NSCN (IM) slams cadre for 'Peace March' carrying Indian flag


DIMAPUR: The Nationalist Socialist Council Nagalim (Isaak-Muivah), NSCN (IM), objecting to the one-man Peace March across Nagaland by a Tankhul Naga from Manipur, YS Mashungmi, said that such a one-man operation with the sensitive political implication is not authorized by NSCN.

It also informed that security implication was taken into account to abort his Peace-March midway.

A press release by the NSCN (IM)\ said that YS Mashungmi is a bonafide cadre of the National Socialist Council of Nagalim (NSCN) who went for the so-called Peace March carrying both the national flags of India and Nagalim without taking the authority into confidence.

Reports of the one-man Peace March were all over the social media starting December 8, when the man was spotted in Dimapur carrying the Indian National Flag and draping Naga Flag around his body.

His March was to walk from Dimapur to Kohima, and reach Zunheboto by foot, for the future of the Nagas.

"His daring venture, no matter how patriotic it may appear in the eyes of the beholder amount to a violation of disciplinary code of conduct and security implication was also taken into account to abort his peace-march midway," said the NSCN (IM).

In the meantime, the update from the NSCN (IM) said that Mashungmi is being debriefed to establish the idea behind his Peace March.
