Reacting to the statement made by Union Minister of state for Home Affairs Kiren Rijiju that NSCN (K) cadre would be rehabilitated if they surrendered; the Konyak Union (KU) asked him how it is possible to settle the seven decade old Naga struggles through a so called rehabilitation package.

“Both Naypyidaw and New Delhi should sincerely understand the cultural, social, political and territorial sentiments and aspiration of the Nagas so as to culminate into a peaceful and early solution,” said KU, adding, “Such unfounded statement was indeed a shocker, saying how could Union MoS for Home could be so ignorant about the territorial extension and existence of its immediate neighbour?”

The union further clarified that Kachin is a tribe or state that occupied the Northeastern frontier of Myanmar and shared its Western boundaries with the Nagas, who occupied the Northwestern frontier under the Union of Myanmar. “Kachin and Nagas had co-existed as a good neighbour, there existed no territorial confusion but mutual respect for each other’s sentiments, aspiration and determination.”

They have also slammed the Republic TV for describing as shocker the Nagaland CM’s condolence message on the demise of NSCN/GPRN president SS Khaplang and how the doctored policies had lead to violence and the brand terrorist, “It is important for a responsible leader to express his grief during such hour. Republic TV should learn to appreciate the history of Nagas.”
