DIMAPUR, Aug 6 � The NSCN (Khole-Kitovi) today warned that an �exclusive and isolated political solution� with a single group without the consent of the Nagas will have no political validity.
In a release, the NSCN (Khole-Kitovi) said it has been a silently observing the recent �brouhaha� over alternative political arrangement, interim political body, present State Government�s position and so on.
While stating that the Alternative Political Arrangement for the Nagas of Manipur is well deserved for which the NSCN (Khole-Kitovi) under the leadership of President Gen (Retd) Khole Konyak and Ato Kilonser N Kitovi Zhimomi has declared their solidarity with the Naga brethren in Manipur, it said such an alternative arrangement will not cover the present State of Nagaland or Naga areas in Assam or Arunachal Pradesh. It would be a violation of trust and support of Naga people if it extends beyond Naga areas in Manipur, it stated.
The outfit said the 60-year-old Indo-Naga political problem and its solution demands Naga people�s participation with clear vision and direction. �If the reported political solution between the Centre and NSCN-IM, is truly a cherished Naga sovereignty and independence, even an orphan whose parents were killed by NSCN-IM will nod in agreement and maybe live in peace,� it said. However, it maintained that an �exclusive and isolated political solution, terminating Naga aspiration, discarding all documented reconciliation process among the political groups in recent times, is a disturbing political step�. �None should attempt to decorate oneself with medals and trophies clearly knowing such political moves brought untold misery and suffering into Nagaland in the past,� it added.
In this regard, the release sought to remind the Government of India that a �solution with a single group will drive the Nagas away further because unapproved political documents in the past that insulted Naga history were outrightly rejected by the Nagas�. Solution to the Indo-Naga Political problem without the consent of the Nagas has no political validity, it stated.
The NSCN (Khole-Kitovi) also said it would be wise on the part of the Nagaland legislators to tell the Naga people if the noble assurance to step down from power is based on the principle of the Naga Concordant signed by top leaders of the three Naga political groups on Aug 26, 2011, under the aegis of the FNR.
But it said Naga legislators in Manipur should also follow the same example if Alternative Political Arrangement for Nagas in Manipur is achieved.
