IMPHAL, March 4 � Even as the Centre and NSCN-IM continued talks in the national capital with sovereignty for Nagaland and integration of Naga-inhabited areas being the key points, another Naga insurgent group, National Socialist Council of Nagaland -Khaplang (NSCN-K) said no solution can be achieved on the issue unless all Naga groups are involved.
�Unless all Naga political groups are involved, there would be no permanent acceptable solution�, MIP (Ministry of Information and Publicity) of NSCN-K said. An e-mail statement here said, �A time has come to redefine Naga political struggle through common vision and approach.�
The outfit claimed Th Muivah declared that except IM, all other Naga political groups are unmandated and therefore to include them would dilute his achievements and added that 13 years of fruitless political dialogue is never an achievement by any stretch of imagination.
Conceding to arrangements such as autonomy or economic packages is unacceptable, the organization said, �That a section of people gave their support to IM to push the sovereignty issue but instead, a 32-point charter of demands was made to GoI and not an iota of sovereignty issue is found mentioned.�
It further added on behalf of all Nagas who wish for solution of the Naga political problem once and for all, we declare that Nagas in the last 60 years have never once substituted Naga sovereignty with integration issue.
Meanwhile, Manipur-based insurgent group Revolutionary People�s Front (RPF) executive committee meeting in February this year had decided to support NSCN-IM�s movement for a sovereign Nagaland. But the RPF is ready to face any move against the interest of Manipur�s territorial integrity, publicity secretary T Leishemba of RPF said here in a press release. The front also resolved to encounter NSCN-IM�s move to destabilize the relationship among the revolutionary groups of the region.
But then the RPF will not change its brotherhood relationship with those ethnic groups living in Manipur, the release, narrating the recent killing of three of their cadres by NSCN-IM men at Vahoram Tangkhul village on October 19 last year, added. However, the Manipur-based outfit still keeps its doors open to hold discussion in connection with the changing trend, it said.
Three killed: Three bullet-ridden bodies of were recovered from Yairipok Nongbram Chanam Lok area in Manipur�s Imphal East district bordering Thoubal and Ukhrul districts today. Police have shifted the bodies to RIMS mortuary for identification and autopsy, sources said.
