“Naga national flag and constitution represent the national identity of the Nagas,” said the joint council of NSCN (IM).
“Recognition of Naga national flag and the Constitution is about Nagas’ rights and a must for an honourable political solution,” the council reaffirmed.
The joint council held an emergency meeting recently and deliberated on the Indo-Naga political talks.
The joint council comprised NSCN (IM)’s collective leadership, members of the collective leadership, steering executive members, steering committee members, ministers, MPs among others.
In the meeting it was resolved that the political solution should be for the Nagas, irrespective of wherever they are.
“It is our bounden duty to uphold the unique history and sovereign rights of the Naga people that is in consonance with the historic 1951 Plebiscite,” the meeting resolved.
In the meeting it was also resolved to uphold the mandate of the Naga people, given to the NSCN on January 21, 2005, to conclude an honourable solution to the Indo- Naga political issue and the unification of all Naga areas.
The joint meeting further resolved that NSCN would continue to endeavour to conclude an “honourable political solution” that is acceptable to the Naga people.
The outfit also lambasted the Centre for maintaining a “double-standard policy”.
The outfit further cautioned the Centre against using its agencies to arrest and harass NSCN members who are in political negotiations for the past 22 years.
