New Ray Of Hope Dawns On FNR Move

DIMAPUR, Mar 8: After days of uncertainty and tension, a ray of hope has dawned on the Naga reconciliation process after the NSCN-K, NSCN-IM and FGN/NNC met today in Dimapur in the presence of the members of Forum for Naga Reconciliation (FNR) and said that they ‘realized the urgency’ of the highest level ‘summit’ of the three groups.

The highest level summit implies a meeting of the top most leaders of the three Naga underground organizations as part of the Naga reconciliation process.

All has not been well regarding the three year old Naga reconciliation process in recent time.

A few days ago, the NSCN faction led by SS Khaplang and FGN/NNC had announced that their leaders chairman SS Khaplang and Kedahke Brig (Retd) S Singnya would not be participating in the forthcoming highest level summit ‘in the light of the ‘present unfortunate military offensive’ by NSCN- IM’ in eastern Nagaland.

However, on Tuesday in Dimapur, the three groups with VS Atem representing the NSCN-IM, C Singson representing the NSCN-K and Zhopra Vero representing the FGN/NNC under the aegis of the ‘joint working group’ of the three Naga underground organizations jointly inked another clause saying that the ‘highest level meeting’ of the three Naga underground groups is their priority and “we will not swerve from the commitment made before God and to the Naga people.”  Meanwhile, the Forum for Naga Reconciliation (FNR) under whose initiative the Naga reconciliation process started three years ago, admitted, “It is prudent on the part of the Forum for Naga Reconciliation to honestly inform the Naga public that the Naga reconciliation process has slowed down and a stalemate has been reached.

However, it is also important to declare that the GPRN/NSCN, NNC/FGN and the NSCN/GPRN remain fully committed to the Naga reconciliation process. Therefore at this very crucial juncture, the Forum for Naga Reconciliation turns to the Naga people to intervene and help break the stalemate and to encourage the Naga political groups take decisive and constructive steps forward to reconciliation”.

The Naga Reconciliation: A Journey of Common Hope has now entered into its fourth year. The FNR said, in the last 36 months, significant and decisive steps have been taken to further the reconciliation process and to bring an end to violence among the Naga political groups. While armed confrontation has significantly decreased, the periodic acts of violence across the Naga homeland and the circular arguments of self-justifications have constantly threatened the reconciliation process. These have put to test the resolve and commitment of the Naga political groups to genuine reconciliation, the FNR added.
