NTC concerned over NSCN/GPRN(K) imbroglio

Nagaland Tribes Council (NTC) said it was upset by what had happened within NSCN/GPRN (K) since January 4 and the “contending leadership mêlée” that was rolling for all and sundry to see when it should pursue the Naga national goal.
NTC said this was a situation none could meddle and all could only hope that Naga leaders would surmount sanctimonious and sententiousness rhetoric with conviction in the name of Lord Jehovah.
It noted that NPGs have been insisting for early Naga solution based on the concluded talks with the Centre on October 31, 2019, and before the Assembly polls this year. The Naga populace was also eagerly awaiting the long-cherished and assured political solution to take place soon enough.
As this was the situation, NTC said it was time for all concerned to put enormous efforts to respect to love the hard-earned peaceful atmosphere for the benefit and growth of the future generation by not jeopardising what had been achieved thus far. As reconciliation had been seen to be offered by both quarters to resolve the issue, NTC appealed to all leadership concerned to seize the opportunity and quoted the word of God: “Bear with each other and forgive one another if any of you has a grievance against someone. Forgive as the Lord forgave you” (Colossians 3:13); and “…leave your gift there in front of the altar. First go and be reconciled…” (Matthew 5:24).
If Naga leaders were unwilling to reconcile with their own brothers, NTC said God would not accept the offerings at Naga nation’s altar nor they would be reconciled with the people. “This is the core point of our Lord’s Prayer and nothing can be more pertinent than this in our context,” the statement pointed out.
