NSCN-K castigates Hoho for tarnishing Naga image

By Correspondent

DIMAPUR, May 18 � In the aftermath of the May 6 incident at Mao Gate along Nagaland-Manipur border wherein two students were killed and scores other injured in Manipur Police firing, the NSCN-K has castigated the Naga Hoho, the apex Naga organisation, for stirring up �unjustified anger over a tiny issue, tarnishing the image of Nagas in the eyes of the neighbours and Naga well wishers across the globe.�

The NSCN-K in a statement accused the Naga Hoho of �throwing flaming balls into the neighborhood in accordance to the script written by Th Muivah� while regretting that, as an apex body, the Hoho belied expectations of Nagas to display maturity and elderly wisdom.

Noting that the Naga Hoho �in the truest sense� comprised only less than half of the Naga tribes in Nagaland, the NSCN-K flayed the Naga Hoho for press statements, which it said, had �created wider rift among the Nagas and also created much apprehension in the neighbouring States.�

It pointed to the May 9 issue in the local papers where the Hoho�s statement was published under the headline �Manipur Government�s open declaration of war against the Nagas.� Commenting on the Hoho statement, the NSCN-K said �only a group of men having hidden agenda would attempt to whip up people�s sentiments and emotion to suit their own interest�.

While saying it was unfortunate that precious lives were lost (on May 6), the NSCN-K said instead of �declaring vengeance against Manipur on behalf of the Naga people�, the Hoho should have calmed down and see what had �transpired preceding the incident.�

It asked, if Manipur Government has accused Muivah of �committing heinous crimes� in Manipur, did it merit that the Hoho �unilaterally declared war on behalf of all Nagas against Manipur?�

The NSCN-K further asked the Hoho whether it would not have been wiser on its part to �first investigate, whether the accusations against Th Muivah are fabricated or factually true?�

It said all leading Naga and Manipuri organistions �must realise that a man�s entry or exit from his native village is not worth a battle, let alone war�, adding what the Nagas want the Hoho to do was to let �the father and son solve their own domestic issue.�

Further, the NSCN-K said in the event of Manipur resorting to violence against Nagas, the Naga Hoho general secretary and speaker �should bear full responsibility� for this consequence.
