Mokokchung, 8 March (MTNews): The National Socialist Council of Nagalim (NSCN-IM) has expressed strong opposition to the setting up of a UNLF/MPA designated camp in Naga territory in Manipur without the consent or knowledge of the Naga public.

The NSCN-IM in a press release on Friday condemned the “reckless intrusion” and demanded that the United National Liberation Front (UNLF) designated camp in Naga territory must be shifted immediately.

It said that when the government of India and NSCN signed a ceasefire to process the political talks, everything was formally discussed and arrangements were made accordingly with regards to setting up of designated camps.

However, in the case of the government of India and UNLF, it said setting up designated camps was handled in a haphazard manner without considering the geopolitical sentiment.

In this respect, the NSCN (IM) questioned if the Government of India was trying to incite communal war between the Meiteis and the Nagas. “All these confusions should be done away with lest undesirable consequences arise,” it stated.

The NSCN-IM stated that it has been following the development with much “curiosity and interest” ever since the government of India and UNLF(Pambei)entered into a peace agreement while adding that “it is the primary duty of NSCN to protect its people and geopolitical issue.”

This, it said, encompasses various aspects such as safeguarding the rights and well-being of the Nagas, defending against external threats, and preserving the territorial integrity of Nagalim. By doing this, NSCN-IM aims to create a “stable and secure environment where its territory is not intruded by unauthorized people or organizations.”
