Amid the ongoing talks between the Centre and the Naga stakeholders which includes the NSCM (IM) and the NNPG. The NSCN (IM) has come with a statement involving the Naga political issue.
"We Nagas have come a long way, the travails that had touched the 74th years ever since we declared Naga Independence on 14th August, 1947. God never fail us though we fail to meet His calling in many ways. We have gone through two ceasefire agreements with the Government of India. The second-Indo-Naga ceasefire is still in operation that is taking the Indo-Naga political talks to the crucial stage. We give immense thanks to our Almighty God for bringing us this far.
We are taken aback with great dismay as some of our respectable Naga organizations cheated themselves and Naga nation as they treacherously ignored the historical and political significance of defending the Naga flag and constitution. For the past more than 70 years we have gone through blood, sweats and tears fighting under the banner of Naga flag. Our constitution (Yehzabo) guides us who we are and how we function as distinct people who will go to any extent to defend our lands. Any organization or individuals who are falling in line with Ravi are to be classified as anti-Nagas. The Naga people will not forgive those who are trying to kill the rights of the Naga people by supporting India’s suppressive policy. We will never sign any agreement that affects the freedom of our future generations. We will not betray our God who gave us the right and conscience to live as a free nation. That was the reason why we adopted the slogan “Nagalim for Christ.”
