Kohima, June 11 � Two days after his expulsion from Khole-Kitovi group of NSCN, its former chairman has come up with counter-expulsion orders against senior functionaries of GPRN/NSCN terming it as an �unification group�, indicating further splits in the Naga insurgent outfit.
Using the nomenclature of National Socialist Council of Nagaland and addressing himself as its chairman, S S Khaplang yesterday issued two expulsion orders � one for general secretary N Kitovi Zhimomi and the other for �kilo kilonser� (home minister) Azheto Chophy and six other functionaries of GPRN/NSCN.
The expulsion orders, issued to the media through P Tikhak who termed himself as �spokesperson of NSCN(K),� described the expelled functionaries as �members of the unification camp� and said they were expelled for their �anti-party activities�.
The GPRN/NSCN on June 8 had impeached and expelled its chairman Khaplang, a Hemi Naga from Myanmar, for his alleged dictatorial leadership and nominated C-in-C Khole Konyak as acting chairman of the outfit. �This decision (to expel the senior functionaries) was taken at a meeting of NSCN(K)�s council headquarters in Pangmi region of Myanmar chaired by Khaplang yesterday,� a release said.
While expelling Khaplang from the chairmanship, the national assembly of GPRN/NSCN had declared Khehoi-designated camp its general and council headquarters from now onwards and accused the expelled chairman as the main stumbling block in the on-going Naga re-conciliation process initiated by Forum for Naga Re-conciliation (FNR).
The counter-expulsion orders from Khaplang also announced NSCN(K)�s withdrawal from the on-going Naga re-conciliation process, saying the other group (NSCN-IM) involved in the initiative was not serious and committed.
�The NSCN pulled out of the re-conciliation process not because it was against it, but because of the intentional violation of the resolved resolution by the other participating group,� the statement said.
Khaplang said, �On sensing their hidden agenda, we declare to fight them tooth and nail and even to this day the NSCN cadre are fighting the reactionary forces in eastern Nagaland as well as in Tirap and Changlang districts of Arunachal Pradesh and Southern Nagaland.�
�But Kitovi Zhimomi has been found watching leisurely in so-called state of Nagaland and not doing enough in the interest of the NSCN...Thus, as per party discipline Zhimomi is found guilty,� the order said. � PTI
