From our Correspondent
DIMAPUR, July 9: Against the backdrop of factional clashes between the rival NSCN (K) and GPRN/NSCN, the Naga Mother’s Association (NMA) has conveyed its appreciation to the NSCN (Khaplang) leadership for their declaration to shun violence and stop all forms of factional violence.
NMA in a press release issued by president, Abeiu Meru, and advisor, Rosemary Dzuvichu, appealed to the GPRN/NSCN (Khole-Kitovi) leadership to respond positively to the peace gesture of NSCN (K) and stop all forms of factional violence against each other. NMA reiterated that as mothers, the “ spate of killings has hurt and caused us great sorrow and anguish”.
“We acknowledge the maturity and wisdom of NSCN (K)’s decision and hope that this important step towards reconciliation will be reciprocated by the leadership at the Khehoi camp and bring an immediate end to factional violence and killings”, NMA said, while earnestly appealing to both groups to sit for talks in order to stop all forms of violence.
NMA also sought the immediate attention of the Central Government to enter into serious dialogue with the NSCN (K) to bring back peace in the land. It iterated “Nagas are one, irrespective of boundaries and our history irrevocably binds us to one another.”
NMA said that Naga mothers across the length and breadth of Naga areas, will want peace and reconciliation among all Naga “national workers”, to bring an honourable solution to the Naga issue.
