‘GPRN/NSCN’ refutes allegation

 Denying allegations by the All Zeliangrong Students’ Union of Assam, Manipur $ Nagaland (AZSU-AMN) that the Dimasa outfit, the DHD(J) was being allowed to infiltrate into Peren district in connivance with a Naga armed faction, which appeared in a section of the local papers, the ‘GPRN/NSCN’ said no such relationship existed and dismissed the allegation as an assumption.
The publicity wing of the ‘GPRN/NSCN’ clarified that its designated camp at Hatibung was raided by a combined force of Assam Rifles and IRB “on the false pretext” of sheltering DHD activists but added, the raid was futile as no evidence whatsoever was found.
It blamed the allegation on “anti-Naga forces” bent on derailing “the ongoing bilateral peace initiative”.
The release said while maintaining good neighbourly relations and holding no ill will against the DHD or other outfits, the ‘GPRN/NSCN’ believed in non interference in the national affairs among various outfits.
It also criticized the installation of check gates by the Assam Rifles and IRB near the periphery of its camp in Hatibung ,allegedly causing harassment and inconveniences to its members.
On the contrary, it said, despite cease fire agreement, the rival NSCN (I-M) members were allegedly moving around in civilian areas “in full military gear ,openly setting camp and bunkers at Khukeye village; checking at Old Shouba and sheltering at Neiphiu Rio’s plantation near Shouba and other places. Moving in town dressed in IRB uniform and armed” and also allegedly moving in vehicles with police registration numbers.
The outfit has demanded that in consonance with the CSFB meeting resolutions, the central and state law enforcement agencies should be implemented in “letter and in spirit”.
