Im­phal: The Isak Muivah fac­tion of the Na­tional So­cial­ist Coun­cil of Na­ga­land fac­tion (NSCN-IM) has claimed that the Cen­tre has recog­nised the le­gal rights of Na­gas and pro­claimed “in­te­gra­tion of their le­git­i­mate rights.” The out­fit said there would be a his­tor­i­cal trans­for­ma­tion for the Na­gas soon.

NSCN-IM claimed that there were some in­di­vid­u­als try­ing to sab­o­tage peace talk be­tween the NSCN-IM and the Cen­tre by pro­ject­ing “Na­gas of Na­ga­land.”

In a news re­lease on Fri­day the out­fit said, “the Gov­ern­ment of In­dia has recog­nised the le­gal rights of the Na­gas and can­didly pro­claimed in­te­gra­tion the le­git­i­mate right of the Na­gas.” Whether we like it or not there is go­ing to be a trans­for­ma­tion in the his­tory of the Na­gas very soon.” The frame­work agree­ment inked be­tween the Cen­tre and NSCNIM is a poll is­sue in Ma­nipur. NSCNIM said that the Frame­work Agree­ment has be­come a mile­stone for Na­gas, though some ‘greedy peo­ple’ were try­ing to re­but the Frame­work Agree­ment with­out any de­cency.

“Prime Min­is­ter of In­dia, Naren­dra Modi, ever since be­com­ing the Prime Min­is­ter of In­dia has been deeply con­cerned in re­solv­ing the pro­tracted Naga po­lit­i­cal is­sue. He also pro­nounced this Frame­work Agree­ment as a shin­ing ex­am­ple of what In­dia can achieved and not only mark this his­toric agree­ment merely the end of the prob­lem but the be­gin­ning of a new era and said the


Cen­tre will not only try to heal the wounds and re­solved the prob­lem but also be a part of Naga pride and pres­tige and de­clared the Na­galim as the guardian of the eastern fron­tier and the gate­way to the world.”

“The Cen­tre will also join the Na­gas in shap­ing the fu­ture and dig­nity of Na­gas as we dawn a new glo­ri­ous chap­ter with sense of self con­fi­dent and self-re­spect,” the news re­lease said.

“At this cru­cial stage, when the en­tire Naga pop­u­lace are sin­cerely yearn­ing for the fi­nal set­tle­ment, there are some in­di­vid­u­als try­ing to sab­o­tage the peace talk be­tween the NSCN and GoI by pro­ject­ing a new means as ‘Na­gas of Na­ga­land’ and spread­ing venom to mis­lead the peo­ple by their men­ac­ing atro­cious strat­egy,” the or­gan­i­sa­tion al­leged.
