Jamir, who is the president of Nagaland Pradesh Congress Committee of attemptinng to tarnish the Naga outfit. On Thursday, the NSCN-IM refuted reports that the outfit was planning to assasinate Jamir.

The NSCN-IM further stated that it questions the intentions of New Delhi �for engaging with us to finalise the Indo-Naga political issue while conniving with the likes of SC Jamir who had spent his entire life bargaining the rights of the Naga people and its nation for his position. We strongly demand that the Union Home Ministry clear its position too�.

The Isak-Muivah group of the NSCN has often accused the Congress stalwart of trying to sabotage the Naga peace process. Jamir, who was the first Lok Sabha MP from Nagaland in 1961, became the Chief Minister of the State for the first time in 1980. He became the Chief Minister for the fifth term in 1998.

In the dramatic change of political scenario of Nagaland in the 2003 Assembly election, his �Man Friday� in Neiphiu Rio who was the �No. 2� in Jamir�s Ministry dethroned him. Since then Jamir had gone for �political hibernation�.

The decision of Jamir to contest the by-poll next month is seen as a preparation for the next Nagaland Assembly election due in two year�s time. At present, the Neiphiu Rio-led Naga People�s Front is running the government with its alliance after christening it as Democratic Alliance of Nagaland for the consecutive second term.
