NSCN (IM) Refuses to Budge on Separate Flag & Constitution for Nagas


Kohima, February 28, 2020:

The Isaak Miuvah faction of the Nationalist Socialist Council of Nagalim (NSCN) on February 27 reaffirmed its stand demanding a separate flag and a Constitution for the Naga people.

In a statement released by the organization, they once again reiterated their demand for a separate flag and Constitution for the Naga people. "That, the Naga National flag and Constitution represent our national identity, and the recognition is absolutely a matter of Nagas for an honourable political solution", the communique stated.

Moreover, the NSCN stated that the solution that will be provided by the Centre shall be a political solution of Nagas wherever they are, irrespective of the location or boundaries.

The NSCN further exhorted the Government to unite all Naga inhabited areas to conclude an "honourable solution".

In the same statement, the NSCN also "strongly condemned" the Government for using its agencies such as the National Investigation Agency (NIA) to "arrest and harass the members of the NSCN who are in political negotiations with the Government for the past twenty two (22) years."
