NTC, NGBF appeal Khango and Isak to reconcile

Nagaland Tribes Council (NTC) and Nagaland GB Federation (NGBF) have fervently appealed to the two splinter groups of NSCN/GPRN (K)– one headed by ‘lt. gen.’ Khango Konyak and the other led by Isak Sumi, to reconcile and unite urgently.
In a joint statement, NTC and NGBF reminded the two groups that Nagas were currently passing through the most crucial period, with fate of the Naga political solution which remains elusive despite the negotiations having attained its 26th year.
While every sensible and right thinking Naga was serious about the outcome of the concluded negotiations, they said the recent dissention within the NSCN/GPRN (K) group was indeed shocking.
With NSCN/GPRN (K) being a part of the WC/NNPGs, NTC and NGBF questioned as to “what audacity it has to wrangle over any issue which is considered to be more important than the Naga political negotiation and its end result.”
They said any committed cadre of any group or any individual considering himself to be a patriot, was not expected to stoop low to indulge in mindless gimmicks by wasting valuable time at the cost of the Naga interest. “If any Naga Nationalist places oneself above the common cause one has to know that he is misplaced in his position,” the two organizations stated.
They said that it was unbecoming on the part of the group in particular, to dent the spirit of the negotiators in particular and of the Nagas in general “as if such internal bickering can fetch greater dividend to the Nagas.”
The two organizations reminded every cadre of the group to give importance to the common cause of the Nagas than giving due importance to its own. They also reminded the group “not to ever undermine the efforts made by the Nagas as a whole to attain the expected peace in our land, and the group in question must not become the obstacle to the process of peace.”
