“The Naga people will be forced to never allow another political abduction if the ongoing political talks in Indo-Naga have already signed the framework agreement to annihilate all agreements of the past,” the NSCN added. The solemn and unanimous resolution of the NPC is to save the hopes and aspirations of the Naga people, he said, adding that the agreement was conceived and drawn up with great caution and prudence taking into account all the societal and societal realities that prevail to serve as the basis for an honourable solution to the Naga question. After the meeting, the convention reached, without the agreement, support and participation of the Naga people, a 16-point agreement, which was responsible for the creation of Nagaland as the 16th state of the Indian Union. The agreement fragmented the Indian-occupied Naga territories into different administrative units in Assam, Manipur and Arunachal Pradesh. “I salute their extraordinary courage and political maturity, because if they do not allow themselves to be overwhelmed by people`s emotions, they have been able to judge what was in their best interest,” he said. As the only living signatory to the agreement, Jamir said that the NPC has always strived to create a favourable political environment in the region in order to clearly and unambiguously underline the basis of the Nagas` legitimate demands and protracted political aspirations before the Indian government. In his speech, Governor RN Ravi said today that many of us could only try to imagine the exceptional circumstances in which people walked together, kept a cool head and made all the decisions that were best placed for those caught in crossfire. . . . After a thorough review of the historical and political archives of the National Council of Naga, the NPC adopted Article 371 (A) as one of the most important requirements during negotiations with the Prime Minister of India in 1960, he said. .
“Ravis Stand is condemned by the NSCN and the people of Naga,” says a press release from the “Ministry of Information and Public Relations” of the outfit. . “For the Nagas, the creation of the state of Nagaland was recorded as an act of insult to freedom fighters in particular and to the Naga people in general, because of manipulation and treason. For such an insidious act, which comes to life in the name of the memory of the formation of the state of Nagaland, we condemn such an act of defiance,” said the NSCN. The 16-point agreement signed in 1960 between the Naga People`s Convention (NPC) and the Indian government resulted in the creation of Nagaland State in 1963.
