PNH without integration not acceptable for the Naga tribes: NNPGs | MorungExpress

Dimapur, June 21 (MExN): The Naga National Political Groups (NNPG) Working Committee has stated that a “Pan Naga Hoho (PNH)” without integration would not be acceptable to the Naga tribes.

In a press release issued Tuesday through its media cell, the WC, NNPGs qualified the rationale and admission of the NSCN (IM) that the PNH is at an incubating stage and in the process of coming to fruition, of “scandalous”, while adding that it was “a determined plan for a backdoor entry into Nagaland in the near future.

The WC, NNPGs argued that the Government of India (GoI) had “officially declared on several occasions that the current border of Manipur State will not be disturbed; therefore GoI and WC, NNPG have negotiated and agreed in principle to provide appropriate and adequate political space for the Nagas of Manipur, Arunachal Pradesh and Assam to practice, promote and strengthen the traditions, culture, custom and distinct identity of the Naga in the divided countries. Naga homeland, through honorable political and administrative arrangements without disturbing state boundaries.

However, he claimed that the Naga tribes, particularly in the state of Nagaland, “were taken for a ride”, as few NSCN(IM) leaders demanded that the Indian government “allow them to set up an authoritarian regime in Nagaland”.

Stating that the Naga pioneers, in 1929, submitted a memorandum to the British Statutory Commission “because they clearly sensed and foresaw an extraterrestrial destructive political philosophy taking shape in the Naga homeland”, the WC, NNPGs went on to state that today Today, “communism-socialist a philosophy inspired from within Nagas, in the form of a heinous PNH fueled by a despicable code called Yehzabo, is marketed in Nagaland.

“This political philosophy only exists in the imagination of a few Southern Naga IM leaders” and “will have no buyers in Nagaland,” he said.

“There are clearly demarcated mountains, valleys and streams declaring an indigenous domain for each Naga tribe, whether in Nagaland or Naga regions in other states. Nagaland practices a robust democratic ethic inherent in the villages, a careful community structure and, above all, a strong physical, emotional and spiritual connection to the land and its resources,” he said.

He further stated that the NSCN(IM) “forgot some fundamental natural laws of Nagaland in its PNH and Yehzabo plan which even the GoI in negotiations honored and recognized.”

According to the WC, NNPGs, “there are certain inalienable rights of the Naga tribes in Nagaland from which the Southern Naga leaders within IM must stay clear. Nagaland or for that matter Naga areas in other states have their own indigenous Naga tribe inhabiting a particular area with full communal ownership, no part of it may be ceded to another tribe or may be declared common property of all Naga now or in the future.

Diversity among Nagas from different states, ancestral lands and rights cannot be undone and erased in a small room in Hebron or Delhi camp through HNP or Yehzabo, he claimed , adding that “even the GoI dare not interfere and infringe inalienable elements because they know that the thread which unites the Indians and the Nagas will be broken.

“Similarly, the ties which unite the Nagas of Nagaland and the Nagas of Manipur will be severed when the propaganda of sentimentality, philosophical narrative and romanticization of the problem are applied to subvert and subvert the extraordinary private life of each Naga tribe, their possessions above and below their feet. History and identity, whether between Indians and Nagas or between Nagas, cannot be changed or challenged,” he added.
