IMPHAL, Jun 10: In a major shakeup, Lt Gen (retd) Khango Konyak was appointed to the post of NSCN-K Vice-Chairman according to an approval order issued by GPRN/NSCN Chairman SS Khaplang on May 25.

Meanwhile, General Secretary N Kitovi Zhimomi has been expelled from the party with effect from June 10 by another order issued by Chairman SS Khaplang.

“I in my own capacity and in the capacity as the Chairman of the party has for too long patiently overlooked the mistakes he has committed in the past. But today, his expulsion from the party has become a necessity to save the party from further deterioration and confusion”, the expulsion order read.

The Chairman has also ordered expulsion of Azheto Chophy and members of the Unification group from the party with effect from today.

The NSCN has decided to expel all the members of the Unification group led by Azheto Chophy for misguiding the Nation and for creating mistrust among the national workers.

In addition, the NSCN Chairman has also expelled Ministry of chaplee Deputy Kilonser Angpa Konyak, Ministry of Lotha Kilonser Athrom Konyak, Kilonser Seochem Sangtam, Kilonser Yimto Yimchunger, Kilonser Jack Zhimomi, Kilonser Jungshi Wati for allegedly conniving with the Unification group and for their anti-party activities.

The NSCN pulled out of the reconciliation process, not because it was against it but because of the intentional violation of the resolved resolution by the other participating group.

“Unfortunately, Zhimomi continued his meeting with those groups even when many national workers were bleeding in the hands of the reactionaries. It is nothing but a blatant insult to the national workers which is not acceptable”, SS Khaplang asserted.

According to the approval order issued to the press belatedly, Khango Konyak was unanimously elected to the post through the people’s council by a vote of majority.

He was first enrolled in the Naga Army in 1963. In 1966, he was sent to Pakistan under Alee (Foreign) command. He has also visited China in the year 1976.

“Lt Gen Konyak as a true and brave soldier has commanded the Naga Army, in various capacities as Mobile Commander, Battalion Operations as well as Brigade Commander. He also served as Council Guard commander in 1985 and GSO-II (General Staff Officer) in 2004 at General Headquarters”, the approval order mentioned. Apart from military services, Khango Konyak was selected to the post of Chairman, Konyak Region in 1989. He also served as the president of the Tuensang-Mon Regional Union. He was finally elected to the people’s council as Central Council Member (CCM).He was later inducted as the Kilo Kilonser, GPRN for his dedication and commitment.  Taking due cognizance of his efficiency accompanied with vast experience, Khango Konyak was elected to the post Vice-Chairman on May 20, 2011. “Lt Gen (retd) Konyak in addition to his office as the Vice-Chairman will continue tool after the Ministry of Home Affairs with immediate effect”, added the approval order.
