DIMAPUR, MARCH 26 (MExN): The Yimchungrü Tribal Council (YTC) on Saturday appealed to all the Naga Political Groups (NPGs) to bear in mind the collective approach in order to find an honourable solution acceptable to all and which must be sincerely explored exclusively with all cross-sections of the Naga people.
Stating that “this public appeal as stakeholders also carries a political mandatory statement which should not be overlooked and surpassed,” YTC president, Keozih in a press statement said a consensus political approach and a model build upon it should be a base for the different political groups in broad-based consultations with all stakeholders. “And for which the different standards of positive and unbiased opinions, stands, and initiatives of the different groups should not be politically ignored,” it added.
The YTC pointed out that working in contradiction to the above approach and adopting the policy of exclusiveness amongst the different NPGs may lead to repeating the painful and unpleasant past, and to which the Nagas must not succumb.
“Devoid of political consensus and broad-based consultations amongst all sections of the Nagas would be self-inflicting and may consequently compel into leaving the socio-political fate and future of the Nagas at the hands of uncertainty of dark clouds hanging over our heads like the Sword of Damocles,” it maintained.
The Government of India is fundamentally reminded in good faith that the opinions and voices of the common people should be seriously considered in a democratic and republic country like India, the YTC also stated.
