DIMAPUR, Aug 24 - The NSCN-IM has called a Naga consultative meeting with civil society organisations and public leaders from all Naga-inhabited areas in Dimapur on August 25. The meeting will have consultation on the Indo-Naga Peace Accord.
NSCN-IM general secretary Th Muivah, Nagaland�s Lok Sabha MP Neiphiu Rio and some other leaders are scheduled to address the meeting.
Meanwhile, the Sumi Hoho, the apex civil body of Sumi Naga tribe, along with other Sumi frontal organisations has rejected the invitation from NSCN-IM to attend the meeting.
Sumi Hoho secretary Vihuto Asumi, in a press release, informed that based on the January 7, 2014 resolution No. 2, the Sumi public decided to abrogate their relationship with NSCN-IM following the December 21, 2013 Aghuito incident.
Asumi also informed that on August 10, 2015, a meeting was held between Sumi frontal organisations and NSCN-IM led by its kilo kilonser (home minister) RH Raising in Dimapur to resolve the issue. However, the meeting was inconclusive, the Sumi Hoho stated. He further said till such time the issue was resolved between the two sides, Sumi Hoho and its frontal organisations shall not participate in any meeting or programmes organised by NSCN-IM.
In another development, the NNC (Naga National Council) has written a letter to Centre�s interlocutor for Naga talks RN Ravi for his perusal and introspection of the much hyped Naga Peace Accord.
Though indications are given by the Government of India and NSCN-IM that it will be inclusive, it is still a matter of serious speculation about the framework of the agreement to safeguard the rights and aspirations of the Nagas as envisioned by the pioneers of NNC, vice president of the outfit, Thepushuyi S Keyho said in the letter.
The NNC also questioned whether the Government of India is gearing up to repeat another error in history and whether it is too blind to see the truths of history. Is the Government of India still thinking that the aspiration of the Nagas can be forced or bribed into pale silence by special packages, it further asked while asserting that it is not yet prepared at any cost to deviate from the original outcry.
