Guwahati: The National Socialist Council of Nagaland-Isak Muivah (NSCN-IM) declared Tuesday that it has had “enough in the hands of the Assam Rifles (AR)” and that it is now time to say “enough is enough” in response to the killing of two of its cadres by security forces in Tirap, Arunachal Pradesh.
NSCN (I-M) stated that what happened in Tirap had gotten on its nerves, after the Nginu killing more than a year ago.
However, this time round, NSCN is not going to take the things lying down, it added.
Group claimed that deliberately killing two of its cadres while knowing they were not members of the NSCN-K (YA) was something we can no longer tolerate.
Meanwhile, the NSCN (I-M) has urged the Indian government for a ” decisive answer” on the status of the “Indo-Naga ceasefire” in Arunachal Pradesh.
The Assam Riffles had “gone too aggressive” on several occasions to get the best of the Cease Fire Ground Rules (CFGRs) to fit its “devilish design against NSCN, which exercised a gentleman attitude all the way to honour the CFGRs,” according to the group.
If the mindless attack against NSCN continues continuous under one pretext or another, the NSCN is prepared to unleash unrestrained anger to give the AR in Arunachal Pradesh sleepless nights, the statement added.
The Arunachal Pradesh Chief Minister and his Deputy Chief Minister engaged in a political conspiracy to eliminate the Sagas’ ethnic identity in the state, which has been on the NSCN’s radar for some time. The NSCN would leave no stone unturned in its efforts to ensure that no Naga MLAs or Ministers go free on charges of supporting anti-Naga socio-political stand, said it.
Furthermore, group said that NSCN has not sent troops to Arunachal Pradesh to cause trouble or to provoke the trigger-happy AR. It is our prerogative to exercise it. It is our right to contribute to the establishment of peace in our land in order to achieve the goal of the ceasefire agreement signed 25 years ago.
However, the Ministry of Horne Affairs (MHA) of the Indian government believes there is no ceasefire in Arunachal Pradesh, then be it, statement added.
