NSCN (I-M) reaffirms stand on Framework Agreement

Says, nothing more sacred than safeguarding Naga national identity

NSCN (I-M) has asserted that nothing was more sacred for it than defending Naga national principles in safeguarding the Naga national identity.
NSCN (I-M) in its January 2023 bulletin editorial of the ‘Nagalim Voice’, stated this was the test of true revolutionary spirit and commitment to Naga national cause.
It said Nagas were today at the crossroads if the they could withstand the pressure that had been mounted under enticing slogan “Modi for peace and development”. However, NSCN (I-M) said that for the Nagas, Modi must first respect his own commitment to Framework Agreement in order to pave the way for peace and development. That was the starting point for Nagas’ pride and identity, it specified.
“Seven years ago we worked out the historic Framework Agreement with the Government of India based on the unique Naga history and Naga national principle. Last year when the Indo-Naga political talks were going through rough patch with unpredictable situation, Emergency National Assembly was convened at GHQ, Naga Army whereby Naga National decision was taken to uphold and protect Naga unique history and Naga national principle at any cost and thereby to stand by the sanctity of the Framework Agreement that was signed on the foundation of respect for and recognition of the sovereignty of the two entities-Nagalim and India,” the bulletin stated.
According to NSCN (I-M), this also signified that the sovereignty of Nagas was acknowledged in conjunction with Naga National flag and constitution.
That being the case, NSCN (I-M) asserted that, come what may, it would stand the ground to defend the historical and political rights.
Therefore, it insisted that the line had to be drawn to identify what was sacrosanct, what was negotiable and what was not negotiable in order to avoid messing up the Naga political issue and undermine the sanctity of Indo-Naga political dialogue as established by Framework Agreement.
