Public pressure needed on Naga factions: CFMG

By Correspondent

DIMAPUR, June 10 � The chairman of the Ceasefire Monitoring Group Maj Gen (Rtd) N George has underscored the imperative need for the Naga public to pressurise the insurgent factions towards �certain commitment regarding refraining from violence�.

�There is a need, through the media, to put some public pressure on the groups. It is no point if I have to say that somebody else was responsible for so and so and I have to take action in response,� he told reporters after meeting the CFSB members of NSCN (Khole-Khitovi) at Chumukedima yesterday.

�After all there is a 15-year-old who has been killed in Zunheboto and nobody seems to be affected by it. There is nothing happening. How can this continue? In any civilised society, if you have this kind of killing taking place, somebody should answer to it but out here nothing seems to be happening,� he said.

The chairman said the �CFSB saying something has got limited value but public pressure has got great value.� �This was what I was attempting today. To get them to make certain commitments that would enable us to prevent this violence,� he said.

George said he has been putting across this proposal for some time �where I wanted both the NSCN (K) and NSCN (Khole-Kitovi) to sit across the table with me.�
