DIMAPUR, Nov 22 - In the backdrop of signing of the �Framework Agreement� between NSCN-IM and Government of India in New Delhi on August 3, NSCN-KK (GPRN/NSCN) has mooted a separate agenda for the betterment of Nagas of Nagaland. It has also proposed an �alternative� solution with Government of India for the future Naga generation.
Addressing the 8th Naga Unification anniversary celebration at their designated camp at Khehoi, around 25 kms from here today, NSCN-KK ato kilonser (prime minister) Kitovi Zhimomi said if the August 3 agreement is good for the Nagas of Manipur, then they have no issue with it. But for the Nagas of Nagaland, especially the younger generation, there is a need for a separate plan for their well-being as they have nothing to do with the said agreement, he stated.
�While Nagas in four Naga-inhabited districts of Manipur celebrated the August 3 agreement by lighting candles throughout the night, the Nagas of Nagaland were kept in the dark about it,� Zhimomi pointed out. He also said Centre�s interlocutor RN Ravi has said the Nagas of Manipur are demanding greater autonomy. Therefore, he stated that the Nagas of Nagaland have no business with the said agreement.
Referring to his meetings with NSCN-IM general secretary Th Muivah on Naga reconciliation earlier, Zhimomi said the latter made it clear that there could be no �inclusive� solution to the Naga political problem and integration of Naga-inhabited areas is not possible at this juncture. Therefore, he stressed that the Nagas of Nagaland should stand for themselves considering the future of the younger generation.
Besides Naga civil societies, GBs and some student orgsanstions, the unification anniversary was attended by the leaders of other Naga underground factions such as NNC, FGN, NNC (N/A) who vowed for reconciliation among Nagas.
The NSCN-IM in a statement on Friday had expressed concern that the GPRN/NSCN anniversary celebration would discuss the Framework Agreement and mislead the people. It also asked Nagas to be cautious of �rumours�.
