DIMAPUR, April 7 � The NSCN(K) has cautioned people of Nagaland against tax collection by its breakaway faction.
In a statement today, the NSCN(K) alleged that Y Wangtin Naga in no less than a week after his expulsion from the outfit, has started issuing notices all over Nagaland to pay donation and taxes levied by NSCN(K). The outfit warned it will not take into account any form of transaction with Wangtin Naga.
�True to his nature as a con artist and master fraudster, in no less than a week after his expulsion from the GPRN, Wangtin Naga has started issuing notices to government department heads, business communities and sympathisers in Nagaland to pay him donations,� the NSCN(K) said.
�Such is a quality of a person who claims to be a crusader of peace and reconciliation and has been fooling Nagas ever since,� the statement said.
Nine days after their expulsions from the NSCN(K) by its chairman SS Khaplang, former Cease Fire Supervisory Board (CFSB) members of the outfit Y Wangtin Naga and P Tikhak have formed the National Socialist Council of Nagaland (Reformation) at a �joint council meeting� in Mon under the chairmanship of Y Wangtin Naga.
Disclosing this in a joint statement on Monday, Wangtin and Tikhak said the meeting attended by members of both Naga army and civil setup unanimously resolved to form NSCN(R).
They said when the Nagas are praying and fasting ceaselessly to God for peace that had been evasive for more than half a century, it was understandable that Nagas would not accept another new outfit when there were already a plethora of Naga political groups.
Further, Y Wangtin Naga and P Tikhak said they had no choice when a situation arose where they had to fend for themselves and accommodate their followers.
The duo said their primary agenda is to develop brotherhood among the Naga family and rebuild the trust and faith among Naga society so as to give an opportunity for peace, progress and prosperity of the Naga people and to all like-minded people, NGOs, social organisations, intellectuals and leaders of various tribal councils to share their ideas to build a renewed Naga society. They said their humble effort was to run the party without becoming a liability to the people.
