DIMAPUR, Aug 22 - The NSCN (Khole-Kitovi) has said it will not accept �imposition� of NSCN-IM peace deal in Nagaland because the political future of tribes of Nagaland is best understood and to be decided by them alone.
The NSCN-KK led by its chairman Khole Konyak and general secretary N Kitovi Zhimomi asserted that the people of Nagaland will not embrace the �undignified peace accord� and said Nagas of Nagaland cannot be sacrificed to fulfil the political aspiration and desire of Nagas from other neighbouring States, the outfit said in a release.
Khole and Kitovi made the statement in the backdrop of the Naga Peace Accord signed between the Government of India and the NSCN-IM in New Delhi on August 3.
On what was described as �historic� peace accord, the NSCN-KK said the Nagaland Government was forced to smile and applaud while Naga Hoho had long �sold its soul to the devil, with each member expecting a ticket to Heaven�.
It said the accord was celebrated joyously and rightly so by Nagas in Manipur but strangely, inhabitants of Nagaland �are eerily silent� even as academicians and patriotic farmers had little reason to be optimistic. �The pertinent question is � for whom is the accord historic?� the NSCN-KK asked.
�GPRN/NSCN shall, however, respect and appreciate any political arrangement or accord that recognises Naga ethnicity, history, culture and which improves the living standard of our brethren in Manipur, Assam, Arunachal Pradesh and Myanmar,� the release stated.
�SS Khaplang�s agreement with Union of Myanmar is therefore acknowledged for it is changing the lives of Naga brethren living in Myanmar for the better.�
The NSCN-KK also said when Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh and MoS for Home Kiren Rijiju assured Chief Ministers of Assam, Manipur and Arunchal that the present boundaries would not be altered, the statements of Th Muivah or VS Atem that integration was alive �sounds absurd and stupid�.
The NSCN-KK further said it had conveyed to the Government of India that without assessing the pulse on the ground, solution to the seven-decade-old Naga political issue �would not emerge through a photo session with the leadership of one group.�
